Solicit Contributions

Did you know that:

There are many people who would like to give the City more of their money. Although the City makes it easy to pay taxes, it doesn't make it easy to contribute additional amounts.

The City can include a flier with tax bills explaining this and soliciting voluntary payments. Since many residents don't pay their own tax bills, there should be a coupon on the flier that could be returned along with a contribution. The tax bill itself could contain a line on the payment stub for a contribution, and a box could be added to the real estate tax payment page on the City web site for voluntary contributions.
