City Treasurer's Office

The City Treasurer's Office is responsible for the collection and deposit of funds due to the City, and the management and prudent investment of idle funds. Residents can pay water & sewer bills, start & stop water service, pay current property tax bills, pay delinquent personal property taxes, pay miscellaneous invoices due to the City, and obtain City tax certificate in order to record deeds & land contracts at the Treasurer's Office, located on the first floor of City Hall. In addition to visiting the Treasurer's Office window, we are happy to offer a variety of other payment options outlined below. If you need to make a past due payment, please see the information below. 

Property taxes for the entire year are split into two bills; one issued in the summer and one issued the winter.

Summer tax bills are mailed out by July 1 and are due by July 31.

Payment must be received no later than Tuesday, July 31, 2018, to avoid penalty and interest charges.  

Installment payments are allowed for the Summer tax bill. To participate in the six-installment plan a taxpayer should pay the amount of the 1st installment as shown on the front of the bill prior to July 31. Installment payers will receive a monthly statement each month from August to December with the installment due by the end of each month. If you pay each installment on time, there will be no interest or penalties charged to the tax bill.

Winter tax bills are mailed out by December 1 and are due by February 14 of the following year.
