Valuation notices are heading out to Lyon County residents Friday.
County Appraiser Gary Stapp tells KVOE News the overall trend is towards higher valuation, especially with rural properties.
On the flip side, residential housing valuation has dipped with Emporia's older homes.
Stapp says people can call 341-3302 if they have valuation concerns. Residents can also request an appeal hearing immediately. The deadline to request an appeal is March 31, with appeals heard through May 15 at the latest -- but normally wrapping up no later than May 1.
