The committee uses the City's open appointment process. Application are reviewed by the City Assessor and appointments are approved by the City Council from the Ways and Means Committee.
Term of Appointment
Beginning in March, the City of Minneapolis Assessor's Office sends out valuation notices to inform property owners of the deputy assessor's estimated market value of each property.
