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 assessment.

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.
