Continued Work on City Finance

In response to a request from the House Finance Committee, AWC submitted a list of ideas that could help improve city fiscal conditions. The list was developed through discussions with the AWC Ad Hoc Fiscal and Legislative Committees, intergovernmental relations staff for cities and towns, and other stakeholders. Ideas include lifting the 1% property tax cap, enabling greater city fiscal home rule, and dedicated city transportation revenue options.

This is not finalized list of ideas, in fact, it is just the beginning of the conversation regarding alternatives to improve city fiscal conditions. AWC will continue this discussion with cities, towns, and legislators, including the October meeting of the House Finance Committee.
