SUMMARY: On November 3, 2009, the District is scheduled to conduct an election for directors in voter divisions 1 and 2. The Monterey County Elections Department requires that a resolution calling for the November 3 election be adopted by the Board of Directors no later than July 1, 2009.

 

The Elections Department has estimated that the cost to conduct the election could be $75,408, depending on the actual number of entities that decide to consolidate ballot measures for the November 3, 2009 election date. The Board will be asked to authorize funding for the election at the June 15, 2009 meeting.

 

RECOMMENDATION: The Board of Directors adopt the resolution attached as Exhibit 4-A, calling for an election in voter divisions 1 and 2 on November 3, 2009.

 

BACKGROUND: An election in voter divisions 1 and 2 was last conducted in November 2005. The four-year term of directors elected in 2005 expires at the end of 2009.

 

IMPACT ON STAFF/RESOURCES: An amount necessary to cover the cost of this District election will be included in the Fiscal Year 2009-10 proposed budget, which is scheduled to be reviewed in a Board Special Meeting/Workshop on May 28, 2009.
