What do you spend the assessment you do collect on?

Assessments are used to fund activities within each benefit zone, such as the salaries of Park Operations staff, services such as landscape maintenance, restroom cleaning and tree service, and a small portion of administrative overhead.  In benefit zones that are adequately funding, projects such as replanting, sport court resurfacing and furniture replacement are also funded.  Well-funded zones also set funds aside for future asset replacement such as playgrounds and shade structures.
