Conference Board

Conference Board

The Wright County Assessor is appointed by the Wright County Conference Board consisting of the members of the Wright County Board of Supervisors, the Mayors of all incorporated cities within Wright County and a member from each school board within the County. The Conference Board approves the assessor's budget and after a public hearing acts on adoption of same. The assessor is limited, by statute, depending upon the value of the jurisdiction, to a levy limitation for their budget.

Assessors are required, by statute, to pass a state examination and complete a Continuing Education Program consisting of 150 hours of formal classroom instruction with 90 hours tested and a passing grade of 70% attained. The latter requirement must be met in order for the assessor to be reappointed to the position every six years.
