Annexation of Property to the Fair Oaks Sewer Maintenance District Lands of Harris - Woodside Area



Acting as the governing Board of the Fair Oaks Sewer Maintenance District, adopt a resolution setting a time and place for a public hearing to consider the proposed annexation of the Lands of Harris to the Fair Oaks Sewer Maintenance District (District).


Previous Board Action

Entered into an agreement (Agreement) with the Town of Woodside (Town) to provide for the transport and treatment of sewage from the Town's Redwood Creek Main Trunk and Glens Collection System Assessment District (Assessment District).


Key Facts


The Agreement provides for annexations of property within the Town that can be served by the District, and requires the Town to approve any proposed property annexation.



The property to be annexed is within the Assessment District, but is not within the current boundaries of the District.



The Town has consented to the proposed annexation.



A public hearing to consider an annexation to the District is required pursuant to Section 5838 et seq. of the Streets and Highways Code.



William G. and Julie C. Harris, whose property is at 120 Croyden Way and identified by Assessor's Parcel Number 069-141-050, have requested that their property be annexed to the District for the purpose of receiving sewer service. The Town of Woodside has adopted Resolution No. 2004-6441 consenting to the proposed annexation.


We are recommending that a public hearing be set for your regular meeting of July 6, 2004, at 9:30 a.m., and we will post the required notices if your Board adopts the proposed resolution.


Vision Alignment

We believe our recommendation is consistent with the Shared Vision Commitments to "ensure basic health and safety for all" and to be a "responsive, effective and collaborative government;" and Goal Number 7, "maintain and enhance the public safety for all residents and visitors," as proceeding with the annexation can result in providing effective sanitary sewer service to a parcel in a suburban area, that would otherwise use an "on site" method to handle wastewater which could have an impact on neighboring residents.


Fiscal Impact

The property owner has paid or will pay all required fees for each parcel as follows:



Annexation Processing Fee:




District Connection Fees:




The State Board of Equalization's Recording and Mapping Fee:




Sewer Inspection Permit Fee:



The property owners will also be subject to the annual District sewer charge which is currently $227.


There is no impact on the County General Fund.


A form of resolution and agreement has been approved by County Counsel.
