TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL

FROM: DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS

DATE: SEPTEMBER 6, 2005

SUBJECT: ADDITIONAL FUNDING FOR MAINTENANCE OF TRAILS AND LANDSCPAING AT OCEAN FRONT ESTATES

RECOMMENDATIONS

  1. Adopt Resolution 2005 - _ a resolution of the City Council of the City of Rancho Palos Verdes, amending resolution 2005-53, the budget appropriation for fiscal year 2005-06, for a budget adjustment to the city’s Special District Maintenance – Subregion One.
  2. Authorize the expenditure of an additional $ 52,000 for the maintenance of trails and open space at Ocean Front Estates.

BACKGROUND/DISCUSSION

The Ocean Front Estates Development was approved by the City in 1998. As part of the approval the developer was required to provide a deposit in the amount of $750,000 to provide for the maintenance of the natural open space, landscaping, trails, and a storm drain outlet. The City currently uses funds from the deposit to fund these maintenance activities. The adopted FY 05 – 06 budget includes funding in the amount of $50,000 for trail, landscape and storm drain maintenance. The City will not be responsible for the maintenance of the open space parcels until 2008.

Based upon city inspections, discussions with our contractors, and feedback from the public the current level of maintenance needs to be increased. The attached budget adjustment will provide for this additional maintenance.

CONCLUSION

Adopting the staff recommendation will provide both funding and authorization to increase maintenance activities at Ocean Front Estates.

FISCAL IMPACT

Increased spending for these activities will exhaust the fund balance earlier than expected. The estimated fund balance on June 30, 2005 is $779,000. At the proposed increased rate of spending, monies in this fund will be exhausted by approximately 2012, after which a new funding source will be needed.

ALTERNATIVE ACTIONS

Do not increase the level of funding; keep the level of maintenance at current levels. Under such a plan the fund will be exhausted by the year 2022.
