City of Finley Welcomes All The New Projects Coming Up In Town! 

The Finley Farmers Grain & Elevator Company has a couple of big additions coming up in the community! They have not only had a business merger with Farmers Elevator of Cooperstown effective September 1. 2016, they are building, building, building! 

First, there is a new truck receiving system coming up on the south side of Finley. It will include a two-story probe building and an inbound truck scale. Trucks will be probed, graded, and weighed south of town (next to Archer bin site) and be dispatched to various dumping locations in town. The outbound scale will be placed north of the north elevator. Second, you will notice a locomotive shed in town to house the second locomotive the Finley Farmers Grain & Elevator Company acquired.

Third, and the largest of these projects are the construction of the new grain load out facility where the old fertilizer plant was located. The project began in August of 2016 and has an estimated completion date of September 2017. This big project will bring efficiency and many benefits to the elevator, farmers, and the community. Great projects that only make Finley better!

More Growth in Finley North Dakota!

Attention Steele County Residents:

VANGUARD UPDATE: (December 21, 2017)

Vanguard reps are done with the residential data collection at this time. They will return back in the Spring of 2018 to start on  Commercial property data collection and finish up the last few Residential property stragglers. BUT, as of now, they are done with their data collection for a couple months. The basic timeline is as follows:

  • Spring of 2018: Commercial/Industrial/Grain Elevators will have data collectors come out and ask to see the property/tour the property/do data collections

  • Early Fall of 2018: Review teams come out and go over each parcel of property (will review from the road, will not be asking for entry into properties) to do their quality assurance/control

  • Feb 1, 2019: valuations will be available for review for residents, township boards of equalization, etc

Thank you ALL for your understanding throughout this process. More to come at a later date, but have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!!

If you have any questions please contact the Steele County Tax Director, Ben Gates, by cell phone at 701-270-1738.
