1994 Assessment Installment Contracts

This measure appeared on the May 17, 1994 Primary Election Ballot
 
BALLOT TITLE
 
CAPTION: Amends Procedures to Collect Delinquent Assessment Installment Contracts
 
QUESTION: Shall Charter procedures to collect delinquent assessment installment contracts be amended?
 
SUMMARY: Charter establishes procedures for collecting delinquent assessment installment contracts. Existing procedures allow property owners to avoid payment for extended periods of time. Without Charter authority, the City is not able to collect delinquent assessments in a timely manner. Charter amendments clarify the procedures for collecting delinquent assessment installment contracts. Charter amendments provide authority to void delinquent contracts. Charter amendments do not change existing safeguards which allow hardship and special payment plans when property owners suffer a financial setback.
