Payments after January should be made out to the Waupaca or Outagamie County Treasurer and mailed to the County address on the tax bill. The City Clerk’s office cannot accept tax payments after January 31st of each year! The counties will not accept payment before January 31st.
In addition to property taxes, your tax bill may contain unpaid special assessments, special charges or delinquent water or sewer bills. Special assessments are charges for work done affecting your property for which you have to pay a share. This would be for pavement, curb & gutter, and sanitary laterals.
Special charges are services the City provided to your property – weed cutting, snow removal, demolition, garbage clean up, etc.
Water and sewer bills not paid to the New London Utility, become liens on your property, which the Utility has a right to collect on your property tax bill. If you have any questions on your property taxes, call the City Treasurer’s office at 982-8500 (option 2).
