To Vote in Favor of an Allocation of Public Safety Local Income Tax to Fire Departments and Volunteer Fire Departments That Are Operated By or Serve Political Subdivisions Not Otherwise Entitled to Receive a Distribution of Public Safety Local Income Tax as Provided by IC 6-3.6-6-8(c)

The Monroe County Local Income Tax (MC LIT) Council consists of four member-fiscal bodies: (1) the City of Bloomington Common Council; (2) the Monroe County Council; (3) the Town of Ellettsville Town Council; and, (4) the Town of Stinesville Town Council. Five departments and volunteer fire departments—all of which serve political subdivisions that would not receive a distribution of Public Safety Local Income Tax in 2019—filed applications with the MC LIT Council seeking distributions of Public Safety Local Income Tax for 2019 in accordance with IC 6-3.6-6-8(c). The MC LIT Council formed a Public Safety Local Income Tax (PS LIT) Committee to, among other duties, review and consider those applications and, upon the completion of that review and consideration, to make a recommendation to the members of the MC LIT Council. This Resolution would cast the City of Bloomington’s votes on the MC LIT Council in favor of the committee’s recommendation to allocate specific amounts of Public Safety Local Income Tax revenue in 2019 to: (1) Bean Blossom Stinesville Volunteer Fire Department, Inc.; (2) Benton Township Volunteer Fire Department; (3) Ellettsville Fire Department; (4) Perry-Clear Creek Fire Protection District; and, 5) Van Buren Township Fire Department.
