Kings Beach Benefit Assessment District Approved

In a 4-0 vote on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 the Placer County Board of Supervisors approved the formation of a Benefit Assessment District in Kings Beach to fund the maintenance of the Kings Beach Commercial Core Improvement Project infrastructure improvements slated to begin construction in 2013. The tabulated ballots, which were weighed by their assessment dollar amount, indicated property owners within the proposed District supported the measure. In all, 123 ballots representing $78,083.74 of proposed assessments voted in favor, while 56 ballots representing $42,930.20 were against.The district will extend on both sides of Highway 28, from Highway 267 to Chipmunk Street. The total annual amount the District will collect from parcel owners is $166,000, which will mostly cover snow management along with trash removal; sidewalk cleaning; landscape maintenance; reserve funds for damage, repair or replacement of improvements; and administration fees. Impacted property owners will pay the new assessment once project improvements are completely installed.

Kings Beach is proud to be the first community in the Lake Tahoe basin to successfully form an assessment district.
