Will Tax Money Generated in Our Community go to Fund Our Fire Department? 

Yes, each fire department will automatically receive the amount of fire tax generated within their specific boundaries. For Example, as shown in the tax allocation table above, the City of Sonora contains 2261 improved and unimproved parcels, which is estimated to generate $313,425 in fire special tax annually for, and specifically paid to the City Fire Department. Groveland Community Services District/Groveland Fire Department contains 4087 developed and undeveloped parcels, estimated to generate $552,525 annually to fund the Groveland Fire Department services. As previously stated, fire special tax money generated in one department/District area cannot be allocated by the Fire Authority or County Tax Collector to another department or to the county.
