Please be advised of the following requirements to appear before the board of review and procedural requirements if appearing before the board:

1.       No person shall be allowed to appear before the board of review, to testify to the board by telephone, or to contest the amount of any assessment of real or personal property if the person has refused a reasonable written request by certified mail of the assessor to enter onto property to conduct an exterior view of such property being assessed.

2.       After the first meeting of the board of review and before the board’s final adjournment, no person who is scheduled to appear before the board of review may contact or provide information to a member of the board about the person’s objection, except at a session of the board. Open book shall occur no less than 7 days prior to the board of review.

3.       The board of review may not hear an objection to the amount or valuation of property unless, at least 48 hours before the board’s first scheduled meeting, the objector provides to the board’s clerk written or oral notice of an intent to file an objection, except that upon a showing of good cause and the submission of a written objection, the board shall waive that requirement during the first 2 hours of the board’s first scheduled meeting, and the board may waive that requirement up to the end of the 5th day of the session or up to the end of the final day of the session if the session is less than 5 days with proof of extraordinary circumstances for failure to meet the 48-hour notice requirement and failure to appear before the board of review during the first 2 hours of the first scheduled meeting.

4.       Objections to the amount or valuation of property shall first be made in writing and filed with the clerk of the board of review within the first 2 hours of the board’s first scheduled meeting, except that, upon evidence of extraordinary circumstances, the board may waive that requirement up to the end of the 5th day of the session or up to the end of the final day of the session if the session is less than 5 days. The board may require such objections to be submitted on forms approved by the department of revenue, and the board shall require that any forms include stated valuations of the property in question. Persons who own land and improvements to that land may object to the aggregate valuation of that land and improvements to that land, but no person who owns land and improvements to that land may object only to the valuation of that land or only to the valuation of improvements to that land. No person shall be allowed in any action or proceedings to question the amount or valuation of property unless the written objection has been filed and that person in good faith presented evidence to the board in support of the objections and made full disclosure before the board, under oath of all of that person’s property liable to assessment in the district and the value of that property. The requirement that objections be in writing may be waived by express action of the board.

5.       When appearing before the board of review, the objecting person shall specify in writing, the person’s estimate of the value of the land and of the improvements that are the subject of the person’s objection and specify the information that the person used to arrive at that estimate.

6.       No person may appear before the board of review, testify to the board by telephone, or object to a valuation if that valuation was made by the assessor or the objector using the income method of valuation, unless no later than 7 days before the first meeting of the board of review the person supplies the assessor all the information about income and expenses, as specified in the assessor’s manual under s. 73.03 (2a), Wis. stats., that the assessor requests. The Town of Milton has an ordinance for the confidentiality of information about income and expenses that is provided to the assessor under this paragraph, which provides exceptions for persons using information in the discharge of duties imposed by law or the duties of their officer or by order of a court. The information that is provided under this paragraph, unless a court determined that it is inaccurate, is not subject to the right of inspection and copying under s. 19.35 (1), Wis. stats.

7.       The board shall hear upon oath, by telephone, all ill or disabled persons who present to the board a letter from a physician, surgeon, or osteopath that confirms their illness or disability. No other persons may testify by telephone unless the Board, in its discretion, has determined to grant a property owner’s or their representative’s request to testify under oath by telephone or written statement.

8.       No person may appear before the board of review, testify to the board by telephone, or contest the amount of any assessment unless, at least 48 hours before the first meeting of the board, or at least 48 hours before the objection is heard if the objection is allowed under. S.7047(3)(a), Wis. Stats., that person provides to the clerk of the board of review notice as to whether the person will ask for the removal of a member of the board of review and, if so, which member, and provides a reasonable estimate of the length of time the hearing will take.

Town of Milton Awarded WASB 2020 Business Honor Roll Award

At its October 21st Board Meeting, the Cochrane-Fountain City School Board honored the Town of Milton with a Wisconsin Association of School Board’s 2020 Business Honor Roll Award. The honor roll program recognizes local school district business partners that support their local schools by providing resources or additional learning opportunities for students and staff. The school board provided the following information in support of its request to have the Town of Milton receive the award:
“The Town of Milton, through grants and a partnership with Cochrane Co-Op Telephone, has played an essential role in bringing broadband internet access not only to the C-FC schools but to the families within the township. Free public wi-fi is available in the parking lot of the Town of Milton Town Hall. The Wisconsin Routes to Recovery Grant provided federal funding to every Wisconsin town, village, city, county or recognized Indian tribe to use on COVID-related expenses. The Town of Milton Board voted to use their remaining funds to purchase disposable food distribution products (to-go containers, plasticware, etc.) for C-FC’s Food Service Program. This purchase should provide the supplies needed to package food for C-FC’s food service program for the entire year.”
Karen Knospe, School Board President (far left) and Dr. Jo-Ellen Fairbanks, C-FC Superintendent (far right) are shown presenting the award to Pam Jensen, Supervisor (2nd from left) and Ben Adank, Chairperson (3rd from left) at the school board meeting. Way to go, Town of Milton, on the award!
