County Service Area 70 Zone TV-5 is governed by the County Board of Supervisors. The zone has no direct employees, it operates with personnel and supplies provided by County Service Area 70. The zone provides eight channels of UHF translator service broadcast from Pinto Mountain to a 100 square mile area encompassing the Copper Mountain Mesa, Desert Heights, Flamingo Heights, Landers, and Yucca Mesa areas of the Homestead and Yucca Valley communities. The zone provides service to approximately 18,000 households and is funded by a special tax of $25 per improved parcel on 6,816 parcels that was approved by voters in 1995. The zone does not receive general levy property tax revenue, therefore assessed value data is not compiled by the County. The audits identify the receipt of property taxes even though the zone receives a special tax.
