Fiscal Note
This resolution authorizes the early attachment of a property in the Town of Madison to the City. Under the proposed revenue sharing agreement, the City agrees to pay the town one-half of the City share of property taxes from the parcel received by the City during the calendar quarter, but not less than the amount of property taxes levied by the Town in the year of attachment. Town property taxes collected in the 2015 tax year were $13,961.94. One-half of the estimated City taxes on the property in the 2015 tax year would have been $9,991.15. Funding for this revenue sharing agreement would need to be included in the 2017 City Operating Budget under "Revenue Sharing Payments" which is listed under Direct Appropriations.

The levy limit for the City is also increased by the amount of the town property taxes on annexed property.
