§ 21-29-29. Discontinuance, reduction, or reassessment of taxes.
When the amount of funds derived from the tax levied pursuant to Section 21-29-27 is sufficient to care for current needs, requirements, and necessities, the governing body of said municipality is authorized, empowered and directed to discontinue entirely or reduce the tax rate herein provided until such time as financial necessity creates a demand for the reassessment of said tax.

The governing body of the municipality may take action only upon certification from the Board of Trustees of the Public Employees’ Retirement System.
