Medina County Property Values Update 2016

Medina County Auditor Mike Kovack recently sent letters to Wadsworth property owners in regards to new valuation of property.  State law mandates that property values are reviewed every three years.

An increase in your valuation does not mean you will automatically pay more in taxes on voted school levies.  HB920, passed in 1976, freezes school income on voted mills the moment the levy is passed.  If inflation has caused the value of the property to increase, the auditor cuts the school tax rate so schools do not receive more money.

Online Emergency Medical Form (InfoSnap Access)

Wadsworth City Schools will be utilizing InfoSnap for the 2016-2017 school year to gather student emergency medical information.
