Assessments & Liens

Our Mission

We support City livability goals by helping to finance infrastructure improvements, and supporting the regulatory efforts of other city bureaus. We use Charter-granted authority to assess property for local improvements, system development charges, and code violations.
We maintain the docket of City Liens, which is a public record of all liens assessed by the City. We provide long-term, low-interest financing for improvement assessments, and collect current and delinquent revenues owed to the City.
