DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

Ecological Preserve Fee and Oak Woodland Conservation Fee Programs

Pursuant to Section 66006 of the California Government Code, the County is required to make available to the public specific information related to the prior year's activity for the County's mitigation fee programs.  Attachments A, B, and C provide the information required by Section 66006 for the County's Ecological Preserve Fee and Oak Woodland Mitigation Fee programs:

 

Attachment A - A brief description of the fee programs (Section 66006(b)(1)(A))

 

Attachment B - Fee schedules (Section 66006(b)(1)(B))

 

Attachment C - Cash statement

 - The beginning and ending balance of the accounts, (Section 66006(b)(1)(C)),

 - The total fees collected (Section 66006(b)(1)(D)),

 - Total interest earned in the funds (Section 66006(b)(1)(D)),

 - Identification of expenditures for the accounts (Section 66006(b)(1)(E)), and

 - Total refunds and other adjustments (Section 66006(b)(1)(H)).

 

Section 66006(b)(1)(F) requires an identification of an approximate date by which the construction of the public improvement will commence.  The Ecological Preserve Fee and Oak Woodland Conservation Fee Programs are designed to acquire land for mitigation and do not include construction of public improvements.  Therefore, there is no approximate date by which construction of a public improvement would commence and no information to disclose in the annual report.
