This paper uses “rules of thumb” to determine funding requirements for various classes of public infrastructure the City of O’Fallon’s Department of Public Works is responsible for maintaining. The rules of thumb are not absolute and are used as a starting point to quantify the funding needed.
This information provided gives an assessment of how the City did in FY09 (May 2008 thru April 2009) in funding infrastructure requirements based on the White Paper. Also provides info an how FY10 will likely end.
This spreadsheet shows the current sources of funding for the classes of infrastructure listed. Under the column titled “Source”, General Fund revenues are delivered from property taxes, income taxes, and various other taxes which are collected by the State of Illinois or St. Clair County and are distributed by the City of O’Fallon to the Department of Public Works. Prop S revenues come from a ½% tax on general merchandise sold in the City of O’Fallon which is used by Public Works. MFT (Motor Fuel Tax) comes to the City from the State of Illinois and is based on the most current Census. Water and Sewer are from the “enterprise” funds associated with those utilities furnished by the City of O’Fallon.
This chart shows the rate of MFT (Motor Fuel Tax) which is unchanged since 1990, as compared to Fuel Sales in 1990 to 2009 (as a % of the base 1990 usage). The chart also shows the increase in the National Consumer Price Index (CPI) and an Illinois – based Municipal Price Index (MPI) for Street Maintenance.
This spreadsheet shows the distribution of property tax collected in 2009 to various governmental units.
