In 2000, the City of Novato formed a special financing district for the construction of a sewer line in the Novato Heights development. From the start, Harris has provided assessment engineering services for the $2 million financing effort.
Harris has helped City officials with:
- Developing the annual Engineer’s Reports, not only for the Novato Heights District but five other special financing districts
- Preparing Assessment Balloting procedures under Proposition 218, including ballot tabulations
- Public outreach to inform property owners and residents of important changes to the districts and to provide and legally required notices
This work includes continuing disclosure reports, delinquency reporting, payoff calculations, reapportionments, submittal of assessments to the County Auditor-Controller, and other tasks related to the annual administration of the districts.
