The importance of Hubbard County's waters came into clarity Wednesday as Assessor Bob Hansen unveiled the economic clout lake properties wield.


Of the county's 23,796 real estate parcels, 8,949, or 37.6 percent, are "water influenced," meaning they're on a lake, river or pond.

That 37.6 percent of parcels comprises 60.6 percent of the taxable market value (TMV) of all Hubbard County properties with some minor exceptions.
