BACKGROUND: 

The Board annually adopts a resolution allowing delinquent District sewer service charges, past due inspection invoices, and unpaid connection fees to be collected by placing the delinquent fees and charges on the tax roll of Clark County in accordance with NRS 318.201 and 318.202.

In order to collect the delinquencies through the Clark County Treasurer, a written report of delinquencies must be filed with the Secretary of the Board of Trustees and a hearing must be scheduled. Each property owner who is delinquent will receive a notice of the hearing and has the right to protest the collection of these charges on the tax roll. Once delinquent accounts are placed on the tax roll, any subsequent Customer inquiries will be referred to District staff. A written report describing the properties and delinquent amounts was filed with the Board Secretary on May 03, 2022.

At this time, it is too early to determine the exact percentage of accounts that will be sent delinquency notification because the District usually receives a large volume of customer payments in the months of May and June. However, staff anticipates sending approximately the same amount of delinquent notifications as prior years because customer payments have been consistent from year to year.

This agenda item has been reviewed and approved by the District General Counsel.
