The Hennepin County Assessing staff will be in the field throughout portions of Orono for the next couple weeks.
They will be doing primarily exterior inspections of homes, but may ask permission to view the interior to make sure the data regarding the building characteristics is correct. You have the right to refuse them entry, but they will then have to base their valuation conclusions on an estimation of the interior building characteristics. Alternatively, you can call the Assessor’s Office located at the Orono City Hall, to make an appointment for them to return at a later date. The phone number to the Assessor’s Office in Orono it 952-249-4642.
They will be carrying Hennepin County ID and wearing Hennepin County safety vests.
