ITEM 10: Excess Collections for 2021 Debt Service- Each year the Tax Assessor/Collector provides the excess collections for the previous year and certifies the debt collection rate for the upcoming year. This is required by the Truth-in-Taxation laws and must be formally accepted by the Council. For 2020 excess debt collections were $0.00. Per the Tax Assessor, the 2021 amount “is to be used in the 2022 debt tax calculation because the 2021 actual debt calculation rate met the anticipated 2021 debt collection rate, which was equal to 100%”. This action is a formality required by law. Council voted 5-0 to formally accept the excess collections and debt collection rate.
