Local officials appraise and set the value of your property, set your tax rates and collect your taxes.
Council sets the municipal tax rates to generate the revenue needed to offset municipal service expenditures with the annual Property Tax Rate Bylaw, which is developed through the annual budget approval process. The budget is typically approved in January and includes municipal services such as education, fire and police protection, streets, sewers, senior citizen transportation, parks and recreation and many other local services. Property taxes are mailed in the spring of each year.
You can manage your payments online, including property taxes, by signing up for Citizen Self-Service (link).
