STATE OF WISCONSIN, TOWN OF MORRISON, BROWN COUNTY
Notice of the Board of Review for the TOWN OF MORRISON
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Board of Review for the Town of Morrison, Brown
County, shall hold its first meeting on the 23rd day of May, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at
the Morrison Town Hall, 3792 Park Road, Greenleaf WI 54126.
Please be advised of the following requirements to appear before the Board of Review
and procedural requirements if appearing before the Board:
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 view such
property. 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 that person’s objection except at a
session of the Board.
No persons may appear before the Board of Review, testify to the Board by telephone
or contest the amount of the 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 because
the person has been granted a waiver of the 48-hour notice of an intent to file a written
objection by appearing before the Board during the first two hours of the meeting and showing
good cause for failure to meet the 48-hour notice requirement and files a written objection, that
the person provides to the Clerk of the Board of Review notice as to whether the person will ask
for removal of any Board members and, if so, which member will be removed and the person’s
reasonable estimate of the length of time that the hearing will take.
When appearing before the board, the person shall specify, in writing, the person’s
estimate of the value 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.
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 the person supplies to the Assessor all the information
about income and expenses, as specified in the Assessor’s manual under Sec. 73.03 (2a) of
Wis. Statutes, that the Assessor requests. The Town of Morrison 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 office 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 Sec. 19.35 (1) of Wis. Statutes.
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.
Respectfully submitted this 8th day of May, 2017
Colleen Magley, Town Clerk
