      (2) "Municipality" means any town, city, borough, consolidated town and city or consolidated town and borough;

      (b) The funds allocated in accordance with this section shall be distributed to each municipality pro rata on the basis of the following formula: The population of each town multiplied by the inverse of the adjusted equalized net grand list per capita of such town multiplied by the inverse of the per capita income of such town shall be the numerator of the fraction, and the resulting products shall be added together and the sum shall be the denominator of the fraction. Any city or borough not consolidated with the town in which it is located and any town containing such a city or borough shall share the allocation to such town on the basis of the following ratio: The total taxes levied in the previous fiscal year by such town, city or borough shall be the numerator of the fraction. The total taxes levied by the town and all cities or boroughs located within such town shall be added together, and the sum shall be the denominator of the fraction. Any such city or borough may, by vote of its legislative body, direct the Secretary of the Office of Policy and Management to reallocate all or a portion of the share of such city or borough to the town in which it is located.
