Determining the Property Tax Levy

Determining the property tax levy is a multi-step process that incorporates several public meetings which allow for resident input. That process kicks off in the fall with the presentation to the City Council of a preliminary estimate of next year’s property tax levy. 

The property tax levy collected by the City helps fund 24/7 police, fire, and public works services, as well as planning, engineering, and much more.
