Santa Clara Property Tax bill

Original post made by Kate, Duveneck/St. Francis, on Jan 19, 2008

Today as I was paying the second installment of the Santa Clara County property tax bill, I
noted the assessments, etc.

In addition to the 'usual', there are two for the Santa Clara Valley Water District.
1) SCVWD Clean Safe Creeks
2) SCvWD Flood Control. There is NO flood control on the San Francisquito Creek.

I'd like my money back!!

Good luck on getting a refund, Kate. While you're at it, perhaps you should look into getting a refund on the Storm Drain "fee" we're paying every month. This was sold to us as a way to fund a very specific list of "urgently" needed projects less than two years ago. Now they've decided they only have enough money for half of the projects we once "urgently" needed. Seems like a project touted with this much dishonesty (or incompetence) should be subject to a mandatory re-vote. Good luck on that too.

Could have seen that coming for across the room.

SCVWD is run by people who are fools who do nothing more than suck up taxpayers money.

Have you seen those full color junk mailers they send out talking about bricks in the toilet to save water.

What a waste of $$$$$

We should fire all these people.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
