LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 121, Dickinson. Counties: disposition of real property.
Existing law authorizes the board of supervisors of a county to sell or lease any real property belonging to the county, as specified, provided that the board complies with certain procedural requirements. Existing law authorizes the board to enter into a lease, concession, or managerial contract involving county owned, leased, or managed property for specified purposes, without otherwise complying with the existing procedural requirements.
This bill would additionally authorize the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors to sell or enter into a lease, concession, or managerial contract involving a specified area of county property that the county has acquired from the federal government due to the closure of Mather Air Force Base or McClellan Air Force Base, without complying with the existing procedural requirements referenced above, in accordance with conditions prescribed in the bill. The bill, in a similar manner, would additionally authorize the County of Merced, by a 4/5 vote of the board of supervisors, to sell a specified area of county property that the county has acquired from the federal government due to the closure of Castle Air Force Base. The bill would prohibit the provisions for each county from being construed to release the county from complying with specified postcompliance provisions relating to redevelopment successor agencies, if the relevant property is located in a former redevelopment area.
This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for those counties relative to the disposition by each county of the above-described properties.

SEC. 3.

 The Legislature finds and declares that a special law is necessary and that a general law cannot be made applicable within the meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution because of the unique needs of the County of Sacramento and the County of Merced relative to the disposition of the properties acquired from the federal government by those counties pursuant to the closure of Mather Air Force Base and McClellan Air Force Base in Sacramento County and Castle Air Force Base in Merced County.
