BACKGROUND INFO

Tehama County Sanitation District No. 1 Ordinance Nos. 15 and 1911 provide for the collection of annual sewer service fees and charges. Pursuant to Health and Safety Code Sections 5473 and 5473a, the District may elect to collect sewer service and other charges, including delinquent charges, on the tax roll, which shall constitute a lien against the real property.

 

The delinquent amounts which are the subject of this action are the result of the non-payment of regular sewer system fees and charges during the period from July 1, 2010 to present. Multiple attempts to contact the property owner(s), to resolve this delinquent service fee account, through regular mail, certified mail, and by telephone have failed.  The latest correspondence sent to the property owner included a warning of an impending lien filing against the property in an effort to collect the delinquent amount.  Having received no response from the property owner(s) to date, the District has elected to collect such delinquent amounts by adopting the process for collection of the delinquent amount as stated in Health and Safety Code Section 5473 and 5473a.

 

The Board’s role during the hearing is to receive the Report, hear and consider all objections or protests, if any, to said Report, and to determine whether to adopt, revise, change, reduce, or modify any charge or overrule any or all objections. The Board must make its determination upon each charge as described in said Report. If protest is made by the owners of a majority of separate parcels of property described in the report, then the report shall not be adopted and the charges shall not be collected on the tax roll.

 

If the Board concurs with the Report (and there is no majority protest), it should adopt the proposed Resolution adopting the Report and confirming each amount stated therein. This Resolution will further authorize the Clerk to file the Report in the manner described in Health and Safety Code Section 5473.4 and authorize said delinquent amounts to be specially assessed and collected at the same time and in the same manner as ordinary County taxes are collected.
