Who sets and approves our per parcel fee?

There is one type of fee that can be levied in the permanent road division program, a special tax.

A special tax requires a 2/3 majority approval of the registered voters voting within the division boundaries. A special tax can be set at a maximum and levied each year at any amount up to the maximum; it can be established with an escalator; it can also be established with a "sunset clause". Any proposed increase exceeding the approved maximum amount would require a 2/3 majority approval in another election.
