MEMO TO:           Mayor Barber and Board of Commissioners

FROM:                  Frank A. Rush, Jr., Town Manager

SUBJECT:           Order Directing 2016 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 2016 ad valorem taxes. 

Town staff expects to finalize all tax bills and have them mailed to our property owners in early August.  For the first time, the Town will be using the services of a mailing service vendor for the 2016 tax bills, which will reduce the workload on Town Administration staff.  Because the mailing service vendor can secure reduced postage rates, the cost of the printing, sorting, and stuffing services plus the postage costs will actually be less than the Town’s postage cost in previous years. 

I recommend approval of the attached order.
