Notice of 2023 CCUD Tax Rate Increase

This notice is to inform CCUD customers of an increase in the tax rate for 2023.

At the public CCUD Board meeting on October 12, 2023, the Board adopted a total 2023 tax rate of $0.335 per $100 assessed valuation. This is an increase from $0.295 per $100 assessed valuation in 2022.

Termination of Drought Contingency Stage II, Stage I Remains in Effect
