RECOMMENDATION:

body
BACKGROUND:
State law allows the Board of Supervisors to delegate to the County Treasurer investment authority to invest and reinvest County funds and the funds of other depositors in the County Treasury and provides that this delegation be carried out by ordinance and subject to annual renewal by the Board. On June 7, 2011, this Board adopted San Mateo County Ordinance Code Section 2.91.040 which delegated investment authority to the Treasurer for the 2011 calendar year and provided for the annual renewal of such delegation in subsequent years by resolution.

DISCUSSION:
California Government Code Section 27000.1 provides that the Board may delegate to the Treasurer the authority "to invest or to reinvest the funds of the county and the funds of other depositors in the county treasury." Section 53607 limits the delegation of investment authority to a one-year period but allows the Board to renew the delegation of investment authority each year. The proposed resolution would delegate investment authority to the Treasurer for the entirety of 2019.

County Counsel has reviewed and approved the Resolution as to form.

This resolution contributes to the Shared Vision 2025 outcome of a Collaborative Community by managing the financial assets of the County and maintaining the value of the investment pool through professional and efficient administration of the County Treasury for County departments, special districts, schools, cities, and taxpayers.
