Alternative Revenue Task Force

The Bexley Alternative Revenue Task Force was formed in late 2011 in order to assist with identifying sources of and implementation plans for accumulating new non-tax revenue for the City of Bexley.  

Membership of the Task Force was formed based upon an open call for volunteers interested in researching alternative forms of revenue.  The residents who met to form the Task Force then voted from among them to appoint Jim Bowman as chair of the Task Force.

In late 2012, the Task Force provided a series of recommendations to City Council and the City adminstration to consider. As of January 2013, City Council and the administration are still in the proces of reviewing the recommendations and determining next steps.
