APPOINTMENT OF LARS SKARI

RECOMMENDATION

Acknowledge the appointment of Lars Skari to serve on the Ridgecrest Ranchos Recreation & Parks District for a term of office until December 2007.

DISCUSSION

The Ridgecrest Ranchos Recreation & Parks District ("District") is responsible for maintaining the entryway at Crestridge Road and Crenshaw Boulevard and the trees in the parkways along Robinview Lane, Meadowdale Lane, Middlecrest Road and Crestridge Road. The residents of the District have an annual assessment on their property tax bill to pay for this maintenance.

The District was formed prior to the City’s incorporation and is governed by an elected five-member Board of Directors. Staff recently received a letter from Victor Hansen, President of the District, informing the City of the death of Endley Collett and advising that the Board has appointed Lars Skari to serve the remainder of Mr. Collett’s term. As the supervising authority for this District, the City Council should acknowledge the appointment of Mr. Skari to the Board. Council can now acknowledge the appointment of Lars Skari to the District.

Respectfully submitted:

Carolynn Petru

Assistant City Manager/City Clerk
