Geologic Hazard Abatement Districts (GHAD)

Background
A Geologic Hazard Abatement District (GHAD) is created to finance the prevention, mitigation, abatement or control of a geologic hazard. A geologic hazard is defined as an actual or threatened landslide, land subsidence, soil erosion, earthquake, fault movement, or any other natural or unnatural movement of land or earth. A GHAD may also be used to finance the mitigation or abatement of structural hazards that are partly or wholly caused by geologic hazards.

Covering the Costs
GHAD assessments occur annually and are collected on the property tax bill. In order to maximize transparency, the funds received for each district are maintained in an independent GHAD account. To view a budget of your GHAD, please see the Engineer's Reports below.

There are three GHADs within the City of Dublin. They are the Fallon Crossing GHAD, the Fallon Village GHAD, and the Schaefer Ranch GHAD.
