Purpose:

Assess municipalities for a portion of the costs incurred by the Department of Environmental Protection in monitoring air pollution levels and enforcing air quality standards at industrial, commercial, and institutional facilities.

How were the assessments determined?

Each municipality's share of the assessments is apportioned 50% on population and 50% on EQVs. Current year assessments are calculated using the 7/1/04 US Census Estimates and the proposed 2004 EQVs.

Why did the assessments change?

Assessments should not change between budget proposals.
