Governing Body
The governing body, which is established by law to administer the operation of county service areas is the Board of Supervisors. The original intent of the CSA law was to give an alternative method of providing governmental services by counties within unincorporated areas, many of which have had large population growth and commercial and industrial development since 1940. Government Code 25210.0

The Community Services Division annually levies and collects special charges in order to continue services and maintain improvements around the county. The CSAs' budgets are designed to accumulate for current and future operations  and maintenance, capital improvement projects, as well as to provide for sufficient funds to be carried over year to year to assure adequate cash flow during the period between July and December, in which assessments become available each January.
