None. <br /> <br />COUNCIL IMMEDIATE PRIORITIES <br />5.1 1996/97 Fiscal Year Budget Workshoo. The Town Council reviewed all revenue pages and agreed <br /> that the revenues should not reflect any anticipated rental income fxom currently vacant CDD office <br /> space. The Council also reviewed the General Government Services Budget and the Visitors Center <br /> Budget. Discussion included a desire to see the Visitors Center reach a point within two years where <br /> it would be capable of paying market rent for the space being leased at the Depot -- thus not causing <br /> the General Fund to subsidize Visitors Center operations. <br /> <br />The Council spent the rest of the workshop reviewing the road maintenance and snow removal <br />staffing issues comparing the various pros and cons of permanent versus temporary staffmg. <br />Consensus was reached that regardless of the staffing option selected, Council desired to have an <br />implemented measurement plan in place to be able to measure actual benefits of any change in <br />staffing. Councilmembers requested additional staff analysis of this issue. Councilmember Cross <br />indicated a desire to know since the costs of labor were increasing in snow removal, would the Town <br />be receiving a comparable level of service increase for that expenditure. At this time, Street <br />Superintendent Eric Sharer expressed his concern that the Council was taking too much time in <br />making this decision and that they were being "anal retentive" in their desire for more information. <br />When asked by Councilmember Cross if he (Cross) correctly heard Mr..Shafer's statement that he <br />as a Councilmember was "anal rententive", Mr. Shafer responded that yes, that was what he was <br />saying. <br /> <br />Councilmember Cross briefly lef~ the room and Town Manager Wright suggested that the workshop <br />be continued to a future date when further staff analysis could be provided. Councilmember Cross <br />returned to the room and the Council continued to request additional analysis for consideration prior <br />to budget adoption, and therefore agreed to adjourn this meeting to 4:30 PM, July 18, 1996 for <br />consideration of snow/road staffmg and transit. <br /> <br /> <br />
