Our Mission

Mission Statement

“To safeguard the health and comfort of the citizens of San Mateo County through a planned program to monitor and reduce mosquitoes and other vectors.”

Overview

What is a Special District?

State law defines a special district as “any agency of the State for local performance of governmental or proprietary functions within limited boundaries” (Government Code 1627[d]). Basically, a special district is a separate local governmental agency formed to provide local services.

Inadequate tax bases and competing demands for existing tax dollars make it hard for cities and counties to provide all of the services their citizens desire. When residents or landowners want new or higher levels of existing services, they form special districts to pay for them.
