Ald. Coggs introduces file to discuss recent property assessments


By - Apr 24th, 2024 03:22 pm

Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs has introduced a communication file to allow the Common Council an open forum to discuss the city’s recent round of property assessments.

The communication file directs the Office of the Assessor to appear before a standing committee of the Council to answer questions and provide information on the assessments process it uses to determine the assessed value of real estate in the City of Milwaukee. The file will be heard at an upcoming committee meeting.

Citywide, property values increased 17.4% from 2023 to 2024 with assessed values increasing in all aldermanic districts by at least 14% for residential properties.

“The recent property assessments that have been sent to residents have raised a lot of questions and caused much frustration,” Alderwoman Coggs said. “While many of the contacts my office and others have received are complaints about the assessment increase and the amount of their bills, there are also a large number of people with questions about how their new assessment was calculated. I think it behooves us to have an open and transparent conversation to learn more as well as provide valuable information to the public.”

Property assessments can be appealed provided an appeal is filed by 4:45 p.m. on Monday, May 20. To learn more about the appeal process, please visit
