Does the County have an accurate and complete history of the development of the TCSD, commitments, locations, and issues that is publicly available?

Yes, all TCSD documents are public documents and available to any resident who wishes to view or have a copy of them. Further, to provide clarity on the TCSD, we created this Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section with the goal of explaining the past, present, and future of the TCSD. Most key documents can be found in these FAQs, and we will continue to add information based on questions that are asked by citizens that are not already addressed here. The TCSD portion of the County Code can be found here: County Code
