RECOMMENDATION

 

Staff recommends the City Council conduct a public hearing and adopt a resolution confirming and levying the assessment for Landscape Maintenance Assessment District No.1 for Fiscal Year 2021/2022.

 

 

PROCEDURE

 

1.                     Mayor seeks motion from City Council to receive and file the affidavits of publication and posting of notices and correspondence received in response to the public hearing notices; and,

 

2.                     Mayor calls for a staff report and the City Council Members may pose questions to staff as desired; and,

 

3.                     Mayor seeks a motion to open the public hearing; and,

 

4.                     Mayor seeks a motion to close the public hearing after all public testimony has been presented; and,

 

5.                     The City Council discusses the item and arrives at its decision.

 

 

BACKGROUND

 

On June 14, 2021, the City Council approved the Engineer’s Report, declared its intention to order the assessment levy and collection of assessments, and set the date, time and place for this public hearing for the Landscape Maintenance District #1.

 

 

DISCUSSION

 

This year staff is proposing the rates are not increased as current revenues are sufficient to cover the maintenance cost of the District. The assessment levy per parcel is proposed to continue to be $252.13 for a total amount of $45,383.31 (180 parcels) for Fiscal Year 2021/22

 

Pursuant to Section 15.01.070.H of the Culver City Municipal Code (CCMC), any interested persons may file a written protest with the City Clerk (or withdrawal a previously filed protest) until the conclusion of the Public Hearing.  Pursuant to CCMC Section 15.01.070.K, the City Council shall not impose an increased assessment if there is a majority protest.  In this case, for Fiscal Year 2021/2022, the Engineer’s Report does not propose an increased assessment.  Therefore, the majority protest proceedings do not apply and the City Council may, after receiving public comment, adopt the resolution confirming the assessment as determined by the Engineer’s Report.

 

Pursuant to CCMC Section 15.01.070 (J and K), the City Council may choose to order changes in any of the matters provided in the report, including changes in the improvements or services, or both, any zones within the District, and the proposed diagram or proposed assessment so long as the changes do not result in an increase of the rates above the voter approved maximum rates adjusted by an inflationary formula, if any (if such formula received prior voter approval), or it may choose to adopt a resolution confirming the diagram and assessment, either as originally proposed or as changed by it.  Adoption of such resolution constitutes the assessment levy for Fiscal Year 2021/2022.  The City Council may also choose to dissolve the District pursuant to CCMC Section 15.01.065.A.3 or pay for the assessment with the City’s General Fund.

 

 

FISCAL ANALYSIS

 

A detailed analysis of the District revenues and expenses is contained in the Engineer’s Report.
