III. Presentation of the 2006-2007 Budget.

 

Dave Garnick, Budget/Financial Planning Manager, reported that most of the budget is the same because the district is essentially dormant, as they took care of all the financing in which the district was created.  He noted the budget for next year will go up about $4,750 and the change is due to prior year tax revenue for people who are getting caught up on their old taxes.  He noted as that is coming in, $24,000 would go to the Metro Wastewater Management Commission.  He added there is $28,266 in contingency.

 

Holser asked how long things would be kept on the books.

 

Wilson responded that, as long as past due taxes are coming into the district, to continue to transfer those funds to the Metro Wastewater Commission requires that the district is in existence.  She added if the district is not in existence, those past due taxes would go to the state.
