Budget Passage, Income Tax Reallocations, Solar Farm ERA on Tonight’s Pulaski Council Agenda – WKVI Information Center
Passing the 2022 budget, an income tax restructuring and a step towards a solar farm tax rebate are just a few of the items on the Pulaski County Council’s agenda tonight. Adopting tonight’s budget will be the last step in a long process that has seen council members come together for a number of additional meetings.
They will also take public comments tonight on a proposed adjustment to the distribution of local income tax. Pulaski County’s overall local tax rate would remain the same, but more would go to public safety, while less would go to economic development. Plus, less of that public safety money would be earmarked specifically for sending 911, allowing the county and its four towns to use it for other public safety purposes.
Meanwhile, council members will also consider designating the Moss Creek Solar project as an economic revitalization area. This would make him eligible for a tax deduction. In return, the county would likely attempt to negotiate an economic development payment, which would not be subject to property tax caps.
Tonight’s Pulaski County Council meeting begins at 7:00 a.m. EDT at the Pulaski County Truck Garage, following a joint session with county commissioners at 6:00 p.m. EDT. County officials are expected to discuss how to spend US county bailout funds, and Community Development Commission executive director Nathan Origer will provide an update on the two proposed solar projects, the expansion of the Center. justice system and the county’s COVID-19 response.
Both meetings will be webcast live on the Pulaski County, Indiana government Facebook page.
