Taken for Granted?

Have you heard the one about the Township Assessor who was thrown out of office? The voters caught him working both sides of the street.

Haha, as readers of this blog are aware ...
Second Opinions from Grant Township
the Grant Township Assessor's Office is sending mixed signals. One document sent to a homeowner suggests that his Wooster Lake property is assessed subject to No-Wake restrictions. While another document, given to the same homeowner, suggests the property is appraised as NOT being subject to No-Wake restrictions.

This same homeowner, understandably confused, asked Lake County State's Attorney Michael Nerheim for a legal opinion:
Whether there are no wake restrictions on Wooster lake is a legal issue for a judge to decide. As for the representations of the Grant Township Assessor that may have been made in connection with a property assessment at a property tax hearing, those representations do nothing to alter my position.
Office of the State's Attorney, Lake County, Illinois

One source close to the State's Attorney Office told your LakeCountyEye (on condition of anonymity): "Move along. There is nothing else to see here."

That's all your LakeCountyEye has. Move along. There is nothing else to see here.

Wanted: New State's Attorney said...

Which is it State's Attorney Nerheim? Is the Grant Assessor fabricating and submitting bull$hit documents in tax hearings to cheat some citizens out of their money? Or is there "nothing to see here"?

This sounds like Lt. Frank Drebin of "Naked Gun" standing in front of an exploding fireworks factory ignited by a warhead missle that was trucked into it and saying "Nothing to see here, Folks. Please disperse."
