The purpose of the formation of the SSA 66 in general is to provide special municipal services to the area including but not limited to maintenance of Stormwater Management Facilities and their appurtenances, and other common area improvements such as landscaping. Such actions are only as a back-up in the event that the Owners or Owners Association, as the case may be, dissolves or otherwise fails to maintain said improvements.
There will be considered at the public hearing a special tax to be levied only if necessary, against the real property included within the special service area. The tax will be levied only in the event the Owners or Owners Association, as the case may be, dissolves or otherwise fails to maintain said improvements.
The special tax levied shall not exceed a rate of fifty cents ($0.50) per $100 of assessed valuation, as equalized, of the real property included in the Special Service Area. The initial proposed levy shall be an annual rate of zero dollars ($0.00) per $100 of assessed valuation, as equalized, of the property in the Special Service Area.
At the hearing, all persons will be given an opportunity to be heard. The hearing may be adjourned by the City Council to another date without further notice other than a motion to be entered upon the minutes affixing the date and place of its adjournment.
If a petition signed by at least 51% of the electors (registered voters) residing within the proposed Special Service Area Number 66 and a petition by at least 51% of the owners of record of the land included within the boundaries of the proposed Special Service Area Number 66 are filed with the City Clerk no later than sixty (60) days following the final adjournment of the Public Hearing, which petitions object to the formation of the SSA, the levy or imposition of a tax or the provision of the special services to the area, no such district may be created or tax may be imposed.
