DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Marion County government. Specifies that after December 31, 2010, the controller of Indianapolis, rather than the Marion County auditor, is: (1) responsible for accounting, payroll, revenue and tax distributions, and maintenance of property records for all city and county departments, offices, and agencies; and (2) responsible for the issuance of warrants for payments from county and city funds. Transfers to the Marion County treasurer certain powers and duties of the Marion County auditor concerning property tax assessment, property tax collection, tax sales, filing of deduction and exemption applications, preparation of the tax duplicates, and carrying out duties related to petitions, remonstrances, and referenda on controlled projects. Provides that in determining the compensation of the county auditor for 2011 and thereafter, the city-county council shall consider the reduced duties and responsibilities of the county auditor.
