Subd. 8. City formula aid. In calendar year 2004 and subsequent years, the formula aid for a city is equal to the need increase percentage multiplied by the difference between (1) the city's revenue need multiplied by its population, and (2) the sum of the city's net tax capacity multiplied by the tax effort rate, and the taconite aids under sections 298.28 and 298.282, multiplied by the following percentages:

(i) zero percent for aids payable in 2004;

(ii) 25 percent for aids payable in 2005;

(iii) 50 percent for aids payable in 2006;

(iv) 75 percent for aids payable in 2007; and

(v) 100 percent for aids payable in 2008 and thereafter.

No city may have a formula aid amount less than zero. The need increase percentage must be the same for all cities.

The applicable need increase percentage must be calculated by the Department of Revenue so that the total of the aid under subdivision 9 equals the total amount available for aid under section 477A.03 after the subtraction under section 477A.014, subdivisions 4 and 5.

Subd. 9. City aid distribution. (a) In calendar year 2002 and thereafter, each city shall receive an aid distribution equal to the sum of (1) the city formula aid under subdivision 8, and (2) its city aid base.

(b) The aid for a city in calendar year 2004 shall not exceed the amount of its aid in calendar year 2003 after the reductions under Laws 2003, First Special Session chapter 21, article 5.

(c) For aids payable in 2005 and thereafter, the total aid for any city shall not exceed the sum of (1) ten percent of the city's net levy for the year prior to the aid distribution plus (2) its total aid in the previous year. For aids payable in 2005 and thereafter, the total aid for any city with a population of 2,500 or more may not decrease from its total aid under this section in the previous year by an amount greater than ten percent of its net levy in the year prior to the aid distribution.

(d) For aids payable in 2004 only, the total aid for a city with a population less than 2,500 may not be less than the amount it was certified to receive in 2003 minus the greater of (1) the reduction to this aid payment in 2003 under Laws 2003, First Special Session chapter 21, article 5, or (2) five percent of its 2003 aid amount. For aids payable in 2005 and thereafter, the total aid for a city with a population less than 2,500 must not be less than the amount it was certified to receive in the previous year minus five percent of its 2003 certified aid amount.
