TOWN OF TRUCKEE <br /> <br />RESOLUTION 2002 - 59 <br /> <br />RESOLUTION OF THE TOWN COUNCIL OF THE TOWN OF TRUCKEE <br />ESTABLISHING A VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTION CHECK-OFF PROGRAM <br />FOR TOWN MANAGEMENT AND EMPLOYEES <br /> <br />WHEREAS, as a general rule, communities are in a better position than State <br />government to make decisions governing local affairs, educate the citizenry as to <br />the benefits of strong local government, and advocate on behalf of cities; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, measures enacted through the legislative process, as well as by <br />statewide ballot initiatives, over the past 20 years have produced the unintended <br />consequences of destabilizing city/town finances and have weakened the ability <br />of city/town residents to govern local affairs through their elected community <br />representatives; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, several statewide commissions and study groups are preparing <br />recommendations for local government reform which may be considered by the <br />voters through the initiative process, and cities may wish to propose changes <br />proactively, as well; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, many of the "local government reform" changes proposed by others <br />which will appear on a statewide ballot are likely to further weaken constitutional <br />protections of local self-determination unless information is provided to the voters <br />using conventional campaign methods; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, Action for Better Cities was created by the Board of Directors of the <br />League of California Cities for that purpose; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, elected and appointed officials in local government have the <br />opportunity to provide leadership in Action for Better Cities through voluntary <br />financial assistance; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, monies collected by Action for Better Cities shall be limited to those <br />programs and efforts intended specifically for strengthening the position of local <br />government. <br /> <br />NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Town Council of the Town of <br />Truckee that: <br /> <br />Section One. There is hereby established the Voluntary Contribution Check-Off <br />Program of the Town of Truckee. <br /> <br /> <br />
