Powell Citizen Financial Review Task Force


-Undertake a high level review of the City’s cost reduction efforts to date, compare service levels and costs to other jurisdictions, consider best practices, and identify possible near-term strategies for additional savings.

-Determine the long-range financial impacts of revenue losses and reductions, structural changes to the overall revenue stream as a result of these reductions, and their impacts to operating and capital improvement budgets looking forward.

-Assess the potential for strengthening long-term revenue prospects through approaches such as, but not limited to adjusting user fees, including indirect costs in cost recovery efforts, increasing the income tax rate, reducing the income tax credit or increasing property taxes, and economic development.

-Review near-term and long-term capital needs and identify potential funding sources.

-Report findings and provide viable options for City Council to consider by the end of June, 2018.
