Sac Lawyers Think Anaheim Bonds Are Illegal

24
A legal team from Sacramento thinks the Anaheim City Council would violate state law by approving a resolution tonight that would immediately allow for the issuance of bonds to fund improvements to that city's Honda Center, the presumed future home of the Sacramento Kings. In a letter sent to Anaheim city officials, attorney Jeffrey Dorso with Diepenbrock Harrison said the Anaheim resolution "appears to directly conflict with applicable state law that provides taxpayers assurances that legislative actions to approve the issuance of bonds are subject to referendum and do not become effective for a period of 60 days." Dorso asks that the resolution being considered by the Anaheim City Council be amended so that the resolution allowing for the selling of the bonds goes into effect in 60 days. That would allow anyone who objects to the move to collect signatures from Anaheim residents to place a referendum on the ballot repealing the City Council's approval of the bonds. If enough signatures are gathered to qualify a referendum on the ballot, that could delay the selling of the bonds for months - and perhaps hold up improvements to the Honda Center and a Sacramento Kings move to Anaheim for the 2011/12 NBA season. The Anaheim City Council is scheduled to begin discussing the bonds at 5 p.m.
