AbitibiBow challenges Fort Frances taxes

Concern is being expressed by the town of Fort Frances over AbitibiBowater's decision to appeal its property assessment back to 2009.  Mayor Roy Avis says if the company is successful, the loss in tax revenue would equate to an 8-point-4 per tax increase.  There is no word yet when the Assessment Review Board will discuss the appeal.
