agreed upon with the property owner

without owners permission
• Notice – if the property owner or occupant is not present, the assessor must
leave a notice on the principal building providing the owner information on how
to contact them.

The ability to enter land is subject to several qualifications and limitations, as
described within the foregoing statutes. Copies of the applicable statutes can be
obtained at public websites throughout the State of Wisconsin, and from the
Wisconsin State Legislature website or a copy may be obtained from the
municipal clerk upon payment of applicable copying charges.
