9. PRESIDENT’S REPORT - None
10. QUESTION/ANSWER: PRESIDENT & TRUSTEES
Trustee Carbonaro asked the Treasurer if he had any idea how dismal things are going to become with the State.
Mr. Dowden stated that he has not heard anything recently with the budget running out and they have not said what will be on hold. The last time it happened it was mostly smaller items like the gaming tax and also the use tax which didn’t affect them that much.
Administrator Salmons stated that what is affecting them is the holdup of the income tax. The State has notified them that we can anticipate a fairly significant reduction in income tax for the rest of this year. For our purposes that is about $300,000 and about $500,000 for next year’s budget. It is not clear to her why but it has something to do with their accounting function and they hope to have it cleared up by 2018. She talked to the lobbyist today and he told her not to count on getting that money. They are putting the budget together accordingly.
