Subject/Title: Adopt a Resolution certifying the results of the Special Municipal Election held on November 8, 2005, and such other matters as provided by law

Prepared by: Margaret Wimberly, City Clerk

Submitted by: Karen Chew, Assistant City Manager

RECOMMENDATION
Adopt a Resolution certifying the results the Special Municipal Election held on November 8, 2005, and such other matters as provided by law.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On July 26, 2005, the City Council approved Resolution 2005-190 certifying the results of the petition, and calling and giving notice of a special municipal election to be held on November 8, 2005, relating to the City of Brentwood voter-approved Urban Limit Line (ULL) Measure (Measure L).

BACKGROUND
A special municipal election was held on November 8, 2005, pursuant to Resolution 2005-190 adopted on July 26, 2005. The Contra Costa County Registrar of Voters has canvassed the results pursuant to the Elections Code.

The Measure voted on at the Election was:

Measure L - Shall the voters approve the City of Brentwood Voter Approved Urban Limit Line measure, which would amend the City of Brentwood’s General Plan by creating an Urban Limit Line to guide future growth and development in a manner consistent with the General Plan and should qualify the City of Brentwood to receive Measure J’s “return to source” funds from the Contra Costa Transportation Authority for improvements to local streets and roads?

As indicated on Exhibit A Measure L failed to pass. The number of votes given at each precinct and the number of votes given in the City for and against the Measure are listed in “Exhibit A”.

FISCAL IMPACT
An estimate was received from the Contra Costa County Elections Department in July of 2005, for a cost of $3.25 per voter. There are currently 19,136 registered voters in the City of Brentwood for a total estimated cost of $62,192. The final invoice for the November 8, 2005, election has not yet been received.

Attachments: Resolution with Exhibit A
