Vernon property owners should be getting their tax notices in the mail this week.
City council approved a 5.05% tax hike back in January, which includes 2.9 percent to hire six more police officers.
Payments and Home Owner Grants, if eligible, must be received on or before July 3 to avoid a 10 percent penalty.
The City of Vernon offers a free, secure online service that allows property owners access to information about their City of Vernon tax and utility accounts 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
“Setting up a “MyCity” account is easy, all you need is your folio/account number and access code located on your bill,” says a City news release.
