Title

Resolution transferring $83,409.13 from the 2016 Common Council Contingent Fund to the Remission of Taxes Fund for payment on the 2015 tax roll.

Analysis

This resolution appropriates $83,409.13 from the 2016 Common Council Contingent Fund to supplement the Remission of Taxes Fund for refunds as set forth in the resolution Nos. 160955 and 160700 submitted by Department of City Development for St Ann Center Properties Inc.
