How do I dispute the assessed value of my property?

Appearing before the Board of Review is the first step in the appeal process for an individual property owner who protests an assessment.  The Property owner cannot pursue subsequent avenues of appeal for an individual assessment unless a formal objection has been made to the Board of Review.  Objection forms are available at the City Clerk's office (673-8202).  When appearing before the Board the person shall specify in writing the person's estimate of the value of land and of the improvements that are the subject of the person's objection and specify the information that the person utilized to arrive at that estimate.  The Board of Review meets on an annual basis, i.e., any time during the 30 day period beginning on the second Monday in May.

May I attend a meeting of a City Board, Committee or Commission?

Yes!  The public is encouraged to attend meetings.  Most meet in the City Hall's Council Chambers located in the lower level of City Hall.  See the Appointments Page for meeting schedules.  The Council Chambers is easily accessed from the Johnson Street parking lot behind City Hall.  Enter the door just to the south of the garage door on the west side of the building.  Please call ahead (262-673-8202) if you require special handicap accommodations or plan to attend with a large group.  


May I appear before the Common Council or another Committee, Commission or Board?

Yes!  All meetings of Commissions, Committees and Boards are open to the public and allow for limited public input (except during CLOSED SESSIONS).  The body may or may not immediately address your issue at their discretion. More information about appearing before a public body may be obtained by contacting the City Clerk's office at least one week in advance of the scheduled meeting at (262) 673-8202.
