New homes in the city will automatically receive a tax abatement of $75,000 for the first two years, provided the homeowner allows the County Tax Assessor inside the home to review it.

Water is provided by private well or by Cass Rural Water (1-800-922-2798) depending on the location of the property in the city. Some older homes that have existing well service can be hooked up to Cass Rural Water but that expense to run the lines would be paid by the homeowner and interested parties should contact Cass Rural Water for details on lines and hook-up fees.
