At any given time, there are a number of special assessment public improvement projects in various stages of completion. Some benefit districts have recently formed, other public improvement projects are under construction, while other improvements are finished and the special assessments are ready to be assessed to the benefiting properties. Special assessments are only certified to Douglas County for placement on property tax bills once a year. All of this means that there are a number of pending special assessment projects in addition to finalized special assessment projects that should be reviewed. The attached list includes all pending special assessment public improvements as of May 2012.
This does not include assessments for City Code violations, such as weed mowing. This also does not include assessments by Douglas County (e.g. sanitary sewer trunk line improvements may be assessed by Douglas County for certain property within the City of Lawrence.)
For information on City special assessments, please contact the City Clerk's Office at (785) 832-3200. For information on County special assessments, please contact the County Treasurer's Office at (785) 832-5178.
