Town Hall Meeting to Answer Assessment District Questions
Wondering about the ballot you got in the mail for an assessment district? Not sure what the district does?
There will be a Town Hall meeting to answer questions from the public regarding the ballots for the Mansionette, Pleasanton Park, Olivewood and Hansen Park assessment districts Wednesday, May 31 at 6 p.m. in the Sam Pipes Room at City Hall, 678 West 18th Street.
City staff will be on hand to answer questions that people may have regarding the ballots they received in the mail.
Energy and service costs for the districts have increased. Those four districts don't have enough funding to pay for the costs of landscaping, irrigation, pumps, and other maintenance.
Residents are being asked to increase how much they pay per year towards those fees. All money collected by the assessment district can only be spent within the district.
Depending on the district, maintenance can include litter pickup, plant pruning, tree replacement, fertilizing, landscape irrigation, mowing and edging and weed control.
It can also include pump and motor repair and parts replacement and other work as needed. Ballots are in prepaid envelopes and must be returned by June 19.
A public hearing will be held at the City Council meeting that night. People with questions about their assessment district can call Michael Miller at 385-6800.
