The DuBois Area School Board recently approved conducting appraisals on the Walmart and Sandy Plaza properties to contest real estate tax appeals by the two companies.

The board voted to approve paying Valbridge Property Advisors of Pittsburgh to perform an appraisal on both properties at a cost of $4,000 for Walmart at 20 Industrial Drive and $5,500 for the Sandy Plaza located at Route 255 and Shaffer Road.

The three taxing authorities, Clearfield County, Sandy Township and the school district will share the cost of the appraisals, with each paying a share proportional to its share of the real estate taxes on the properties.
