Special Meeting June 19, 2013
The Enterprise City Council met in special session on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 for the purposes of Adopting the Final 2013-14 City of Enterprise Budget. Those present were Mayor Margie Shaw; Councilors Larry Christman, Bill Coffin, Laura Miller and Stacey Karvoski; Staff Michele Young, Wes Kilgore and Denine Rautenstrauch.
Michele Young presented the City of Enterprise final Budget Message:
FUND 10 - GENERAL FUND: This fund was reduced by $15,214.00 from the approved budget. The original proposal was $1,230,732, I balanced it to the expenditures as I thought we would make those funds. However, due to several changes in payroll due to two employees leaving and other costs associated with personal services that were unanticipated I had to reduce.
Our PERS contribution rate decreased at the last minute due to Legislative Action but I will want to see us create a set aside in the budget next year to begin budgeting for future PERS increases and a way to bring down the future unfunded balance we have with PERS.
Our revenues have been very flat and we have to begin thinking of ways to change that. Our fixed costs keep increasing and our ability to fund badly needed capital improvements such as parks, streets and equipment replacement is beginning to catch up with us.
Due to a lack of funds, I also removed capital improvement fund transfers except for the fire department and Historic Preservation Fund.
Because of the adjustments made in PERS any available savings I had I put in Park Improvements. You will see in the Parks Department an increases of almost $10,000.
FUND 15 - CAPITAL PROJECT - GENERAL: This fund decreased from the approved budget by $12,160 due to removing fund transfers from General fund
FUND 16 - CAPITAL PROJECT - ENTERPRISE FUNDS: This fund decreased by $30,710.00 due to moving expenditures from the Water Fund and Sewer fund to this fund to keep within approved budget.
FUND 20 - STATE TAX STREET: This fund increased by $18,000. We ended up spending less than anticipated and we received more revenue than anticipated. The difference went into Curb replacement.
FUND 30 - STATE REVENUE SHARING: No Change
FUND 40 - MOTEL TAX FUND: No changes other than a little increase due to more cash
FUND 50 - WATER FUND: This Fund increased by $25,800 mainly due to transfer of expenses to Fund 15 and more cash available. The increase was put in Contingency.
FUND 60 - SEWER FUND: This Fund increased by $9,800 due to more cash available. As with other funds, PERS adjustments helped as well. All increases went into ContingencFUND 80 -
FUND 80 - HISTORIC PRESERVATION FUND: No changes other than a little decrease in cash
