 3.         RDA TAX INCREMENT - Approved


Chairman Piccolo reported that there has been a miscalculation in RDA tax increment funds.  He presented documents that indicated that the approved valuation for properties have not been considered for some time.  He reviewed the records at the County Recorder=s office and surmises that RDA has not been treated appropriately in both directions.  The offset to subtract what we have not been charged for will be very minimal.  He recommended accepting what has occurred and to accept the incremental increase as scheduled for the next two years, which is the termination date for this RDA.  The State Auditor has full knowledge of what has taken place, and holds harmless the Redevelopment Agency, Price City, and Carbon County.  MOTION.  Boardmember Tatton moved that the tax increment be accepted as agreed by Chairman Piccolo, the State Auditor, Pat Larsen and Robert Pero.  Motion seconded by Councilmember Wheeler and carried.
