Do I have to connect/pay a special tax if I own undeveloped property in the area?
No, not initially. Undeveloped properties which do not contain habitable dwellings or water-accessing structures are not included in the proposed water line development, nor would they be taxed for public water line construction. However, those developing properties in the future (within the designated water line expansion district) would pay up-front water connection costs and service charges at whatever rates exist at that time. Additionally, back-taxes for the water-line would be assessed up-front to cover the gap between the time the special tax district was initiated to the time of the new connection to catch-up to the regular 20 year taxation schedule.
