SUMMARY:

 

This annual Report of Minor Real Property Interests obtained under Delegated Authority details how authority delegated by the Board of Supervisors was used to facilitate smaller real estate transactions for efficiency in government.

 

 


 

 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

 

The Board of Supervisors (Board) delegated authority to execute specific types of real estate agreements to the Chief Real Estate Officer and OC Public Works Director. These delegations are limited in scope and substantially reduce administrative processing time, thereby allowing the County of Orange (County) and the Orange County Flood Control District (OCFCD) to provide enhanced customer service when processing minor real estate transactions.

 

A report on specific delegations of authority is required annually to keep the Board informed as to the number and types of real property interests that have been executed under delegated authority. During the reporting period of July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023, there were a total of 87 minor real estate transactions completed.

 

Attachment A summarizes the details of the executed agreements including the dates, agency/department benefiting, type of property rights approved, size of property, purchase price and values, where applicable. The delegations of authority that are the subject of this report are documented in Attachments B through H. The report and delegations are summarized below.

 

On October 5, 1993, the Board 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.
