Special assessments are used to finance improvements to be paid for by property within a specified benefit district. These improvements may consist of water, sewer, street and sidewalk improvements. Special assessments may also be placed on property due to an abatement of nuisances or sidewalk repairs.
Questions on special assessments for improvements can be answered by the City Accountant at (785) 309-5736.
If you would like to pay for a special assessment for a cost of nuisance abatement, you may do so by calling the main Finance Department phone number.
To dispute a nuisance abatement, or for questions on the work carried out, please contact Community and Development Services.
