Article 4.1. Standby Charges For Public Health Emergencies of California Health And Safety Code >> Division 3. >> Chapter 8. >> Article 4.1.
The Legislature finds that unabated outbreaks of mosquitoes
pose a serious threat to the public health and safety. The
Legislature further finds that public agencies, including pest
abatement districts, must be prepared to abate extraordinary
outbreaks of mosquitoes. The Legislature further finds and declares
that to protect the public health and safety from unabated outbreaks
of mosquitoes, it is necessary to enact this article to provide pest
abatement districts with the ability to abate mosquitoes.
A pest abatement district may adopt an ordinance to fix an
emergency mosquito abatement standby charge pursuant to the
provisions of Article 5.1 (commencing with Section 2315) of Chapter
5, except to the extent that the provisions of that article conflict
with the provisions of this chapter, in which case the provisions of
this chapter shall be in addition to the provisions of that article.
