The City of Twentynine Palms directly provides the full range of municipal services except for law enforcement, retail water and fire protection. The City has chosen to contract with the County for law enforcement services. Retail water is provided by the independent Twentynine Palms Water District. Effective July 2016, the San Bernardino Fire Protection District and its South Desert Service Zone assumed fire protection and emergency response services from the Twentynine Palms Water District via LAFCO action. As a part of that action, the City assumed the net pension and related deferred amounts associated with the District’s safety retirement plan. Property Tax as identified in the audit includes utility unitary tax. The agency retirement plan is administered by CalPERS. Additional information on the City can be accessed via the link below.
