  1. Community Accountability Board (CAB) Member

CAB is made up of a voluntary group of local community representatives who meet with juvenile offenders who have been referred for Diversion.  The Board meets, when necessary, and determines the reasonable requirements which the community can expect of the offender as consequences for irresponsible behavior. These requirements may include community service hours, restitution, and counseling, among other things. 

The Board serves as a role model for responsibility.  The Board members become active participants in holding offenders accountable for delinquent activities in their community.  This process makes the offender aware of the direct relationship between crime and the victims of that crime (the community).

Urban Renewal District Tax Statements

This change does not impact how much property owners owe in taxes.
