Welcome to the Town of Riga's Web Site.

2022 REASSESSMENT

The Town of Riga was scheduled to do an assessment update for the 2021 assessment roll, but it was postponed due to COVID.  The Town of Riga will proceed with doing an assessment update for the 2022 assessment roll.  Our equalization rate has dropped drastically which not only increases the tax rate, but also reduces the dollar amount of exemptions that people qualify for.  Residents no longer receive the full benefit of the exemption.  Despite COVID, the sales are still coming in much higher than where assessments are.  There’s still a high demand for homes here and very low inventory.

TOWN HALL BUSINESS TRANSACTIONS

Business transactions at the Town Hall can still be completed through the mail, dropbox or by phone call. All receipts for transactions will be mailed out afterwards.

We hope that your journey on the informational highway is pleasant and value added experience. The information provided hopefully helps our citizens better participate in local government. As we strive to continue to improve our website, please feel free to share your idea’s for improvement.
If you have any questions or concerns, we would be happy to address them, either call the town office:
