§70.47(7)(aa) 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 enter onto property to conduct an exterior view of the real or personal property being assessed.

 

§70.47(7)(ac)  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.

 

§70.47(7)(ad) No person may appear before the board of review, testify to the board by telephone or contest the amount of any 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 sub. (3) (a), that person provides to the clerk of the board of review notice as to whether the person will ask for removal under sub. (6m) (a) and if so which member will be removed and the person's reasonable estimate of the length of time that the hearing will take.

 

§70.47(7)(ae)  When appearing before the board, 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.

The municipality or county shall provide by ordinance for the confidentiality of information about income and expenses that is provided to the assessor under this paragraph and shall provide exceptions for persons using the information in the discharge of duties imposed by law or of the duties of their office or by order of a court. The information that is provided under this paragraph is not subject to the right of inspection and copying under s. 19.35 (1) unless a court determines before the first meeting of the board of review that the information is inaccurate.

 

§70.47(8)  The board shall hear upon oath all persons who appear before it in relation to the assessment. Instead of appearing in person at the hearing, the board may allow the property owner, or the property owner's representative, at the request of either person, to appear before the board, under oath, by telephone or to submit written statements, under oath, to the board. The board shall hear upon oath, by telephone, all ill or disabled persons who present to the board a letter from a physician, osteopath, physician assistant, as defined in s. 448.01 (6), or advanced practice nurse prescriber certified under s. 441.16 (2) that confirms their illness or disability.

PROCLAMATION

 

Recognizing All Essential Workers

 

 WHEREAS, the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has led to a state of unprecedented economic disruption in the United States, the state of Wisconsin and in the City of Weyauwega; and

WHEREAS, employees in health care and every other individual who reported to work day in and day out to ensure our residents had access to all necessities throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic; and

WHEREAS, the widespread implement of stay-at-home measures and restrictions on many categories of businesses produced a surge in demand for many different services, with its effects felt at every link in the supply chain; and

WHEREAS, essential workers have kept the critical parts of our economy running during the fight against COVID-19; and

WHEREAS, while many were told to stay at home, these workers had a responsibility during the outbreak to continue operations, potentially putting their lives in danger; and

WHEREAS, many of these employees were at a risk of contracting the virus because their essential work means they cannot remain at home;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT PROCLAIMED that I, Jack Spierings, Mayor of the City of Weyauwega and the Weyauwega Common Council express our sincere appreciation and gratitude to the essential employees who worked tirelessly during this pandemic and proclaim April 7, 2021, as the day to “Recognize all Essential Workers”.

 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the City of Weyauwega to be affixed this 30th day of March, 2021.

Mayor Jack Spierings
