NOTICE OF ELECTION

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a special all mailed ballot election will be held on June 06, 2017, within the boundaries of the City of Portola, to place a measure before the voters to levy a special fire tax.

Measure B:

“Upon a 2/3 vote of approval shall the City of Portola be authorized and empowered to adopt Ordinance No. 345 establishing an annual special tax, for each parcel of real property within the City, to be collected and apportioned along with the County property taxes, without expiration commencing July 1, 2017, with an annual cost of living adjustment, to be used for providing and enhancing necessary fire protection, prevention and suppression services, emergency medical and rescue services and hazardous material emergency response services?”

ORDINANCE NO.345

AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF PORTOLA, COUNTY OF PLUMAS ADDING CHAPTER 3.22 OF THE CITY OF PORTOLA MUNICIPAL CODE PROVIDING FOR A FIRE PROTECTION AND EMERGENCY RESPONSE TAX

The Council of the City of Portola, California, ordains as follows:

Chapter 3.22 – FIRE PROTECTION AND EMERGENCY RESPONSE TAX

3.22.010 – Title

3.22.020 – Findings

3.22.030 – Purpose and intent

3.22.040 – Definitions

3.22.050 – Authority

3.22.060 – Election

3.22.070 – Effective date

3.22.080 – Amount of special tax

3.22.090 – Repeal of special taxes

3.30.100 – Method of collection

3.30.110 – Unexpended revenue

3.30.120 – Accountability measures

3.30.130 – Appropriations limit

3.30.140 – Exemptions

3.30.150 – Severability

3.22.010 – Title

This chapter shall be known as the “Fire Protection and Emergency Response Tax.”

3.22.020 – Findings

A. Section 4 of Article XIIIA of the California Constitution permits cities by a two-thirds vote of their qualified electorate to levy a special tax on property, and Government Code Section 50075 authorizes a local agency to levy a special tax pursuant to Government Code Section 53978 for fire protection prevention services.

B. This City Council (“City Council”) is the governing body of the City of Portola (“City”).

C. In 1983 the voters of the City approved a special tax in the amount of $12.52 per year for improved parcels and $6.26 per year for unimproved parcels to provide a source of funding for fire protection services. These amounts have remained unchanged for nearly 34 years and have over time become insufficient and unsustainable to fund the needs of the City to provide adequate financial resources to fund fire protection, suppression, training and emergency response, operations, capital acquisitions, maintenance and improvements and emergency response services.

D. The City Council has determined that a Special Tax is required to provide an adequate and sustainable financial foundation for providing and enhancing necessary fire protection, prevention and suppression services, emergency medical and rescue services and hazardous material emergency response services, including general operating and administrative expenses, acquiring, operating and maintaining fire protection, prevention and suppression and emergency response equipment, payment of personnel costs and training, and funding capital improvements.

E. The City Council has determined that it is in the best interests of the City to have one special tax for fire protection, suppression, training and emergency response services, as further specified herein.

3.22.030 – Purpose and intent

It is the purpose and intent of this chapter to authorize the levy of a special tax on parcels of real property on the secured property tax rolls of Plumas County that are within the City of Portola, commencing with the Fiscal Year 2017-2018, in order to use in providing and enhancing necessary fire protection, prevention and suppression services, emergency medical and rescue services and hazardous material emergency response services, including general operating and administrative expenses, acquiring, operating and maintaining fire protection, prevention and suppression and emergency response equipment, payment of personnel costs and training, and funding capital improvements. Because the burden of this tax falls on property, it is a property tax, but it is not determined according to, nor is it in any manner based on the value of the property. This tax is based, to the extent practical, upon the risk of fire or the need for medical aid service to each parcel and the improvement thereon. Insofar as not inconsistent with this chapter, such provision of California Revenue and Taxation Code as related to ad valorem property taxes are intended to apply to the collection and administration of this tax. As authorized by Government Code Section 53978, this tax is not an ad valorem tax and the exemptions contained in or authorized by Article XIII of the California Constitution shall not apply.

3.22.040 – Definitions

As used in this chapter:

“Developed parcel” means any parcel upon which an improvement exists.

“Improvement” means those items included within the Revenue and Taxation Code Section 105 definition of improvement, except for: a) fence, poles and walls that are not a part or connected to a structure; b) trees and vines.

“City” means the City of Portola.

“Existing Fire Tax” means the special tax approved in 1983 by the voters of the City in the amount of $12.52 per year for improved parcels and $6.26 per year for unimproved parcels to provide a source of funding for fire protection services.

“Parcel” means the land and improvements thereon, designated by a parcel number on the assessor’s parcel map and carried on the secured property tax roll of Plumas County, for the purpose of this chapter, parcel does not include any land or improvement outside the boundaries of the City of Portola.

“Special Tax” means the tax authorized and levied pursuant to this chapter.

“Taxpayer” means the assessee of the property shown on the secured tax roll or the person or legal entity actually paying the tax, if different from the assessee.

“Year” or “fiscal year” means the period of July 1 through the following June 30.

3.22.050 – Authority

This Ordinance is adopted pursuant to Article XIIIA, Section 4, Article XIIIB and Article XIIIC, Section 2 of the California Constitution; Article 3.5 (commencing with Section 50075) of Chapter 1 of Part 1 of Division 1 of Title 5 of the California Government Code; Article 3.7 (commencing with Section 53720) of Chapter 4 of Part 1 of Division 2 of Title 5 of the California Government Code; and Section 53978 of the California Government Code.

3.22.060 – Election

Pursuant to Government Code Section 50075 et seq., the City will request that the Plumas County Board of Supervisors direct the Elections Official to place a measure on the ballot for a Special Election, scheduled on June 6, 2017, for the purpose of submitting to the voters of the City the question of the Special Tax to be levied by the City in the amounts and for the purposes herein set forth.

3.22.070 – Effective date

The election to approve this Ordinance shall take place on June 6, 2017. The ordinance codified by this chapter and the Fire Protection and Emergency Response Tax shall become effective upon passage of this Ordinance by the City Council and a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the electorate of the City voting in the election as certified by the Plumas County Elections Official.

3.22.080 – Amount of special tax

A. For the initial Fiscal Year, July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018 (the “Base Year”), the special tax shall be levied upon property in the following amounts, herein called the “Base Year Amount”:

The City Council shall establish the amount of the Special Tax annually by Resolution in amounts not to exceed the maximum amounts specified herein. In no case shall the amount of the Special Tax to be levied in any fiscal year exceed the maximum amount authorized herein without an approval of the voters.

C. The Special Tax shall be levied in perpetuity.

D. This Ordinance is not intended to repeal or replace any other special tax, except for the Existing Special Tax as set forth in Section 3.22.090 of this Ordinance.

3.22.090 – Repeal of special taxes

This Ordinance shall not be construed to repeal or replace any existing assessment or special taxes, however, on the express condition that, (1) the Special Tax is approved by the electorate of the City and (2) the Special Tax becomes effective, then the City hereby repeals the Existing Fire Tax as of the date that the Special Tax becomes effective.

3.30.100 – Method of collection

A. The City hereby directs the Tax Collector of the County of Plumas to collect the Special Tax authorized herein for the initial Fiscal Year 2017-2018 and for subsequent fiscal years, on the same tax roll at the same time and in the same manner, and subject to the same penalties as the property taxes fixed and collected by the County of Plumas (the “County”) on behalf of the City. The County may deduct its reasonable costs incurred for such services before remittal to the City.

B. The Special Tax, together with all penalties and interest thereon, shall constitute a lien upon each parcel of property upon which it is levied until it has been paid, and said Special Tax, together with all penalties and interest thereon, shall, until paid, constitute a personal obligation to the City by the person(s) who own the parcel of property on the date said Special Tax is due.

3.30.110 – Unexpended revenue

Any surplus monies raised by the City from the Special Tax may in the discretion of the City Council be used in the succeeding year for the purposes stated in this Ordinance.
