LID ASSESSMENT PAYMENT INFORMATION

No payment is due at this time. Upon approval of the ordinance confirming the assessment roll, notice will be published in the official newspaper of the City stating that assessments may be paid within 30 days from the date of first publication of the notice without penalty, interest or the payment of financing costs. Written notices will also be sent to each owner or reputed owner at the address shown on the tax rolls of the King County Treasurer regarding the option to prepay assessments.

After the 30-day prepayment period, any remaining principal balance of your assessment will be due in equal annual principal installments over an 18-year period and will be subject to interest on unpaid principal. The interest rate on unpaid assessments will be determined after the 30-day prepayment period, when the City issues bonds payable from the LID assessments. The interest rate on LID bonds will depend on the market conditions at the time the bonds are issued. Assessments may be prepaid without penalty at any time after the 30-day prepayment period, however interest will be required to be paid through the next upcoming installment due date.
