To RDA Successor Agencies Within San Bernardino County:
In accordance with Senate Bill No. 107 (SB107), Health and Safety Code Section 34179(j), the 26 oversight boards currently in place in San Bernardino County (county) will consolidate into one Countywide oversight board commencing on and after July 1, 2018. The County Auditor-Controller is responsible for staffing the consolidated oversight board but has the option of delegating the responsibility to another County entity or to a city within the County after consulting with the Department of Finance (DOF).
After careful consideration, I have decided to have the San Bernardino County Community Development and Housing Agency (CDHA) implement and staff the consolidated oversight board under the oversight of the Auditor-Controller/ Treasurer/ Tax Collector’s Office (ATC). Utilizing the resources of both CDHA and ATC will allow us to implement the consolidated oversight board changes more efficiently prior to the July 1, 2018, effective date so you do not experience any disruptions on actions that require oversight board approval.
Pursuant to SB 107, Health and Safety Code Section 34179(j), the oversight board is appointed as follows:
- One member is appointed by the County Board of Supervisors.
- One member may be appointed by the city selection committee established pursuant to Government Code Section 50270.
- One member may be appointed by the independent special district selection committee established pursuant to Government Code Section 56332 for the types of special districts that are eligible to receive property tax revenues pursuant to Section 34188.
- One member may be appointed by the County Superintendent of Education to represent schools if the superintendent is elected. If the County Superintendent of Education is appointed, then the appointment made pursuant to this paragraph shall be made by the County Board of Education.
- One member may be appointed by the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges to represent community college districts in the County.
- One member of the public may be appointed by the County Board of Supervisors.
- One member may be appointed by the recognized employee organization representing the largest number of successor agency employees in the County.
The CDHA will be working with appointing entities to identify the consolidated oversight board members and alternates in a timely manner. The governor may appoint individuals to fill any oversight board member position that has not been filled by July 15, 2018, or any member position that remains vacant for more than 60 days.
