Pending specials assessments are ESTIMATED assessments to property for improvement projects which are either under construction or have not been through the final approval processes and hearings. These special assessments are based on estimated costs for project completion and are subject to change. Once the project has been closed and the Special Assessment Committee as well as the City Commission have approved the final special assessments the amounts in the pending column will be removed and approved amounts will be moved to the certified and uncertified balance columns.
If you have additional questions concerning pending specials please call us at: 701-433-5304.
