3. DIRECT the Clerk of the Board to file certified copies of the Final Annual Report and Resolution No. 2018/251 with the County Auditor-Controller.
4. DIRECT the County Auditor-Controller to include the assessment charges on the assessment roll for Fiscal Year 2018-2019, the assessment charge for each parcel to appear as a separate item on the tax bill, pursuant to County Ordinance Code section 1012-2.614.
The levy of the annual assessment charges in CSA M-30 will provide revenues for police services, park and roadside landscape maintenance, public street maintenance and street lighting services. The CSA M-30 total annual assessment was $47,255.20 for Fiscal Year 2017-2018 and will be $49,918.40 in Fiscal Year 2018-2019. This increase is based on the approved annual escalator outlined in the CSA M-30 formation documents. The annual escalator is equal to the annual change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the San Francisco Bay Area (All Urban Consumers) plus two (2) percent. There are 40 developed parcels in the CSA. The assessment charge per parcel for CSA M-30 was $1,181.38 for Fiscal Year 2017-2018 and will be $1,247.96 for Fiscal Year 2018-2019.
The maximum service charge may be adjusted annually to reflect the prior year’s change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for All Urban Consumers plus two percent (2%).
On June 5, 2018, the Board of Supervisors conducted a public hearing and adopted Resolution No. 2018/137 confirming the Fiscal Year 2018-2019 Tentative Annual Report on proposed assessment charges for CSA M-30. CSA M-30 provides police services, park and roadside landscape maintenance, public street maintenance and street lighting services.
On July 1, 2018, the County Assessor released the official assessment roll for Contra Costa County for Fiscal Year 2018-2019. Thereafter, pursuant to Section 1012-2.612 of the County Ordinance Code, the Public Works Director directed staff to determine whether the Tentative Annual Report required revision in order to conform to the official assessment roll. Any change to an estimated basic assessment charge or estimated assessment charge notated in the Tentative Annual Report may only be accommodated as a result of changes in ownership, changes of address, the subdivision of an existing parcel or changes in the use code of a parcel. Upon review of the official assessment roll, staff determined that no revisions were required. The Tentative Annual Report is the Final Annual Report.
The Board may confirm the Final Annual Report by resolution. Resolution No. 2018/251 serves to confirm the Final Annual Report and constitutes the levy of the assessment charge for Fiscal Year 2018-2019.
CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:
If a resolution confirming the Fiscal Year 2018-2019 Final Annual Report is not adopted, assessment charges for CSA M-30 would not be levied or collected in Fiscal Year 2018-2019. Therefore, CSA M-30 would be unable to provide police services, park and roadside landscape maintenance, public street maintenance and street lighting services and an alternate source of funding would have to be identified.
