LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 715, Dickinson. Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency: assessments.
Existing law, the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency Act, makes legislative findings and declarations relating to the establishment and purposes of the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency. The act provides that the membership, boundaries, purposes, and governance of the agency are to be as set forth in a specified joint exercise of powers agreement. The act grants to the agency the authority to impose assessments or special taxes, and issue bonds, to finance projects in accordance with specified laws.
This bill would authorize the agency to change the boundaries of an assessment district, a project, an assessment, or an act, determination, or provision with respect to an assessment district in accordance with specified procedures. This bill would prohibit the agency from undertaking any change with respect to any assessment district while bonds secured by the assessments levied in that assessment district are outstanding unless the board of the agency determines in the resolution of intention with respect to the change that the change will not interfere with the timely retirement of the bonds.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO
