SECOND: A general tax of sixty-nine and forty-six hundredth cents ($.6946) on each hundred dollars of assessed valuation of all such taxable property is levied and imposed for municipal operating expenses for hospitals and public health purposes, to be credited to the Health Levy Fund.

 

THIRD: The Council, pursuant to authority granted under Section 92.031, RSMo, in the alternative, elects to impose a tax for debt service of fourteen and zero hundredth cents ($.1400) on each hundred dollars of assessed valuation of all such taxable property, which tax is necessary for the maintenance of the General Debt and Interest Fund for the redemption of the outstanding general obligation bonds of the City maturing in Fiscal Year 2007-08 and for the payment of all interest becoming due and payable in Fiscal Year 2007-08, on the entire outstanding general obligation bond indebtedness of the City, except indebtedness upon which the principal and interest are payable or budgeted for payment from the General Fund, Water Operating Fund, Sewer Fund, and the Sewer Special Assessment Fund.

 

FOURTH: A general tax of one and ninety hundredth cents ($.0190) on each hundred dollars of the assessed valuation of all such taxable property for municipal museum purposes, to be credited to the Museum Special Revenue Fund.


Section 2. (a) In determining the amount of taxes levied by this ordinance upon property subject to such levy, the true value of such property shall be taken to be the valuation shown in the assessments returned by the Assessor for the county in which the property is located for Fiscal Year 2007-08, as equalized according to law; and this levy is made upon the basis of that valuation.

 

(b) The general taxes levied upon the real estate and tangible personal property, and other than the goods, wares and merchandise held by all merchants and raw material, merchandise, finished products, tools, machinery and appliances used or kept on hand by all manufacturers, shall be entered and extended by the Director of Finance in the land and tangible personal property tax records for 2007.

 

(c) The taxes herein levied above are levied at the levels authorized under the Missouri Constitution and Statutes upon the assessments as estimated at the time of levy, provided however, the Legislature having mandated equalization maintenance upon the receipt of equalized valuations, the Council shall proceed to revise and roll back, if required, the foregoing levy upon such equalized assessments in accordance with constitutional and statutory requirements and such taxes shall be extended, billed and collected in the manner provided by ordinance.

 

(d)               All taxes levied by this ordinance shall be collected by the Director of Finance.
