Property Tax Payments

The Tax Notices mailed to property owners have a printing error at the bottom of the page on the payment stubs. The colored headers for the First Payment and Full Payment were switched. The left-most stub should have been titled "FIRST HALF PAYMENT" and the right-most stub should have been "FULL PAYMENT". Otherwise, the payment stubs are correct.
