D. RESOLUTION 2019-004: APPROVAL OF DISTRICT APPROPRIATION LIMIT JULY 1, 2019 THROUGH JUNE 30, 2020. (Staff, 5 minutes)
DESCRIPTION: California State law requires the District, annually, to choose an appropriations (spending) limit and the method by which the limit is determined. This law was adopted by the California voters through the Initiative Process in 1979. It was known as Prop 4, and it basically adds further limits on taxation limits under Prop 13. The way the annual Appropriations Limit law works, a District may not levy taxes greater than the prior year, adjusted for a cost of living factor. Since Camp Meeker never spends more than its allowed Appropriations Limit [i.e. your District runs on less tax dollars than otherwise allowed], this Annual Appropriations Limit process is largely a formality for the District and its Board. The Appropriations Limit does, however, serve as the maximum amount of tax dollar generated money that can be spent by the District. Traditionally, the District has used the standardized appropriations limit calculations provided by the County of Sonoma auditor’s office. Note that this limit applies only to the District’s tax dollars, and does not set a limit on the “enterprise” sourced revenues (i.e. the dollars you pay for water). The County of Sonoma Auditor recommends that the District’s limit be established at $296,597 for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2020.
PROPOSED ACTION: The Board may/may not will decide whether to approve Resolution 2019-004 establishing the District’s appropriation’s limit for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2020.
E. UPDATE:VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION: BOARD SERVICE CATHIE ANDERSON (Gary Helfrich, Staff, 10 minutes)
DESCRIPTION: The Board will review presentation of appreciation for Catherine (Cathie) Castle Anderson’s long-term service on the Recreation and Park Board.
PROPOSED ACTION: No action needed.
F. SCWA INVOICES AND AMENDED AGREEMENT (Anthony Tominia, 5 minutes)
DESCRIPTION: The Sonoma County Water Agency has submitted bills to the District totaling $11,841.71 for water in accordance with the amended agreement of October 2016. The Board will discuss the agreement and bills.
PROPOSED ACTION: The Board may take further action.
G. PROPOSED POLICY:ABANDONED AUTO ON DISTRICT PROPERTY (Valery Larson, 5 minutes)
