The Assessor establishes uniform, fair values on all taxable property. Our goal is to ensure that the property tax burden is distributed fairly among all property owners. To accomplish this, we revalue all property at least once in every five year period and attempt to inspect each property once every ten years. Our office is also responsible for maintaining property ownership and all lot descriptions.

The City Assessor's Office completed a citywide revaluation of all residential property for 2019.  The 2019 assessments have been completed and are available online at  The 2019 Board of Review adjourned on Friday, October 18, 2019, at which time the 2019 values became final.  Please call us at 920-832-5850 if you wish to speak to an Assessor.

Wisconsin law requires that all assessments be based on fair market value. The Assessor does not create value but interprets what is happening in the marketplace. WI Statutes Sec. 70.32(1) explains how real estate is valued for assessment purposes. A change in an assessed value does not automatically mean a change in property taxes. Each taxing authority publishes a tax rate annually in December which also affects each tax bill. Helpful publications are available in our office or by clicking on Helpful Guides listed below.
