body
WHEREAS, On March 5, 2018 Albuquerque City Council adopted a three eighths of one percent (.375%) Gross Receipts Tax (the "2018 Increment"); and
WHEREAS, as of Fiscal Year 2021, the receipts generated by the 2018 Increment have transitioned from the required 60% Public Safety focus, to being available to support the City's general operating fund; and
