All interested parties will be given an opportunity to be heard regarding the formation of, and the boundaries of, proposed SSA 61 and may object to the formation of the area and the levy of taxes affecting the area. 

The purpose of the formation of the SSA 61 in general is to provide special municipal services to the area including payment of the difference between the tax increment generated from the Project described in that certain redevelopment agreement identified as the 1 North Washington Avenue Redevelopment Agreement, dated as of September 7, 2016, by and between the City of Batavia and 1 N. Washington, L.L.C. (hereinafter the “RDA”) and the bond payments when those payments are due for the bonds issued to defray the costs of the Public Improvements described in the RDA, including any shortfall created by payments due the school district as required by law, and the funding of any premiums necessary to maintain insurance or bonding of the Private Improvements as described in RDA if the developer or condominium association fails to maintain the insurance or bonding.   The Special Service Area is to act as a back-up in the event that these payments are not made.  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 special tax levied shall not exceed a rate of ten ($10.00) 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 61 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 61 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.
