Changes in land valuation

The Rural Property Trends Roadshow will focus on current and proposed changes in land valuation and assessment for the Kansas farmer, rancher, banker, community leader, city and county government official as well as business leader and rural home owners.

With the Agri-Business Council of Wichita as a sponsor, all council members are invited to attend the Wichita session.

The program was created to give KARL class graduates a continuing education on how to address challenges and opportunities in Kansas agriculture. Each workshop is designed to start a dialogue between landowners, producers, homeowners, financiers and public officials on timely issues.

To register, contact the KARL office at 785-532-6300 or email jlierz@ksu.edu.

The cost is $75 per person and there is a registration form to complete the process.
