AB 1666 CFD Reports

The City of Belmont utilizes Community Facilities Districts (CFD), which are commonly referred to as Mello-Roos Districts, to finance local public facilities and services. Property owners in a Belmont CFD are taxed annually for their share of the debt service on any bonds that the CFD has issued and/or to pay for the cost of City services.  Proceeds from the taxes are used to ensure that the community is properly maintained and public improvements are constructed.  

Per Government Code Sections 50075.3 (Report on Special Taxes) and 53411 (Report on Bonded Proceeds), the Annual Financial Reports for Community Facilities Districts for fiscal year 2018-19 are posted below.
