Mr. Brock gave a presentation on the safety service levy for a new police facility and also allow us to
keep the additional seven firefighters that a grant is paying for this year and next year. He presented
the history of the levies and a comparison of surrounding jurisdictions reflecting income taxes and
property taxes to provide their services.

Mrs. Rubin referred to the City of Mason’s tax rule where property tax was forgiven because a lot of
our residents are already paying property tax. She would like to see an increase of one-half percent
rather than a quarter with the increase to be used for safety services and capital improvements. We 
would forgive that one half percent credit for those residents paying property tax. If we allocate .35 to
safety service that gets us to the $1.6 million for safety services and .15 going towards capital
improvement projects. We would end up with $2.2 million in revenue. It would only affect
approximately 4,000 residents in the City and takes the pressure off the property tax.

Mr. Clark asked with the credit what percentage would actually pay for this tax. Mrs. Rubin advised
that it would be those that work here, but do not live here and we protect during the day. Mr. Clark
would like to have what is a capital improvement defined.

Mr. Brock reported that we have been receiving inquiring about locating a marijuana cultivation within
the City of Monroe. Mrs. Rubin added that it is about a $200,000 application and a lot of jurisdictions
have adopted moratoriums on these types of businesses.
