This receipt gives an estimate of what 2017 City property taxes are paying for. This receipt does not include your County or School District Share of your tax bill. Of your 2017 property taxes, approximately 45% goes to the City of Cambridge.
The receipt will be updated to the 2018 City property taxes once we receive the information from Isanti County. Please keep in mind that the 2018 receipt will not include the Street Lighting since that has been implemented into a monthly utility fee.
Utility Billing Payment Options
Customers may make their utility payments using a direct payment option from a bank account. This arrangement is known as an automatic clearinghouse (ACH) transacation. To enroll in the program, fill out the form below for direct bill program. You can cancel the program at anytime. Remember to keep paying your account as usual until your bill reads "Auto Bill Customer--Do Not Pay".
In addition, we accept VISA, Mastercard or Discover to charge your utility bill. Credit cards will be accepted in person at City Hall or via phone. Please note that utility bill payments made by credit card either on the website, over the phone, or in person, are subject to convenience charges.
