Washington County agricultural land valuations will increase by 46-percent this year, while agricultural buildings will rise by eight to nine percent. Assessor Lil Perry says both of those will be decreased through a 35-percent state rollback. Perry says this is one of the largest rollbacks in recent years. She says sometimes there isn't one at all. Perry also says Washington County is usually average in its local valuation increases, and this year was no different.
