On September 19, 2017, the Tiburon Town Council ("The Council") considered a Preliminary Engineer's Report ("September 19 Report") for the proposed Hawthorne Utility Undergrounding District ("The District"). After receiving the staff report on the matter, and hearing public comment, the Council directed Vice Mayor O'Donnell to work with staff, the Assessment Engineer and others, to review the factors outlined in the September 19 Report in order to address concerns raised by the public and the Council at the September 19th meeting.
An updated Preliminary Engineer's Report ("Updated Report") is now complete and will be considered by the Council at their regular meeting scheduled for November 15, 2017. The Updated Report contains certain revisions from the September 19 Report including:
- A revised assessment methodology
- A proposed contribution (including General Benefit) from the Town of Tiburon towards the project of $500,000.
- Discounting the assessments on tax exempt properties in the District by 75%.
These revisions result in the proposed individual assessments for each property in the District that are different from those included in the September 19 Report.
The Updated Report is available here. The Updated Report includes the proposed individual assessments for each property in the District. In addition to the Updated Report, you will also find other useful information regarding this project including: A comparison of proposed individual property assessments between the September 19 Report and the Updated Report, and an estimate of the annual payment on your tax bill based on your property's proposed assessment and varying interest rates. If you do not have access to the internet, or have trouble viewing this information online, you can receive a hard copy of any of the available information at Tiburon Town Hall, which is located at 1505 Tiburon Boulevard.
This notice is being published to inform you the Council will be continuing its consideration of the proposed district, including review of the Updated Report, on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 7:30 P.M., at Town Hall, 1505 Tiburon Boulevard, Tiburon, California. At this meeting, the Council will receive a staff report on the matter, and hear any further public comment before directing staff on how to proceed.
