Special Assessments Board
Special assessments are different than property taxes. They are the method the city uses to pay for infrastructure improvements that benefit your property, such as water & sewer main replacement and street projects. The cost of these projects is divided among properties that benefit from them.
The authority and guidance for using special assessment as a method of financing is established in Chapter 40 of the North Dakota Century Code (sections 22-27).
Not all city projects are paid for in this way; some are funded through the city's general revenue fund or general obligation bonds.
