Mello-Roos Community Facilities Act; General Provisions   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

This chapter applies to all local agencies insofar as those entities have the power to install or contribute revenue for any of the facilities or provide or contribute revenue for any of the services authorized under this chapter. This chapter authorizes local agencies to create community facilities districts pursuant to this chapter within their territorial limits. A local agency may initiate proceedings pursuant to Section 53318 to include territory proposed for annexation to the local agency within a community facilities district if a petition or resolution of application for the annexation of the territory to the local agency has been accepted for filing and a certificate of filing has been issued by the executive officer of the local agency formation commission at the time the proceedings to create the district are initiated. Those proceedings may be completed only if the annexation of the territory to the local agency is completed. The officers of local agencies who have similar powers and duties, as determined by the legislative body of the local agency, as the municipal officers referred to in this chapter shall have the powers and duties given by this chapter to the municipal officials. Where no similar officer exists, the legislative body of the local agency shall, by resolution, appoint a person or designate an officer to perform the duties under this chapter. Any local agency that has no authority to enact an ordinance under other laws may, for purposes of this chapter, enact an ordinance in substantially the same manner as provided for the enactment of a city ordinance in Chapter 2 (commencing with Section36900) of Part 2 of Division 3 of Title 4.
