Dear Resident-

Each year when the city receives the final property assessment information from the Board of Equalization in St. Charles County, the city must calculate the intended tax levy for that year and make a posting of the assessed values within the city, the proposed levy for the current year, and hold a public hearing on the matter.  In order to meet the October 1st deadline for submitting the tax levy to the Collector of Revenue and the required timeframe for posting the notice, the city is holding this special meeting before the October deadline.  The agenda and packet for the Special Board of Alderman Meeting to be held on Tuesday September 26th, 2023 at 6:00p.m. at Dardenne Prairie City Hall can be found by clicking here.

The city personal and real property tax rate for 2022 was $.0969 on every $100 of assessed value of property in the city.  The city is proposing to reduce the rate to $.0847 on every $100 of assessed value in the city for the current 2023 fiscal year, for a reduction of nearly 13%.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 636.755.5303.

Have a great day!

James W. Knowles III
City Administrator
