§ 17.5-6. General authority.  

Latest version.
  • (a) The city commission is authorized to impose an annual street lighting assessment to fund all or any portion of the street lighting assessed cost upon benefited property at a rate of assessment based on the special benefit accruing to such property from the city's provision of street lighting services, facilities or programs. All street lighting assessments shall be imposed in conformity with the procedures set forth in this division.

    (b) The amount of the street lighting assessment imposed in a fiscal year against a parcel of assessed property shall be determined pursuant to an apportionment methodology based upon a classification of property designed to provide a fair and reasonable apportionment of the street lighting assessed cost among properties on a basis reasonably related to the special benefit provided by street lighting services, facilities or programs funded with assessment proceeds. Nothing contained in this section shall be construed to require the imposition of street lighting assessments against government property.
