HB920 & HB66 “Effect” on Operating Revenue - Defined The following slide depicts the impact on the operating revenue by Ohio General Assembly legislated acts – most notably HB920 & HB66. In essence, the top “blue” line represents our total operating revenue projection and it is presented as “flat” due to the restricting characteristics of the before- mentioned legislation. The Overall increase or rise in operating revenue in the early fiscal years of the line graph is the direct result of the passage of a 5.5 mill $4.808M operating levy in November 2003.
HB66 Only “Effect” on Tangible Taxes Defined The following graph visually depicts the impact of the recently enacted HB66 and the ultimate elimination of the tangible personal property tax on businesses. These tax dollars represent $4.0M or 8% of the district’s operating revenue. The “blue” line depicts the elimination of the tangible tax by 2010, while the “pink” line represents the State subsidy to offset this loss in revenue. Further, the “pink” line or State subsidy is reduced and will ultimately reach zero by 2013, which means that the State does not permanently make up the $4.0M loss of our operating revenue from tangible taxes.
HB66 Only “Effect” on Tangible Taxes 100% Base-Year Hold-Harmless Aid Phase-out of Hold- Harmless Aid, It will equal $0 in 2018
Hudson City School District Operating Fund Expenditure Growth Index Analysis (1999 to 2008) Defined The following line graph represents the annual percentage change in expenses for the fiscal years presented. The culminating effect, was a reduction-in-force of district personnel in the Spring of 2004. The FY2003/04 budget reductions were made permanent for FY2004/05 and lowered the overall expenditure baseline. Beginning in FY2005/06 and thereafter, typical school expenditure growth rates have been assumed including those adjustments as referenced in the January 20, 2006 levy scenario presentation.
