Milwaukee city officials will review on Thursday a resolution requiring the city assessor’s office to send out reassessment notices to all property owners each year, according to a city of Milwaukee news release.
According to the news release, the assessor’s office does not send out reassessment notices to property owners whose assessed value hasn’t changed from the previous year.
The resolution, authored by Alderman Jim Bohl and co-sponsored by Aldermen Jim Witkowiak and Bob Donovan, will be reviewed at the Judiciary and Legislation Committee meeting at 1:30 p.m. Thursday at City Hall.
The legislation that will be reviewed includes reassessment notices that disclose the current value, describe the appeal rights of the property owner, the appeal process and the deadline for filing an appeal, according to the release.
Last year, only 16,000 of the city’s 144,000 residential property owners received an assessment notice, according to the release.
