SSD strongly supports the following amendment on the November 6, 2012 ballot. If enacted, the measure would establish certain requirements prior to legislatively creating special (e.g. “security” or “crime”) districts. We ask that you review the proposed amendment and vote “Yes” at the polls.
S.B. 410 reads:
“Do you support an amendment to provide that no law shall be enacted relative to the creation of a special district — the primary purpose of which includes aiding in crime prevention and security by providing for an increased presence of law enforcement personnel in the district or otherwise promoting and encouraging security in the district — unless three separate notices of the proposed law are published at least thirty days prior to introduction of the bill, which notice shall explain (a) the substance of the proposed law; (b) whether the governing authority of the special district would be authorized to impose and collect a parcel fee within the district; (c) whether the parcel fee will be imposed or may be increased without an election; and (d) the maximum amount of such fee?”
