Hunt County – There could be a new County Appraiser in Hunt County as early as tonight. The Hunt County Appraisal District's Board of Directors is set to interview three finalists for the position tonight. Long-time appraiser Mildred Compton announced her retirement in January.
The Hunt County Appraisal District had come under fire in recent years for having property valued below state values, which meant less state funding for school districts throughout the county. Values for residential properties are now in-line with state values, but commercial property values are still lagging behind.
The interviews will occur following the regular meeting of the Board of Directors at 6pm tonight at the Hunt County Appraisal District Office on King Street in Greenville
