CA SB 1291

Title: Veterans: memorial districts.
Author: Shannon L. Grove

SB 1291, as amended, Grove. Veterans: memorial districts. Existing law allows memorial districts to be established and maintained for the purposes of providing and maintaining memorial halls, assembly halls, buildings, or meeting places, together with suitable indoor and outdoor park and recreation facilities, primarily for the use of veterans and veterans’ organizations. To this end, existing law allows a memorial district to levy special taxes and to incur bonded indebtedness. Existing law requires the secretary of a memorial district to annually prepare a financial report of all the district’s assets, liabilities, receipts, disbursements, and obligations. Existing law requires the county auditor to draw warrants against the memorial district fund and against the memorial district bond fund in payment of the district’s law claims. Existing law allows the county treasurer to pay moneys out of the district’s several funds only upon warrants drawn by the county auditor.This bill would, notwithstanding existing law, authorize the Clovis Veterans Memorial District in the County of Fresno to withdraw its funds from the control of the county treasurer. If it does so, the bill would require the board of directors of the Clovis Veterans Memorial District to adopt a resolution that includes, among other things, a procedure for the appointment of a memorial district treasurer. The bill would require the board and the board of supervisors of the principal county to determine a mutually acceptable date for the withdrawal of the memorial district’s funds from the county treasury that does not exceed 15 months from the date on which the board adopts its resolution. The bill would require the memorial district treasurer to make annual or more frequent written reports to the board, as the board determines, regarding the receipts, disbursements, and balances in the accounts controlled by the memorial district treasurer.This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the Clovis Veterans Memorial District in the County of Fresno.

May 1 set for first hearing canceled at the request of author.
