Vector Control Program Funding
Vector Control Program funding sources
Funding for the Vector Control Program is primarily is through two
sources: a service charge and a benefit assessment. Both are assessed
through property tax statements annually. The service charge has been
fixed since 1996. The benefit assessment was first levied during
fiscal year 2005-2006 when San Diego County property owners voted to
approve the Mosquito, Vector and Disease Control Assessment for
improved mosquito, vector and disease surveillance and control
services. It is reassessed annually and supported by a comprehensive
Engineer’s Report which is published each year and contains
programmatic information and vector data for the proposed benefit
The benefit assessment and service charge rates will remain unchanged for the fiscal year (2022/23). The benefit assessment rate for fiscal year is $8.37 per single-family equivalent and the service charge is $2.28-3.00 per parcel.
The County of San Diego, Department of Environmental Health and Quality (DEHQ) has been conducting stakeholder outreach virtual meetings to share program updates and to provide an opportunity to comment on the fiscal year 2022-2023 benefit assessment. Thank you to all who have participated and provided feedback.
