In 1996, the California legislature passed the Voter Approval Required Before Local Tax Increases or Proposition 218. The proposition requires all local governments to refer any property-related fees for voter consideration. The City will host a community forum to educate the community further about the process and the City’s specific proposal as well as a formal public hearing to solicit public comment from the community. If a majority of residents submit formal protests regarding the refuse rate change proposal, it will not pass.
