Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. We do not close for lunch. Please note that City Hall will be closed on Wednesday, July 4 for Independence Day. Also, our office will close at 2 pm on Monday, July 23, 2018 in advance of the tax sale.
In cases of inclement weather, please call ahead. If City Hall is open, we are expected to be open, but in extreme weather, please call ahead to be sure.
Paying at Banks during the collection period: Taxpayers may pay their property tax bills at certain Norwalk bank branch offices. You do not have to be a customer of the bank in order to pay there, and there is no charge for this service. View more information and a list of participating banks. This option provides convenience and flexibility - taxpayers who wish to have an in-person transaction may do so without the challenge of having to park at City Hall.
