CHAPTER 4.7 - Alternative Procedure for Authorizing Assessments
For purposes of proceeding under this chapter, the report prepared pursuant to Section 10204 shall contain the following elements instead of those specified in Section 10204:
(a) A general description of the proposed project. Detailed plans and specifications need not be included in the report.
(b) A general description of works or appliances already installed and any other property necessary or convenient for the operation of the improvement, if the work, appliance, or property is to be acquired as part of the improvement. Acquisitions are subject to the limitation specified in Section 10360.
(c) An estimate of the costs of the improvement and of the cost of lands, rights-of-way, easements, and incidental expenses in connection with the improvement. If the legislative body, in the resolution of intention, ordered that private utility damages be included in the assessment, the report shall contain an estimate of private utility damages. In addition to the estimate of the likely cost of the project, the report shall state a maximum cost of the project and any private utility damages. If the legislative body, in the resolution of intention, declared its intention to levy an assessment for the maintenance, repair, or improvement of the work, system, or facility, the report shall contain an estimate of the amount of this assessment for each of the first five years during which the assessment would be levied.
(d) A diagram showing the assessment district and the boundaries and dimensions of the subdivisions of land within the district as they existed at the time of the passage of the resolution of intent. Each subdivision, including each separate condominium interest as defined in Section 783 of the Civil Code, shall be given a separate number upon the diagram.
(e) A proposed assessment of a percentage share of the cost and expense of the proposed improvement upon each subdivision of real property in the district in proportion to the estimated benefits to be received by those subdivisions, respectively, from the improvement. The amount of the proposed assessment against each subdivision of real property, assuming the improvement costs and expenses are the amount estimated in subdivision (c) and assuming the project costs and expenses are the maximum amount stated in subdivision (c). When any portion or percentage of the cost and expenses of the improvement is ordered to be paid out of the treasury of the municipality, pursuant to Section 10201, the amount of that portion or percentage shall first be deducted from the total estimated costs and expenses of the improvement and from the maximum costs and expenses of the project, and the assessment upon property proposed in the report shall include only the remainder of the estimated costs and expenses. The assessment shall refer to the subdivisions by their respective numbers as assigned pursuant to subdivision (d).
