City Hall Notes That will bring to almost $6 million the amount of revenue sharing authorized in Cedar Rapids in the three years the program has been operating. Quite a windfall, all that extra cash, isn't it'.’ o • • NO. IT isn't, in the view of city officials. They think federal revenue sharing may be costing the city up to $2 million a year. The state and local fiscal assistance act of 1972. which provides for revenue sharing, was supposed to be “new money” given to cities and counties with less red tape than the old categorical grant system of federal funding. The idea, as it was explained prior to the act s passage. Mayor Don Canney said, was to give more flexibility in the use of the funds to local decision-makers. Local governments were assured the program would have no effect on existing programs. Cedar Rapids received its first revenue sharing check on IX'C. ll. 1972. I/ess than a month later (leorge Romney, then secretary of housing and urban development I HUD), made a speech in Houston and the roof fell in. Romney announced a series of freezes, suspensions and impoundments. One of the first effects noticed in Cedar Rapids involved an application for funds for the $3.5 million Kenwood ditch storm sewer project. “We had that application in, and boom, it came back to us,” said Intergovernmental Coordinator Tom Aller. • • • THE APPLICATION went back to the desk of Public Improvements Commissioner Richard Phillips, with a note saying, in effect, “We aren't funding that kind of thing anymore." At about the same time, applications for $75,000 for three open spaces programs came back. Later, a request for about $400,000 for land acquisition in the Vinton ditch project came back. Practically all the federal sources of funds for water pollution control, housing programs, water and sewer facilities and open spaces suddenly weren't sources of funds any longer. There is no way to directly lie revenue sharing to the cutbacks, Canney said, but it’s hard to believe the two are unrelated. The federal budget, like any other, has only so much money available. When a new program (revenue sharing) is created, calling for expenditures of about $6 billion per Mike Deupree Costing City Clements To Be Honored A public reception honoring I Clements served a stint at The Ralph Clements for 30 years of Gazette before joining the staff service on the public library at Stamats.

Only about 200 of these Asiatic lions, which closely resemble; their African counterparts, survive in the wild. year, the money has to come from somewhere. Part of Aller’s job is keeping tabs on pending legislation that might affect cities, and coordinating grant applications. • • • HE SAID the city was receiving about $4 million in federal f ii ii d s each year through categorical programs, and is now getting less than $2 million each year in revenue sharing. Besides the projects mentioned earlier, the HUD housing program funds were frozen. That put an end to plans for low-cost, subsidized housing for low-income families and elderly persons. Through continued efforts on the part of state KHA Director N'ate Ruben, money has become available for the elderly housing project. It will amount to about $169,000 per year in subsidies. But hopes for another 180 leased housing units for families, to supplement the 220 now in existence in Cedar Rapids, aren't too bright. An announcement was made last September that funding would be available for 300,000 units nationwide. But the new regulations covering availability of the funds haven’t been formulated yet, eight months later, so Cedar Rapids can’t even apply for them. Canney doesn't believe that’s accidental. “There have been 38 court cases involving impoundments,” the mayor said, “and the federal government lost 34 of them.” Rather than take a chance on impounding the funds and Iv released — but are effectively "impounded” by delays in writing the regulations. President Nixon has also impounded $9 billion in Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funds during the last three years. That’s half the amount auth o r i z e d by congress in the clean water act of 1972 which passed over Nixon’s veto. Tilt' funds are being slowly released now, but not all of them. Reimbursement grants from the impounded funds, for water pollution control projects, arc running about 211 months behind and are making up only about 50 percent of what was expected. And, of course, the urban renewal and neighborhood development program (NOP) projects have been ended. The replacement for urban renewal, NDP, open spaces, model cities and a host of other defunct programs is being created in congress now. It’s commonly referred to as special revenue sharing. The name of the bill, which was passed by the senate and is now in a house committee, is the community development act. The act is supposed to replace, with a “block” grant, the funds previously received through various categorical programs. The amount each city will receive is to be based on the average received through the other programs between 1968 and 1972. Sounds okay, until you take a close look at the formula for finding the average. Tile key, at least in the case of Cedar Rapids, is that the average is based on commitments made during that five-year period. • • • MOST large urban renewal projects across the country, including the two in Cedar Rapids, were committed prior to 1968. No credit will be received under special revenue sharing for urban renewal funds. What does that mean in dollars? The actual average yearly funds received by Cedar Rapids through those programs between 1968 and 1972 was about $3.85 million. Under the special revenue sharing formula, that will be replaced by about $1.4 million. What it boils down to is that with special revenue sharing and the gift of regular revenue sharing, the city will be receiving quite a bit less than it did before the congress got generous. The budget couldn’t stand too many gifts like that. (Next Sunday: How the revenue sharing funds are being used, and how the city council makes the decisions about where to use them.)
