City Manager’s Report


Presentation of the Proposed FY 2020 Budget


City Manager Knight summarized the proposed budget for FY 2020 with the 12th straight year he has proposed a budget that has the same 4.0923 millage rate. He stated the budget total this year is right over $176 million including everything. He stated the capital budget spending contains another $4 million; $15 million in unencumbered reserves if the budget is adopted with no modifications; contains

$931,000 in contingency that is more than the budget policy calls for so there is

about $296,000 available if the Commission wants to allotfunds to other projects or other functions and still meet the policy forthe general fund contingency. He stated the CRA funding is growing and the budget contains a net reduction of about four employees. He addressed each portion of the proposed budget as presented and answered questions of the Commission. Further discussion will take place later in the process. The two budget public hearings will be on September 9 and 23.
