The City of New Orleans has extended the deadline for paying 2014 property taxes to Friday, Feb. 7 due to the closure of City Hall as a result of the winter storm that shut down much of the region this week.
Property owners can make payments in several ways, including in-person, by mail and online:
Bureau of the Treasury City Hall, Room 1W40
The City will provide a drop-off lane at the Perdido St. entrance to City Hall on Friday, Jan. 31 and Friday, Feb. 7.
It seemed like a simple enough question: How much of a $25 million annual federal allocation did Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s administration spend last year to help struggling residents and address blight?
The precise figure is hard to decipher, city officials said. On the one hand, the city spent more than $25 million because of money rolled over from previous years. But it didn’t spend all of its 2011 money, citing project delays.
As they do annually, the feds are letting the money roll into this year, so the city hasn’t lost any funding.
