What if I can't afford the assessment?

The City has a deferral program for property owners who fall within certain income guidelines. If you qualify, the assessment will be deferred and you will not have to pay the specials. The assessment will stay with the property; however, and will have to be paid by the next owner. Application for deferral is not made until the project is constructed and statements are mailed out.
