Levels of service of program operations within the CDD are directly related to the annual operating budget. Program services include:

  • Maintenance of CDD landscape areas
  • Ring Levee Maintenance
  • Roadway Maintenance
  • Street Lights
  • Stormwater drainage system including the stormwater evacuation system
  • Infrastructure administration of CDD owed improvements

During the fiscal year staff monitors the budget to maintain operational efficiency. During the annual budget process staff reviews what was budgeted against what was actually spent, and recommends increases and decreases in service levels. The Board of Supervisors, with input from the public, reviews staff's proposals and has the final decision for the budget constraints that will determine the levels of service. The budget process typically begins in the spring and concludes in the summer, after a public hearing to ensure resident participation. Staff actions are directly related to those restrictions placed within the annual operations and maintenance budget for each fiscal year.

  • Discretionary - Those services adopted by the Board and budgeted for and which can be reviewed for sufficiency, based on expectation of outcome of the services being provided and their cost effectiveness in the opinion of the Board.
