Town Chair Job Responsibilities

Background: The town chair is a member of the town board of supervisors.  He or she has an equal vote as the other board members and may make and second motions at town board meetings.  The town chair does not have veto power.  While the town chair has many of the same duties and responsibilities as the other board members, (see supervisors job description), the chair does have some unique powers and responsibilities.  These are listed in detail under s. 60.24, Wis. Stat.  The powers of the chair most frequently exercised are described in more detail below.

Chair Duties:

1. Preside over meetings of the town board and annual town meeting.

The town chair calls the town board meetings to order and runs the meetings.  The board may adopt a policy as to who will run the meeting if the chair is absent.  If there is no policy in place, the board members who are present will need to vote to assign that task at the start of the meeting, or the Town Chairman may designate a Town supervisor to act as chairperson in the absence.

2. Provide notice of town board meetings pursuant to s. 19.84, Wis. Stat.

The town chair is responsible for approving the final agenda for each board meeting and granting the clerk permission to provide proper notice of the meeting to the public.  The town board has the power to vote to add an item to a future agenda if the chair refuses to place the item on the agenda.

3. Preside at town elector meetings, if present, pursuant s. 60.13(1), Wis. Stat.

(The state law outlines the process for selecting a chair for the meeting if the town chair is absent.)

4. Sign documents such as ordinances, contracts, resolutions, etc.

When the town board votes to adopt an ordinance, issue a permit, enter a contract, etc., the town chairperson is required to sign the document on behalf of the town board.  The town clerk also typically signs the attestation portion of the document.  The remaining town board members may sign ordinances and resolutions as a sign of support, but those additional signatures are not required. 

5. Sign checks and transfer orders as required under s. 66.0607, Wis. Stat.

State law requires the town clerk, town treasurer, and town chair to sign all drafts, checks and transfer orders that disburse money from the town treasury.

Please be advised of the following requirements to appear before the board of review and procedural requirements if appearing before the board:

1.   No person will be allowed to appear before the board of review, to testify to the board by telephone, or to contest the amount of any assessment of real or personal property if the person has refused a reasonable written request by certified mail of the assessor to view the property.

2.   After the first meeting of the board of review and before the board’s final adjournment, no person who is scheduled to appear before the board of review may contact or provide information to a member of the board about the person’s objection, except at a session of the board.

3.   The board of review may not hear an objection to the amount or valuation of property unless, at least 48 hours before the board’s first scheduled meeting, the objector provides to the board’s clerk written or oral notice of an intent to file an objection, except that upon a showing of good cause and the submission of a written objection, the board shall waive that requirement during the first 2 hours of the board’s first scheduled meeting, and the board may waive that requirement up to the end of the 5th day of the session or up to the end of the final day of the session if the session is less than 5 days with proof of extraordinary circumstances for failure to meet the 48-hour notice requirement and failure to appear before the board of review during the first 2 hours of the first scheduled meeting.

4.   Objections to the amount or valuation of property shall first be made in writing and filed with the clerk of the board of review within the first 2 hours of the board’s first scheduled meeting, except that, upon evidence of extraordinary circumstances, the board may waive that requirement up to the end of the 5th day of the session or up to the end of the final day of the session if the session is less than 5 days. The board may require objections to the amount or valuation of property to be submitted on forms approved by the Department of Revenue, and the board shall require that any forms include stated valuations of the property in question. Persons who own land and improvements to that land may object to the aggregate valuation of that land and improvements to that land, but no person who owns land and improvements to that land may object only to the valuation of that land or only to the valuation of improvements to that land. No person may be allowed in any action or proceedings to question the amount or valuation of property unless the written objection has been filed and that person in good faith presented evidence to the board in support of the objections and made full disclosure before the board, under oath, of all of that person’s property liable to assessment in the district and the value of that property. The requirement that objections be in writing may be waived by express action of the board.

5.   When appearing before the board of review, the objecting person shall specify in writing the person’s estimate of the value of the land and of the improvements that are the subject of the person’s objection and specify the information that the person used to arrive at that estimate.

6.   No person may appear before the board of review, testify to the board by telephone, or object to a valuation if that valuation was made by the assessor or the objector using the income method of valuation, unless the person supplies the assessor with all the information about income and expenses, as specified in the assessor’s manual under s. 73.03 (2a), Wis. stats., that the assessor requests. The Town of Herman has an ordinance for the confidentiality of information about income and expenses that is provided to the assessor under this paragraph that provides exceptions for persons using information in the discharge of duties imposed by law or the duties of their officer or by order of a court.* The information that is provided under this paragraph, unless a court determined that it is inaccurate, is not subject to the right of inspection and copying under s. 19.35 (1), Wis. stats.

7.   The board shall hear upon oath, by telephone, all ill or disabled persons who present to the board a letter from a physician, surgeon, or osteopath that confirms their illness or disability. No other persons may testify by telephone unless the Board, in its discretion, has determined to grant a property owner’s or their representative’s request to testify under oath by telephone or written statement.   

8.   No person may appear before the board of review, testify to the board by telephone, or contest the amount of any assessment unless, at least 48 hours before the first meeting of the board, or at least 48 hours before the objection is heard if the objection is allowed under s.70.47 (3) (a), Wis. stats., that person provides to the clerk of the board of review notice as to whether the person will ask for the removal of a member of the board of review and, if so, which member, and provides a reasonable estimate of the length of time the hearing will take.

Notice is hereby given this 8nd day of May, 2019                             Alison Pecha
