LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1323, Hernandez. Maintenance districts: County of Los Angeles.
(1) Existing law, the Landscaping and Lighting Act of 1972, authorizes local agencies, including a city or county, to form an assessment district for the purpose of making improvements by, among other things, installing landscaping.
This bill would, in addition to a district’s existing authority to perform specified maintenance under the Improvement Act of 1911, authorize the county lighting maintenance districts for the County of Los Angeles to also perform maintenance and make improvements pursuant to the Landscaping and Lighting Act of 1972.
(2) This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the Landscaping and Lighting District of the County of Los Angeles.
(3) This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
Vote: 2/3   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 In addition to a district’s authority to perform maintenance as defined in Section 5835.3 of the Streets and Highways Code, the county lighting maintenance districts for the County of Los Angeles may also perform maintenance and make improvements pursuant to Sections 22525 and 22531 of the Streets and Highways Code.

SEC. 2.

 The Legislature finds and declares that a special statute is necessary and that a general statute cannot be made applicable within the meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution because of the unique need to perform maintenance and make improvements by the county lighting maintenance districts for the County of Los Angeles.

SEC. 3.

 This act is an urgency statute necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, or safety within the meaning of Article IV of the California Constitution and shall go into immediate effect. The facts constituting the necessity are:
In order for the county lighting maintenance districts for the County of Los Angeles to utilize funds collected pursuant to the Improvement Act of 1911 to purchase streetlights serving the unincorporated area of the county for ownership and enhanced maintenance by July 18, 2018, it is necessary for this act to go into immediate effect.
