CORRECTION - MI-Connection Subsidy to be $3.0 million in FY2017

We originally incorrectly reported a deficit of $3.5 million.  Accordingto new information provided by the town the correct number is $3.0 million.  The below has been updated.

Based on numbers just confirmed from Town of Davidson Finance Director Pieter Swart, Davidson's total obligation to MI-Connection in the upcoming fiscal year starting July 1st will be $914, 902.

Under the current inter-local agreement with Mooresville, Davidson is responsible for 30% of the deficit.  That brings the total amount of subsidy required to $3.05 million.

Davidson's annual cash payment is capped at $1 million with Mooresville covering the rest.  Any amount not covered by Davidson accrues and the current amount owed Mooresville is $1.77 million.  Davidson currently has $1 million set asside towards this debt.

Improvement is always good, but there is still a long way to go.  At this rate of improvement, Davidson will owe the $1m per year for at least the next couple years (including FY2017) to cover current year debt each cycle and cover the unfunded $700k owed to Mooresville.  After that, the annual amount could drop significantly below $1m per year.

As reported earlier, Davidson will be discussing its upcoming budget on Tuesday.  Will be interesting to see how this plays into the discussion.
