The following impartial analysis of Measure P was prepared by the office of the county counsel:
|“||FALLEN LEAF LAKE COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT MEASURE A This measure, if approved by 2/3 of the voters voting on the measure, would authorize a special tax on parcels of real property in the Fallen Leaf Lake Community Services District ("District") to be used solely for the costs of providing current level of emergency medical and fire protection services ("Fire Special Tax") within the District.
This special tax for parcels within the boundaries of the District is a renewal of the existing Fire Special Tax that would be in the amount "not to exceed $660.00 per unit, subject to maximum inflation adjustment of 1.5% per year, established as: unimproved 0.5 unit: improved 1.0 unit; Stanford Sierra Camp 40 units" and the "Annual Appropriations limit would allow for expenditure of these and any subvention funds that may be received from El Dorado County." The special tax authorized by this measure is a renewal of the existing Fire Special Tax that is used for the same purposes and expires, by its terms, on July 27, 2014. The Fire Special Tax would commence on July 27, 2014, and would be extended for four years. The Fire Special Tax would replace the existing benefit assessment of $595.00 currently imposed on improved parcels, $297.50 on improved parcels and $23,800.00 on Stanford Sierra Camp, that are subject to a maximum inflation adjustment of 1.5% , used for the same purposes.
The special tax will be listed as a separate item on the county property tax bill for each affected parcel of land, and will be collected in the same way as the general property tax. All laws applicable to the levy, collection, and enforcement of county property taxes, including the provisions for penalties and the procedures for sale of the property in case of delinquency, shall also apply to the special tax.
State law requires the proceeds from the special tax be applied only to the identified purposes, and that an annual report be made indicating the amount of funds collected and expended and the status of any project required or authorized to be funded by the proceeds. This measure was placed on the ballot by Resolution 2013-8 of the governing body of the District.
This measure requires an affirmative vote of 2/3 or more of all voters voting on the measure in order to pass. A "YES" vote is a vote to authorize the special tax provided in the measure. A "NO" vote is a vote against the special tax provided in the measure.
