Fire Board To Talk Spe­cial As­sess­ments

The Oakdale Leader - - FRONT PAGE -

A spe­cial meet­ing of the Stanis­laus Con­sol­i­dated Fire Pro­tec­tion District Board of Di­rec­tors is sched­uled for Thurs­day, July 26 at 7 p.m.

The ses­sion will be hosted at the Sta­tion 26 Meet­ing Room at 3318 Topeka St., in River­bank.

Main item on the agenda for the spe­cial ses­sion is con­sid­er­ing adop­tion of a res­o­lu­tion to levy and collect charges within the Stanis­laus Con­sol­i­dated Fire Pro­tec­tion District Spe­cial Ben­e­fit As­sess­ment Rate for fis­cal year 2018-2019. The board is ex­pected to dis­cuss the as­sess­ment rate and po­ten­tial im­pli­ca­tions on the pre­lim­i­nary bud­get/ fi­nal bud­get for the District.

The board is re­quired to an­nu­ally re­view and set rates for the Spe­cial Ben­e­fit As­sess­ment pro­gram. The Spe­cial Ben­e­fit As­sess­ment started in fis­cal year 2005-2006 and “con­tin­ues to be the most prom­i­nent and se­cure rev­enue source for the District,” ac­cord­ing to of­fi­cials. It pro­vides the ma­jor­ity of the rev­enue needed by the District to pro­vide the “re­quired and ex­pected ser­vices” to the com­mu­ni­ties it serves.

The board is ex­pected to con­sider a 3 per­cent in­crease but it could also choose to bud­get for no in­crease in the as­sess­ment.
