RESOLUTION OF TOWN BOARD TO PROPOSE EXCEEDING LEVY LIMITS

Whereas, the State of Wisconsin has adopted levy limits on town, village, city and county levies for 2016 and thereafter under s.66.0602 of Wis. Statutes;

Whereas, .66.0602 of Wis. Statutes limits the allowable local levy for 2016 to a percentage increase of no more that the greater of (a) 0% of the 2015 payable 2016 adjusted actual levy as calculated under the state’s levy limit law or (b) a percentage equal to the percent change in equalized value due to net new construction, which for the Town of Calumet is 1 percent:

Whereas, the Town Board of the Town of Calumet, Fond du Lac County believes that the
2016 tax levy (collected in 2017) it is in the town’s best interest to exceed the state levy limit as described above by a greater percentage than 1 per cent.

Whereas, the Town of Calumet 2015 payable 2016 adjusted actual levy is $ 320,289;
And further whereas the state law would limit the increase to $ 3,240 ($0 or dollar amount allowed for net new construction) for an allowable town tax levy of $ 323,529 before adjustments, for 2016, collected in 2017.

Now, Therefore the Town Board of the Town of Calumet, Fond du Lac County does hereby resolve and order as follows:

1. The town board supports an increase in the town tax levy for 2016 that will exceed the state levy limit.

2. The town board directs that the questions of increasing the town tax levy for 2016 (to be collected in 2017) by 9.9 percent, which would increase the town levy by $32,000
for a total town tax levy of $352,289 shall be placed on the agenda for the special town
meeting to be held on November 15, 2016.

Adopted this 1st day of November, 2016.
