NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
Notice is hereby given that on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. or as soon thereafter as the matter may be heard, in the Board of Supervisors Chambers, First Floor, Eric Rood Administrative Center, 950 Maidu Avenue, Nevada City, California, the Nevada County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing to consider adoption of a resolution annexing the Retherford Road area into the Darkhorse Permanent Road Division, and proposed annual special tax for ongoing road maintenance within the annexed area, in compliance with Proposition 218. The Board of Supervisors shall consider all objections and protests, if any, to the proposed special tax and will tabulate the vote on the proposed special tax. Any interested person shall be permitted to present written and/or oral testimony.
A majority protest will exist if, upon the conclusion of the hearing, assessment ballots submitted in opposition to the proposed special tax exceed assessment ballots submitted in favor of such proposed special tax. Only one ballot shall be counted for each parcel, even if there are co-owners. In addition to the ballots in favor of or in opposition to the proposed assessment, the Board of Supervisors will also consider any other protests to the proposed assessment at the public hearing.
If a simple majority protest exists, the Board of Supervisors will not annex the territory or impose the special tax. If at least two-thirds of ballots submitted approve the proposed special tax, the Board of Supervisors may adopt a resolution imposing and levying the special tax starting in Fiscal Year 2019/20, to be enrolled on the assessment roll, and billed and collected along with County property taxes. The special tax under consideration is in the amount of $298 per single-family residential parcel annually per fiscal year, continuing indefinitely for each fiscal year thereafter.
Any person wishing to offer testimony on this matter should appear at the public hearing or may submit written comments (an original and 8 copies) to the Clerk of the Board in advance of the meeting.
