Local Liquor Excise Tax revenue is allocated to the City and the County based on the recommendations of the "LET Task Force" which is a committee comprised of City and County officials. Historically, the Task Force provided its recommendations to the City and the County prior to the beginning of the fiscal year in which the funds would be expended and the two entities could then incorporate those amounts into their respective budgets. This year, the Task Force was unable to reach agreement regarding the allocations for the current fiscal year (FY22) until it last met on April 5, 2022. Therefore, it was necessary to take $835K from general reserve to fund the operation of Gallup Detox.
The LET Task Force is recommending the following distribution for FY22:
*$835K to the City to pay for the operation of Gallup Detox
*$200K to the County to operate JJASC which provides juvenile case management and prevention programs
*$100K to the County to operate the County DWI program
*$100K to the County to pay for detox and substance abuse treatment in the jail
*$400K to the County to contract with Santa Fe Recovery to provide detox services
$1,635K TOTAL OF ALLOCATIONS
Past practice of the Task Force has been to limit the initial allocations for an upcoming fiscal year to no more than the total of (the carryover balance in the fund at the beginning of the current fiscal year) and (the projected total amount of Local LET revenue to be collected in the current fiscal year).
The Task Force was provided with the actual (rather than projected) revenue of $1,412,438.00 from FY21 While there is sufficient balance carried into FY 21 from FY20 to allow that amount to allocated this year, it is more than $300K higher than the average annual revenue for the past four years, Therefore, without significant increase in revenue, that amount will not available to distribute in the future.
The Joint Resolution is on the McKinley County Commissions agenda for its April 26 meeting.
