At the September 16th board meeting, LID 15 directors voted on a significantly reduced tax rate for residents. Beginning in the 2019 tax year, the tax rate will be 53 cents per $100 of assessed value, reduced from the previous year’s rate by 9 cents. The previous rate was 62 cents per $100 of assessed value.
As stewards of taxpayer funds, LID 15 directors are primarily responsible for overseeing storm drainage and flood protection for properties in the district. This includes operating and maintaining the levees, detention ponds, and pump stations, managing the wetlands, and maintaining regional parks.
