Análisis del analista legislativo / Proposal

Michael Ciccozzi, Interim County Counsel

 The County of El Dorado operates under a County Charter that was ratified by the voters on November 8, 1994.  The California Constitution provides that a county may adopt a charter to govern itself in regard to specific matters that are identified in Article XI section 4 and the voters may amend the charter by a majority vote of the electors voting on the question.

 

On March 8, 2016, the Board of Supervisors of the County of El Dorado (Board) placed this measure on the ballot to seek voter approval to delete El Dorado County Charter section 210 c, that requires voter approval for new benefit assessments or for increases to existing benefit assessments, on real property.  Measure J proposes to update the El Dorado County Charter by deleting Charter section 210 c. because the substance of this section is now covered by general state law, after passage of Proposition 218 by voters in November of 1996; Charter section 210c. was adopted by El Dorado County voters in 1994. Proposition 218 requires that all general and special taxes, and new and increased benefit assessments, and most property related fees and charges on property owners are subject to voter approval.

 

A “yes” vote is a vote in favor of removing El Dorado County Charter section 210c. because it is now covered by state law after passage of Proposition 218 in 1996.

  

A “no” vote is a vote against amending the current El Dorado County Charter section 210c.

c. Increases to current benefit assessments on real property, or the imposition of any benefit assessment not previously imposed on real property shall not be effective unless and until approved by a majority of the voters voting in the geographic area in which the assessment will be imposed. A continuation of a previous benefit assessment in the same or lower amount is not covered by this section.
