·        This bill could affect the distribution of the Local Government Fund (LGF), Local Government Revenue Assistance Fund (LGRAF), and Library and Local Government Support Fund (LLGSF) within certain counties.

·        Municipalities determined to be the “largest city” within the county (based upon the definition in current law for LGF and LGRAF and within the bill for LLGSF), and that have a population of 20,000 or less and a population less than 15% of the total population of the county within which they wholly or partially lie, are the municipalities that could potentially be negatively impacted by House Bill 329.  These cities could stand to lose revenue by virtue of losing their current right to approve the formula of alternative methods of fund distributions.  Other municipalities, townships, and the county could gain revenue from these state-shared revenues.

 

·        Based on federal 2000 census data, and applying the classifications for cities and villages that have been determined by the Secretary of State, with a population of 20,000 or less as stipulated in the bill, the following officially classified Ohio cities could be impacted by the provisions of the bill.

·        Belmont county/70,226                   Martins Ferry city/7,226                               10.29%

·        Clermont county/177,977               Milford city/6,284                                          3.53%

·        Columbiana county/112,075           East Liverpool city/13,089                             11.68%

·        Geauga county/90,895                    Chardon Village city (chartered)/5,156         5.67%

·        Perry county/34,078                       New Lexington city (special enumeration)/5,033                                                                                                                                                           14.77%

 

 


 

Detailed Fiscal Analysis

 

The following table, which is based upon data from the federal 2000 Census, the Ohio Department of Development, the Ohio Municipal League, and the Secretary of State, displays Ohio’s statewide 2000 population distribution of the largest municipality in each county as a percent of the total county population (in the first five columns).  The distribution of county undivided Local Government Funds for calendar year 1999, as provided by the Ohio Department of Taxation, is displayed in the last two columns.
