|Montgomery County requires all communities to pass separate legislation for assessments that are to be added to the tax duplicate. Before the City can assess property for such things as grass/weed charges, property maintenance abatement, unpaid water and sewer, etc., the City must pass legislation specifically identifying the property and the amount of the assessment. Details of each assessment can be found in Exhibit A, which is attached to this legislation. The assessments requested in this legislation are only for trash/litter, property maintenance abatement, and grass/weed charges. Assessments are based on collection for City services previously provided; therefore, City Staff are asking that this item be passed as emergency legislation.
