Due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases and in our continued effort to keep everyone safe, we are instituting some changes to our cash payment process.

 We will no longer re-count the cash payment onsite at City Hall. Please see the new cash payment instructions here.

Please be aware that if you arrive at your appointment unprepared, you will be asked to reschedule which will not extend the due date for your tax payment.  Late payments will be subject to a late fee.

This change in procedure will significantly reduce your appointment time and reduce any potential exposure for your staff and city staff.  Shorter appointments will also allow more available appointment times each month.
