The operation of the District is primarily financed through the collection of a Garbage Collection and Disposal Service Fee imposed on each parcel of real property within the District, with a supplement of ad valorem property tax received as a special district.†
Projected fiscal year revenues from Service Fees assessed to properties located within the City is estimated at $848,000.
The Districtís reserve is currently projected to be approximately $5,000,000.† The District has requested, should the Commission elect to allocate a portion of these reserves to the City, such allocation should be proportional to a fraction of revenues generated by the Service Fee in the City compared to those in the District.† Additionally, the District has requested that consideration only be given to such an allocation if the City is willing to accept their proportional share of all potential liabilities that the District may be subject to prior to approval of the proposed detachment.
Subject to Board of Supervisors approval, the District may refund the current fiscal year Service Fee to those property owners who have utilized private dumpster service instead of the Districtís service for an entire fiscal year.† In addition, the District may be liable for a part of the environmental cleanup activities at the Cal Compact Landfill.
