CITYWIDE REVALUATION UNDERWAY
The City has contracted with Accurate Appraisal, LLC to conduct a full revaluation of property in the City. The purpose of the revaluation is to insure that properties are assessed on a fair and equitable basis. Our goal is to bring assessments to fair market value. The last complete physical revaluation of the City took place in 1997. Starting in 2015, Accurate began a 3-year process of doing physical inspections of approximately 25 percent of the residential, commercial and industrial properties. Properties will be chosen on a random basis. If you have questions regarding this process, please contact the City of Prairie du Chien at 608-326-6406 or email City Administrator Aaron Kramer. You can also contact Accurate Appraisal LLC at 1-800-770-3927 or via email.
