The Village of Hortonville proposes to annex territory from the Towns of Greenville and Ellington. The Town of Greenville opposes the annexation to protect the Town's tax base and borders. Annexation will negatively impact the Town! Annexation from the Town will erode tax base, ultimately forcing the Town to raise taxes to maintain a consistent level of service, and by preventing long-range planning and development that are of local and regional significance.

The Town of Greenville has a new Assessor for 2018. Accurate Appraisal, LLC of Menasha will be the Town’s new Assessor, replacing long-time Assessor Keystone Appraisal. In addition to the changes in Assessor, the Town must perform a full market valuation of the Town in accordance to Wisconsin State Statutes. The last complete market valuation was performed in 2006. The Town’s assessment ration for 2017 was 85.98%. This ratio is out of compliance with State Statutes, thus requiring a full market valuation to be performed. Market conditions have substantially changed since the great recession and property values are reflecting the changing economic conditions.
