Proposition 218 Election

Prop 218 Election Overview

The North Fork Kings GSA is moving forward with a Proposition 218 election. Through the Prop 218, the agency is proposing a land-based assessment of up to $18 per acre/year. If the election succeeds, the Board of Directors will set the rate annually and is planning on drawing some money from reserves to gradually increase the assessment over the next five years.

Funding local groundwater efforts

In 2023, North Fork Kings GSA received approval on its Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) from the CA Department of Water Resources, marking a significant milestone for the agency and its landowners by allowing the North Fork Kings GSA to locally carry out sustainability efforts.

The value of GSP approval cannot be overstated. It means the North Fork Kings GSA can continue to be a locally run agency, managed with direct stakeholder input. Although GSP approval was received, funding is required to implement GSP activities and programs essential to keep the North Fork Kings GSA’s good standing with the State. The North Fork Kings GSA is seeking this funding through a Proposition 218 election (Prop 218).

In the proposed budget, the Board plans to start with a rate of $6 per acre in fiscal year 2024-25, escalating each year until it reaches the $18 per acre maximum.
