What are pending assessments?
Pending assessments are estimated assessment amounts to be charged to properties BEFORE the assessments are levied by the City Council. Assessments become pending either:
a) When the City Council authorizes the construction of a public improvement that will be financed with assessments; or
b) When Real Estate/Assessments staff receive nuisance abatement charges or other unpaid city charges that may be collected by assessment.
Once public improvement projects are substantially completed, staff calculate final assessment charges and submit a final Assessment Roll to the City Council for approval. Once approved, the assessments are no longer pending, but become levied. Payments may be made on pending assessments. Pending assessments appear in the Assessment Lookup screen.
