In addition to the base fee, property owners pay .0735 cents per square foot of property. For example, someone who owns a 2,500-square-foot home will pay $303.75 per year, or $75.94 per quarter. The Municipal Service Fee is due February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1 each year. The fee pays for fire and floodwall protection.
The Refuse Fee covers the cost of weekly garbage pickup. The fee is $20 per month, but it is billed quarterly. The fee is due March 15, June 15, September 15 and December 15 each year.
