State appeals Hwy. 12 ruling

As expected, the state’s Department of Finance has appealed the court ruling that both the county’s Highway 12 sidewalks project and the Roseland shopping plaza in Santa Rosa were enforceable obligations.

Back in August, Sacramento Superior Court Judge Eugene Balonon ruled in the county’s favor after the county sued the state over whether or not the two former redevelopment projects were enforceable obligations and could be funded with money from the former redevelopment agency.

“We expected the state would appeal,” said Steve Shupe, the county counsel in the matter.

But as of now, Shupe said, the county doesn’t have a schedule as to when briefs need to be filed or a date set for oral arguments in the matter.

He thought it might be sometime this summer before a date is set.
