Body
DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION
El Dorado County Air Quality Management District (AQMD) recommending the Board, acting as the AQMD Board of Directors, adopt the the Fiscal Year 2018/19 recommended budget for the El Dorado County AQMD.

The stationary source fees and dust plan fees are being increased by 2.8% based upon the change in the California Consumer Price Index (for more information on the fees please see Attachment A, page 5). Notifications have been sent out regarding the fees.

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
Health and Safety Code sections 40130-40131 require that air districts adopt their budgets in an open process, separate from other budget processes to ensure full opportunity for the public to participate in, and comment upon, a district's budget prior to adoption. Beginning on May 5, 2018, AQMD prepared and made available to the public a summary of the proposed budget including the proposed schedule of fees. Direct mail notices were sent to all addresses that were subject to AQMD fees during fiscal year 2018/19 regarding the availability of the budget summary online and at the AQMD office, and regarding the public hearing date and location. As such, a public hearing was held on June 5, 2018. The Board approved the proposed budget and continued the matter to June 26, 2018 for final adoption.
