Tama Co. Supervisors object to more land placement in Sac and Fox Tribal Trust

Citing an estimated loss and additional $2,200 annually in property tax revenue and loss of knowledge of land use, the Tama County Board of Supervisors voted 3-0 on Monday, April 2, to protest the placement of 22.21 acres of ground in Toledo Township into the Sac and Fox Tribe Tribal Trust. Voting to submit letters of objection were 1st District Supervisor Larry Vest, 2nd District Supervisor Kendall Jordan and 3rd District Supervisor Dan Anderson.

The supervisors claim a total of about $588,708 is lost annually in county property tax receipts as the result of 6,338 acres the Tribe currently has in trust.
