Developing a sound and sustainable financial strategy is paramount for the future of any city. ICA supports legislation that secures local government funding sources such as property taxes, sales tax, transient occupancy taxes and Community Development Block Grants. Additionally, ICA supports legislation that produces new funding for cities to use for infrastructure projects, parks, and delivery of core services. ICA helps member cities to recognize deficient legislation that impacts their abilities to collect current funding sources, creates unfunded mandates and attempts to eliminate or divert local revenues for state and or federal purposes or to another entity.
