The City of Red Lick was incorporated in August of 1997 in an effort to maintain local control over the issues that we face. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, we had 1008 residents. Our population is made up of families that have been here for several generations and also new families that have moved here because Red Lick fits their needs. We are a residential community with a great school that consistently performs with the highest of marks. We are serviced by an all-volunteer fire department that trains hard and has dedicated leadership and excellent response times. The Council has managed to keep the tax rate as one of the lowest in the County.
The City of Red Lick will hold a meeting at 6:30 pm on Sep 10, 2020 at City Hall to consider adopting a proposed tax rate for tax year 2020. The proposed tax rate will remain the same as tax year 2019, .1076%.
The next regular meeting of the Council will be held on Thursday Aug 13, 2020 at 6:30 in the Red Lick City Hall. All residents of Red Lick are invited to attend.

How did Red Lick get its name?
The red clay that is seen in much of the area is filled with salt. The deer would be seen licking the red clay for the salt content; therefore, we became known as Red Lick.
