The City utilizes special assessments as a tool to provide a stable and continuing source of funding within the financial capacity of the City, in combination with federal, state, county, and other local financial resources available to the City, to accommodate infrastructure needs for new development, redevelopment, and maintenance within the existing community in the most cost-effective manner.
Please note that a special assessment is a lien against the property for payment of an improvement to the property by the City (such as street reconstruction) or delinquent charges due to the City. Special Assessment information regarding a special assessment on a property, or the need to obtain information about the payoff amount can be provided by a Special Assessment Search. A search can be initiated by completing the Special Assessment Search Request Form.
