The Marion County MSTU/Assessment department works with residential groups to procure services or resources in subdivision areas where property owners would like to see improvements.
MSTU/Assessment programs, paid for specifically by those who use the services, offer property owners options to achieve their goals of road paving, road maintenance, street lighting, community centers and more for their subdivisions that would not otherwise be available through general tax dollars.
Department programs include:
- MSTUs (municipal service taxing units; funded by ad valorem (value) taxes).
- MSBUs (municipal service benefit units; funded by non-ad valorem (value) taxes).
- Road improvements.
