Please call the office if you have not received your bill. Altered checks will not be accepted. If a change needs to be made, a new check will need to be issued. Please see the Memorandum from the Treasurer’s Office Any unpaid balance accumulated between August 1 through July 31 will be added to the property taxes for collection with a 6% penalty fee.  Automatic Withdrawal Program You will continue to receive statements in the mail to show the current status and balance of your account.
