City of Columbia property tax bills are currently due. City Recorder Betty Modrall reminds all property owners that city property tax payments are due by December 15th. Please pay on-time to avoid penalties and interest being applied to your bill.
The City of Columbia participates in the State Property Tax Relief Program. This program provides relief to property owners meeting certain qualifications on a portion of their property taxes if they meet the eligibility requirements. A senior homeowner may also be eligible for property tax relief from the City of Columbia. Please see the City Recorder's webpage for more information or call (931) 560-1520.
Public Infrastructure Improvement Program
With the 2013-2014 budget, Columbia City Council Members approved $1.8 million in infrastructure projects. The projects, ranging from sidewalk replacement to major drainage system repairs, will be completed over the next three years. The program includes projects in each of the city’s five wards.
Columbia residents can follow these projects in two ways. First, residents are invited to periodically check the city website for news and photos of recent projects. Second, residents should look for the orange and red Columbia “Works” logo posted on signs at work sites; these signs will be posted only when the improvements are being done as a part of the Columbia Works program.
The City of Columbia (Population: 34,681, Source: 2010 Census) is located approximately 45 miles south of Nashville in the heart of Maury County. Our city offers something for everyone, whether your interest is historical homes, sports, antiques, shopping, or mules. Did someone say mules?
That's right! A week in April is devoted entirely to the four-legged animal that played such an instrumental role in the settlement of our community. The annual Mule Day Parade attracts over one hundred thousand spectators from throughout the United States and abroad.
Columbia is also the ancestral home of the eleventh president of the United States, James K. Polk. The Polk home is located just two blocks from the center of town.
We hope you find our website helpful. If you need more information, please call (931) 560-1500, choose an option from the list of departments and services, and our friendly staff will be happy to speak with you.
