Property Valuation Meeting May 4
If you believe the market value listed for your property is higher than its actual market value you should contact the assessor at 612.348.3046. If you cannot or would rather attend the informal, open book meeting, it is at city hall, Monday, May 4, 5-7 pm. At these meetings, the assessor reviews the information on your property for accuracy and answers questions about your assessment. The valuation reflects a property's value on January 1, 2015, and is used for property taxes payable in 2016. Complete information is available on property values on the Hennepin County web site.

Reporting Pot Holes
City water mains are flushed semi-annually in the spring and the fall. Flushing is done to remove mineral deposits that have accumulated in the water pipes. Households may experience rusty water, discoloration or other problems during flushing. City crews take precautions to limit problems. However, if you do experience rusty water, running the cold-water tap will clean out your system. Call the Utility Division at 952.960.7900 if you have a problem related to flushing that does not clear up within 48 hours.
