Abatement of Public Nuisances

Please note: City Taxes are collected by the Craven County Tax Office located at 226 Pollock Street.  You can contact them at (252)636-6604. 

For information on City property tax payments and liens prior to July 1, 2013 contact the City of New Bern Accounting Division at (252) 639-2722.  

The City’s chief building inspector, or his designee, investigates nuisances reported to or discovered by the City.  After the investigation, a determination is made as to whether, in fact, a condition exists to constitute a public nuisance.  If it is determined a condition does exist, the appropriate parties are notified of the nuisance and given a time period within which the condition must be remedied.  If not remedied within that time period, the City may abate the condition and charge the non-complying party for costs related to the abatement.  These costs are collected by the Craven County Tax Department.
