TONY RASMUSON, ASSESSOR

  1. The County Board will need to set the time and date for the 2022 County Board of Equalization in accordance with Minnesota Statute 274.14 

The Board must either convene on a Saturday or convene on a weekday with appointment times available after 7:00 pm.  If the Board decides to require appointments as has been done in past years, the Valuation and Classification notices will need to clearly state that appointments are required.  In that case the Board will have the option to adjourn the meeting prior to 7:00 pm if walk in appeals are not allowed.  If walk in appeals are allowed the day of the meeting, the meeting may need to stay open until 7:00 pm.  

Our office would like to set a deadline for accepting appointments to appeal one week before the actual meeting to adequately review the property before the meeting takes place to give staff enough time to inspect the property and prepare for the appeal.

The Assessor’s Office recommendation would be to schedule the meeting for 4:00 pm Monday June 13th, with the possibility for a reconvene the following day. The deadline for property owners to make an appointment would then be set as Monday, June 6th.
