The Governing Body did not approve a three year budget. However, the Governing Body did forecast revenue and expenses for a period of three years. If the proposed sales tax is adopted, the Governing Body could consider the different many different uses for the sales tax, but they have stated a priority of intentions as outlined in Resolution 630. It generally states the priorities as first the emergency maintenance reserve would be funded; then general infrastructure needs would be considered, then service reductions could be considered and mill rate reduction.
A reduction in the property tax rate after the first three prioritized uses of funds have been considered. In addition, since the Governing Body did not know if the sales tax would pass, the potential revenue from the sales tax was not included in the 3-year budget projections.
