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, amounting to approximately $12,300,000 in Fiscal Year 2019-2020. The District’s expenditures for the fiscal year are expected to be approximately $14,500,000, most of which is for the contract with County Fire to provide staffing for the District-owned fire station at Foothill College, and for special projects such as pipeline water-flow improvements and hazardous fuel reduction.
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 2020-2021 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.
