Open Book, Thursday, July 13, 2023, 1-3 p.m.

Property owners have the opportunity to discuss the value of their property at Open Book. Open Book is a conference, either face-to-face or over the phone, with the City's assessor to discuss the value of their property. A typical open book meeting lasts about 15 minutes. Property owners should share a recent appraisal, evidence of value, and any recent sales. The assessor will share their sales analysis and explain how they came to your new value. Property owners have until 48 hours before Board of Review to contact the assessor about a new value. When available, appointments can be scheduled with the assessor here:  or by calling 920-749-8098.

Board of Review, Thursday, August  3, 2023, 4-6 p.m.

Following Open Book is the Board of Review. The Board of Review functions like court and is required to evaluate evidence based on facts. Property owners or their representative must provide factual evidence that their property is inequitably assessed. The burden of proof is solely on the taxpayer. The assessor’s value is presumed correct by state law until proven otherwise.

Please attend the Open Book prior to making an appointment for Board of Review. Property owners can set an appointment for the Board of Review by contacting the City Clerk's office. All original signed paper Objection Forms Packet must be submitted to the City Clerk no later than 4 p.m. 48 hours prior to the Board of Review.
