Public Facility Fees Program
The County Public Facilities Fees (PFF) were first approved in late 1989, becoming operative in March 1990. During that time, agreements were reached with all nine unincorporated Cities for the collection of the County PFF within their jurisdictions as well as in the unincorporated portion of the county. This program was designed to ensure that the need for expanded County facilities directly attributable to increased population be paid for by those creating the need.
Overall administration and oversight of the PFF Program resides with the Public Facilities Fees Committee. The committee is comprised of department heads, and/or staff from the following departments:
- Chief Executive Office
- Building Department
- Public Works
- Planning & Community Development
- County Counsel
- Capital Projects
The PFF Committee meets monthly and has the responsibility of ensuring that all issues related to the PFF Program are managed in accordance with applicable rules and regulations. The committee was established to review policy matters related to the PFF Program in the event of appeals regarding fees, the administration of the PFF Program, and other issues that may arise as a result of the implementation of the PFF Program.
