Assessment Process

The City Assessor has three major duties; to discover, list and estimate the value of all taxable property within the jurisdiction of the city. To insure that all property is treated uniformly, the Assessor’s procedures must conform to State laws dealing with property taxation. Furthermore, commonly accepted appraisal and accounting practices must be used.
