The public services that are financed by the CFD levy include, without limitation, police services, fire and ambulance and emergency response services, parks and open space maintenance, lighting and landscape maintenance, alley maintenance and repair, administrative fees of the City and reimbursement of costs related to the formation of CFD 2017-01 advanced by the City.
The levy provides resources that are needed to fund the services outlined above for residents of the CFD every fiscal year.
