            (2-1)  The Following Communication: (H.P. 1120)

 

CITY OF AUBURN, MAINE

 

Jonathan LaBonte, Mayor

IN CITY COUNCIL

RESOLVE 03-05132013

 

Expressing the Opposition of the City Council of the City of Auburn to
Proposals to Shift the Burden off Funding State Government to the
Property Tax and Property Tax Payer.

 

WHEREAS, the State Administration has submitted a proposed budget for the coming biennium that will shift the funding state government to the property tax by eliminating or significantly modifying longstanding revenue sharing and property tax relief programs; and

 

WHEREAS, the proposal to suspend municipal revenue sharing would result in a $2.4 million revenue loss to the City of Auburn and, representing 6.4% of the City's general fund operating budget and $1.19 on the property tax rate; and

 

WHEREAS, the proposal to redirect the excise tax on tractor trailers, despite the presence of Maine's largest dry goods port within our City limits, is estimated to reduce City revenue available for road construction by an additional $300,000 or $0.14 cents on the tax rate; and

 

WHEREAS, eliminating the homestead exemption in FY 15 for those under 65 will increase taxes for no longer qualifying residents by $196 on the net median home value in that year if the City's tax rate remains unchanged, representing a tax increase of over 6.67% for most of those losing the exemption; and

 

WHEREAS, low and moderate income residents under the age of 65 who now qualify for the state property tax circuit breaker program will no longer qualify for it in the coming budget year; and

 

WHEREAS, starting in the second year of the biennium, the business equipment tax reimbursement program (BETR), under which businesses are fully reimbursed for property taxes paid on certain business equipment, will be eliminated with most qualifying property transferred to the business equipment tax exemption program (BETE). Under this program, the City will be reimbursed by the State for 60% of the taxes due; and

 

WHEREAS, the elimination of the business equipment tax reimbursement (BETR) and the modification to the business equipment tax exemption (BETE) will have a significant impact on the City's commercial taxpayers, many of whom make-up the economic engine for the State of Maine, providing jobs and good paying salaries and benefits. The elimination of the BETR program will adversely impact the retail sector, a sector who will not qualify under the BETE program. Additionally, all businesses within the BETR program will experience an 18 month void in State reimbursement until those businesses qualify for BETE program funds; and

 

WHEREAS, further staffing and expenditure reductions of the magnitude to remove or mitigate these losses, without financial support to implement shared service or consolidation efforts, would undermine the City's ability to provide local public services;

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF AUBURN, that the City Council hereby expresses its strong opposition to provisions included in the recently proposed state budget that would shift the burden of funding state government to the property tax and property taxpayer. These proposals, even if consolidation efforts were pursued, would lead to an increase in property taxes in Auburn, taxes which often are unrelated to the ability of property owners to pay, or require further service reductions. And while consolidation efforts, even if fully implemented at the start of the new fiscal year, would not be sufficient to replace revenue sharing, the City Council does stand ready to discuss how state incentives could advance those opportunities;

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the City Clerk is directed to provide copies of this RESOLVE to the members of the Legislature representing the City of Auburn, members of the Appropriations and Taxation Committees, the Governor, the Speaker of the House, the President of the Senate and the Legislative leadership.

 

A TRUE COPY ATTEST

S/Susan Clements-Dallaire, City Clerk

 

Passage on 5/13/2013, 6-0-1  (Councilor Crowley was out of the room during the vote).
