MuniServices / Avenu: Potential Changes Coming to CA's Local Government

Last month, MuniServices / Avenu published a legislative update that focused on over 50 bills, which impacted local revenue streams or administration in one way or another, that had made it to the Governor’s desk.

Many of the bills signed by Governor Brown require implementation by municipalities, including  AB 2184 (Chiu) related to identification for business licenses, AB 930 (Low) related to taxicab regulation, and SB 998 (Dodd), related to the discontinuation of residential water services. AB 2495 (Mayes) prohibits, with certain exceptions, a municipality from charging a defendant for certain costs related to a criminal violation of a local ordinance. SB 1410 (Morrell) will also place certain requirements on the CPUC for auditing the books and records of some regulated utilities.

For more information on changes that may be coming to California’s cities and counties, read the full report here.

The report linked above was compiled by Brenda Narayan, Director of Government Relations at MuniServices, an Avenu company. For 40 years, MuniServices has been a national leader in revenue enhancement and has partnered with over 225 local agencies statewide, including cities, counties and transportation districts.Contact: brenda.narayan@avenuinsights.com
