County Service Areas (CSA’s)

What are CSA’s?


San Benito County has been utilizing County Service Areas (CSA) for over 50 years to provide services to several communities.  The basic premise of a CSA is to fund the long term and maintenance of public infrastructure within specific communities that the County would not otherwise be able to fund through traditional sources (property tax, sales tax, fuel tax, etc.). The County Service Area Law (Government Code §25210.1 et seq.) was created in the 1950’s to provide a means of providing expanded services levels in areas where residents are willing to pay for the extra service, by creating a direct assessment that is used to fund cost of operations and maintenance of particular services. County staff administers 32 CSAs countywide.
