This act is an urgency ordinance necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health or safety within the meaning of Cal. Gov’t. Code § 25123 and shall go into immediate effect. The facts constituting the necessity are:

State funding resulting from the passage of Proposition 10 (California Children and Families First Initiative), for early childhood development and smoking prevention programs, begins accruing on January 1, 1999. Section 130100 of the Health & Safety Code requires that the county enact an ordinance creating a County Commission to oversee the expenditure of allocated revenue, prior to January 1, 1999, in order for the county to receive funding. Failure to enact the ordinance by such date places the county in jeopardy of losing all or part of the county’s share which accrues after January 1, 1999, and prior to the effective date of the county ordinance. The loss of such funds would result in the delay of the provision of new early childhood development and smoking prevention programs, which would have a detrimental effect on the health of the citizens of Sierra County, particularly the children. (Ord. 875, eff. 1/14/99)
