DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION:
Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) recommending the Board accept the attached special tax reports for County Service Area (CSA) No. 3 and CSA No. 7 for Fiscal Year 2016-17 as this action satisfies the requirements as set forth in California Government Code (GC) Section 50075, et seq.
