Open Book refers to a period of time when the completed assessment roll is open for examination. This period of time is an opportunity to discuss the assessed value of a property in the City with the assessor. Residents may request a change to their assessed value during the Open Book. The Board of Review will hear evidence and testimony for any formal objections to assessments and decide if changes should be made. Under state law, the Board of Review must presume the assessor’s valuation is correct unless the objector provides sufficient evidence to overcome that presumption.
Anyone with questions about their assessment can call 920-749-1995. For more information on the appeal process, contact Michelle Ebbert, City Clerk/Treasurer/Finance Director at 920-563-7760.
