SUMMARY DISCUSSION

Approval of this report, adoption of the Ordinance of Intention, holding of the public hearings, and adoption of the Final Ordinance by Council, with

approval by the Mayor, is required under Sections 6.95 to 6.127 of the Los Angeles Administrative Code to levy the assessments needed to operate the Los Angeles City Street Lighting Maintenance Assessment District (LACLD) for 2019/20. The 44,436,000 in annual assessments is the primary source of revenue for the Bureau of Street Lighting's operating budget and other street lighting expenses. The assessments are collected through the County Property Tax Bills, and therefore the assessments must be confirmed by the Council by July 31,2019 to ensure that the information can be included on the tax bills.
Tagged Passions:ordinance, council, streets, budget, taxes, Taxes, streetscape, property, hearing, traffic, and property tax

In summary, the total estimated cost of LACLD street lighting operations for 2019/20 is 67,983,303 of which 44,436,000 is proposed to be assessed to

benefiting properties, including City-owned properties, in accordance with established Council policy. The remaining 23,547,303 ( 388,069 carry over from previous fiscal year) in costs are funded from other sources of revenue, including miscellaneous receipts, reimbursements from other agencies, and collections for damage claims, permits fees, and maintenance agreement receipts. An appropriation of 1,855,000 from the Water Electricity Fund is budgeted for the public property street lighting maintenance assessments.

SINCE INDIVIDUAL MAINTENANCE ASSESSMENTS, AND THE COMPOSITION OF THE DISTRICT WILL REMAIN SUBSTANTIALL Y THE SAME AS IN 2018/19, THEY ARE EXEMPT FROM

THE PROCEDURES AND APPROVAL PROCESS (SECTION 4 OF PROPOSITION 218) AS ALLOWED IN SECTION 5 OF PROPOSITION 218. NO ASSESSMENTS WILL BE INCREASED AND NO PROPERTIES WILL BE ADDED TO THIS DISTRICT.

OTHER SIGNIFICANT ITEMS

REVIEW OF ASSESSMENT FUND REVENUES -In fiscal year 2019-20 the Bureau will be reviewing the assessment fund to ensure that all assessments are

accurate and being properly collected.

CITYWIDE ASSESSMENT BALLOT - In fiscal year 2016-2017, the Bureau worked with a consultant to establish a detailed plan for a Citywide LACLD ballot

proceeding. The consultant concluded its study and recommendation in fiscal year 2017-18 to move forward with the LACLD ballot. The CAO's Needs Analysis Report contract was awarded in 2018-19. The Bureau will be reporting the recommendation to the Council and Mayor to proceed in fiscal year 2019-2020.
Tagged Passions:council, contract, election, and services

WIRE THEFT - The City of Los Angeles has over 220,000 streetlights that are powered through underground conduit with copper wires. The use of high

strength, composite, lockable pullboxes along with increased awareness by the LAPD and the public have been instrumental in reducing copper wire theft. This year the Bureau has seen an increase in power theft due to the homeless population over the past few years.
Tagged Passions:Underground Utility cable and homeless

REMOTE MONITORING CONTROLS ON STREET LIGHTING POLES - The Bureau will continue to install remote monitoring controls on street lighting fixtures as

well as monitor energy use and the status of each light. The streetlights are able to identify themselves to the network instantly using mobile technology embedded into each fixture. This smart plug-and-play approach not only reduces the cost of installing each fixture, it reduces the time of commissioning and eliminates on-site commissioning completely. Additionally, the entire system will be securely controlled and managed remotely through a web browser. We envision this will provide infrastructure for future Smart City applications.

VISION ZERO - Vision Zero Los Angeles is premised on the fundamental principle that loss of life by traffic collision is unacceptable. The goal of

Vision Zero is to target all traffic fatalities with an emphasis on the most vulnerable users of our streets; people who walk and bicycle. Our Bureau has developed a list of prioritized lighting projects to improve safety on the High Injury Network which identifies streets with a high concentration of traffic collisions that result in severe injuries and deaths. We will continue to incorporate strategies into intersections and crosswalks at mid-blocks to improve safety.

POLE PAINTING - The Bureau repaints deteriorated metal found on our street lighting poles. Pole painting is an essential part of the maintenance of

street lighting poles. Street lighting poles should be painted every 7 to 10 years. The street lighting pole begins to deteriorate if it is not painted on a regular cycle. This deterioration leads to higher painting costs. Without proper painting and maintenance, the street lighting pole is in danger of corroding to the point that it can fall down. This is a liability for the City and is an important public safety issue.

SMART CITY - The Bureau has been at the forefront of the Smart City movement with our conversion to LED-lighting years ago. As technology advances,

we are working to develop a Smart City network and develop a plan to incorporate new technologies into our Street Lighting infrastructure. The Smart City endeavors help to enhance connections that provide the backbone of transmission of data regarding the streetlights, collect helpful data through various sensors (i.e. air quality, audio, motion, etc.) attached to our streetlights, attach EV Charging stations, and pilot emergency streetlights.

FUSE FELLOW - STRATEGIC PLAN - In FY 2019-20 the bureau will have a FUSE Fellow to assist in the preparation of a Strategic Plan for the Bureau. FUSE

is a national non-profit that partners with local governments to help urban communities thrive. A Strategic Plan will help to craft new policy, roll out new public services, and improve existing programs within the Bureau. The Fellow will also conduct community outreach and engagement to better know the needs of our constituents, and obtain best practices from other cities.

PROPOSITION 218

Shortly after approval of Proposition 218 on November 5, 1996, we conferred with experts in assessments in the private sector, in other cities, and

within the City, including the City Attorney, CAO, CLA, City Clerk and others to ascertain and deal with the impacts on assessments, particularly for this District. Our conclusions, concurred in by the City Attorney, are:
Tagged Passions:legal

1. This assessment district can be renewed, a year at a time, and is exempt from the voting, mailed notices and other requirements of Proposition

218, Section 4, as long as the assessments and the composition of the District are not increased or added to from the previous year.
Tagged Passions:voting

2. When an increase becomes necessary, a ballot and notice must be mailed to all property owners in the District; if a weighted majority of the votes

received are against the increased assessment, it cannot be levied.

Tagged Passions:council, streets, streetscape, and traffic

The assessments to about 510,000 individual properties (about 2/3 of the City) will remain the same as in 2018/19. Properties without streetlights

(about 1/3 of the City) are not assessed. A typical R-1 property with a 50-foot frontage which was assessed 53.07 in 2018/19 will be assessed the same amount in 2019/20.

This estimate has been prepared consistent with Council Policy in Administrative Code Sections 6.95-6.127, and on the basis of maintaining the Street

Lighting Maintenance Assessment Fund in a solvent condition throughout the next fiscal year. The major portion of the revenue to this Fund is planned to be secured from the annual assessment to benefiting properties, which comprise the LACLD. The Bureau of Street Lighting (BSL) budget is also financed from the SLMAF. Therefore, we depend on reimbursement of design fees and other charges to the SLMAF from other funds and agencies.

PROCEDURES FOR CONFIRMING THE ASSESSMENTS

Tagged Passions:procedure

Upon approval of this report and adoption of the Ordinance of Intention by the Council, dates will be set for hearing appeals, one hearing at the

Board of Public Works, and then one hearing at the Council. After consideration of the appeals, Council may vote to confirm the assessments, and to adopt a Final Ordinance ordering the maintenance work to be done and the assessments to be levied. This must be completed in time to submit the necessary information to the County Tax Collector for inclusion with the Property Tax Bills, to avoid a costly, separate City billing preparation, mailing and collection. The Council must confirm the assessments by July 31, 2019 to be included in the County Property Tax Bills.

Tagged Passions:ordinance

An Ordinance pursuant to the provisions of Section 6.95 - 6.127 of the Los Angeles Administrative Code, Sections 53753.5 of the California Government

Code, and Proposition 218 (Articles XIII C and XIII D of the California Constitution) declaring the intention of the Council . of the City of Los Angeles to order the necessary street lighting systems to be operated, maintained and repaired, including furnishing electric energy, for a period of one year ending June 30, 2020 for the lighting of that certain district designated as the LOS ANGELES CITY STREET LIGHTING MAINTENANCE ASSESSMENT DISTRICT ( MASTER DISTRICT ) in the City of Los Angeles. The MASTER DISTRICT was created for administrative convenience and is comprised of individual COMPONENT DISTRICTS created prior to the effective date of Proposition 218 to fund street lighting related services and/or activities.
Tagged Passions:ordinance, council, streets, services, electric, streetscape, energy, and traffic

The boundaries of the COMPONENT DISTRICTS and the individual assessments for each property within the COMPONENT DISTRICTS remain unchanged from the

assessment year preceding the effective date of Proposition 218. No assessments will increase and no new properties will be added to the involved COMPONENT DISTRICTS. The city may from time to time delete all or a portion of COMPONENT DISTRICT from the MASTER DISTRICT but only if such change will not increase any individual COMPONENT DISTRICT assessment amounts beyond the last pre- Proposition 218 assessment amount. Such COMPONENT DISTRICTS are therefore exempt under section 5 of Proposition 218 from the procedures and approval process set forth in section 4 of Proposition 218.
