City of Escondido

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Joyce Masterson, 760-839-4621

The City of Escondido, along with other redevelopment agencies throughout San Diego County, will be forced to turn over $8.5 million as required payment resulting from the State’s decision to raid $2.05 billion in local redevelopment funds as part of the 2009-10 State Budget. The payments will be made in accordance with a ruling by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Lloyd Connelly last week which instructed local redevelopment agencies to abide by the provisions of ABX4-26 passed last year as part of the state budget.

City Manager Clay Phillips criticized the ruling saying, “We planned to use our redevelopment monies to fund much needed projects in Escondido that would have created jobs, improved our city, and stimulated our local economy. This is yet another example of the State shifting the burden to cities instead of taking responsibility for their own obligations.”
