Sarah Ann Shanahan, Clerk

  

Resolution of Town of Fountain Board to Propose Exceeding Levy Limits

(Only for Towns Under 3,000 in population)

            Whereas, the State of Wisconsin has adopted levy limits on town, village, city and county levies for 2014 and thereafter under s. 66.0602 of Wis. Statutes;

            Whereas, s. 66.0602 of Wis. Statutes limits the allowable local levy for 2016 to a percentage increase of no more than the greater of (a) 0% of the 2016 payable 2017 adjusted actual levy as calculated under the state's levy limit law** or (b) a percentage equal to the percent change in equalized value due to net new construction; which for the Town of Fountain is .258 percent;

            Whereas, the Town Board of the Town of Fountain, Juneau County believes that for the 2016  tax levy (collected in 2017)  it is in the town’s best interest to exceed the state levy limit as described above by a greater percentage than % .258

      Whereas, the Town of Fountain 2016 payable 2017 adjusted actual levy is $135,499 And further whereas the state law would limit the increase to $1,629 (dollar amount allowed for net new construction) for an allowable town tax levy of $137,478 before adjustments, for 2016, collected in 2017.

            Now Therefore the Town Board of the Town of Fountain, Juneau County does hereby resolve and order as follows:

                1. The town board supports an increase in the town tax levy for 2016 that will exceed the state levy limit.

2. The town board directs that the question of increasing the town tax levy for 2016  (to be collected in 2017) by 25.72 percent, which would increase the town levy by $35,350  for a total town tax levy of $172,828,  shall be placed on the agenda for the special town meeting to be held on December 1st, 2016.  The increase of $35,350 is to cover the increase in ambulance fees ($10,350) and for road maintenance ($25,000)

Adopted this 10th day of November 2016
