The Board of Appeal and Equalization for the City of Elk River will hold a virtual meeting on Monday, April 27, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. to address any valuation or classification of property disagreements residents have filed with the county assessor. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting closure of city facilities, public comments will not be taken during the virtual meeting, however if you disagree with the valuation or classification of your property the first step is to contact the county assessor to discuss your concerns at 763.765.4900. It is assumed the assessor has properly valued and classified a property and the burden of proof rests with the property owner who must present factual evidence to disprove the assessor’s value or classification. This factual evidence can be submitted to the Board of Appeal and Equalization via USPS to 13065 Orono Parkway, or via email to City Administrator, Cal Portner. Please be sure “Board of Appeal” is indicated in the email subject line.
This meeting will be available for viewing live (and 24 hours following the meeting) at ElkRiverMN.gov/WatchMeetings and on ErTV Spectrum channel 180.
