AGENDA BILL 2010-01-11E

Staff report of October 16, 2009
Amended Intergovernmental Agreement with WLWSD
The City currently earns about $1,800 per year for administrating, collecting, and forwarding these impact fees to the WLWSD. This would increase to $7,200 per year.
Policy Questions for Council Consideration:
Does the Council wish to maintain the same IGA provisions with the West Linn-Wilsonville School District (WLWSD) as proposed by the Lake Oswego School District (LOSD)?
Given LOSD’s plans to start charging an impact fee on new development within their school boundaries allowing the City to retain an administrative fee of 4% and given that state law has recently changed to allow cities to retain 4 percent, the proposed IGA amendment maintains the same percentage with our current WLWSD arrangement.
Staff recommends the Council approve the amendment to the IGA with the WLWSD and authorize the City Manager to sign on it on behalf of the City.
