City Council to review preliminary fiscal year 2013-14 budget

From page A4 | June 23, 2013 |

After a two-week postponement, the City Council finally will have an opportunity Tuesday to dive into the fiscal year 2013-14 budget, as department heads are scheduled to give presentations on their respective plans for the coming year and the associated costs within those proposals.

The council meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Chambers at City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd. It can be seen on Comcast Channel 16 and AT&T U-Verse Channel 99. It also can be streamed on the city’s website at www.cityofdavis.org/media.

Despite making progress with the city’s labor groups, City Manager Steve Pinkerton has asked each department to cut their budgets by between 5 and 8 percent over what they spent last year.

Though those cuts will not result in any layoffs in any of the departments.

Also worth noting, the council’s all funds budget will dramatically expand by $100 million this year, while the city bonds for tens of millions of dollars for its three major capital infrastructure projects.

This coming fiscal year, the city will begin paying off debt service on the $113 million Woodland-Davis Clean Water Agency surface water project, the $95 million wastewater treatment plant improvements project and the $25 million that the council approved to spend on road and bike path pavement.

The council Tuesday also will receive the proposed changes to the various fees that the city charges for all of the services it provides the community.

The full list of changes can be found on the city’s website under the City Council Meeting Agendas page.

Based on what the council adds or subtracts from this preliminary budget proposal, Pinkerton will return in two weeks at the council’s July 9 meeting with the first reading of ordinance to adopt the budget. The council, however, will not adopt the second reading until after it returns from recess in August.

This process will force the council to authorize a temporary appropriation to the city manager in the sum of $70 million to cover payroll and other expenses until the budget is formally effective in early fall.
