A three–person team is looking at Fruita City finances and projects in an effort to see whether voters should be asked again to let the city keep excess tax revenue. This will be the fourth time the city will ask to keep funds that would otherwise be returned to the citizens. All previous times the request has been approved. Excess funds have averaged about two and one half million dollars a year. Those monies are used to maintain and add to an increasing infrastructure in the fastest–growing city in the Grand Valley. The committee studying the proposal will forward its' recommendations to the city council in Cctober. The council will then decide whether to forward the issue to the voters.
