(#8.1) Resolution No. SA 2013-002 – Approving the Due Diligence Review on All Other Funds (Excluding the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund) of the Former San Ramon Redevelopment Agency.

The staff report was presented by Administrative Services Director Eva Phelps.  On September 25, 2012, the Agency approved the use of Burr, Pilger, Mayer, Inc. to perform the Successor Agency’s Due Diligence Review required by AB 1484.  The auditors completed their examination of the financial records of all other funds (excluding the Low and Moderate Housing Income Fund) of the former San Ramon Redevelopment Agency.  She summarized the eleven Procedures, Results, and Attachments of the Review.  The results of the Review determined that there is no unobligated balance of cash or cash equivalents available for allocation to taxing entities. 

Mbr. Perkins discussed the Assets transferred to the Successor Agency that are available to distribute to affected taxing entities (Attachment C) and the Funds retained by the Agency to satisfy the 2012-13 Recognized Obligation Payment Schedules (ROPS) obligations (Attachment D).  Ms. Phelps stated that the Agency has less money than it needs to fulfill its obligations.  The Agency continues to get tax increment funds and will build reserves to have sufficient funding for future debt.  Mbr. Livingstone asked who paid for the accounting.  Ms. Phelps stated that the auditor’s $25,000 fee was paid out of the Agency’s administrative cost allowance.

Ms. Phelps outlined the next step in the process which is to submit the Review to the Oversight Board for approval.    There were no public requests to address this item. 

Mbr. Perkins asked if the state has responded to the Agency’s Due Diligence Review of the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund of the Former San Ramon Redevelopment Agency.  Ms. Phelps stated that the Review was approved.  She noted that the state had several questions regarding the 2006 tax allocation bond proceeds.

Mbr. Perkins’ motion to adopt Resolution No. SA 2013-002 was seconded by Vice Chair Hudson and passed 5-0.

PUBLIC COMMENT

Roz Rogoff, resident, stated that the process is very confusing and asked where the Mudd’s property fits into the process.  She questioned who is making the decision regarding the steps which will govern the sale of the property and the final approval of the sale.  The Oversight Board represents the taxing agencies.  The Board’s function is to secure the maximum proceeds from the sale of Redevelopment Agency assets.  Mbr. Perkins stated that he expects that the state will have a say in the decisions of the Successor Agency and the Oversight Board.
