Taney County’s new assessor was sworn into office this week and has hit the ground running as far as taking over the duties of his office. Former presiding commissioner Chuck Pennel won the assessor election last November, but took office after September 1st in accordance with state statutes.

Pennel says the assessor’s office needs an additional vehicle and camera to accommodate a third appraisal team. He formally requested those items from the county commission.

Pennel says his biggest challenge, other than working to become compliant with the State Tax Commission, is learning how to operate and possibly improve the department’s computer program, which has caused complications over the last few years.
