The charge associated with CSA 1-M was voted on by the property owners in the Lake Don Pedro subdivision in the summer of 2007. The Lake Don Pedro subdivision straddles the Mariposa and Tuolumne County lines. Several years ago, Tuolumne County entered into an “Amador Plan” agreement with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CalFire). When such an agreement is in place, CalFire provides staffing at the facility year-round and responds to all fires and other emergencies within the area of service. Since the agreement covers portions of Tuolumne and Mariposa counties, the counties entered into an agreement whereby Mariposa County reimburses Tuolumne County for a portion of the cost. (Election held 7/24/2007.) (Note: The assessment provides funding for a general benefit.)
$125 per improved parcel and $25 per unimproved parcel.
All properties are subject to the assessment.
Vote in Support (%):
Mariposa County Service Area No. 3
CSA #3 provides funding for new fire engines to respond to structure fires and allows for capital improvements to fire stations. Currently, the county is involved in litigation regarding the assessment. The county also is in the process of developing a new engineer’s report and resubmitting the assessment vote to the affected property owners. (Election held 7/22/2008.) (Note: The assessment provides funding for a general benefit.)
$80 per parcel.
The costs have been divided equally among all parcels with structures valued at $10,000 or higher.
