RESOLUTION NO. 803
A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF UNIVERSITY PLACE APPROVING AN INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT WITH THE PIERCE COUNTY FLOOD CONTROL ZONE DISTRICT
WHEREAS, State law authorizes counties to create a countywide flood control zone district for the purpose of undertaking, operating, or maintaining flood control projects or storm water control projects, among other powers, including within cities in the county; and
WHEREAS, in 2010, Pierce County created a Flood Control Zone District (FCZD) which is governed by a board, and includes an advisory committee that includes representing the cities and junior taxing districts. The Board assessed a property tax throughout the District, and established an Opportunity Fund set-aside to fund flood control projects in cities outside the areas affected by the Puyallup, Carbon- White and Nisqually rivers; and
WHEREAS, the FCZD board has designated 10 percent of the FCZD levy proceeds for the Opportunity Fund, which is made available to jurisdictions throughout the FCZD on a proportional basis, based on assessed valuation. The City’s proportional share is approximately $30,000 per year. The City’s current proportional balance is $84,414; and
WHEREAS, once the City has entered into the attached Interlocal Agreement for Opportunity Fund projects, the City may submit a Notice of Intent to Request Funds to indicate how it intends to use its Opportunity Fund allocation on an annual basis;
