Property tax appeal
Pine Grove Area School District won its appeal in court to have a property located in Washington Township increased in value, which will result in an increase in property tax payment. A five-acre tract of land with a nine-room home at 46 Summer Hill Road and owned by Du Van Tran had its market value increased by President Judge Willliam E. Baldwin from $155,421 to $342,000, which increased the assessed valuation of the property for 2010 taxes to $136,458.
