AVA (Abandoned Vehicle
Yuba County is the local Service Authority for the States Abandoned
Vehicle Abatement Program. The authority has three (3) entity members
consisting of the County of Yuba, the City of Marysville and the City of
Wheatland. The program is designed to assist service authorities by
offsetting the cost to remove vehicles that are abandoned, wrecked,
dismantled or otherwise inoperable within the County right-of-way.
Of the 58 Counties in the State of California approximately 36 Service
Authorities have been established. This program is funded by registration
fees. A $1.00 (one dollar) fee is collected each time a vehicle / motorcycle
/ vessel is registered within the County. Based on a fiscal year, each
participating service authority is provided funding in quarterly increments.
Each year the service authority is required to submit an annual report to
the State Department of Finance. This report will identify the total amount
of funds received, the number of vehicles removed, total expenditures for
the service authority, the cost of each removal and any unexpended funds.
If you want to report a vehicle or have any questions about this program,
please contact the office.
Vehicles abandoned on private property are presumed to be the
property owners responsibility and are not
subject to removal with AVA funding; therefore, the
property owner will be charged for the removal. The California Highway Patrol is the
primary agency for the State Highways.
