Title:

New Item: Preparation of Reports for Creation of Six Law Enforcement Service Districts

 

Summary

ACTION:

Adopt Resolution Authorizing Preparation of Reports for Creation of Six Law Enforcement Service Districts in Mecklenburg County for services in the extra territorial jurisdiction (ETJ) areas of the City of Charlotte, Huntersville, Pineville, Cornelius, Mint Hill and Davidson

 

Staff Contact:                     Dena R. Diorio, County Manager

 

Presentation:                     Yes                     

 

 

BACKGROUND/JUSTIFICATION:

The County Manager has been asked to negotiate and bring back to the Board for its consideration:

 

a)                     an agreement with the City of Charlotte for the City to provide law enforcement services to the ETJ areas of the City, Davidson, and Mint Hill, and within that portion of the ETJ of the Town of Huntersville that contains the McGuire Nuclear Plant,

b)                     an agreement with Huntersville to provide law enforcement services to its modified ETJ area,

c)                     an agreement with the Town of Cornelius to provide law enforcement services to its own ETJ area, and

d)                     an agreement with the Town of Pineville to provide law enforcement services to its own ETJ area.

 

Since the costs for providing law enforcement services under each such agreement may result in different law enforcement service district tax rates being charged in different ETJ areas over time, the County Manager is recommending creation of separate law enforcement service districts for each of the six (6) ETJ areas -- City of Charlotte, Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville, Mint Hill, and Pineville -- so as to provide the necessary flexibility for the Board to set different rates in each area.  The statutory process outlined in G.S. 153A-302 requires creation of a report for each service district to be created that shows that each proposed service district will meet statutory standards.
