Annual property taxes are one of the largest revenue sources for the City, and are critical to providing programs and services in the community.
Property Tax Notices are usually mailed out last week of May.

Residential Utility Services are now billed on Property Tax Notices.
Residential billing for water, sewer utility and landfill services will be billed on the annual property tax notice. This will save our customers and staff the time and expense of paying and processing up to 10,000 transactions a year.
Non-residential customers are metered for water use and will still be billed on a bi-monthly basis.
