3. DIRECT the Clerk of the Board to file certified copies of the Final Annual Report and Resolution No. 2018/253 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 T-1 will provide revenues for public transit services. The CSA T-1 annual total assessment was $513,902.28 for Fiscal Year 2017-2018 and will be $547,974.26 in Fiscal Year 2018-2019. The increase is based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the San Francisco Bay Area (All Urban Consumers). The number of parcels assessed increased from 1,087 in Fiscal Year 2017-2018 to 1,123 in Fiscal Year 2018-2019. The assessment charge was $422.68/developed equivalent dwelling unit in Fiscal Year 2017-2018 and will be $437.74/developed equivalent dwelling unit in Fiscal Year 2018-2019.
The maximum assessment may be adjusted annually to reflect 2% or the prior year’s change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for All Urban Consumers, whichever is greater.
On June 5, 2018, the Board of Supervisors conducted a public hearing and adopted Resolution No. 2018/139 confirming the Fiscal Year 2018-2019 Tentative Annual Report on proposed assessment charges for CSA T-1. CSA T-1 provides public transit 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 land use code of a parcel. Upon review of the official assessment roll, staff determined that revisions to the Tentative Annual Report were required in order to conform to the official assessment roll. These included changes in the use codes of parcels. The Tentative Annual Report as revised is the Final Annual Report. See Attachment 1.
The Board may confirm the Final Annual Report by resolution. Resolution No. 2018/253 serves to confirm the Final Annual Report and constitutes the levy of the service 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, service charges for CSA T-1 would not be levied or collected in Fiscal Year 2018-2019. Therefore, the District would be unable to provide public transit services and an alternate source of funding would have to be identified.
