Impartial Analysis from El Dorado County Counsel
This measure, if approved by 2/3 of the voters voting on the measure, would authorize a special tax on parcels of real property in the Cameron Estates Community Services District to be used for the costs of providing road improvements, upgrades to the roads and to increase maintenance services within the Cameron Estates Community Services District.

This special tax would be in the amount of up to but not exceeding $350 per year per parcel of land located within the boundaries of Cameron Estates Community Services District. The special tax authorized by this measure would commence in fiscal year 2014/2015 and would replace an existing benefit assessment of $250 on each single residential parcel, each residential unit located on multiple-zoned residential parcel and each commercial occupancy located on commercial property within the Cameron Estates Community Services District.

The special tax will be applied uniformly regardless of the zoning designation or level of development and, will be listed as a separate item on the county property tax bill for each affected parcel of land, and will be collected in the same way as the general property tax. All laws applicable to the levy, collection, and enforcement of county property taxes, including the provisions for penalties and the procedures for sale of the property in case of delinquency, shall also apply to the special tax.

State law requires the proceeds from the special tax be applied only to the identified purposes, and that an annual report be made indicating the amount of funds collected and expended and the status of any project required or authorized to be funded by the proceeds. This measure requires an affirmative vote of 2/3 or more of all voters voting on the measure in order to pass. The measure was placed on the ballot by the Board of Directors of the Cameron Estates Community Services District.

A "YES" vote is a vote to authorize the special tax provided in the measure.

A "NO" vote is a vote against the special tax provided in the measure.
