DATE:          June 30, 2010

TO:            Mark Antonio, City Manager

FROM:          Richard D. Cannone, Development Services Director

SUBJECT:       A Resolution of the City of Hallandale Beach, Florida, Approving a
               Memorandum of Understanding between the Broward Metropolitan
               Planning Organization (BMPO), the City of Hallandale Beach, and the
               City of Hollywood to Participate in Joint Collaborative Planning Efforts
               Related to the Designation of Mobility Hubs in the BMPO‟s 2035 Long
               Range Transportation Plan; and Providing an Effective Date.
                                                                                CAD
               #008/10


PURPOSE:

To adopt a Resolution and authorize the City Manager to execute a Memorandum of
Understanding between the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (BMPO), the
City of Hallandale Beach and the City of Hollywood to participate in joint collaborative
planning efforts related to the designation of mobility hubs as identified in the BMPO‟s
2035 Long Range Transportation Plan. A copy of the agreement is attached hereto as
Exhibit “A”.

BACKGROUND:

In December 2009, the BMPO adopted the Broward 2035 Long Range Transportation
Plan (LRTP) which sets a framework for increasing and enhancing alternative
transportation options throughout Broward County. A major component to this plan is the
proper designation of mobility hubs to facilitate public transit options. The LRTP has
identified mobility hubs within the cities of Hallandale Beach and Hollywood. A mobility
hub is defined as a transit access point with frequent transit service, high development
potential, and a critical point for trip generation or transfers within the transit system.
Further, they are places of connection for walking, biking, park-n-ride, transit, and
carpooling. The LRTP has identified three types of mobility hubs:
     A Gateway Hub is the largest and includes a building with restrooms, car and
         bike share facility, WiFi, and ticket vending machines;
     An Anchor Hub which provides a shelter with bus and taxi bays, surface parking,
         and a bike share facility; and
     A Community Hub which provides real-time passenger info, transit maps and
         schedules. This hub is used more for short, local trips versus the larger hubs that
         are designed to be served by bus rapid transit or light rail.

DISCUSSION:



**Time Certains are Provided as A Guide and May Not Be Heard at the Time Specified**
REGULAR AGENDA - July 21, 2010
Page 11
The Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (BMPO) has tentatively identified a
Gateway Hub near Hallandale Beach Blvd and US1, 2 Community Hubs along East
Hallandale Beach Blvd., and a Community Hub near Pembroke Road and US1 (see map
attached as Exhibit “B”.

Further study is needed to identify appropriate locations and specific transportation
needs and land use impacts of the future hub locations. BMPO has partnered with the
Broward Community Design Collaborative (BCDC) at the FAU College of Architecture,
Urban and Public Affairs to fund and prepare a Livability Study. The BMPO has divided
the County into several Livability Planning Areas, each including multiple municipalities.
The Hallandale Beach/East Hollywood Study Area covers approximately 16.4 square
miles with the boundaries at the Atlantic Ocean to the east, approximately ½ mile north
of Sheridan Street to the north, I-95 to the west, and the Miami-Dade/Broward County
line.

By approving this Memorandum of Understanding, the City is expressing support for the
collaborative planning initiative, and will allow staff to participate in a technical Working
Group. Staff participation is intended to provide a local perspective in the Working
Group, which has representatives from the City of Hollywood, Broward County and
Florida Department of Transportation. There will be no costs to the City to participate in
this study, with the exception of staff participation.

The Broward 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) provides a Cost Feasible
Plan for the projects outlined and there is currently $8.5 billion in revenues available.
Depending on the services and projects chosen, additional funding could be required.
Some possible funding sources identified in the LRTP may include: a countywide sales
tax, a Vehicle Miles Traveled Tax, use of a Tax Increment Financing District, or a
combination of all three.

At this time, municipalities in the Northern Broward and Plantation/Mid-Town/Sunrise
Livability Planning Areas have already executed MOUs for their Study Areas. In addition,
the City of Hollywood is approved this Memorandum of Understanding to their City
Commission on July 7, 2010.

RECOMENDATION:

City Commission adopt the Resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute the
attached Memorandum of Understanding with the Broward Metropolitan Planning
Organization, the City of Hollywood and the City of Hallandale Beach.

DATE:          July 12, 2010

TO:            Mark Antonio, Interim City Manager

FROM:          Richard D. Cannone, Director of Development Services Department

SUBJECT:       Consideration of annual renewal of 4:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Nightclub
               Licenses for Fiscal Year 2010-2011



PURPOSE:

The purpose of this memorandum is to request City Commission consideration and
approval of all nightclub licenses before they are renewed as per Section 5-9 (d) of the
City Code or Ordinances.

BACKGROUND:

Licenses to sell alcoholic beverages are issued by the State; however, hours of sale are
controlled by the City. Section 5-4(a) of the Hallandale Beach Code of Ordinances
specifies establishments shall not sell alcoholic beverages between the hours of 2:00
a.m. and 7:00 a.m. on weekdays and Saturdays or between 2:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on
Sundays, unless a nightclub license has been issued by the City.

Section 5-9(d) states all nightclub licenses expire at 11:59 p.m. on September 30 of
each year and the City Commission may consider renewal of these licenses at the first
regular meeting in August. Since this year‟s summer recess for the City Commission
has been scheduled for August, staff is bringing the item for consideration prior to the
City Commission‟s summer break.

The criteria for issuance and renewal of nightclub licenses (Section 5-9 of the Code of
Ordinances) include, but is not limited to, the amount of off-street parking available, the
amount and degree of law enforcement activity generated by the extra hours of
operation, and any adverse effects the operation may have on neighboring properties.

DISCUSSION

Currently, the City Commission has granted nightclub licenses for the following eleven
(11) establishments (see attachment #1)

        1. Bartini‟s
           601 Silks Run #2497

        2. Cadillac Ranch

Licenses for Bartini‟s and Greenhouse have not been issued at this time as these
establishments are still under construction. MI-VI, Inc. was approved by the City
Commission on March 17, 2010, but has now closed the establishment. Although the
application for Cadillac Ranch was approved by the City Commission on April 21, 2010,
the establishment has an outstanding payment in the amount of $5,748 which was due
when the City Commission first approved the nightclub license. As no payment has been
received, the applicant would be required to re-apply for a new nightclub license.
However, Cadillac Ranch has advised they will not utilize the extended hour privilege
and has stopped operating pass 2:00 a.m.

Listed below are the results from inspections conducted by the Police, Fire and
Development Services Department, Building & Zoning Divisions, for the establishments.

Police

A comparison of Police calls for service to each establishment for the period June 2008
through June 2009 and June 2009 through June 2010 is listed on Attachment #2.

The Police Department has no objections to the renewal of the nightclub licenses for the
eleven (11) establishments listed. The Police Department‟s two-year history report
indicates the number of calls for service for the eleven (11) establishments. Greenhouse
and Bartini‟s have not opened so there are no activities to report. The report indicates
an increase for the following four (4) establishments; namely, FL Tatiana Club
Restaurant, Flanigan‟s Seafood Bar & Grill, Orchid Concessions, Inc. (Gulfstream Park)

and Hollywood Concessions, Inc. (Mardi Gras). Three (3) establishments, namely, Deco
Lounge, MI VI, Inc. and Cadillac Ranch are new establishments, therefore, the Police
Department‟s report reflects calls for service for one (1) year, June 2009 to June 2010,
for these establishments. However, as mentioned previously, Cadillac Ranch has since
ceased operating passed 2:00 a.m. and MI-VI has closed the establishment. The calls
for service breakdown of the establishments showing increases, indicates the increases
were relative to service calls and not any major criminal infractions. (See attachment #3)

The Police Department will continue to monitor activity at the locations and work with the
owners of the establishments to reduce the calls for service.

Fire

The Fire Department inspections revealed violations under the Florida Fire Prevention
Code for six (6) establishments; namely, Chapultepec Mexican Bar & Restaurant, FL
Tatiana Club-Restaurant, Flanigan‟s Seafood Bar & Grill, Orchid Concessions, Inc.
(Gulfstream Park), Hollywood Concessions Inc. (Mardi Gras) and Ocean‟s 11 Lounge
South. The Fire Department report stipulated that renewal of the Nightclub Licenses for
the six (6) establishments be contingent upon these facilities correcting the cited
violations. (See attachment #4)

Code Compliance

The Code Compliance Division conducted inspection of all eleven (11) establishments.
Chapultepec Mexican Bar & Restaurant, Cadillac Ranch, Bartini‟s, Deco Lounge, FL
Tatiana Club Restaurant Inc., Flanigan‟s Seafood Bar & Grill, Greenhouse, Orchid
Concessions, Inc. (Gulfstream Park), Hollywood Concessions, Inc. (Mardi Gras), MI VI,
Inc. has no violations. Oceans 11 Lounge South has a minor violation but has applied
for permits to renovate the property which also includes correcting the existing code
violation. (See attachment #5)

Building

The Building Division conducted inspections at nine (9) of the establishments. Bartini‟s
and Greenhouse are not included on the inspection report as they are not open and still
under interior construction. Deco Lounge had no violations. The other establishments
have minor violations as noted. The violations at Chapultepec Mexican Bar &
Restaurant, however, are pre-existing and were brought to their attention at renewal time
last year. The violations are still outstanding and should be corrected prior to granting
their renewal. (See attachment #6)



Planning & Zoning

The Planning and Zoning Division had no adverse comments to the renewal of the
licenses for the nine (9) establishments. (See attachment #7)

Cadillac Ranch has advised staff that they have not utilized the extended hours beyond
2:00 a.m. and as such is not seeking a renewal of the Nightclub License. Should they
desire to extend the hours in the future, a new application shall be required.

Hollywood Concessions, Inc. (Mardi Gras) was approved for a 6:00 a.m. closing
Nightclub License by the City Commission on August 1, 2007. Based on occupancy
capacity, fees totaling $812,532 are due for Fiscal Years 2007/2008, 2008/2009 and
2009/2010.

Orchid Concessions, Inc. (Gulfstream Park) was approved for a 6:00 a.m. closing
Nightclub License on December 19, 2007. Based on occupancy capacity, fees totaling
$390,474 are due for Fiscal Years 2007/2008, 2008/2009 and 2009/2010.

The City has been working with these pari-mutuel businesses on an equitable solution in
determining how the regulatory fees for a nightclub should be assessed against these
unique facilities.

CONSIDERATION

Establishments holding extended hours licenses are continually reminded that the
granting of extended hours is a privilege, subject to modification or termination by the
City Commission each year at renewal time. If, prior to renewal time, the City Manager
determines that any licensee has either violated a condition of renewal or is operating in
a manner harmful to the public health, safety or welfare, he/she may place on the City
Commission agenda the matter of revoking the nightclub license (Section 5-9 (e)).

RECOMMENDATION:

Staff has no adverse comments and recommends renewal of the Nightclub Licenses for
the following nine (9) establishments subject to conditions of approval as noted below:

                                                                          CAD# 017/09


PURPOSE:

To approve Ordinances on Second Reading creating a Regional Activity Center (RAC)
Land Use Designation for the area generally bounded by Federal Highway to the east,
County Line Road to the south, Dixie Highway to the west and the along the Foster
Road Corridor (Please refer to attached „Exhibit A,‟ map of Amendment Area and
„Exhibit B,‟ legal description of Amendment Area).

BACKGROUND:

On February 18, 2009 after numerous community meetings and City Commission
Workshops, the City Commission adopted the Citywide Master Plan and Implementation
Strategy (Please refer to attached „Exhibit C,‟ Strategy and Implementation chart). One
of the recommendations of the Master Plan was to create a Regional Activity Center with
a focus on transit-oriented development. In August 2009, the City Commission
authorized retaining Calvin Giordano & Associates to assist staff in the creation of the
Regional Activity Center and preparation of the Land Use Plan Amendment application
to Broward County.

On November 17, 2009 the Planning and Zoning Board/ Local Planning Agency
recommended approval of the Plan and Land Use Map Amendments.

On November 18, 2009 the City Commission approved the Plan Amendments and

**Time Certains are Provided as A Guide and May Not Be Heard at the Time Specified**
REGULAR AGENDA - July 21, 2010
Page 20
authorized their transmittal to the appropriate County and State agencies for review.

On February 25, 2010 the Broward County Planning Council recommended approval of
the Plan Amendments on First Reading provided that:
     Foster Park is specifically restricted to recreation and open space uses as
       provided in Resolution 2009-09, adopted May 6, 2009 which dedicates Foster
       Park to the public for 25 years as an outdoor recreation area; and
     Any existing park space that is replaced shall be done so at an equivalent or
       improved capacity serving the same neighborhood.

On March 23, 2010 the Broward County Commission approved the Plan Amendments
on First Reading.

On May 6, 2010 the Plan Amendments were transmitted to the Department of
Community Affairs and the following agencies for review:
   Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services;
   Department of Education;
   Department of Environmental Protection;
   Department of State;
   Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission;
   Governor‟s Office of Tourism, Trade and Economic Development;
   Department of Transportation;
   South Florida Regional Planning Council; and
   Broward County School Board.

On June 7, 2010 the South Florida Regional Planning Council held a public hearing and
found the Plan Amendments generally consistent with the Strategic Regional Policy Plan
for South Florida.

On June 24, 2010 the Broward County Planning Council recommended approval of the
Plan Amendments on Second Reading.

On June 25, 2010 the Florida Department of Community Affairs issued a letter advising
there were no comments or issues with the Plan Amendments. In addition, of the ten
review agencies the Plan Amendments were transmitted to, staff only received a
comment from the Department of Transportation encouraging the City to include transit
oriented policies into the Comprehensive Plan, which it does.

Approximately 4600 public hearing notices will be mailed to all property owners located
within the RAC or within 1000 feet of the RAC boundaries 10 days prior to the City
Commission meeting for Second Reading.

Upon adoption by the City at Second Reading, the Plan Amendments will be presented
to the Broward County Commission for adoption at a date to be determined. In addition,
the City‟s Comprehensive Plan will be transmitted to the Broward County Planning
Council for recertification.

TO:            Mark Antonio, City Manager

FROM:          Richard D. Cannone, Director of Development Services Department

SUBJECT:    An Ordinance of The City of Hallandale Beach, Florida Vacating Certain
            Portions of Alleyways within the Hollywood Pines Estates Subdivision
            Blocks 3 Generally located at 426 NE 5th Street Providing for Conflict,
            Severability and an Effective Date. Application #44-10-RV by Seville
            General Partners. 426 NE 5th Street
______________________________________________________________________

PURPOSE

The City Commission consider an Ordinance on first reading vacating an alleyway
located within the property located at 426 NE 5th Street. The Ordinance (see attached)
is the result of Application #44-10-RV by Seville General Partners.

BACKGROUND

The property is part of an initial re-plat of the "Hollywood Pines Estates" Plat which was
platted in 1925. The plat was cancelled by a Final Decree and Order in 1927. While this
Decree and Order cancelled all Block and Lots contained with the Plat, the highways,
streets and alleys dedicated remained in effect.

DISCUSSION

The applicant is requesting vacation of right-of-way (alleyway) located between NE 4th
Court and NE 5th Street according to the Hollywood Pines Estates Plat within the subject
property. Portions of two existing buildings located on the property were built within the
alleyway requested to be vacated. The adjacent property to the south, 425 North
Federal, LLC has also filed a road vacation application (#45-10-RV) to vacate the
alleyway within their property at 425 North Federal Highway. The alleyway is not being
used by either property owner or the public and has not functioned as an alleyway for
some time.

In order to legally remove from public use the alleyway must be closed and vacated
through the public hearing process as provided by Section 25-103 of the Hallandale
Beach Code of Ordinances. Accordingly, all property owners adjacent to the right of way
requested to be vacated must also be included in the application. In this instance, the
applicant owns both properties separated by alleyway.

REGULAR AGENDA - July 21, 2010
Page 23

      length within the subject property. Please refer to the attached boundary survey

   4. There are no utilities located within the alleyway. The City Engineer and City‟s
      Fire Department had no objections to the vacation.

Review of Application Criteria

Section 25-103 of the City Code requires the following criteria be considered in
determining whether to grant or deny a petition for right-of-way vacation:

   1. Whether any adjoining or abutting property owners will be denied convenient
      access or otherwise adversely affected by a proposed vacation.

       No adjoining or abutting property owners will be denied convenient access
       or be adversely affected by the proposed vacation. The alley is within the
       boundaries of the existing development at the subject property.

   2. Whether the general public will be adversely affected by a proposed vacation.

       The general public will not be adversely affected by the proposed vacation.
       The alley is not being used by the public and is within the boundaries of
       the existing development at the subject property.

   3. Whether a present or reasonably foreseeable need exists or will exist for the
      street, right-of-way or easement sought to be vacated.

       No reasonably foreseeable need exists for the right-of-way sought to be
       vacated.

streets and alleys dedicated remained in effect.

DISCUSSION

The applicant is requesting vacation of right-of-way (alleyway) according to the
Hollywood Pines Estates Plat within the subject property. A portion of the existing
building located on the property was built over the alleyway requesting to be vacated.
The alleyway is located between NE 4th Court and NE 5th Street. The adjacent property
to the north, is owned by Seville General Partners and is where Seville Mobile Home
Park is located. Seville General Partners have also filed an application (#44-10-RV)
seeking to vacate the alleyway within their property located at 426 NE 5Th Street. The
alleyway is not being used by either property owner or the public and has not functioned
as an alleyway for some time.

In order to legally remove from public use the alleyway must be closed and vacated
through the public hearing process as provided by Section 25-103 of the Hallandale
Beach Code of Ordinances. Accordingly, all property owners adjacent to the right of way
requested to be vacated must also be included in the application. In this instance, the
applicant owns both properties separated by alleyway.

determining whether to grant or deny a petition for right-of-way vacation:

   4. Whether any adjoining or abutting property owners will be denied convenient
      access or otherwise adversely affected by a proposed vacation.

       No adjoining or abutting property owners will be denied convenient access
       or be adversely affected by the proposed vacation. The alley is within the
       boundaries of the existing development at the subject property.

   5. Whether the general public will be adversely affected by a proposed vacation.

       The general public will not be adversely affected by the proposed vacation.
       The alley is not being used by the public and is within the boundaries of
       the existing development at the subject property.

   6. Whether a present or reasonably foreseeable need exists or will exist for the
      street, right-of-way or easement sought to be vacated.

                                   MEMORANDUM


DATE:          July 2, 2010

TO:            Mark Antonio, City Manager

FROM:          Patricia Ladolcetta, Director of Finance

SUBJECT:       Consideration of Setting a Tentative Millage Rate and Fire Assessment
               Rate for Fiscal Year 2010-11 and Authorizing the City Manager to Sign
               the Certification of Taxable Value and Advise Appropriate Agencies of the
               Tentative Millage and Fire Assessment Rates


PURPOSE:

To request the City Commission to set a tentative millage rate and fire assessment rates
for Fiscal Year 2010-11 and authorize the City Manager to sign the Certification of
Taxable Value and advise the appropriate agencies of the tentative millage and fire
assessment rates.

BACKGROUND

The Truth-In-Millage (TRIM) Bill legislation requires municipalities to submit the
Certification of Taxable Value (Form DR-420) to the County Appraiser by August 4,
2010. Cities are required to certify in this form the rolled-back millage rate, current year
proposed millage rate, and the date, time and location of the first public hearing.

DISCUSSION

In addition to the TRIM requirements, local governments must also conform to the
maximum millage limitation requirements first imposed by the legislature in 2007. The
provisions for FY 2010-11 are:

       Majority Vote (3/2) – Taxing authorities may levy a maximum millage equal to a
        rolled-back rate calculated using the prior year‟s taxes that would have been
        levied if the maximum majority vote millage rate had been adopted. The City‟s
        majority vote maximum millage rate was 6.8930 last fiscal year, however the City
        adopted a millage rate of 5.9000. If a higher rate had been adopted, the rolled-
        back rate would be based on the adopted rate. This millage rate is then adjusted
        for the change in per capita Florida personal income (-1.89% for 2010-2011) to
        calculate the current year‟s maximum majority vote millage.
       Two-thirds Vote (4/1) – Taxing authorities may levy a millage not more than
        110% of the majority vote maximum millage rate.
       Unanimous Vote – up to 10 Mil cap

The Broward County Property Appraiser‟s Office has submitted their July 1st 2010
Certification of Taxable Value. The rolled-back millage will be 6.7157, when extended
upon the current year's adjusted taxable value of $2,906,787,103 [Gross taxable value

**Time Certains are Provided as A Guide and May Not Be Heard at the Time Specified**
REGULAR AGENDA - July 21, 2010
Page 29
($3,550,322,631) minus new taxable value ($28,437,137) minus CRA dedicated
increment value ($615,098,391)]. The City‟s gross taxable value had a decrease of
$568,055,793 (or -13.8%) from $4,118,378,424 in 2009, to $3,550,322,631 in 2010. This
taxable value loss, when calculated at the City‟s current millage rate of 5.9000, amounts
to a reduction of tax revenue of almost $3.4 million.

Based upon this information the Maximum Levy Limits for FY 2010/2011 are as follows:

      Majority Vote (3/2)– can levy a millage up to 7.9691
      Two-thirds Vote (4/1) – can levy a millage up to 8.7660
      Unanimous Vote (5/0) – can levy up to 10 mil cap

The City‟s current millage rate is 5.9000. The millage rate staff proposes to provide to
the County is 5.9000. Note that it has been the practice of the City in the past to set the
tentative millage rate higher than what was adopted for the purpose of financial
adjustments. However, this year staff is not proposing to set the tentative millage rate
higher. Staff is confident that by keeping the millage rate at 5.9000 mills the City will be
able to maintain our high level of services and be fiscally responsible. Once the City sets
its tentative millage rate it cannot go above that rate without re-advertising.

In addition to the millage rate, the City must also advise the Broward County Property
Appraiser the date and time of the public hearings and the total amount to be collected
from the Fire Assessment. The City Manager is recommending keeping the Fire
Assessment rate at $125 per year for residential classification. Furthermore, all other
classifications will remain unchanged. At $125 the City‟s rate is among the lowest in
Broward County. For Fiscal Year 2010-11, the gross assessment of $4,759,878 will net
receipts of approximately $4,522,000 or $135,686 above the current year amount of
$4,386,314 as a result of changes in the number of billable units in each classification.

Staff proposes to conduct the Fire Assessment hearing at 7:25 p.m. on September 15,
2010 in accordance with State Statute.

The date of the First Public Hearing by law has to be set between September 3 and
September 18. Furthermore, it cannot conflict with either the County or the School
Board's budget hearings. The County has set its first Public Hearing for September 14,
and its second Public Hearing for September 28. The School Board has scheduled its
second Public Hearing for September 16. Also note the City's Public Hearings must be
held after 5:00 p.m.

The Second Public Hearing to adopt the final millage rate must be held two to five days
after advertising the Hearing and no later than October 1. In addition, the advertisement
must be within fifteen days from the First Public Hearing date.

RECOMMENDATION

The City Commission:

      Authorize the City Manager to sign and advise the appropriate agencies of the
       City Commission proposed millage rate of 5.9000, the total Fire Assessment to
       be collected as described on page one of this report and the date, time and

       Hearing at 7:15 p.m., and the Fire Assessment Hearing at 7:25 p.m.; and,

      Authorize the Second City Millage/Budget Public Hearing on Wednesday,
       September 29, 2010, at 6:55 p.m. followed by the Golden Isles Safe
       Neighborhood District Hearing at 7:05 p.m., followed by the Three Islands Safe
       Neighborhood District Hearing at 7:15 p.m.

               Appropriate Agencies of the Tentative Millage Rate - CMD #041/92

PURPOSE

To request the City Commission to set a tentative millage rate for the Golden Isles Safe
Neighborhood District for the Fiscal Year 2010-11 and authorize the City Manager to
sign the Certification of Taxable Value and advise the appropriate agencies of the
tentative millage rate.

BACKGROUND

The Golden Isles Safe Neighborhood District will levy a millage as a Dependent Special
District of the City of Hallandale Beach and must adhere to all of the requirements of the
Truth-In-Millage (TRIM) Legislation.

The TRIM Bill legislation requires Dependent Special Districts to submit the Certification
of Taxable Value (Form DR-420) to the County Appraiser by August 4, 2010. This form
indicates the proposed millage and the date, time and location for the First Public

DISCUSSION

The Broward County Property Appraiser‟s Office has submitted their July 1st 2010
Certification of Taxable Value. The rolled-back millage will be 1.1461, when extended
upon the current year's adjusted taxable value of $197,643,634 [Gross taxable value
($197,780,000) minus new taxable value ($136,366). The District‟s gross taxable value
had a decrease of $9,383,960 (or -4.5%) from $207,163,960 in 2009, to $197,780,000 in
2010. This taxable value loss, when calculated at the District‟s current millage rate of
1.0934, amounts to a reduction of tax revenue of $10,260.

upon the current year's adjusted taxable value of $407,764,556 [Gross taxable value
