COLUMBUS, OH (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Questions still remain about the value of the closed Germain Amphitheater in spite of a court ruling. Controversy has surrounded the property over exactly how much in the way of taxes are owed on the site.
According to the Columbus Dispatch, the Ohio Supreme Court has ruled unanimously that the Delaware County Board of Revision had not made its case that the land without the amphitheater is worth $13.7 million. Justices did not however, settle on the $7.2 million figure provided by the venue's appraisers and instead ordered the county to re-appraise the property.
The property tax bills date back to 2003 and 2004 and have been a point of contention since then. The 20,000-seat amphitheater is operated by Live Nation but the promoter has not scheduled any events at the shed this year and they are reportedly looking for potential buyers for the property.- CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
