SPECIAL JOINT MEETING OF THE BOARD OF
OCTOBER 2, 2007
Lake County Board of
SALES SURTAX OVERSIGHT ADVISORY COMMITTEE REPORT
Mr. Keith Mullins, Chairman, Sales Surtax Oversight Advisory Committee, addressed the Board stating that, in 2001, the citizens of Lake County voted upon themselves a 15 year one cent sales tax, to be divided equally among the Lake County School Board, the Board of County Commissioners, and the 14 Municipalities in the County, and, at that time, they also formed an oversight advisory committee, to assure the citizens that the sales tax was being spent appropriately. He stated that the Committee meets twice per year – once to look at the budgets and once to look at the actual expenditures, and, when they met on September 10, 2007, it was determined that everybody is budgeted to spend their sales tax appropriately in the upcoming fiscal year. He stated that detailed reports on the County, the School Board, and the Municipalities were available, for the record, and the next meeting is scheduled to be held March 17, 2008. A document containing a report of the expenditures and revenues of the one-cent sales tax was submitted to the Board, for their perusal, as per Lake County Ordinance No. 2001-130.
There being no further business to be brought to the attention of the Board, the meeting was adjourned at 8:40 a.m.
