Tax Installment Due

The second Real Estate Tax installment is due April 30.  Because this is a Saturday and City Hall is closed, tax payments will be considered timely if made on Monday, May 2. For your convenience, payments may also be left in the 24-hour depository box located on the wall next to the main entrance of City Hall.
