Re: 2021 Budget Approval


Dear Council Members,


During the 2021 Budget Hearing and presentation for first reading on September 8th, council members raised questions and offered recommendations for modification of certain line items in the budget. This memorandum provides responses to those issues that were not fully addressed on the floor and/or need further clarification. In summary, the proposed changes:


- Reduce engineering fees from $25,000 to $5,000

- Reduce financial advisor fees from $25,000 to $5,000

- Add a line item for Council promotions of $10,000

- Add a Sports Director position in the Parks Department at $25,000

- Add a line item in the Parks budget for sport camps at $8,000

- And reduce the base pay salary of police officers by $1,000 each for a total reduction of $17,330.


I would like to address each of these proposed changes and make a formal recommendation for proceeding in the budget process:
