 CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 19



Meeting Date: April 8, 2008

Subject/Title: Consideration of a Resolution extending the time limit for the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District to adopt a Resolution amending the structure of its governing board

Prepared by: Donna Landeros, City Manager


RECOMMENDATION
Adopt a Resolution extending the time limit for the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (the District) to adopt their resolution amending the structure of its governing board

PREVIOUS ACTION
On February 12, 2008, the City Council adopted Resolution 2008-31 consenting to the creation of a new governing board for the District based on the proportional representation of unincorporated portions of the County of Contra Costa, the City of Brentwood and the City of Oakley populations; requesting that the existing District governing board adopt the necessary resolutions to effectuate the governing board changes to provide for proportional population representation, method of appointment, director qualifications, vacancies and elections of officer.

BACKGROUND
On February 12, 2008 the City of Brentwood adopted a resolution related to amending the District governing board structure. The resolution included a sixty (60) day time limit for the County, the City of Oakley, and the District to adopt resolutions related to amending the District governing board structure. The time limit is set to expire on or about April 12, 2008. There have been continuing discussions between the County and the City of Oakley which have delayed adoption of the District’s resolution.

On April 2, 2008, the City received the attached correspondence from John Cullen, Contra Costa County Administrator, requesting that the City amend its resolution so that the City’s consent does not expire on April 12, 2008.

The recommended Resolution extends the time limit in the City’s resolution for an additional forty five (45) days from April 12, 2008, for the District to adopt the resolution amending the structure of the governing board.

FISCAL IMPACT
There is no fiscal impact associated with this action.
