Page 10, Cloverdale Reveille, January 8, 1997 FIRE & CITY ager Bob Perrault, indicated th at both the City and County would transfer like amounts of $67,500 to the District for a total of $135,000 annually. Later the City announced that its share of the transfer would not be made. However, the City made the first year transfer, fi- nally agreed to the second year transfer and intends to comply with the financing arrangement for this fiscal year. According to Sink the City Council will be meeting Jan. 22 and he hopes to have the issue resolved soon thereafter. Sink has been the lone mem- ber of the City Council to speak out in favor of the transfer. Attorney Clement will be away on vacation this week and next which will delay further discussions. Meanwhile, LAFCO has ad- vised the City, in a letter from Steven Sharpe, Assistant Exec- utive Officer, that the Agency hasbeen made aware of the City's reconsidering its funding con- tribution to the district, and as a result the District's ability to provide fire protection services may be affected. The letter, written by Steven Sharpe, Assistant Executive Of- ricer, to City Manager Bob Per- fault, states further that LAF- CO m.ust consider the adequacy of public services when review- ing proposals for annexation to the City. "In this regard, be advised that the Commission will consider the financial impact of future annexations to Clover- dale upon the Cloverdale Fire Protection District", the letter avers. The letter refers to LAFCO's deliberation which found the District fiscally feasible after review of the financial analysis of the project costs and revenues (as presented by the City). Ac- cordingly, the letter states, Dis- trict revenues were expected to be generated from City and County property taxes and as- sessments. Like amounts of property taxes were expected to be transferred from the City and County, totaling $135,000 in the first year. According to District Board Chair Janet Collins, the County has made annual adjustments in its property tax transfer to the District increasing the amount as allowed under Prop. 13. The City has not made such adjust- ments, she noted. The main issue now, accord- ing to Mayor Sink, is the time line. The District will ask, in its petition not yet filed, that the transfer be made indefinitely. The City Council has not yet indicated its position on the time question. As this issue continues to be unresolved, the District is fac- ing a crucial election Mar. 4 when voters will be asked to approve a special tax that will maintain the current level of assessment income for the District. If the measure is not approved by two thirds vote, the District will find itself without financing and therefore, could no longer pro-  vide fire protection and medical emergency services.
