ear Norm:

n response to our telephone conference of August 17, 1976, I
ooked to see if,there is anything in the law which would auth-
rize the procedure which we discussed concerning the Basin taxes.

he Basin taxing authority this year, and in future years, unless
Chapter 373 is changed, is based upon Chapter 61-691, which states,
among other things, "provided, that no such tax shall be levied
within a basin unless and until the annual budget and required
tax levy shall have been approved by formal action of the Basin
Water Management Board." This, of course, was referring to the
watershed basin tax levy.

I feel the procedure should be this: That a specific budget should
be adopted by the Basin, and based upon the best estimate possible
with any of the tax information that you have or can acquire at
the time, a specific levy should be set to be approved by the Basin
Board. If, subsequent to September 1, 1976, you find a substantial
change in the tax information as approved by the State Department
of Revenue, then I suggest that you immediately call meetings of
the Basins which have any such change and re-adopt the tax levy to
best bring in the necessary funds to take care of the actual budget
that was approved by the Basin.

As we know, it is almost impossible each year to determine exactly
what amount the tax levy will bring in, even though the budget it-
self is specific. I believe the above procedure is necessary under
the law, and, of course, each Basin can be told about this procedure


76 -24.

'hen, each Basin can advise the staff whether or not it wishes to
ave another meeting if there is a material difference because of
Change in the tax information, subsequent to September 1, 1976.


f you have any suggestions or questions concerning any
please contact me.

Yours very truly,



Myro Gibbons
