Turlock City Council Meeting Agenda 08-09-11

The Turlock City Council will hear staff presentations and requests regarding two State of California issues; an appeal of a State demanded payment to continue the Redevelopment Agency (RDA) and to oppose State Senate redistricting boundaries that would put the City of Turlock into the Foothill District instead of the Merced District (where the City of Turlock would desire to be).

City Staff’s request from the Turlock City Council is to authorize the appeal of the Department of Finance Calculation of the Turlock Redevelopment Agency Community Remittance required pursuant to AB X1 27, to allow for continued existence of the Turlock Redevelopment Agency. The “ransom” payment, as many call it, to continue Turlock’s RDA has been calculated to total about a $3 million payment to the State this year.
 
City Staff will request to oppose the boundaries proposed by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission for State Senate District 8 (“Foothill”) which includes the City of Turlock, and recommending that the City of Turlock be included within the proposed boundaries of State Senate District 12 (“Merced”).
 
The Turlock City Council will also hear a report on the Turlock Certified Farmers’ Market.
