    WAUKESHA COUNTY RESIDENTS ASKED TO KEEP PROPANE CYLINDERS OUT OF RECYCLING CONTAINERS THIS MEMORIAL DAY

    As grilling season gets underway with Memorial Day and nice weather approaching, Waukesha County wants to reminder residents to recycle right by knowing the acceptable recyclables. We ask residents not to place propane cylinders, plastic bags, scrap metal and other potentially hazardous items in their curbside recycling container.

    “Residents should understand that improper disposal of dangerous and non-recyclable materials in the curbside recycling containers not only causes costly damage to the equipment, but also puts collection and recycling facility workers at serious risk,” said Rebecca Mattano, Recycling & Solid Waste Supervisor for Waukesha County. “Much of this work is done by hand, creating a hazardous situation for people who are providing service to us all.”

    Waukesha County residents are reminded of the following resources available:
    • The 8 Ways to Recycle Right
    • Acceptable curbside recycling information and guide available at http://www.waukeshacounty.gov/recycling/
    • The free Waukesha County Recycles mobile app that provides detailed information on what is recyclable curbside as well as what and how to recycle or safely dispose of other items in the community, where to take them, along with navigation to the selected location

    Waukesha County residents can find more information at www.waukeshacounty.gov/recycling, through the free Waukesha County Recycles mobile app available in the App Store and Google Play Store, by liking the Waukesha County Recycles Facebook page and following @WaukCoRecycles on Twitter or by calling 262-896-8300.

    Great Wisconsin Birdathon Fundraiser

    We are the Indigo Girls and Guys Fundraising Team!

    Collectively the Birdathon hopes to raise $75,000 for bird conservation in Wisconsin, and we hope you will help us reach our team goal of $10,000.

    To provide an incentive, Colby Construction has offered to match all donations up to $5,000!

    Our focus is on Chenequa. Why? Because the Village of Chenequa was an inaugural Bird City, one of the recipients of the Bird Protection Fund of the NRF. Between April 15 and June 15, we will spend all or part of a day finding as many bird species as possible in the Village. You can donate a set amount to our team, or pledge an amount per species that we see AND you can join us as we search for birds. Our bird count date will be set in May when the migration is in its peak and the weather is favorable. Stop back and check in for updates.

    Your donation supports the Bird Protection Fund and state-wide projects that protect the year-round migrating, breeding, and wintering needs of Wisconsin’s birds. All donations and pledges are tax-deductible.

    Thanks to Colby Construction and to you for supporting our team, and for helping our state’s birds!

    Our fundraising goal: $10,000

    $6,000 raised so far…$4,000 to go!

    Notice of the Board of Review and Open Book

    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
