Majority

 

TO:

Honorable Board of Supervisors

FROM:

Neil R. Cullen, Director of Public Works

SUBJECT:

Annexation of the Lands of Tanner (225 Laning Drive, APN 073-011-090) to the Fair Oaks Sewer Maintenance District - Woodside Area

 

Recommendation

Acting as the governing board of the Fair Oaks Sewer Maintenance District and after conducting the public hearing, adopt a resolution:

 

1.

ordering the annexation of the Lands of Tanner to the Fair Oaks Sewer Maintenance District (District).

 

2.

directing the Director of Public Works to transmit a copy of the resolution ordering annexation to the Town of Woodside, the County Assessor and the State Board of Equalization.

 

Vision Alignment

Commitment: Ensure basic health and safety for all.

Goal 7: Maintain and enhance the public safety for all residents and visitors.

 

Your Board authorizing the proposed annexation can result in the District providing 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.

 

Background

 

Previous Board Action

1.

Entered into an Agreement with the Town of Woodside (Town) dated April 2, 1968, for the provision of sewage transmission and disposal through District facilities, of wastewater collected from properties within the corporate limits of Woodside and the Town’s Redwood Creek Main Trunk and Glens Collection System Assessment District, once the properties are annexed to the District.

 
   

2.

Set 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday, November 7, 2006, in your Chambers, as the time and place of a public hearing to consider the annexation of the Lands of Tanner to the District.

 

History

Dave and Deanna Tanner are the owners of property, which is eligible for annexation to the District and which is located at 225 Laning Drive. The property is also identified as Assessor’s Parcel Number 073-011-090. They have requested that their property be annexed to the District in order to receive sewer service, as their existing septic system is deteriorating.

 

A public hearing to consider an annexation to the District is required pursuant to Section 5820 et. seq. of the Streets and Highways Code.

 

Discussion

The District is able to provide sewer service to the property and the Town has consented to the annexation by adopting their Resolution 2006-6574.

 

The public hearing to consider the proposed annexation has been properly noticed and the appropriate description prepared.

 

A resolution has been approved as to form by County Counsel.

 

Fiscal Impact

The property owner has paid the required fees which include:

 
 

Annexation Processing Fee:

$800

 
 

District Connection Fees:

$3,254

 
 

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

$350

 
 

Sewer Inspection Permit Fee:

$100

 
 

The property owner will be subject to the annual sewer service charge levied by the District, currently $267 per year, and will also be required to construct and pay for the sewer main extension and sewer lateral that is necessary to bring sewer service to this property, if the annexation is approved and sewer service provided.

 

There is no impact to the General Fund.
