    Discussion: Mr. Kane asked why there is a decrease.

    Ms. Steffler said it is based on the general fund and all other funds’ daily balances. When those increase, then it brings the fee down. It is such a small percentage that is charged. It also depends on how large of a tax anticipation note is issued.
