Property Revaluation

The Village property tax bill you receive each year, is based on the total assessment of your property. The assessment is a value assigned by the Village Assessor, and is based on similar houses throughout the Village. When the overall values of properties fall out of compliance, the Wisconsin Department of Revenue require municipalities to perform a revaluation of all properties. A revaluation means that the Village Assessor will physically visit and revaluate all properties in the Village. The Village of Bonduel will be performing a complete revaluation of all properties in the Village. The last revaluation was done in 2011.

The Village of Bonduel has contracted with Assessor, Mr. David Schmidt, to update all assessment records in the Village. Beginning in August, Mr. Schmidt will start visiting properties to perform interior/exterior inspections. This revaluation process will take several months to complete with inspections continuing into 2021. The Assessor may also be taking pictures of your property from the street for Village property records. Mr. Schmidt will be reaching out to all property owners to schedule an appointment to do an inspection.

Thank You for your cooperation with the revaluation.

Lawn Clippings and Yard Waste

When mowing your lawn, make the first few passes with the lawnmower blowing the grass clippings into the lawn not the street. If there are grass clippings on the street or sidewalk, use a broom or leaf blower to blow them back into the lawn. Do not use a hose to wash them into the street or storm drains. Keeping your leaves and lawn clippings out of the streets and gutters will prevent clogging of the storm sewers. Clogged storm sewers floods the street causing short and long term effects to the villages infrastructure. Bonduel is under mandate by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to assist in improving water quality in lakes, streams and drainage ways into which the village storm sewers discharge. Cost for clean-up of a violation may be issued to the property owner if compliance is not met.

Homeowners Insurance Coverage for Fire Dept. Services

     Responding to a major structure fire entails significant costs - trucks, equipment, materials and firefighters' labor to name a few. After a fire, local fire departments send bills for their services to the homeowner to recoup these costs. MOST INSURANCE COMPANIES PROVIDE NO MORE THAN $500 OF COVERAGE FOR A FIRE DEPARTMENT BILL. Call your insurance agent to confirm whether or not your homeowner's policy provides coverage for a fire department bill and to learn what level of coverage is available. The additional premium to add this coverage to your policy is minimal & will reduce the strain on your finances and the anxiety to you & your family after suffering an unforeseen catastrophe.
