Property Tax Collection

Tax bills will be mailed out by mid-December, at which time the Finance Department will be prepared to receipt payments.

DUE TO COVID-19: We are strongly suggesting City Residents use other alternative payment methods than in-person payments. The City has online payment options, mail and two drop boxes located in the front and back of City Hall that are open 24 hours a day. All tax payments will receive a payment receipt returned via mail; along with any refund if applicable.
