DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Indianapolis-Marion County issues. Provides that the consolidated law enforcement department of a county having a consolidated city is a division of the department of public safety under the direction and control of the director of public safety. Allows the mayor of a consolidated city to reduce or modify separate items of an ordinance appropriating money or levying a tax. (Under current law, the mayor may approve or veto separate items of only an ordinance appropriating money or levying a tax.) Eliminates the requirement that the city-county council approve the director and deputy director appointments of the mayor of the consolidated city. Eliminates provisions that allow the city-county council to require the capital improvement board of managers to make payments in lieu of taxes (PILOTS) for deposit in the consolidated county fund. Allows the mayor of a consolidated city to appoint two additional members to the metropolitan development commission, and eliminates the appointments of the county board of commissioners (consisting of the county treasurer, county auditor, and county assessor). Allows the controller of the consolidated city and county to allot amounts appropriated to an office, department, or agency of the consolidated city or county.
