For financial reporting purposes, determining eligibility in state programs, and other reasons, state and local agencies occasionally ask the Department to determine whether certain entities meet the definition of a special district. When they do not, we add them to this list and provide the reason they do not meet the definition. The list also contains some old districts that were dissolved before the Department had its existing database.
  16. Special District Web Sites - This is an alphabetical listing of each special district's name. If the special district has provided the Department with its web site, the name of the district will link to that web site.
