Impartial analysis / Proposal

David A. Livingston, El Dorado County, County Counsel

Measure L (the “Measure”), if approved by two-thirds of the voters voting thereon, would authorize the levy of a special tax at the rate of $500 per parcel (whether improved or unimproved) per year within the Lynx Trail Road Zone of Benefit 30 of County Service Area 9 (the “Zone”). This Measure was placed on the ballot by the Board of Supervisors of the County of El Dorado at the request of the advisory committee for the Zone pursuant to Resolution No. 176-2019, which was passed at an official meeting of the Board of Supervisors on October 22, 2019.

If approved, the special tax authorized by this Measure will be used solely for the purpose of road improvements and maintenance services within the Zone. The special tax authorized by this Measure would become effective in Fiscal Year 2020/2021 and remain in effect until modified or repealed by the voters. The special tax authorized by this Measure is expected to generate revenue of approximately $37,500 per year. If the Measure is approved, the special tax would replace an existing annual special tax of $300 per parcel. If the Measure is not approved, the existing special tax will remain in effect.

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.

The special tax authorized by this Measure 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 manner 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.
