    NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Board of Review for the Village of Chenequa, Waukesha County, shall hold its first meeting on the 6th day of June, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Village Board Room located at 31275 W Country Road K, Chenequa, Wisconsin. The Assessment Roll will be open and available for public review from the time of the mailing of the Notice of Assessments, April 10th through Board of Review. The Assessor for the Village of Chenequa will be present for Open Book by appointment on Wednesday, April 26th and Wednesday, May 3rd from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the Village Board Room. Instructional materials about assessment and Board of Review procedures under Wisconsin law will be available at that time.

    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 the person’s objection except at a session of the Board.

    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 notice or oral notice of an intent to file an objection, except that upon a showing of good cause and the submission of 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 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 requirement and failure to appear before the Board of Review during the first 2 hours of the first scheduled meeting.

    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 objections to the amount or valuation of property 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 may 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.

    When appearing before the Board of Review, the 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.

    No person may appear before the Board of Review, testify to the Board or 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 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 Village of Chenequa 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 determines 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.

    No person 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 under Sec. 70.47(3)(a) of Wis. Statutes, that 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, and provides a reasonable estimate of the length of time the hearing will take.

    Notice is hereby given this 6th day of April, 2017 by:
    Pamela Ann Little / Chenequa Clerk-Treasurer

    A Message from the WI Elections Commission - Photo Voter ID

    Wisconsin now requires an acceptable photo ID to vote. Most people already have the ID they need, such as a driver’s license, state ID card, passport, veteran’s ID, tribal ID or student ID. To find out if you have the right ID to vote, visit www.bringit.wi.gov or call 866-VOTE-WIS, where you can also learn about important exceptions to the law for some absentee voters. If you don’t have an acceptable photo ID, you’ll learn how to get a free state ID card for voting purposes from the Division of Motor Vehicles, even if you don’t have a copy of your birth certificate. Just remember to Bring It to the Ballot!
