Fiscal Impact
Cost: -0-
Budgeted (yes or no): No
Where Budgeted (department/program): General Fund Revenue
Additional Fiscal Notes:
There is no change anticipated in general fund revenues this fiscal year based on the modification of fees since currently all utilities which own facilities in the ROW pay over $4,000 annually and utilities which do not own facilities in the ROW will continue to pay 5% of the gross revenues (typically under $700 annually).

Tigard anticipates $5.8 million will be received in this fiscal year (ending 6/30/15) from franchise/ rights-of-way fees.  About $3.4 million of that will come from electric, gas and telecommunication utility providers.
