I suggest that you contact the city tax department immediately and ask if you can enter into a payment plan for the taxes. Beforehand, figure out what amount you can pay monthly towards the total tax bill and not jeopardize your ability to make the mortgage payment. Communication is imperative - the sooner you initiate contact with with tax authority, the more likely you will be able to reach a solution in time.
I wish you the very best.
