    • Increase reliability and stability
    • Recognize diversity of needs and capacity
    • Encourage innovation and cooperation
    • Simplify formula

  • Updating needed but still show general trends
  • For ease of use, we’ve combined clusters into 3 metro and 5 Greater MN categories

wrapping up
Wrapping Up
  • LGA cities raise less property tax with higher tax rates and spend more
  • Property tax base is more uniform than sales tax base among cities
  • Higher spending on public safety and public works is correlated with several overburden measures
wrapping up continued
Wrapping Up (continued)
  • Cities have diverse needs and capacities
  • What you measure depends on the program goal or goals
  • Multiple goals and many variables results in a complicated formula
  • A more simple formula must ignore some relevant differences among cities
