            WHEREAS, said Engineer's Report was filed with the City Clerk and the City Council has reviewed the Report and wishes to take certain actions relative to said Report and the levy of assessments recommended therein.

            SECTION 2.      It is the intention of this Council to continue to collect assessments within the Assessment Districts for fiscal year 2018/2019.  Within the Assessment Districts, the existing and proposed improvements, and any substantial changes proposed to be made to the existing improvements, are generally described as the installation, maintenance and servicing of public facilities, including but not limited to, street lights, public lighting facilities, landscaping, sprinkler systems, statuary, fountains, other ornamental structures and facilities, landscape corridors, ground cover, shrubs and trees, street frontages, drainage systems, fencing, entry monuments, graffiti removal and repainting, and labor, materials, supplies, utilities and equipment, as applicable, for property owned, operated or maintained by the City of Moorpark.  Installation means the construction of lighting and landscaping improvements, including, but not limited to, land preparation, such as grading, leveling, cutting and filling, sod, landscaping, irrigation systems, sidewalks and drainage and lights.  Maintenance means the furnishing of services and materials for the ordinary and usual maintenance, operation and servicing of said improvements, including repair, removal, or replacement of all or part of any improvement; providing for the life, growth, health and beauty of landscaping; and cleaning, sandblasting and painting of walls and other improvements to remove or cover graffiti.  Servicing means the furnishing of electric current or energy for the operation or lighting of any improvements, and water for irrigation of any landscaping or the maintenance of any other improvements.

RESOLUTION NO. 2018-3700

 

A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF MOORPARK, CALIFORNIA, DECLARING ITS INTENTION TO CONTINUE ASSESSMENTS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2018/2019, PRELIMINARILY APPROVING ENGINEER'S REPORT, AND PROVIDING FOR NOTICE OF HEARING FOR THE PARKS AND RECREATION MAINTENANCE AND IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT OF THE CITY OF MOORPARK

 

            WHEREAS, on July 16, 1999, by its Resolution No. 99-1625, after receiving a weighted majority of ballots in support of the proposed assessment, this Council ordered the formation of and levied the first assessment within the City of Moorpark Parks and Recreation Maintenance and Improvement District (the "Assessment District") pursuant to the provisions of Article XIIID of the California Constitution, and the Landscaping and Lighting Act of 1972 (the "Act"), Part 2 of Division 15 of the California Streets and Highways Code (commencing with Section 22500 thereof); and

 

      WHEREAS, the first Engineer’s Report for Fiscal Year 1999/2000 described how the Assessment District would be established, determined the uses of the assessment funds, established the methodology by which the assessments would be applied to properties in the Assessment District, established that the assessment is subject to an annual adjustment tied to the 12-month change in the Consumer Price Index-U for the Los Angeles Area as of December of each succeeding year (the “CPI”), and stated that the assessment would continue year-to-year until terminated by the City Council; and

 

      WHEREAS, although the methodology by which the assessments are applied to properties in the Assessment District does not change from year to year, a new Engineer’s Report is prepared each year in order to establish the CPI adjustment for that year; the new maximum authorized assessment rate for that year; the budget for that year; and the amount to be charged to each parcel in the Assessment District that year, subject to that year’s assessment rate and any changes in the attributes of the properties in the Assessment District, including but not limited to use changes, parcel subdivisions, and/or parcel consolidations; and

 

            WHEREAS, on February 7, 2018 by Resolution No. 2018-3671, the City Council ordered the preparation of an Engineer's Report for the Assessment District for fiscal year 2018/2019; and

 

         WHEREAS, pursuant to said Resolution, the Engineer's Report was prepared by SCI Consulting Group, Engineer of Work, in accordance with 22565, et. seq., of the Streets and Highways Code (the "Report") and Article XIIID of the California Constitution; and

           

            WHEREAS, said Engineer's Report was filed with the City Clerk and the City Council has reviewed the Report and wishes to take certain actions relative to said Report.

 

            NOW, THEREFORE, THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF MOORPARK, CALIFORNIA, DOES RESOLVE AS FOLLOWS:

 

            SECTION 1.      The Report for "PARKS AND RECREATION MAINTENANCE AND IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT", on file with the City Clerk, has been duly considered by the Moorpark City Council and is hereby deemed sufficient and approved.  The Report shall stand as the Engineer's Report for all subsequent proceedings under, and pursuant to, the foregoing resolution.

 

            SECTION 2.      It is the intention of this Council to continue to collect assessments within the Assessment District for fiscal year 2018/2019.  Within the Assessment District, the existing and proposed improvements, and any substantial changes proposed to be made to the existing improvements, are generally described as the installation, maintenance and servicing of public facilities, including but not limited to, landscaping, sprinkler systems, park grounds, park facilities, landscape corridors, ground cover, shrubs and trees, street frontages, playground equipment and hardcourt areas, senior and community centers, drainage systems, lighting, fencing, entry monuments, basketball courts, tennis courts, running tracks, other recreational facilities, security guards, graffiti removal and repainting, and labor, materials, supplies, utilities and equipment, as applicable, for property owned and maintained by the City of Moorpark. Installation means the construction of recreational improvements, including, but not limited to, land preparation, such as grading, leveling, cutting and filling, sod, landscaping, irrigation systems, sidewalks and drainage, lights, playground equipment, play courts, recreational facilities and public restrooms.  Maintenance means the furnishing of services and materials for the ordinary and usual maintenance, operation and servicing of said improvements, including repair, removal, or replacement of all or part of any improvement; providing for the life, growth, health and beauty of landscaping; and cleaning, sandblasting and painting of walls and other improvements to remove or cover graffiti.  Servicing means the furnishing of electric current or energy for the operation or lighting of any improvements, and water for irrigation of any landscaping or the maintenance of any other improvements.

 

            SECTION 3.      The Assessment District consists of the lots and parcels shown on the boundary map of the Assessment District on file with the City Clerk, and reference is hereby made to such map for further particulars.

 

            SECTION 4.      Reference is hereby made to the Engineer’s Report for a full and detailed description of the improvements, the boundaries of the Assessment District and the proposed assessments upon assessable lots and parcels of land within the Assessment District.  The Engineer’s Report identifies all parcels which will have a special benefit conferred upon them and upon which an assessment will be imposed.

SECTION 5.      The assessment is subject to an annual adjustment tied to the Consumer Price Index-U for the Los Angeles Area as of December of each succeeding year (the “CPI”), with a maximum annual adjustment not to exceed 3.00%.  Any change in the CPI in excess of 3% shall be cumulatively reserved as the “Unused CPI” and shall be used to increase the maximum authorized assessment rate in years in which the CPI is less than 3.00%.  The maximum authorized assessment rate is equal to the maximum assessment rate in the first fiscal year the assessment was levied adjusted annually by the minimum of 1) 3.00% or 2) the change in the CPI plus any Unused CPI as described above.

 

The change in the CPI from December 2016 to December 2017 was 3.60%.  Therefore, the maximum authorized assessment rate for fiscal year 2018/2019 is increased by 3.00% which equates to $61.48 per single family equivalent benefit unit.  The estimate of cost and budget in the Engineer’s Report proposes assessments for fiscal year 2018/2019 at the rate of $61.48.

 

            SECTION 6.      Notice is hereby given that on June 6, 2018, at the hour of 6:30 p.m. in the Community Center Apricot Room, located at 799 Moorpark Avenue, Moorpark, California 93021, the Council will hold a public hearing to consider the ordering of the improvements and the continuation of the proposed assessments.

 

            SECTION 7.      Prior to the conclusion of the hearing, any interested person may file a written protest with the City Clerk, or, having previously filed a protest, may file a written withdrawal of that protest.  A written protest shall state all grounds of objection.  A protest by a property owner shall contain a description sufficient to identify the property owned by such owner.  Such protest or withdrawal of protest should be mailed to SCI Consulting Group, 4745 Mangels Blvd., Fairfield, CA 94534.

 

          SECTION 8.      The City Clerk shall cause a notice of the hearing to be given by publishing a copy of this resolution once, at least ten (10) days prior to the date of the hearing above specified, in a newspaper circulated in the City of Moorpark.

 

            SECTION 9.      The City Clerk shall certify to the adoption of this resolution and shall cause a certified resolution to be filed in the book of original resolutions.

 

            PASSED AND ADOPTED this 2nd day of May, 2018.
