Report 2018-133: Fallen Leaf Lake Community Services District: Its Billing Practices and Small Electorate Jeopardize Its Ability to Provide Services (Release Date: July 2019)

Recommendation for Legislative Action

To ensure that the district has an electorate of sufficient size from which it can elect members to its board, the Legislature should enact legislation to allow landowners and holders of Forest Service permits within the district, along with otherwise domiciled registered voters in the district, to vote on district matters and serve on the board.

Description of Legislative Action

SB 1180 (Dahle) would have provided that voters who are resident registered voters of the district, and voters who are not residents but either own a real property interest in the district or have been designated by the owner of a real property interest to cast the vote for that property, may vote in a district election. The bill would have required the designations of voters and authority of legal representatives to be filed with the El Dorado County elections official (county official) and the district secretary and maintained with the list of qualified voters of the district. The bill also would have authorized a voter who is not a resident of the district but owns a real property interest in the district to designate only one voter to vote on their behalf, regardless of the number of parcels in the district owned by the nonresident voter, and would have prohibited a parcel from simultaneously having a designated voter and a resident voter or voters. This bill died in the Senate.
