A Sanitary District is a special district, which is established by the governing body of a locality upon the petition of 50 qualified voters in the proposed district, or if the proposed district contains fewer than 100 qualified voters, upon the petition of 50% of the qualified voters in the proposed district. These districts are established to raise additional funds for the maintenance of roads and other items determined by the Property Owners Association. The ordinance forming the district adopted by the Warren County Board of Supervisors indicates which lots are located in the district and how the funds are to be used. A proposed budget with associated tax rates is submitted to the 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.
