KITTITAS COUNTY <br /> DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS <br /> FLOOD CONTROL ZONE DISTRICT ADVISORY COMMITTEE <br /> PRESENTATION OF THE 6-YEAR CAPITAL PLAN <br /> TO THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS <br /> SPECIAL SESSION STAFF REPORT <br /> SPECIAL SESSION DATE: September 16, 2019 <br /> TOPIC: Presentation of Flood Control Zone District's Proposed Six Year Capital Plan, as <br /> Recommended by the Flood Control Zone District Advisory Committee <br /> LEAD STAFF: <br /> Arden Thomas <br /> RECOMMENDATION: <br /> Set an appropriate levy rate supporting ongoing Flood Control Zone District activities in 2020 <br /> and implementing the proposed Six Year Capital Facility Plan. <br /> BRIEFING SUMMARY: <br /> • The Kittitas County Flood Control Zone District Advisory Committee was established <br /> pursuant to Resolution 2017-183. <br /> • Flood Control Zone District Advisory Committee was tasked with prioritization an <br /> annual capital facility plan and work program. <br /> • The Flood Control Zone District has prioritized potential capital projects and presents the <br /> attached capital plan for the Board of County Commissioner's Consideration. <br /> • If the current levy rate of$0.07 per$1,000 of assessed value is maintained, <br /> implementation of the proposed capital plan creates annual deficits and the District will <br /> run out of funding in 2022—in the absence of additional levy rate. <br /> BACKGROUND: <br /> Following establishment of the countywide Flood Control Zone District, the Board of County <br /> Commissioners (BOCC)passed Resolution 2017-183, establishing a Flood Control Zone District <br /> Advisory Committee composed of district rate payers, to prioritize an annual capital facility plan <br /> and work program. This Advisory Committee has been meeting since August 21, 2018. Over the <br /> past year, the advisory committee has reviewed and ranked projects identified through flood <br /> assessment and planning documents and now proposes the attached Six Year Capital Plan. <br /> DISCUSSION: <br /> The proposed 6-Year Capital Plan identifies $14.5 million in work, which could be supported by <br /> $3.7 million in local funds generated through the FCZD levee and ideally matched by$10.8 <br /> million in funding through grant and partner funding. Given the success of the District to date in <br /> leveraging funding, this level of non-local support seems a realistic goal. <br />
