A Sanitary District is a special district, which is established by the Warren County Circuit Court at the request of the residents in the area to be included in the Sanitary District. These districts are established to raise additional funds for the maintenance of roads and other items determined by the Property Owners Association. The petition that is approved by the Circuit Court Judge indicates which lots are located in the district and how the funds are to be used. A proposed budget and tax rates are submitted to the Warren County Board of Supervisors and after a public hearing, the Board of Supervisors would need to adopt the budget and tax rate as proposed.
Please remember that Real Estate Taxes are not to be confused with Sanitary District Taxes. These are two separate bills with different tax rates and amounts due. Failure to pay Sanitary District Taxes will result in a tax lien against the property. Sanitary District bills are combined with your regular Real Estate bills to prevent confusion and save postage.
