Both the City of Lakeport and the County of Lake are pleased to announce that the respective negotiation teams have developed a draft Sales Tax Agreement for both the City Council and Board of Supervisors to jointly consider as it relates to the South Lakeport Annexation Project. The South Lakeport Annexation Project includes an area of approximately 137 acres adjacent to South Main Street and Soda Bay Road.
Negotiations were undertaken in good faith, and focused heavily on two priorities: 1) sustainably delivering the best possible public services and governance to residents, businesses and property owners in the project area; and 2) ensuring efficient use of public funds.
Residents and businesses can expect improved fire protection, access to public water, emergency resiliency through installation of fire hydrants and municipal law enforcement. Additional background information related to the annexation may be accessed at www.lakeportannexation.org.
Both the County of Lake and the City of Lakeport look forward to hosting a joint hybrid meeting on January 11, 2022 at 5:30 p.m. at Lakeport City Hall Council Chambers, located at 225 Park Street, Lakeport, CA.
We encourage community members to attend and participate in this discussion involving this important next step as it relates to the South Lakeport Annexation project. The proposed draft Sales Tax Agreement will be available as part of the agenda packet for the January 11, 2022 meeting.
