To enable the District to carry out its fire protection mission, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors allocates it a share of the County property taxes, expected to be approximately $13,052,400 in Fiscal Year 2021-2022. Other sources of revenue include interest income estimated at $360,000, and miscellaneous income of $200. The District’s expenditures for the fiscal year are expected to be $13,007,808, most of which is for the contract with Santa Clara County Central Fire Protection District for fire protection and emergency medical services at the District-owned fire station at Foothill College, and for special integrated hazardous fuel reduction projects such as defensible space brush chipping, evacuation route hardening, and open-space fuel breaks.
During past years the District has accumulated a strong balance of funds by careful under spending, which has enabled it to undertake costly but essential fire prevention projects, improve operations, and enhance community awareness. The “Fiscal Year 2021-2022 Budget Narrative” linked below provides an overview and analysis of the District’s planned financial and operating activities.
The District’s finances are audited annually by an outside auditor, and are subject to audit at any time by the Audit Division of the Board of Supervisors. In common with other County special districts, our District annual budget is incorporated in the County annual budget.
