Williams Fire Protection Authority

Election Date:

The Williams Fire Protection Authority imposes a “special assessment” as governed by Proposition 218, at an annual rate of $59 per single-family equivalent benefit unit. The “assessment” shall fund obtaining, furnishing, operating, and maintaining fire suppression, protection and emergency services equipment and apparatus; payment of salaries, benefits and other compensation to fire fighting and fire prevention personnel; training and administration of paid personnel performing said fire suppression, protection and emergency services; community fire prevention education and fire inspection. The ballot question submitted to voters, in an all-mail election, read: “Yes, I approve the proposed assessment for fire suppression and protection services. No, I do not approve the proposed assessment for fire suppression and protection services.” The measure was approved with 65.12 percent voting yes. (7/17/2006) (Note: While the district has determined that this is a “special assessment” in compliance with Proposition 218, due to the nature of the assessment, it has been included in this list.)

Rate:

A special assessment of $59 per single-family equivalent benefit unit, which may be increased to adjust for inflation according to the Consumer Price Index of the San Francisco Bay Area. According to the district: “Only special benefits are assessable. The amount of each assessment shall be each identified parcel’s proportionate share of the cost of the additional fire suppression services based upon that parcel’s special benefit from the Service. The amount shall be proportional to and no greater than the special benefits conferred to the property.”
