Agenda Item Summary:
Currently, sales tax revenues are split between 3 funds as follows: general fund 46%, CIP & Vision Fund 46%, and Utility Support Fund 8%. CIP & Vision revenues are then evenly split between the 2 accounts (CIP Account & Vision Account). This ordinance will change that allocation to 50% to General Fund and 50% to CIP & Vision Fund (1 penny to each). The penny to the CIP & Vision Fund would be split 58% to CIP and 42% to Vision. As a result of this ordinance, the General Fund’s share of sales tax revenue would increase from 46 to 50%. CIP would increase from 23 to 29% of sales tax revenue. The Vision Account would decrease from 23 to 21% of sales tax revenue. The Utility Support Fund would receive no further sales tax revenue. Note that the change is scheduled to happen January 1, 2018, as that would keep this year’s revenue stream intact.
