Sales tax is the highest contribution to the city’s revenue. This is heavily influenced due to our very commercially dense location and smaller population. 


?Property tax is the second highest contribution to the city’s revenue. The city’s property tax rate was $0.1799 per $100 valuation for 2018. The tax rate has continued to decrease every year since 2010.
