The Assessing/Building Inspection/Cemetery Department is responsible for enforcing zoning regulations, flood elevations, cemetery records and lot sales, building permits and inspections, assessment of real estate for property tax purposes, and gas piping permits. However, the Assessor is not responsible for any special assessments, special assessments are a function of the Office of the Auditor. The Assessing/Building Inspection/Cemetery Department is also responsible for requests before the Board of Adjustment and Board of Equalization.

Each property's share of the property tax is based on the Assessor's value. Although the work of the assessor does not determine the total amount of taxes paid, it does affect the uniform distribution of the property tax burden.

North Dakota law requires the assessor's office to value property according to its value on February 1st of each year. The State of North Dakota monitors the Assessor's valuations through a sales ratio system to determine if the city is keeping their property valuations at market value.

Property information such as parcel number, subdivision, lot and block number, owner, lot size, assessed value can be obtained in the office of the City Assessor.
