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
County Service Area 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 that are assessed at $20 and mobile homes in parks that are assessed at $12.50.  The assessment has remained unchanged since 1993.
 
Action(s) to be taken following Board approval
