Each property owner pays an annual assessment levied on their property tax bills as non-ad valorem assessment. This amount is comprised of funds for:

  • Utility Operations: District provided utility services which include sewer, water and irrigation. The annual assessment amounts vary in relation to the usage, size and type of property.
  • District Operations: Non-utility operation and maintenance (O&M) of community properties. The amount is the same for all properties regardless of type or location.

Each year, the CID Board of Supervisors advertises for and holds a public hearing to set its budget and the level of assessments.
