Attention:  Board of Appeal and Equalization meeting

This required meeting was scheduled for Thursday, April 9th at 7pm here at City Hall. It is now cancelled due to COVID-19.

It will be held in an “open book” meeting style. This means that if any taxpayers have concerns about their property valuation, they will need to contact John Conway (507-457-6300) of the Winona County Assessor’s Office to meet with him one-on-one and discuss their concerns. They will contact Mr. Conway instead of meeting with the City Council.

Any questions please call City Hall, 523-2257.
