The Claims Division handles pre-litigation claims against the City, as well as the collection of funds owed to the City. Non-tax collection efforts are initially handled without the filing of a lawsuit; however, should a matter not be resolved in the pre-litigation stage, then the Claims Division files suit. The Division handles all collection matters for the City. In addition, the Division handles all pre-litigation claims against the City that exceed the sum of $2,500.00.
