Info for Condo Residents

Residential

Residential condo owners do not receive bills directly from the city. The assessment bill is sent to your condo complex’s homeowners’ association. As per the ordinance, the entire complex is billed at a maximum rate of $125 per residential unit with an annual adjustment for inflation. (It might be lower if the Base Assessment or other ceiling is lower).

For the 2022-2023 assessment year, after adjusting for inflation, condo associations are assessed approximately $152 per residential unit. Click here for more information on assessment ceilings and historical inflation data.

Note: It is at the discretion of the homeowner’s association to decide how the total assessment is apportioned to individual condo owners, please reach out to your condo board for more information.
