In the Matter of a Resolution setting the two public hearing dates on proposed Ordinance No. 92.00 Creating Procedures for the Establishment, Operation, Modification, and Disestablishment of Business Improvement Areas in Klamath County.-Board of County Commissioners
Background: Businesses located and operating within some areas of the County are economically disadvantaged, are underutilized, and are unable to attract customers due to inadequate facilities, services, and activities supporting these industries; and it is of particular local benefit to allow businesses to fund business related improvements and services through the levy of fees upon the businesses that receive benefits from those improvements and services. Fees levied for the purpose of conferring benefits upon the businesses in a business improvement area shall be related to the costs of providing the improvements and services within the business improvement area and shall not be taxes for the general benefit of the County. It is the desire of the Board of County Commissioners to create a mechanism, pursuant to the County’s authority, to allow certain businesses to initiate the formation of business improvement areas for the purpose of providing enhanced improvements and services for the benefit of those businesses within the business improvement area. The attached Resolution sets the public hearing dates for June 27, 2019 @ 6:00 p.m. and July 10, 2019 @ 6:00 p.m. A draft of the proposed Ordinance is also attached.
Fiscal Impact: None at this time
