Our staff is currently working Monday through Friday our normal business hours. The appraisal staff continues to be working on 2020 permitted work and will also continue updating photos in the City of Albert Lea and township quintile areas for the 2021 assessment.  These areas are highlighted on the map below.  In an effort to continue social distancing and have minimal face to face contact with the public, we will NOT be knocking on doors or leaving door hangers.  Appraisers will be wearing identification badges and be in a Freeborn county vehicle.  Your patience is appreciated.
