1. Ordinances for Public Hearing
AEL&P has brought it to our attention that the expiration date of the emergency Cost of Power Equalization (COPA) sales tax exemption will create a customer inconsistency. Section 5.4 of the Charter provides that emergency ordinances shall expire 180 days after adoption. Ordinance 2008-17, adopted by the Assembly, exempted sales of COPA on electrical power, became effective on May 1, 2008, and will expire on October 28, 2008. Since AEL&P bills its customers daily, but on a monthly cycle, the customers who will be billed from October 28 through October 31 (4 days), will only receive the exemption for 5 months.
The Assembly Finance Committee, at its September 10, 2008 meeting, recommended this ordinance be drafted and forwarded to the Assembly for approval.
I recommend this ordinance be adopted.
