Fee to Appear on Starke County Tax Bills in 2014


Starke County residents will see a specific fee on tax statements in 2014.

Treasurer Kasey Clark told WKVI that the solid waste fee will be on the spring tax statement. She said the fee, which is around $20 in some cases, will be a separate item on the tax bill and will be due when the regular property taxes are due in her office in May.

This is not actually a new fee, but a solid waste fee that residents have been receiving from the Starke County Environmental Management office. The fee will just be merged onto the tax statements in 2014 and beyond. The fee is used to help maintain recycling bins throughout the county and to sponsor the environment day in the spring.

If you have any questions, direct them to the treasurer’s office by calling (574) 772-9111.
