Determining Ownership of Lands

As a Second Class city Thorne Bay is not required to charge property taxes. However, because of this, we have little record as to who owns property within our municipal boundaries.

Please help us by contacting City Hall if you own land, so that we can continue to grow our land ownership database.

Contact the City Clerk or City Administrator at (907) 828-3380, or email administrator@thornebay-ak.gov.
