County Commissioners Learn More About McComb-Pleasant Township Property Line Issue

6/29/18 – 5:18 A.M.

If the boundary lines between McComb and Pleasant Township change, the township would lose around 37 percent of its property valuation. Hancock County Auditor Charity Rauschenberg updated the county commissioners on the issue Thursday. Assistant prosecutor Cindy Land says a hearing on the topic will likely happen by the end of July.

Earlier this month McComb officials asked the commissioners to legally separate parts of the village from the township. As it stands now properties annexed into the village still pay real estate taxes to the township in some instances.

McComb officials say the overlapping boundaries “don’t allow for efficient use of time or resources.”
