Section 5709.50 | Regional transportation improvement project fund.
(A) The governing board of a regional transportation improvement project that grants a tax exemption under section 5709.48 of the Revised Code shall establish a regional transportation improvement project fund into which shall be deposited service payments in lieu of taxes distributed under section 5709.49 of the Revised Code. Money in the regional transportation improvement project fund shall be used by the governing board for the purposes described in the resolution creating the transportation financing district. Money in the regional transportation improvement project fund shall be administered by the governing board in accordance with the requirements of section 5595.08 of the Revised Code and may be invested as provided in section 5595.09 of the Revised Code.
(B) The regional transportation improvement project fund is dissolved by operation of law upon the dissolution of the associated regional transportation improvement project under section 5595.13 of the Revised Code. Any incidental surplus remaining in the fund, to the extent unencumbered, shall be divided and distributed by the county treasurer of the most populous county in which the district is located to the general funds of the subdivisions and taxing units in which the district is located. The surplus revenue shall be divided proportionally based on the property tax levy revenue foregone by each such subdivision and taxing unit due to the exemption of improvements to property within the district at the most recent collection of service payments in lieu of taxes. The division of revenue shall account for amounts returned to subdivisions and taxing units through compensation agreements entered into under division (E) of section 5709.48 of the Revised Code. The amount distributed to each subdivision or taxing unit shall be apportioned among its funds as if that amount had been levied and collected as taxes and distributed in the most recent settlement of taxes.
