Water Conservation Information

California's first-ever emergency regulations mandating urban water conservation became effective July 29, 2014. Orland is reviewing these regulations passed by the State Water Resources Control Board and will provide updates as they are available. On April 1 the Department of Water Resources released a statement reporting on the most recent snow pack results and a press release from Governor Brown was also released. On September 3, 2014 the City Council adopted a water conservation plan. Additional information and helpful websites can be accessed from here, City Hall or Orland Free Library.

The City of Orland has prepared an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and appendices for the proposed Pilot Flying J Travel Center project per Section 15082 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines.

Orland and County Work on Tax Share

As part of annexing land from the County to the City, the two local government agencies must agree to a share of the property tax revenues. The agreement terms vary from county to county. State law requires that a county’s losses be mitigated – that is, the annexation should not cause the county to lose property tax it needs to provide services. This is sometimes called “revenue neutrality.” Image result for handshake

Tax revenues are needed by the city to provide services at the annexation project site and throughout the city. Orland estimates that its projected revenues from this annexation will be similar to the costs required to serve the project area.

Updated April 6, 2015: County Supervisors approved the draft agreement March 31 and City Council approved the agreement April 6. Most property tax from the developed annexation area would go to the County, most sales tax to the City. LAFCO will review the annexation sometime in June 2015.
