SUMMARY:

 

Receiving and filing the Report of Real Property Interests under Delegated Authority for the reporting period of July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016 will provide information to your Board of Supervisors and the public on County of Orange real property actions taken under delegated authority.

 

 

 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

 

There are four delegations of authority designated by your Board of Supervisors to the Chief Real Estate Officer, and departments such as OC Public Works, OC Dana Point Harbor and OC Parks. The Delegations are limited in scope, and substantially reduce administrative processing time, thereby allowing the County of Orange to provide better customer service when processing minor real estate transactions.

 

A report of delegated authority is required annually to keep the Board of Supervisors informed as to the inventory of real property interests that have been executed under this delegated authority. This reporting period there were a total of 589 minor real estate transactions completed between July 1, 2015, and June 30, 2016. The four delegations that are the subject of this report are as follows:

 

1. Authority to Grant Easements (acting as the County of Orange):

 

On October 5, 1993, the Board of Supervisors adopted Ordinance No. 3898, delegating authority to grant easements if the value does not exceed $25,000 and the easements are granted to a city, county, state, utility company, or other public agency with County Counsel approval, in accordance with Government Code Section 25526.6 with annual reports to be submitted to the Board of Supervisors. This delegation has no expiration.

 

During the reporting period of July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016, there were three easement deeds and one quitclaim deed executed under this delegated authority (see Attachment A).

 

2.

Authority to Accept Acquisitions of Real Property Interests (acting as OC Flood, Orange County Development Agency, OC Community Services only):

 

On June 21, 2005, your Board of Supervisors, acting as the Orange County Flood Control District, Orange County Development Agency, and OC Community Services (previously the Orange County Housing Authority), delegated authority to approve and accept acquisitions of real property interests not exceeding $50,000 in value with annual reports to be submitted to the Board of Supervisors. This delegation has no expiration.

 

During the reporting period of July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016, there were a total of six documents executed under this delegated authority consisting of four easement deeds, one grant deed and one quitclaim. (see Attachment A)

 

3. Authority to Execute Revenue Leases and Licenses (acting as the County of Orange):

 

On January 28, 2014, your Board of Supervisors adopted Resolution No. 14-014 renewing the delegated authority to execute revenue-generating leases and licenses on County real property.  Government Code Section 25537 allows Boards of Supervisors to authorize County officers to execute leases and licenses of County property that do not exceed a ten-year term and do not exceed a monthly rent of $10,000, without complying with the bid procedures specified in Government Code Sections 25526 through 25536. This delegation expires on January 28, 2019.

 

During the reporting period of July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016, there were a total of 577 documents executed under this delegated authority consisting of 22 revenue leases and/or licenses of County real property and 555 boat slip/dry storage licenses (See Attachment A).

 

4. Authority to Accept Acquisitions of Real Property Interests (acting as the County of Orange):

 

On June 2, 2015, your Board adopted Ordinance No. 15-009, delegating authority to the Chief Real Estate Officer or designee, to approve and accept for the County, acquisitions of minor interests in real property not exceeding $50,000 in value, including indemnification when necessary, in accordance with Government Code Section 25350.60 with quarterly reports to be submitted to the Board of Supervisors. This delegation expires July 9, 2019.

 

During the reporting period of July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016, there were a total of three documents approved under this delegated authority including two entry licenses and one lease. (See Attachment A).

 

The attached Attachment A summarizes the details of the above-mentioned agreements including the dates, agency/department impacted, type of property rights approved, size of property, purchase price and values where applicable.

 

Compliance with CEQA:  The subject activity is not a project as defined by California Environmental Quality Act pursuant to Section 15378(b)(5) of the California Environmental Quality Act Guidelines.
