EXPLANATORY STATEMENT- (Continued)
In order to comply with statutory and regulatory requirements, the amounts appropriated for certain department or functions have been split and their parts appear in
several places. Those appropriations which have been split add up as follows:
Less: Employee share deposited in Payroll Agency Account
Current Fund Budget
Water Utility Operating Fund
Sewer Utility Operating Fund
Municipal Library Tax Levy Law-On March 21, 2011 the Governor enacted P.L. 2011,c.38 (S-2068). The law takes effect immediately and provides a dedicated line item on Property tax
bill to fund municipal free and joint free public libraries. It does not result in any increased taxes, but changes the way the minimum library appropriation is displayed to the public. It
reduces the municipal tax levy and rate, and creates a new line item on the tax bill for library purposes.
Below is a comparison of the Preliminary 2015 tax rate and actual 2014 tax rate for Municipal purposes only and a comparison of amounts to be
raised by taxes for 2015 and 2014.
