None o WORKSHOP 4.1 1996/97 Budget Workshop Town Council reviewed possible operating fund balances for the 1995/96 fiscal year. It is estimated that unspent funds of approximately $685,000 will be available this budget year for use on needed Town projects not identified in the 1995/96 budget. Several Town project needs were considered by the Town Council as presented by staff. It was further explained to the Town Council that this surplus of funds was a one time occurrence, which is not anticipated to occur in any future fiscal years. Town Council further discussed the need for road repair vs. the need for capital equipment. It was consensus of Council that a capital equipment plan should be produced prior to making a final decision on the use of budgetary surplus funds. Community Development Director Lashbrook asked Council for direction on pursuing the inclusion of Redevelopment Planning in the upcoming 1996/97 budget.

It was consensus of Council to have staff pursue the inclusion of a Redevelopment Plan in the 1996/97 fiscal budget.
