Areas with growing populations face the challenge of providing adequate ongoing public safety services to the members of their community. For this reason, Special Districts are formed by local agencies – with industry expert assistance from SCG associates – to provide sustainable ongoing services like Police and Fire. Communities who have implemented these Special Districts benefit from the services being provided and will be assigned Special Taxes which have been calculated to collect revenues and align with the City’s budgets.
It may be difficult for local agencies to analyze and assess the exact Special Tax required to provide such services in growing communities with restricted budgets, which is why SCG completes a thorough Fiscal Impact Analysis for each project to prevent collecting inadequate revenues, or creating a district that is not feasible or sustainable in the long run. SCG always reviews each City’s existing budgets in our Fiscal Impact Analysis Models to ensure that the necessary services are sustainable at a reasonable cost to community members who will reap the benefits.
