WHEREAS, on October 5, 2016, the City Council adopted Council File RES PH 16-287 which ratified the assessments roll for 2016 services in the 2016 Right-of-Way Maintenance Program and 2016 Above-Standard Lighting Operation and Maintenance Program; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council received all written objections from property owners, either before the hearing or at the hearing, and directed the city clerk to make a record thereof and remove those properties from the assessment roll (“remaining properties”) for separate consideration; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council directed that the remaining properties be laid over from the October 5, 2016 public hearing for separate hearings to consider individual objections, and to return to the Council on November 2, 2016; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council ratified the assessments roll for those parcels for which property owners did not object, and ratified the balance of the assessment roll; and

 

WHEREAS, Council File RES PH 16-287 also directed the Legislative Hearing Officer to receive written and oral submissions regarding the remaining properties from the affected property owners, city officials, and other witnesses regarding any non-constitutional objections to the proposed assessment; and

 

WHEREAS, the Legislative Hearing Officer has the authority to make factual determinations regarding the non-constitutional objections for each proposed assessment and consult with the City Attorney to determine whether an objection is a constitutional objection; and

 

WHEREAS, on October 14, 2016, the Legislative Hearing Officer conducted a hearing regarding the appeal for Rachel Xiong at 756 VAN BUREN AVENUE and appellant and/or her representative was granted the opportunity to present oral or written testimony and evidence to support her objections to the proposed assessment; and

 

WHEREAS, oral testimony and documentation regarding the assessment was withheld by City staff because appellant and/or her representative was not in attendance; and

 

WHEREAS, the Legislative Hearing Officer made the following determination(s) and recommendation:

 

                     Appellant did not provide any written, oral testimony or material evidence regarding non-constitutional objections to support a reduction or deletion of the assessment;
