Prepare for severe weather season

Severe Weather Awareness Week is April 9-13. Prepare for severe weather season by reviewing important safety and awareness tips this week.

Statewide Tornado Drill Day is Thursday, April 12

NOAA alert radios, outdoor warning sirens and other alerting devices will sound at 1:45 and 6:45 p.m. to allow businesses, schools and families chances to practice their severe weather sheltering plans.

Hear a Siren? Get inside. Get information.

Review your property valuation notice

Annual property valuation notices and tax statements were mailed to property owners in mid-March. Please review your valuation notices carefully. The taxable market value will be used to determine property taxes payable in 2019.

The time to question or appeal your market value is now. Please contact the Assessor's Office at 651-266-2131 to discuss your concerns. Many issues can be resolved over the phone.
