Pursuant to AB x1 26, as modified by the Supreme Court, redevelopment agencies are dissolved as of February, 2012 and their affairs are to be wound down by the City as the “successor agency”. The legislation defines which obligations are eligible to continue being paid with former tax increment funds following the dissolution of the agency. Obligations that are to be honored by the successor agency going forward (enforceable obligations) include bond or loan payments, payments required by the federal government, judgments or settlements, legally binding contracts (including those necessary for operation of the agency, e.g. rent), and others. The Redevelopment Agency is required to prepare an Recognized Obligations Payment Schedule (ROPS) listing all of the obligations identified by the Agency as enforceable obligations that would continue to be paid.

The most recent ROPS and related information can be viewed below.

Enforceable Obligation Payment Schedule

On May 10, 2012, the West Sacramento Redevelopment Agency Oversight Board (“Oversight Board”) unanimously approved the Amended Recognized Obligation Payment Schedule (Amended ROPS) for the period covering July 1, 2012 thru December 31, 2012. This is a substitute for the version transmitted to you on April 13, 2012.

As requested by the Department of Finance in its letter dated April 27, 2012, the July through December 2012 ROPS presented to and approved by the Oversight Board did not include the following four line items identified by DOF (see previous ROPS transmitted April 13, 2012) as not qualifying as Enforceable Obligations:


  • Form A, line item 4 Port Capital Reserve Funding Agreement, outstanding amount of $9,774,000; and
  • Form A, line item 6, Bridge District Infrastructure Agreement, outstanding amount of $144,733,389; and
  • Form A, line item 16, Port of West Sacramento, outstanding debt amount of $155,165.85; and
  • Form A, line item 17, Stone Lock ENA, outstanding debt amount of $155,165.85.
The Successor Agency does not agree with DOF's determination that these four items are not enforceable obligations. Accordingly, the Successor Agency hereby: a) requests that DOF reconsider its determination concerning these four items; and b) expressly reserves all rights to pursue legal and equitable relief as it deems necessary and proper in order to ensure that these four items be treated as Enforceable Obligations for all purposes.
