SHALL THE RINCON RANCHO COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT BE AUTHORIZED TO ESTABLISH AND LEVY A SPECIAL TAX OVERRIDE, ON ALL TAXABLE REAL PROPERTY WITHIN ITS BOUNDARIES FOR THE PURPOSE OF PROVIDING FUNDS FOR REPAIR AND RESURFACE OF THE ROADS MAINTAINED BY THE DISTRICT, WITH THIS SPECIAL TAX NOT TO EXCEED FIVE DOLLARS AND TWENTY CENTS ($5.20) PER ACRE, OR PORTION THEREOF, PLUS ONE HUNDRED FIFTY DOLLARS ($150) PER PARCEL OF LAND PER YEAR WITH A PROVISION FOR AN ANNUAL INCREASE NOT TO EXCEED THE ANNUAL ENGINEERING NEWS RECORD (ENR) FOR THE PRIOR YEAR?
Amount of Tax
The special tax may not exceed $5.20 per acre or portion thereof. In addition, the special tax also includes a charge of $150 per parcel. For example, one parcel consisting of ten acres would pay $202.00 (10 X $5.20 = $52 + $150 = $202), and one parcel consisting of one acre would pay $155.20 ($5.20 + $150 = $155.20).
The District has indicated the special tax may be increased annually in an amount not to exceed the annual Engineering News Record (ENR) for the prior year.
If two-thirds of the qualified electors voting on this measure vote for approval, the special tax will be imposed annually until repealed by the District or the voters.
Purpose and Use of Special Tax Revenue
This proposition requires that all special tax revenue be used for the purposes of repairing and resurfacing of the roads maintained by the District.
|Arguments For Proposition S||Arguments Against Proposition S|
|Your friends and neighbors on the Rincon Ranch Community Services District Board have placed
a proposition on the November Ballot to provide the necessary funds to improve the existing
roads that the district maintains. If passed, Proposition S will collect the required funds to continue to make the needed improvements to the 3.5 miles of roads the District maintains. The last
overlay of the roadways was funded from a similar special road assessment approved by the
voters in the district. If approved an overlay of the roadways the District maintains will begin in|
The only other revenue the district currently receives is a portion of the 1% general tax revenue, approximately $9,800 annually, which is barely enough for insurance, required audit fees, county tax collection and road maintenance charges. It is imperative that we protect our investment in our roads NOW. If we allow further deterioration it will cost thousands more in the future.
We urge you to vote YES ON PROPOSITION S. Let's protect our roads and property values.
