The City has three Community Facilities Districts, also known as Mello-Roos Districts, within its city limits. A Community Facilities District is an area where a special property tax, in addition to the normal property tax, is levied on property owners within a Community Facilities District. The districts finance certain public improvements and services through the sale of bonds. These services may include streets, water, sewage and drainage, electricity, infrastructure, schools, parks and police protection to newly developing areas. The taxes collected from the property owners are used to make the payments of principal and interest on the bonds.
The Local Agency Special Tax and Bond Accountability Act (SB 165) requires that a report be filed annually with the governing board of any agency levying special taxes for Community Facilities Districts. The report must be filed no later than December 31st of any given year. View the most recent reports: 2010 SB165 Report – Oceanside Community Facilities Districts (25.5 KB)
