SUBJECT:
RESOLUTION CONFIRMING THE ENGINEER’S ANNUAL LEVY REPORT FOR CHINO HILLS LOS SERRANOS LIGHTING MAINTENANCE DISTRICT
 
RECOMMENDATION:
Adopt a resolution entitled:  A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHINO HILLS, ACTING IN ITS CAPACITY AS THE GOVERNING BODY OF THE CHINO HILLS LOS SERRANOS LIGHTING MAINTENANCE DISTRICT, TO CONFIRM THE ANNUAL ASSESSMENTS AND ORDER THE LEVY AND COLLECTION OF ASSESSMENTS FOR THE CHINO HILLS LOS SERRANOS LIGHTING MAINTENANCE DISTRICT, PURSUANT TO PROVISIONS OF THE LANDSCAPING AND LIGHTING ACT OF 1972 (STREETS AND HIGHWAYS CODE, SECTION 22500 ET SEQ.).
BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS:
Chino Hills Los Serranos Lighting Maintenance District (District) was formed to provide street lighting to the neighborhood area known as Los Serranos.  The street lighting services include, but are not limited to, the maintenance and operations costs of lighting fixtures and related appurtenant facilities associated with the public street lighting within the District as well as the costs of electrical energy.
 
Each fiscal year, the City reviews the phasing of construction within the Los Serranos District.  Each of the phases is considered assessable in the fiscal year after which Council has awarded the construction contract for installation of the streetlights.  In FY 2017/18, contracts were awarded for improvements on Country Club Drive, Williams Avenue, Esther Street, Yorba Avenue, and Los Serranos Boulevard. Therefore, parcels that directly benefit from these improvements are being re-designated as Phase Six in FY 2018/19.  
 
Contracts were also awarded for improvements on Fairway Boulevard, Mariposa Avenue, Carmelita Avenue, Yorba Avenue, Murray Avenue, Esther Street, Ethel Street, Avery Street, Pheasant Street, and Quail Street.  Parcels that directly benefit from these improvements are being re-designated as Phase Seven in FY 2018/19.

Annually, the City Council must hold a public hearing to review the costs of operation for lighting as presented in the Engineer’s Annual Levy Report, and to set the annual assessment rates within the District.  On February 13, 2018, the City Council adopted Resolution No. 2018R-003 ordering the Engineer’s Annual Levy Report for fiscal year 2018/19.  On May 22, 2018, the City Council set June 12, 2018, as the date for the Public Hearing. 
 
The Engineer’s Annual Levy Report for FY 2018/19, with proposed assessments and the District map, has been on file with the City Clerk’s office since May 22, 2018.
ENVIRONMENTAL (CEQA) REVIEW:
The proposed project is categorically exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to Title 14 California Code of Regulations § 15301 (h) as a Class 1 categorical exemption (Existing Facilities).  The project involves maintenance of existing lighting and is not anticipated to have any significant impacts with regard to traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality.
FISCAL IMPACT:
The proposed Fiscal Year 2018/19 budget for the District is $26,315 and the proposed assessments for Fiscal Year 2018/19 are projected to generate $40,412.  The remaining $14,097 is reserve fund contribution.
