All offices will be closed for business on Friday, June 16th.  Portions of our building flooded during this week’s storms and there was both interior and exterior damage to the facility. All water and sanitary services to the Municipal Building and Harrison Athletic Association Ballpark will be shut off while crews work to repair the well and holding tanks. The south and west parking lots will also be closed during this time.
We apologize for any inconvenience. We will resume regular office hours on Monday, June 19th at 7:30am.
The Wisconsin Elections Commission has mailed postcards to approximately 380,000 registered voters in the state who  have not voted in the past four years. This mailing is in accordance with election laws that require inactive voters to be removed from the state’s voter list- it is not a scam. If you receive the postcard and have any questions, please contact Jennifer Weyenberg, Village and Town Clerk, at 989-1062 or jweyenberg@harrison-wi.org.

STOLEN SIGNS | 6/6/2017
We recently had a large Village Population sign, Street Sign and Stop Sign stolen near State Park & KK.  Please watch for and report any suspicious acitivty to the Calumet County Sheriff Dept at 920-849-2335.
Q: I received an amended tax bill from Calumet County.  Is this a scam?
A: It is not a scam. The Village Board authorized the County Treasurer’s office to issue amended tax bills due to a clerical error in the computation of the final tax roll. The additional amount due is listed in the bottom right corner of the bill and is due by July 31st. Please mail payments to 206 Court St., Chilton WI 53014.
 
Q: Did everyone in the village receive an amended bill?
A: Yes, each parcel owner that received a tax bill in December 2016 has been issued an amended bill.
 
Q: How did this happen and whose fault is this?
A: The error is specific to the calculation of the TID value increment. The apportioned levies that were used for Calumet County, Village of Harrison, Kimberly School District, and Fox Valley Technical College did not include the adjusted TID value increment. There is no single person at fault in the error; it was a misunderstanding of how the TID information reported to the WI Dept. of Revenue is shared with all of the jurisdictions.
 
Q: Why wasn’t I notified of this?
A: The error on the tax roll was discussed at the January 13th, February 28th, and March 28th village board meetings. The Times-Villager newspaper also reported on the error and the amended tax bills. The village’s website at www.harrison-wi.org has had information regarding the amended taxes posted since mid-January.
 
Q: Was it really necessary to send out amended bills? The amount due on my  bill is relatively small.
A:  In total, the error resulted in a shortfall of $265,337.22 that was part of the approved budget.
 
Conceptual Plans for the Manitowoc Road park site. 
Ayres Associates, consultants for the park master plan, held a public meeting at the end of April to solicit public input on the development of the future park along Manitowoc Road, between County N and Coop Road.  The three conceptual plans are a result of the public charrette, which was a group exercise where residents drew on maps the preferred location of ball fields, pavilions, and other park improvements.  Please view the conceptual plans and make comments at the following website: http://www.saa-madison.com/community-comment/harrison-manitowoc-road-park-master-plan.

(FROM MARCH 28 2017)
News from the March 28, 2017 Board Meeting:

The Village of Harrison Board formally approved a Contract for Services with Calumet County to reissue corrected property tax bills to Village of Harrison residents to include an amount of $265,337.22 on the tax roll not originally billed. Under the terms of the agreement, the County shall calculate the Village residents’ additional taxes based on the TIF documentation and print bills for each taxpayer, which will include the original amount billed, the new amount billed, and the difference between the two amounts.

 

The deadline for payment will be July 31, 2017. Printing and mailing of the tax bills will be done by the Calumet County Treasurer. We do not have specific dates or the amounts owed as of today. We will continue to update our website as more information becomes available.

 

UPDATE (MAY 22 2017) ADJUSTED TAX BILLS HAVE BEEN MAILED
(FROM JANUARY 19 2017) 2016 Tax Bills to be Re-Issued

The Village of Harrison, in conjunction with the Calumet County Treasurer’s Office, will re-issue the 2016 Tax Bills due to a clerical error in the computation of the tax roll. Levy amounts related to the TID were not accurately reported and they must be corrected.
Residents in the Appleton, Kaukauna, Hilbert, and Stockbridge School Districts will see a $0.19 increase per thousand of your assessed value (a $38.00 increase on a $200,000 home).
Residents in the Kimberly School District will see a $0.43 increase per thousand of your assessed value (an $86.00 increase on a $200,000 home).
At this time, we do not know when the revised bills will be mailed out. The County Treasurer is working with the database programmers and we should have an answer soon.
We are extremely sorry for any inconvenience this error has caused and we are working closely with the County and State to ensure this does not happen in the future.
 
Accurate Appraisal, the Village of Harrison’s contracted assessor, will be performing maintenance field work for the Village beginning the Week of May 1st  and through the week of May 8th.  The fieldwork will take approximately two weeks.   Accurate will be physically viewing any property that has changed from the previous year.  This includes all new construction, property splits, and properties that have been issued a building permit.  The goal is to keep properties updated and value them on a fair and equitable basis.
