MEMO TO:        Mayor Barber and Board of Commissioners

FROM:             Laura Rotchford, Finance Director

SUBJECT:       Order Directing 2019 Tax Levy and Collections

The Board of Commissioners is asked to approve the attached order directing the Town’s Tax Collector to levy and collect 2019 ad valorem taxes. 

Town staff expects to finalize all tax bills and have them mailed to our property owners by mid-August.  Town staff anticipates receiving the property value data file from the Carteret County Tax office by July 31, and will begin working to analyze the data for any necessary updates.  This generally includes updates to the Town’s solid waste fees.  Following this process Town staff will submit our tax billing file to our printing and mail service contractor for final mailing.


I recommend approval of the attached order.
