Wright, Town Manager, Jill Olsen, Administrative Services <br />Director; Tony Lashbrook, Community Development Director; Jon Lander, <br />Town Engineer; Tom Covey, Public Works Director; Dan Olsen, Animal <br />Control Supervisor; Tamara Blanton, Office Assistant; Dave Jacobsen, <br />Street Maintenance Supervisor; Marlin Garvin, Supervising Equipment <br />Mechanic; and Vicki Soderquist, Deputy Town Clerk <br /> <br />PUBLIC COMMENT - None <br /> <br />COUNCIL IMMEDIATE PRIORITIES <br />4.1 1998/99 Fiscal Year Budget Workshop - Mr. Wright stated the budget as presented was <br />fiscally positive and that the total income exceeded expenditures by $840,000. The excess revenues <br />were due to: 1) continuation for another two years of 3 X's Voter Rule; 2) revenues were higher than <br />anticipated; and 3) the carry forward of road money. The anticipated revenues and carry forward <br />were one-time revenues and it was not recommended that they be utilized for on-going expenditures. <br />Because of the significant amount staff proposed putting $500,000 into additional roadwork (which <br />was included in the CIP sheet for roadwork on non-backbone roads), added a set aside of $100,000 <br />for the Nevada County litigation, and put the balance in the Town Hall Reserve fund. It appeared <br />that the McIver property acquisition would be higher than budgeted so there could be a minor <br />adjustment to that account from the Town Hall Reserve fund or impact fees. The reserves were all <br />fully funded. The only personnel changes included a new Public Works mechanic, one new <br />dispatcher, and the change of the half time evidence technician to full time. <br /> <br />Councilmember McCormack questioned why the $12,000 vehicle reserve was in Transit and not on <br />the reserve page. Mrs. Olsen stated that it was clearer to leave the reserves in the Transit revenues, <br />but it would be added to reserves next year. Mr. Wright stated it was an estimate at the present time. <br />Two public policy options available would be to make a finding that all transit needs had been met <br />and transfer the reserves to road maintenance or put the reserves in an equipment replacement fund. <br /> <br />Revenues - Mr. Wright stated projections on the TOT were conservative and was dependent upon <br />when the hotel came on-line. The Motor Vehicle In-lieu fees were a reasonable projection. The <br />State was looking at taking those away, but staff felt the figures were reasonable for the present <br />budget. The Building & Safety transfer was going up because of the determination in the MSI study <br />which identified the percentage at 24% versus the 20% set aside in past. RDA Reimbursement <br />would be a transfer back to the General Fund but would be a cash flow issue; the Town would not <br /> <br /> <br />
