As of year-end the city had not yet received the funds, and it had not yet expended any funds on the state-mandated facility improvements.
2. The city imposes a $100 tax on each sale of real estate. The tax is collected by the title companies that process the sales and must be forwarded to the city within 30 days of the transaction. In December there were 600 sales of real estate. As of year-end the city had collected $40,000 of the $60,000 that it was owed.
3. In December the state announced that the city’s share of state assistance for the calendar year 2016 would be $120 million.
