Since all property owners complied , there will <br />be no County assessments charged to any of the owners’ property tax bills. The typical annual <br />process of holding public hearings for abatement and assessment of costs is not necessary and <br />t his concludes the 201 8 annual program for hazardous vegetation (brush) abatement. <br />
