RESOLVED, by the Board of Supervisors of the County of San Mateo, State of California, that
WHEREAS, as a service to cities and special districts, the County collects certain special taxes through the countywide property tax bill and, in exchange for collecting such special taxes, the County is compensated pursuant to agreements with each of the affected taxing entities, school districts, and special districts; and
WHEREAS, in connection with the County’s collection of special assessments, taxes, and charges in FY 2010/2011, concern was raised that the collection fees for entities with countywide assessments, taxes, or charges were excessive notwithstanding their limitation to 5% of the amounts collected; and
WHEREAS, in light of this concern, the Office of the Controller recommends that the County modify its collection schedule to provide that, for special assessments, taxes, or charges levied on more than 200,000 parcels in a fiscal year, the aggregate fees to be paid shall be $85,000.; and
WHEREAS, such modification to the County’s compensation schedule currently only affects the fees imposed for the collection of the San Mateo County Community College District’s special taxes and only that agreement is presented for approval and execution.
NOW THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY DETERMINED AND ORDERED THAT the collection schedule for special assessments, taxes, or charges levied on more than 200,000 parcels in a fiscal year shall be modified to provide that the aggregate fees to be paid shall be $85,000; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT the Controller, or the Controller’s designee, is hereby authorized to execute an agreement with the San Mateo County Community College District, in substantially the form submitted herewith, for the purpose of compensating the County for its collection of the district’s special taxes.
