MOORHEAD – The city is pumping money into its tax fight with Menard Inc.
The company has argued that its Moorhead store, which produces about $200,000 in property taxes each year, is overvalued.
Officials in Moorhead and Clay County in 2014 decided to fight the company's assertion in Minnesota Tax Court.
On Monday, the Moorhead City Council met in closed session to discuss the case and then voted to put $7,500 toward the legal fight.
The Clay County Commission will receive an update on the case Tuesday in a closed session from Chief Assistant County Attorney Jenny Samarzja.
The Menards store at 3000 27th Ave. S. is worth $12.7 million, according to the city of Moorhead.
