What are special assessments?

Special assessments help pay for public improvements in a community, such as road paving and water mains. They are levied upon properties that will directly benefit from the improvements. Special assessments require approval from the homeowners in the area and the Board of County Commissioners.

How do I make a payment?

The Clerk & Comptroller’s office keeps records and processes payments for special assessments. To pay a special assessment, contact the Clerk’s Finance Department at (561) 355-3457.
