Emergency Management Agency Funding by Countywide Special Levy Emergency Management Agency Funding by Countywide Special Levy HOT

In this paper, an all too common set of challenges and difficulties will be identified, related to the funding of emergency management by a “countywide special levy.” There will also be detailed documentation referencing Iowa Code sections related to defining emergency management and its mechanisms for funding in order to identify the foundational principle that a local emergency management commission is a separate governmental subdivision with the authority to establish a budget that will be funded as established and approved by the commission in a collaborative process including all member jurisdictions of the commission.

A workable strategy will be presented in an inclusive process that will mitigate previously experienced challenges and foster a stronger partnership between identified certifying and levying boards.
