YUCCA VALLEY DISSOLVES REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY

YUCCA VALLEY DISSOLVES REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY

The Yucca Valley Town Council met in regular session last night, dealing with the fallout from state and court actions in which they first dissolved redevelopment agencies, RDA’s, but then allowed them to remain if a payment was made to the state. That was followed by a court ruling holding up the RDA dissolution, and disallowing the payment system. Those actions effectively disbanded the RDA, which had partially funded the Town, County, School District, College, fire, and water services, among others. Managing Editor Tami Roleff was at that meeting and files this report…
Redevelopment agencies are dead, and the state legislature has created a Frankenstein monster in its place. So said Yucca Valley Town Manager Mark Nuaimi after last night’s meeting of the Yucca Valley Town Council. Last night, the Town Council officially dissolved the Yucca Valley RDA, and named the Town as the RDA’s successor agency. As the RDA’s successor agency, the Town Council adopted a payment schedule for the former RDA’s debts and obligations, which will be sent to a County oversight committee. The Council also voted to retain the housing assets and functions of the dissolved RDA. In other business, the Council voted to award a contract to the Lew Edwards Group to develop a program to educate residents about a potential ballot measure that would allow the Town to institute a 1 percent sales tax.
