(#8.1) Resolution No. SA 2013-009 – Authorizing the Agency Chair to Execute an Agreement with the City of San Ramon to Ratify, Validate and Reenter the Cooperation Agreement Between the City of San Ramon and the Former San Ramon Redevelopment Agency Entered into on December 8, 1992.

Interim City Attorney Bob Saxe provided the report.  On December 8, 1992, the City and the Redevelopment Agency entered into a Cooperation Agreement whereby the City agreed to assist the Agency in performing redevelopment functions and the Agency repaid the City for all costs incurred by the City for services under the Agreement.  The legislation adopted in 2011-2012 to dissolve redevelopment agencies included a provision which invalidated agreements entered into between a city and a redevelopment agency created by that city.  The applicable provision (Health & Safety Code section 34178) made certain exemptions based on subject matter.  It authorized a city to reenter with the successor agency any agreement with the former redevelopment agency which may have been invalidated by Health & Safety Code section 34178.  Staff had a ‘meet and confer’ meeting with the State Department of Finance (DOF) in conjunction with the last Recognized Obligation Payment Schedule (ROPS).  At that time, the DOF had not approved the ROPS.    The DOF suggested that the City reenter the 1992 Cooperative Agreement with the Successor Agency, City Council, and Oversight Board.  Mbr. Perkins asked if the Agreement will obligate the City for any additional costs which will not be reimbursed.  Mr. Saxe responded that it does provide any additional new obligations.

Vice Chair Hudson’s motion to adopt Resolution No. SA 2013-009 was seconded by Mbr. Livingstone and passed 5-0.
