Cities may also use special assessments to recover the cost of service charges including, but not limited to:
- Snow, ice and rubbish removal from sidewalks
- Weed elimination from streets and private property
- Removal or elimination of public health or safety hazards
- Trimming and care of trees and removal of unsound trees
- Unpaid sewer and water bills
