Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost:  No change to Net County Cost.  The Cameron Park Library is funded primarily from taxes and charges for services (79%) with a Net County Cost of $95,259 (21%).
 
Background:  On July 2, 1993 the Board adopted Resolution 225-93 establishing a library benefit assessment for the operation of the Cameron Park Branch Library.  An advisory vote in June 1994 received a 53% majority in favor of continuing the assessment. The assessment is necessary to fund most of the operating costs of the Cameron Park Library (staff, books, utilities).
 
Reason for Recommendation:  Benefit Assessment law requires an annual public hearing to receive comment regarding the continuation of the assessment. The amount of the assessment is $25 per dwelling unit, with exceptions for apartments which are assessed at $20 and mobile homes in parks which are assessed at $12.50. The assessment has remained unchanged since 1993.
 
Action(s) to be taken following Board approval:  Auditor/Controller to place assessment on 2012/2013 tax bills.
