Special Assessments

From time to time the city performs public improvements that affect the value of private property and assesses the property owner for part or all of the cost. Assessments may be paid in full within a specified time frame or may be paid in installments. Any unpaid portion becomes a lien on the property.

In general, the assessment project includes replacement of concrete curb and gutter and installation of concrete sidewalk within the assessment district. Typically, the affected properties pay 50% of the cost.
