PREAMBLE:
Ordinance 17694 authorized property tax changes for collection in 2014.  However, the new voter-approved parks levy, under Ordinance 17568, was erroneously listed separately instead of being included in the county's regular levy.  Moreover, the estimated levy amounts were not revised to reflect the most recent assessed values available.
