Got mine today.

I hope you read these comments because you would not answer the phone when I called today. The corrected notice certainly raised more questions than the first bill. I don’t know what to pay.

I received my corrected bill and my original mailing was correct, however my corrected invoice shows me with a previous balance. I do not owe a previous balance. I am current and only owe for the current year.

I am "new" property owner and would like to set up my own account. I selected Operator twice to leave a message, after listening to your notice that corrected invoices have been mailed. Need assistance, please.

How do we get questions answered? No one is answering your phones.
