County of Alameda, CA - Government "The Bright Side of the Bay!"
(29)

Alameda County was established in 1853. The County was created from the territory of two counties created in 1850: Contra Costa and Santa Clara. It was given the local name for the region, Alameda, which translated loosely as “a grove of poplars.” The County enjoys a varied geography ranging from urban marinas to rolling open spaces to hillside lakes and streams. Alameda is the seventh most populous county in California, and has 14 incorporated cities and several unincorporated communities. The total population is estimated to be 1,510,271 as of April 2010, a 4.6% increase from April 2000. During the same time period, California’s population rose 10%. Oakland is the seat of County government and the largest city.

Mission: To enrich the lives of Alameda County residents through visionary policies and accessible, responsive, and effective services.

Alameda County Community Food Bank and UnitedAg Member Farms Team Up to Feed Those Most in Need

In one of the first agreements of its kind between a county food bank and California producers, two farms will begin providing, at a reasonable rate, produce to the Alameda County Community Food Bank, allowing it to provide additional much-needed fresh fruit and vegetables to a growing number of residents in need of assistance. This innovative pilot program assists the food banks while keeping the agricultural supply chain together which is critical to the future of food supply.

Henry C Levy, our Alameda County Treasurer‐Tax Collector (ALCO TTC), has released a policy for taxpayers impacted by the COVID‐19 Shelter‐In‐Place Orders and were unable to timely pay their second installment of property taxes by the April 10th deadline.

The policy and instructions, as well as the application form, are now on the TTC website at https://treasurer.acgov.org.

The ALCO TTC will consider applications for waivers of penalties, interest, and costs for delinquent taxes if the reason for delinquent payment is due to demonstrated COVID‐19 related circumstances such as health or financial hardship to the taxpayer, and that the failure to pay was due to circumstances beyond the taxpayer’s control.

Taxpayers must have paid their first installment; all taxpayers will be required to provide documentation of the COVID‐19 related reason. Examples of such documentation are in the policy found online. Taxpayers will be required to sign under penalty of perjury. The ALCO TTC will begin to review waiver penalty requests on a case‐by‐case basis, beginning on Monday, April 13th. Taxpayers must make full payment of their taxes before the application for waiver will be reviewed.

Taxpayers may call 510‐272‐6800 for more information. The application submission may be completed electronically. Payment by check is recommended.

Qualified waiver requests will not be processed until payments are made.

This procedure will be in place until May 4th. New policies will be announced in the future.
