Parks and recreation: Lower Los Angeles River Recreation and Park District: Lower San Gabriel River Recreation and Park District: establishment: board of directors.

Abstract

(1) Existing law authorizes the establishment of the Lower Los Angeles River Recreation and Park District by petition or resolution submitted to the Los Angeles County Local Agency Formation Commission before January 1, 2021. Existing law authorizes 10 specified city councils to each appoint one member, and the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to appoint 2 members, to serve at the pleasure of the appointing entity on the initial board of directors of the district. Existing law authorizes the city councils of the Cities of Commerce, Downey, Montebello, and Pico Rivera to jointly appoint one member to serve a 2-year term on the initial board of directors of the district. This bill would authorize the city councils of the Cities of Commerce, Downey, Montebello, and Pico Rivera to each appoint one member to serve at the pleasure of the appointing city council on the initial board of directors of the district, rather than to jointly appoint one member to serve a 2-year term. The bill would authorize the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to appoint 3 members, rather than 2 members, to serve on the initial board of directors of the district. (2) Existing law authorizes the establishment of the Lower San Gabriel River Recreation and Park District by petition or resolution submitted to the Los Angeles County Local Agency Formation Commission before January 1, 2020. Existing law authorizes specified city councils, including the city council of the City of Montebello, and the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to appoint members to serve on the initial board of directors of the district. Under existing law, a violation of any rule, regulation, or ordinance adopted by the board of directors of a recreation and park district is a crime. This bill would extend the deadline to submit the petition or resolution establishing the district from January 1, 2020, to January 1, 2023. The bill would remove the authorization for the city council of the City of Montebello to appoint a member to the district's initial board of directors and would authorize the Governor to appoint one public member to the initial board of directors. The bill would also make various nonsubstantive changes. Because a violation of a rule, regulation, or ordinance adopted by the board of directors of the district would be a crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program by extending the deadline by which the district may be established. (3) This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the Lower Los Angeles River Recreation and Park District and the Lower San Gabriel River Recreation and Park District. (4) The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
