The ordinance requires that a report be prepared each year for each maintenance district, setting forth the budget for the ensuing year, the formula for the annual assessment levy, and a description of each property, including the amount of assessment to be levied against each lot.
The original lease agreements between the Redevelopment Agency of the City of Santa Clara, Santa Clara Convention Hotel Limited Partnership (Hotel), and SCCC Associates II (Techmart) provided for the formation of the District.
