When more than one smoke alarm is required, the devices shall be interconnected in such a manner that the actuation of one alarm will activate all of the alarms in the individual dwelling unit.
Smoke alarms shall receive their primary power from the building wiring and include a battery backup. For alterations, interconnection and hard-wiring of smoke alarms will be required only if the alterations include electrical work in the area requiring a smoke alarm; in all other cases, battery powered smoke alarms will be acceptable.

Property taxes on real estate paid after the due dates accrue interest at the rate of 12% per annum until the date of the tax lien auction. Delinquencies are normally advertised during the month of October and the tax lien sale is held in early November. It is beneficial to pay the tax by the end of September in order to avoid charges which result from the advertising of delinquent tax accounts and before the tax lien sale as described above. If the tax cannot be paid, there is a three year redemption period during which time you can pay the delinquency plus accrued interest and fees. Keep in mind that the next year's taxes will be due the first of the year. The onus is on the taxpayer to take every effort to keep from becoming delinquent on the payment of their property taxes, as a result of continued delinquency could ultimately be the loss of ownership of the property. If you have more questions, please contact the Citizen Assistance Center at 303.438.6390.
Property taxes are calculated by multiplying the assessed value of the property by the mill levy for the taxing area. The assessed value is a percentage of the actual value of your property. (For more information concerning valuation for taxation, refer to the Assessor's page.) The mill levy for the taxing area is the combination of the separate mill levies for each taxing authority within whose established boundaries your property lies.
Mill Levy Total.......... x 0.099512 (usually expressed as 99.512)
Total Property Tax...... $3,139.60
The mill levy is the tax rate used to calculate the tax bills of individual properties within a tax area or district. Each taxing authority determines how much revenue they require from property taxes and divides that by the total assessed value of the properties within their established boundaries, as supplied by the assessor. The resulting tax rate is multiplied by 1,000 to come up with the mill levy.
Property Tax Revenue Needed..........$2,500,000.00
/ Total Assessed Value.................... $31,350,000.00
= Tax Rate........................................ 0.079745
x 1,000............................................. 1,000
= Total Mill Levy................................ 79.745
Taxing authorities, including schools and fire protection districts, levy property taxes in an amount necessary to meet their budgetary needs for the following year. If you want to have a voice in the amount of taxes you will be asked to pay, you may want to attend public budget hearings and get involved in the process.
Property taxes are not paid for services rendered in a prior year. While property taxes are indeed paid on a prior year's valuation, the purpose of property taxes is to fund the following year's operations. Thus, property taxes for the tax year 2017 are to fund the budgets of the cities, counties, school districts, etc. for the year 2018.
For example, a "stealthy" toilet leak could be caused by a defective flapper valve. To determine if this is the case, place a few drops of food coloring or a dye tablet in the tank, and then wait about 10-15 minutes. If the color seeps into the bowl, the flapper valve is not sealing properly and should be repaired.
If your irrigation system is leaking, you may notice the sprinklers malfunctioning, or your lawn may seem especially saturated, water-logged, or "squishy" in some areas. You will need to replace any broken parts or hire a qualified plumber/landscaper to inspect the system.
For additional resources, please refer to this guide to detecting leaks.
