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.
