Property Taxes

Each year City Council goes through a lengthy process of finalizing the budget for the next year. Once completed the Financial Report is presented to the public at a Council Meeting – usually in early April. This is when the mill rates for the next year are announced.  The mill rates combined with the assessment value of your property are used in determining the amount of tax you will owe.  The current year mill rate and budget figures are listed below.  Visit the Questions & Answers page for more information.
