Open Book Appointments

Open Book


Open Book is your chance to meet with an assessor and explain why you think your property’s assessment is too low or too high. This is a more informal process, and many discrepancies are resolved this way. Due to Coronavirus health emergency, the 2020 dates for Open Book appointments have been changed, and all appointments will now be done via phone:

Monday, May 4, 2020:
Wednesday, May 27, 2020:
  • noon-3:00 pm
  • 4:00-7:00 pm
Tuesday, May 5, 2020:

Thursday, May 28, 2020:


  • 9:00 am-noon
  • 1:00-3:00 pm
Property owners need to schedule an appointment during one of the above time frames. Appointments can be scheduled online (select "Appointments," then "Monona") or by phone at 1-800-770-3927. This information is also included with your assessment letter.

If you are dissatisfied with the results you receive from Open Book, your next step is to attend the Board of Review.  The Board of Review is scheduled to meet from
6:00-8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 9, 2020 

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

in the Municipal Room at the Monona Library. Residents can pick up information on appearing at the Board of Review after their Open Book appointment, or they can schedule a time slot with the Clerk by calling City Hall at (608) 222-2525.
