SUMMARY: Resolution 2016-18 Exhibit 2-A updates Rule 60, Fees and Charges Table, to reflect actual expenses incurred by the District to process Requests from Confirmation of Exemptions. The Fees and Charges are intended to have a positive correlation to the actual time, effort, and cost of providing the services and taking the actions set forth in the Fees and Charges Table. A marked up version of the proposed table is found as Exhibit 2-B.

 

Ordinance No. 160 and recent administrative changes to the Confirmation of Exemption process has reduced staff time and streamlined the process to complete these applications. Staff has reviewed the hourly rate charged for activities related to Requests for Confirmation of Exemption. Based on an analysis of time spent by staff on these requests and the current hourly reimbursement rates, the fee has been reduced from $1,000 to $600. The rate change is reflected on line 10 of the Fees and Charges Table.

 

RECOMMENDATION: District staff recommends that the Board adopt Resolution 2016-18, A Resolution of the Board of Directors of the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District Amending Rule 60, Fees and Charges Table. The Administrative Committee considered this matter on ____________ and recommended _________. This item will be approved if adopted along with the Consent Calendar.

 

BACKGROUND: Ordinance No. 120, adopted March 21, 2005, allows changes to the Fees and Charges Table by resolution rather than by ordinance. The Fees and Charges Table was last updated on July 21, 2014 by adoption of Resolution 2014-14.
