The city has sent ballots to property owners asking whether they would be willing to continue to pay a special tax for public maintenance. Irvine has relied on a special assessment district since 1983 to pay for public services such as street sweeping and lighting, parking and landscaping. But with the passage of Proposition 218 last November, the city must get property owners' permission to continue to collect the money.
