101325.
  

Whenever the governing body of any city or county determines that the expenses of the local health officer or other officers or employees in the enforcement of any statute, order, quarantine, or regulation prescribed by a state officer or department relating to public health, requires or authorizes its health officer or other officers or employees to perform specified acts that are not met by fees prescribed by the state, the governing body may adopt an ordinance or resolution prescribing fees to pay the reasonable expenses of the health officer or other officers or employees incurred in the enforcement, and may authorize a direct assessment against the real property in cases where the real property is owned by the operator of a business and the property is the subject of the enforcement. The schedule of fees prescribed by ordinance or resolution of the governing body shall be applicable in the area in which the local health officer or other officers or employees enforce any statute, order, quarantine, or regulation prescribed by a state officer or department relating to public health.

(Amended by Stats. 1996, Ch. 1023, Sec. 302.8. Effective September 29, 1996.)

101330.
  

On or before August of each year, the officer designated by the governing body to collect fees authorized by Section 101325, shall prepare a list of parcels of real property that are subject to these fees. On or before the tenth day of August of each year, the officer shall transmit the list to the county auditor and the auditor shall enter the amounts of the assessments against the respective parcels of land as they appear on the current assessment roll.

(Added by Stats. 1995, Ch. 415, Sec. 3. Effective January 1, 1996.)

101335.
  

The tax collector shall include the amounts of the assessments entered on the assessment roll pursuant to Section 101330 on bills for taxes levied against lots and parcels of land, and the assessments shall be listed separately on the tax bills. Thereafter, the assessment amounts shall be collected at the same time and in the same manner as county taxes are collected.

If a county collects the assessments on behalf of a city, the county may deduct its reasonable costs incurred for its collections services before remitting the balance to the city treasury.

(Added by Stats. 1995, Ch. 415, Sec. 3. Effective January 1, 1996.)

101340.
  

All laws applicable to the levy, collection, and enforcement of county taxes are applicable to special assessments made pursuant to this article and Article 4.

(Added by Stats. 1995, Ch. 415, Sec. 3. Effective January 1, 1996.)

101345.
  

In those instances where direct assessment is not authorized by Section 101325, if the officer charged with the billing and collection of the fees is a county officer, the officer may, with the approval of the governing body, record without fee, in the office of the county recorder, a certificate specifying the amount, interest, penalty due, and the name and last known address of the person liable for these fees. If the officer charged with the billing and collection of these fees is a city officer, the officer, with the approval of the governing body may, in those instances where direct assessment is not authorized by Section 101325, record with reasonable fee charge, in the office of the county recorder a certificate specifying the amount, interest, penalty due, name, and last known address of the person liable for these fees. From the time of recording of the certificate, the amount required to be paid together with interest and penalty constitutes a lien upon all real property in the county owned or later acquired by the liable person. The lien created by recording this certificate shall have the force, effect, and priority of a judgment lien and shall continue for 10 years from the time of the recording unless released or otherwise discharged prior to that time. Prior to recording the lien with the county recorder, the lienor shall notify the person liable for the fees by certified mail of the intent to record the certificate.

(Added by Stats. 1995, Ch. 415, Sec. 3. Effective January 1, 1996.)

Any board of supervisors may levy a special tax on all the property in the county, outside of any city pursuant to Article 3.5 (commencing with Section 50075) of Chapter 1 of Part 1 of Division 1 of Title 5 of the Government Code, and spend the proceeds to prevent the introduction of, and to eradicate, dangerous, infectious, or communicable diseases, and for general sanitation purposes.

(Amended by Stats. 2009, Ch. 332, Sec. 76. (SB 113) Effective January 1, 2010.)
