Section 13.g. of the ILA is hereby amended to read as follows: <br /> g. Cost Allocation and Cost Recovery Principles. The PORTAL AGENCY budget <br /> shall be generally allocated between all Participating Cities based on the number of <br /> Transactions processed for each City on the Portal. In years 2014 through 2024, the <br /> number of Transactions for the Original Principals shall be based on 2012 historical <br /> actual pre-Portal use Transaction Counts(as set forth in Exhibit A). In years 2014 through <br /> 2021, the City Transaction Count for any other Participating City shall be based on the <br /> most recent historical data for that City prior to it joining the Portal. From and after 2022, <br /> the allocation among other Participating Cities will be determined by considering the <br /> actual number of Transactions (f the City had joined before 2022), historical tax and <br /> license information, and the experience of the Original Principals as to how quickly <br /> businesses have adopted use of the Portal since its launch. The details of the cost allocation <br /> calculation shall be set forth in the Portal Operations Policy. Nothing in this Agreement <br /> shall be construed to prohibit the Executive Boardfrom including factors in addition to the <br /> number of City Transactions in the cost allocation formulas as between Participating <br /> Cities, so long as the primary basis for allocation remains the City Transaction count. <br /> 2. All other terms of the ILA remain in full force and effect. <br /> // <br /> Page 1 of 3 <br />
