City Council Expected to Dissolve Golden Hill Maintenance Assessment District
What will Golden Hill and South Park residents do with all their extra time, now that the fight over the Greater Golden Hill Maintenance Assessment District is over?
They will finally be able to answer that question on Tuesday when city councilmembers are expected to rescind the resolution that created their maintenance assessment district, delivering the final blow in what has been a long, hard battle.
The council hearing comes after years of community meetings that at times had the community divided. It comes after a five-year long court battle which resulted in a Superior Court Judge ruling in their favor, and after numerous, numerous...and numerous articles.
And while they won't have to invest any more time fighting the legality of the maintenance assessment district, they will undoubtedly have to devote quite a bit of time finding out just how and when the City plans to refund them for the five-years worth of assessments they paid.
