[2A. Discuss FY2021 Proposed Budget.]

WE IS ONE ITEM THAT IS 2A, DISCUSS FY2021 PROPOSED BUDGET. GOOD EVENING BRIAN AND WENDI

AND -- ROBERT. >> COUNCIL, GOOD EVENING WE GOT NEWS TO DISCUSS FIRST BEFORE WE GET INTO THE -- DETAILS. AS YOU KNOW ONE OF THE THINGS WE START OFF WITH IS TO WORK THROUGH THE BUDGET BOOK THAT WAY IF THERE ARE QUESTIONS THIS COUNCIL HAD AS THEY REVIEWED THE DOCUMENT A LOT OF TIMES YOU HIGHLIGHT THINGS AND CIRCLE THINGS AND MAKE NOTES.

THAT'S WHERE WE HAVE A CHANCE TO HAVE A DIALOGUE. BUT -- WE HAVE UPDATED PROPERTY TAX NUMBERS AND SO UNTIL WE HAVE THIS DISCUSSION THEN -- IT WILL COVER EVERYTHING ELSE:LAURA, IF SHE WILL PULL OUT THE POWER POINT -- SO THAT I WILL BE ABLE TO WALK IT THROUGH GUYS.

AND WE GET OUT OF THIS I WILL TURN IT OVER TO WENDI. SO AS YOU KNOW PROPERTY TAXES THIS YEAR WAS A BIG CHALLENGE. AT THE TIME WE RECEIVED THE CERTIFIED ESTIMATE ON JULY 25TH, THERE WAS STILL A HUGE NUMBER OF PROTESTS ABOUT 20,000 PROSECUTE TESTS MORE THEN AND THERE LEFT YEAR. 170,000 PROTEST THIS IS YEAR INSTEAD OF 150,000.

AND BECAUSE OF COVID-19 AND OTHER CHALLENGES, IT MEANT THAT THERE WAS ABOUT 893 MILLION DOLLARS IN PROTEST VALUES THAT WERE UNRESOLVED BY JULY 25TH AND SO -- A MONTH LATER WE CAN GIVE YOU AN UPDATE. GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, SO, WHEN THAT OCCURRED, THE THING THAT WE KIND OF SHARED WITH COUNCIL I THINK IT WAS AUGUST THENTH, WAS THAT -- WHAT THEY DO IS THEY DON'T PUT ANY I'M TALKING ABOUT -- THE CALCULATION THEY DON'T PUT VALUE IN THE CERTIFIED VALUE. SO -- AS YOU LOOK AT THE IN THE YELLOW COLUMN THE 2021 CERTIFIED RATE, WAS LOW ARE THAN THE CERTIFIED RATE FOR THE CURRENT YEAR BECAUSE 91 OF THE 893 MILLION IS ALLOWED UNDER STATE LUTO SHOW UP IN THE CERTIFIED VALUE.

THEN WHEN THAT I WILL GET TO THE CALCULATIONS BELOW TO GET TO THE NO NEW REVENUE RATE AND ROLL BACK RATE, THEN THEY ARE ONLY ALLOWED USE THE LOWEST NUMBER. IN OTHER WORDS THIS IS TYPICALLY WHAT THE TAXPAYER WHO IS PROSECUTE TESTING THE AMOUNT WOULD SAY.

SO, YOU KNOW, THEIR ESTIMATE OF THE VALUE WAS 893 MILLION. TAXPAYER'S CLAIMED IT WAS 474 MILLION. SO, THERE IS A HUGE SWING IN THIS.

SO, WHEN WE TOLD COUNCIL AT THIS TIME -- WAS THAT WE WERE GOING TO BASE OUR THE CEILING THE HIGHEST NUMBER YOU WERE WILLING TO CONSIDER AND THE REVENUE RED LIGHT AND THE OTHER CALCULATIONS BASED ON THAT ESTIMATE. HOWEVER, WE PROPOSED A BUDGET ON THE BASIS OF TRYING TO ESTIMATE WHAT REALLY WOULD HAPPEN TO THAT 893 MILLION. AND COUNCIL, YOU REMEMBER, WE CALCULATED TWO SCENARIOS ONE 80% WOULD BE UPHELD AND ANOTHER ONE TO A CERTAIN THIS 90% UPHELD.

AND SO, WE CALCULATED THAT AND THEN WE THAT WAS THE INFORMATION WE HAD.

TODAY, WE HAVE UPDATED NUMBERS. NEXT SLIDE. .

[00:05:03]

UM -- OKAY. AT THIS POINT, AT THIS POINT, WE WERE HOPING TO LOWER THE TAX RATE BOY 1 PENNY. NEXT SLIDE. OKAY.

SO WHAT WE KNOW TODAY IS THERE IS STILL 280 MILLION DOLLARS IN TAXABLE VALUE UNDER PROTESTS.

AND THEN WE WILL WORK THROUGH HATHIS MEANS. NEXT SLIDE.

OKAY. SO -- WHAT THIS MEANS IS, IS -- I WILL HAVE TO SHRINK MY --

BOXES HERE. >> OKAY. SO -- AT THIS POINT, OUT OF THE 5 HUH HAD BEEN MILLION DOLLARS THAT HAS BEEN RESOLVED IN WHATEVER FASHION, THE -- UPHELD ABOUT 94% OF THAT. THAT MEANS THEN THE VALUE THAT WAS UNDER PROTEST THIS IS NOW SHIFTED TO THE CERTIFIED VALUE, COMPARED TO IF YOU REMEMBER THE 5.115 BILLION DOLLARS IS 5.591 AND 94 UPHELD MEANING THEN THAT ONLY 6% OF THE VALUE WAS AFFECTED BY THE ACTUAL TAXABLE PROTEST THAT IS NOT UNUSUAL. THEY TOLD US TO ESTIMATE 80 TO 90% UPHELD AND IN THE FIRST 500 MILLION OR SO ABOUT 94% HAS BEEN UPHELD. SO, WELL IS ABOUT THREE 58 MILLION UNSOLVED FOR. THE LOWER NUMBER THAT IN OTHER WORDS OUT OF THE REMAINING -- TAXPAYERS HO WERE PROTESTING THEY ARE CLAIMING THAT VALUE SHOULD BE 280 MILLION.

AND CLAIMING IT SHOULD BE 358 MILLION. AT THIS POINT, WHEN WEMENT TO DISCUSS WITH COUNCIL IS HOW THESE NEW NUMBERS WOULD FLUSH OUT.

SO -- ALTHOUGH WE HAD THE DISCUSSION FOR THE CERTIFIED RATE ON AUGUST 13TH WE HAVE NOT PUBLISHED THOSE RATES. AND SO -- WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY NOW TO PUB LABOR THE REESTIMATE AND HOPEFUL LOW THAT'S WHERE WE'LL END UP WE WANT TO WALK THROUGH THE DISCUSSIONS WITH YOU FIRST.

NEXT SLIDE. SO, YOU CAN SEE THAT IN THE SECOND COLUMN THE YELLOW COLUMN, THAT THE NO NEW REVENUE RATE WAS -- 78, 79, 35. COUNCIL APPROVED THAT AS YOUR CEILING. AND KNOWING THAT THAT RATE WAS -- DID NOT INCLUDE THE 893

MILLION DOLLARS. >> AND SO00 AUTOPROPOSED RATE WAS PENALTY 747343 AND THEN THE REESTIMATE DOES DROP THAT NUMBER BECAUSE WE NOW SAW FOR 500 MILLION OR SO OF THAT NUMBER THEN THE IF WE WERE TO RECALCULATE TODAY -- IF WE KNEW IT TODAY VERSUS WHAT WE DID ON JULY 25TH, THE NO NEW REVENUE RATE WOULD HAVE BEEN 7774057, WHICH IS THAT FIRST NUMBER AND VOTER APPROVAL RATE 789359. THAT AFFECTS OUR INS RATE. INSIDE OF LOWERING THE RATE BY I PENNY WE COULD CONSIDER LOWERING THE TAX RATE UP TO 1.6 CENTS AND WE WILL DISCUSS WHAT THAT WOULD MEAN. NEXT SLIDE. OF SO, IN TERMS OF REVENUE.

OUR PROPOSED BUDGETED HAVE ASSUMED WE WOULD HAVE SOLVED FOR THE 893 MILLION.

SO THE GENERAL FUND WOULD HAVE BEEN 27 MILLION DOLLARS. AND -- IF INSTEAD WE PUBLISHED THE NEW ESTIMATE BASED ON THE CERTIFIED VALUE WE KNOW TODAY. ASSUMING THAT AT THIS POINT WE DON'T KNOW WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO THE 358 MILLION, THEN YOU CAN SEE THAT IS ABOUT 1.1 MILLION DOLLARS REDUCTION IN REVENUE. WHAT WE KNOW IS THAT THAT 358 MILLION DOLLARS IS GOING TO BE RESOLVED SOMEHOW BY THE END OF THE YEAR. GUYS WE HAVE THE SAME CONVERSATION WE HAD EARLIER IN AUGUST WHERE WE KNEW AT SOME POINT THE 893 MILLION DOLLARS WILL BE RESOLVED ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. SO, WHAT WE BELIEVE IS THAT --

[00:10:05]

THATTEEN BEING CONSERVATIVE AND IF WE ONLY RECEIVED ADDITIONAL 280 MILLION THERE WOULD BE ADDITIONAL REF NOWS OF 1 PENALTY 4 MILLION DOLLARS FOR THE GENERAL FUND AND THE DEBT SERVICE FUND ABOUT 608 MILLION DOLLARS. SO WHAT THAT DOES THE NET AFFECT COMPARED TO THE PROPOSED BUDGET FOR THE GENERAL FUND IS OVER TH THREE 300 THOUSAND DOLLARS. IF WE WERE TO GO WITH THE LOWER NO NEW REVENUE RATE BASED ON THE REESTIMATE, THEN THE TAXED PROPERTY TAX REVENUE WOULD DROP FROM THE 27.2 MILLION WE PROPOSED TO 26.1 MILLION. BUT WE KNOW THAT THE 358 MILLION WILL BE RESOLVED IN SOME WAY SO IF WE ASSUME THAT IT VERY MINIMUM THE 280 MILLION DOLLARS OF THAT WOULD BE SOLVED FOR AND WE WOULD RETAIN THAT VALUE. THERE WILL BE ADDITIONAL REVENUES AND THE NET AFFECT OF ALL OF THAT IS 312 THOUSAND DOLLARS MORE. OKAY.

SO TO MAY BE HELP WALK THROUGH THIS... SO. THE APPRAISAL DISTRICT SAYS THE VAULT PROPERTY IS THREE 58 MILLION. TAXPAYER PROSECUTE TESTING ARE IS 280 MILLION. SO IF WE USE THE LOWER OF THE NET AFFECT BETWEEN THE PROPOSED BUDGET AND THE REESTIMATE, WOULD BE A NET 312 THOUSAND DOLLARS MORE IN THE GENERAL FUND.

AND -- A TAD MORE IN THE DEBT SERVICE FUND. IF, INSTEAD, WE, COUNCIL HAS A CHOICE OF WHAT TAX RATE IT WANTS TO APPROVE. AND SO -- WE ARE NOT OBLIGATED TO ANY NUMBER OTHER THAN THE FACT THIS WE CAN'T GO ABOVE THAT CEILING -- THERE COULD STILLEEN IF WE WERE TO LOWER THIS A BIT LESS, SAY A PENNY AND A HALF. IT COULD BE ABOUT 77 THOUSAND DOLLARS MORE. THE REASON I BRING THIS UP IS THAT AS WE START TO DISCUSS WHAT THIS MEANS IN THE PROPOSED BUDGET COMING UP, IF YOU GO BACK, LAURA, MIGHT BE TWO SLIDES. THE NEXT SLIDE. YEA.

HERE. SO, IF WE WERE TO ADOPT THE LOWER NO NEW REVENUE RATE OR SOMEWHERE AROUND THAT, THEN WE STILL KNOW THAT WE WOULD STILL HAVE ADDITIONAL PROPERTY TAX REVENUE AND IN THAT COME DOWN TO THE CHOICES THAT WE HAVE FOR TONIGHT.

AND -- I WANTED TO MAKE SURE YOU HAD THIS INFORMATION BECAUSE WHAT I BEFORE WE -- DISCUSS THE REST OF THE BUDGET BECAUSE WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO DO WHAT STAFF IS RECOMMENDING IS HATHAT FOR THURSDAY NIGHT YOU RESET YOUR TAX SEALING AND THIS WE PUB LABOR THE NEW NUMBERS BECAUSE NOW WE HAVE BETTER INFORMATION. DOES THIS MAKE SENSE SO FAR? YOU WANT TO GET RID OF THE PRESENTATION AND BRING EVERYBODY UP? I THROUGH A LOT AT YOU.

>> I SAW THIS EARLIER I HAD TIME TO ADJUST AND ABSORB IT. I WILL BE QUIET FOR A BIT AND

LET Y'ALL SHOOT QUESTIONS AND UNDERSTAND IT. >> THE BOTTOM LINE THIS IS GOOD NEWS.

EARLIER THIS SUMMER -- SORRY. GO AHEAD, I'M SORRY. GI WAS GOING TO SAY EARLIER THIS SUMMER WE THOUGHT THAT -- OVER ALL BASED ON THE INCREASE IT COULD BE A PENNY AND A HALF.

AND THEN WHEN WE GOT THE CERTIFIED ESTIMATE IN THE 900 MILLION DOLLARS THROUGH US OFF AND THEN THAT WAS WHEN WE SAID, WELL, YOU KNOW MAY BE IT IS ONLY A PENNY BUT WE COULD DO MORE.

>> COUNCIL, WHAT QUESTIONS, COMMENTS DO YOU HAVE? SORRY.

I SAID QUESTIONS TWICE. >> COUNCILMEMBER BROWN: IT ALL BOTTOM LINE, WOULD AD 300,000 TO

[00:15:01]

THE GENERAL FUND? WOULD THE IF WE ADDED ANOTHER HALF CENT OR.6 TO LOWERING THE TAX RATE THAT WE PUBLISHED WOULD THAT BASICALLY WIPE OUT THE 300,000?

>> NO THAT IS ASSUMING WE WOULD LOWER IT. >> COUNCILMEMBER BROWN: I SEE, OKAY IT IS OVER 500,000 NOW. I CAN'T REMEMBER THE NUMBER. DO YOU?

IO546,000. ALMOST 550. >> COUNCILMEMBER: YOU KNOW I WOULD THINK YOU KNOW I LIKE TO BE CONSERVATIVE IF WE COULD LOWER THE TAX RATE ANOTHER HALF CENT THAT WOULD BE GREAT FOR THE PROPERTY OWNERS. AND I THINK THAT MAY BE THAT COULD CALCULATE THAT AND UNDERSTAND IT BETTER. I WHEN YOU GET INTO -- I DON'T KNOW I LIKE ROUND NUMBERS 1.5 SOUNDS GOOD TO ME. THAT'S WHAT I HAD SUGGESTS TO BRIAN TODAY WHEN I WAS GOING THROUGH ALL OF THIS. I DON'T LIKE, I MEAN, 1.6 IS THE

NEW TAX RATE BUT THAT IS HARD TO UNDERSTAND. >> AND IT FEELS LIKE IN A WAY IT MIGHT BE TOO CLOSE. WE DON'T KNOW HOW IT WILL ALL PAN OUT AND I THINK I WOULD FEEL

MORE COMFORTABLE WITH 1.5 IF STAFF IS COMFORTABLE WITH THAT. >> THERE IS ALSO -- POTENTIAL UP

SIDE AFTER THAT. WAIT. >> ABSOLUTELY.

>> YEA. >> ARE WE SUGGESTING -- INSTEAD OF 1.6 IT WOULD BE 1.5?

AM I HEARING THIS CORRECTLY. >> DO YOU DECREASE THE TAX RED LIGHT BY 1.6 OR 1.5 THAT'S WHAT MARTHA WAS SAYING. I WAS MAKING SURE THAT WAS I WAS HEARING.

>> THAT EVEN GOING TO 1.5 -- BRING IN HOW MUCH ADDITIONAL REVENUE VERSUS THE BUDGET YOU

PREPARED, BRIAN? >> ABOUT 70,000, MAYOR. >> MAYOR: 310 PLUS.

>> YES. THREE 89, I THINK. OKAY.

>> MAYOR: BECAUSE OF THE RESOLUTION OF THE TAX VALUES TO DATE, THERE IS A NEW THE BOTTOM LINE IS THERE IS A NEW CALCULATION OF THE NO NEW TAX RATE.

THAT TODAY WOULD BE 1.6 CENTS LESS THAN OUR CURRENT TAX RATE. AND THAT WOULD STILL RESULT IN ADDITIONAL GENERAL FUND REVENUE VERSUS THE BUDGET THAT BRIAN PREPARED.

GOTCHA. IF WE WENT LESS BONT 5 THE ADDITIONAL REVENUE AVAILABLE REGARDLESS, IS THE NUMBER THAT BRIAN OR WENDI SAID. SAY IT AGAIN.

>> 389,000, MAYOR. >> MAYOR: WHAT YOU GOTTA ALSO UNDERSTAND WELL IS STILL 280

THOUSAND UNRESOLVED SO THAT 280 COULD ALSO INCREASE. >> YEP.

>> MAYOR: 280 VERSUS THE 358. THE APPRAISAL FOR ALL THE PROTESTS UNDER PROTEST, THE APPRAISAL DISTRICT SAID THE VALUES ARE 358 MILLION THE CITIZENS SAY 258 MILLION.

WHEN WE ARE CALCULATING NOW WE WOULD ADD THE 280 MILLION DOLLARS LEVEL.

>> IT IS A MORE CONSERVATIVE APPROACH. SIMPLY BECAUSE THERE IS STILL PIECES AND ELEMENTS WE DON'T KNOW YET. SO -- THAT -- THAT PIECE CALCULATING THE 280 INSTEAD OF THE 3 WHATEVER IT WAS. THAT GETS US TO THE 389,000 WITH THE 1.5 WE ARE ALMOST GUARANTEED TO HAVE MORE BECAUSE WE ARE BEING CONSERVATIVE.

>> OKAY. I SUGGESTED WHAT WENDI AND I AND STAFF DISCUSSED IS WHEN -- WHEN WE DO WHEN THE TRUE DUST SETTLES. WELL IS STILL MOVING PARTS TO THIS. WE DON'T KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE GOING TO CLAIM THE TAX CEILING, FOR EXAMPLE, FOR THE SENIOR OVER 65 OR DISABLED. SO THERE ARE MOVING PART ANDS WE

[00:20:01]

WILL NOT KNOW THAT UNTIL. EARLY OCTOBER. SO -- WHAT WE WILL FIGURED WE WOULD DO THEN IS WE ONCE THE DUST SETTLED WE KNOW THE FINAL NUMBER WE COME BACK AND MAKE THE FINAL DECISIONS THERE. BUT WE CAN'T DO THAT IF WE DO ANYTHING TO THE TAX RATE HAVE

YOU TO DO IT NOW. >> RIGHT. >> BUT WE CAN AMEND THE BUDGET

LATER BUT NOT THE TAX RATE LATER. >> LIKE LAST YEAR.

>> COUNCILMEMBER BROWN: LIKE LAST YEAR >> RIGHT.

>> WHEN DO WE EXPECT THE COUNT TOW RESOLVE THIS THREE 80. >> THE END OF ASSESSMENT.

GENERAL LIE, WE GET OUR LETTER AT FROM DALLAS COUNTY WITH THE FINAL NUMBERS AND FINAL, FINAL OF ALL FINAL NUMBERS. AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER OR EARLY IN OCTOBER.

>> USUALLY THE MIDDLE OF OCTOBER. THE 15TH AND 17TH OF OCTOBER.

>> SO, YEA. WE COME BACK WITH REVISED BUDGET AFTER THAT.

>> WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IS HAWE WOULD EXPECT THEN TO HAVE A BIT OF EXTRA MONEY.

COME BECOME TO COUNCIL AND SAY, YOU KNOW, HERE ARE OPTIONS. WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO, AT

THAT POINT. >> YEA SO TO ME I FEEL LIKE WE ARE IN A GOOD SPOT T. IS A WIN/WIN I BELIEVE WE CAN LOWER THE TAX RATE MORE THAN WHAT WE PROPOSED AND STILL BE AIL TO LOOK AT A BAPTIST EXTRA MONEY THIS YEAR AND POSSIBLE LOW AS WE GET TO THE END OF THE YEAR, WHAT WE WOULD DO BECAUSE YOU KNOW AS YOU KNOW THERE ARE THINGS WE HAVE CUT OR TAKEN OFF THE TABLE FOR DISCUSSION PURPOSES. THAT WE COULD PERHAPS RESTORE AT SOME POINT.

I DON'T THINK WE WANT TO DO THIS UNTIL WE KNOW THE FINAL NUMBERS. HOW MUCH WOULD IT AD IF WE REDUCE TODAY BOY A PENNY? IF WE REDUCED THE WHOLE RATE BY A PENNY? YES BY A PENNY, HOW MUCH WOULD THAT AD BACK IN. IF WE STAYED AT THE ORIGINAL TAX RATE THAT THE PROPOSED BUDGET INCLUDE THAT BRIAN ORIGINALLY HAS IN THE PROPOSED BUDGET IT IS ALMOST A PENNY. THAT WOULD AD AN ADDITIONAL, C IF WE ASH COUNT FOR THE 280 MILLION VALUE LIKE WE NEAR THIS SITUATION, IT WOULD AD 439,000.

HANG ON THAT DOES IN THE MAKE SENSE YOU TOLD MOW A WHOLE PENNY IS 5 HUNDRED AND SOME,000 AND HALF A PEN SE250ISH AND ADDING BACK.6. THAT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE.

THIS MAKES MORE SENSE TAMMY. >> I THINK THE PER PENNY VALUE CHANGES POSSIBLE LOW BUT THE DEBT RATE WOULD STAY THE TIME.220 THREE 10 THE MNO RATE DOWN DOWN --

550, WENDI, RIGHT? I MEAN AS A PLUG NUMBER? >> YES.

>> WHICH IS -- ADDITIONAL. HERE IS THE PROBLEM. ANY NUMBER WE CHANGE, CHANGES 5 OTHERS. SO. BUT --

>> MY POINT IS THAT -- I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND GETTING CLOSE TO THE NO NEW REVENUE RATE AND WE ARE GIVING UP A LOT. WE'LL NOT GIVE RAISE THIS IS YEAR.

WE WILL HAVE ADDITIONAL BUSTS NEXT YEAR. NEXT YEAREL BE UP AGAINST A CAP UNLESS WE WANT TO FIGHT THE WHOLE SDAFLTER THING WITH COVID-19 MEAN TELLING BE HARDER FOR US TO CATCH UP. IF WE COULD PREPAY THINGS THIS YEAR BECAUSE OF SAVINGS WE'LL HAVE AND ALSO PRESERVE THAT HALF A % FOR 3-1/2% TO NEXT YEAR. NO ONE, I WANT TOP 3 IT OUT THERE. WORTH DISCUSSION. JOWL KNOW MAST, ONE THING I WAS THINKING ABOUT IS -- YOU KNOW COULD WE COME BECOME IN JANUARY ONCE WE HAVE THE CERTIFIED TAX VALUES AND WE KNOW MORE ABOUT THE ECONOMIC DOWNTURN AND WE KNOW MORE ABOUT IF YOU KNOW THE

[00:25:07]

VACCINE IS IN PLACE. AND WE JUST HAVE A BIT MORE SECURITY AND UNDERSTANDING OF FISCAL 2021. AND MAKE SOME STAFFING DECISIONS IT'S THAT POINT.

YOU KNOW -- DO YOU FILL AN OPEN POSITION OR TWO. DO YOU GIVE SOME RAISES.

YOU KNOW ACROSS THE BOARD. I JUST FEEL LIKE -- MAY BE WE KNOW A BIT MORE COME FIRST QUARTER? AND WILL WOULD BE A LITTLE BIT MORE FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE.

>> WE HAVE TO SET THE TAX RATE NOW. I UNDERSTANDS THAT PART BUT ALSO SAVING HALF A % AND THREE AND A HALF % CAP NEXT YEAR COULD BE -- THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN US HAVING TO HAVE AN ELECTION AND NOT HAVING AN ELECTION FOR TO YOUS PLAY CATCH UP.

>> WE ALREADY IMPLEMENTED THE 8% CAP. NOT REQUIRING AN ELECTION.

SO I CAN'T IMAGINE WE WOULD GO OVER THE 8%. >> NO.

I COULDN'T ARE EITHER. GOOD POINT. >> MAYOR: I HAVE GONE WHEN BRIAN SHARED THIS WITH ME I HAVE GONE BACK AND FORTH OF YOU KNOW. BUT WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE BUDGET REVIEW HE IS LAYING OUT INFORMATION THAT IS NEW. WE GOTTA GO THROUGH THE BUDGET REVIEW AND COME BACK TO THIS DECISION POINT? RIGHT? YES. MARTH AWE HAVE YOUR HANDS UP OR --

>> COUNCILMEMBER BROWN: NO, I'M SORRY I THOUGHT I LOWERED IT. ANY OTHER DISCUSSION YOU WANT TO HAVE RIGHT NOW? YOU WANT TO LIKE START PLANNING THROUGH THE BUDGET AND COME BACK? THAT IS -- WHAT BRIAN? I WAS GOING TO SAY.

MAYOR I THINK WE SHOULD DO THIS. YOU KNOW I DON'T LIKE TO PIN YOU INTO UNTIL DOWN UNTIL WE'LL HAVE THE INFORMATION WE KNEW THAT THIS WAS IMPORTANT THAT YOU HAVE THE INFORMATION UP FRONT.

OTHER THING IS WHAT WE WOULD LO TOIK DO AND MAY BE IF WE CAN POLISH OFF THE GOVERNMENTAL STUFF. THE GOVERNMENTAL FUNDSEEN IF WE DON'T FINISH THE ENTERPRISE FUNDS WE WOULD LIKE TO DO IS ON THURSDAY NIGHT HAVE COUNCIL PASS A RESOLUTION CHANGING THE TAXING AND POSSIBLY DEPENDING ON WHAT WE DECIDE AND THEN -- THAT WAY ZEAL OUR FINAL NUMBERS TO PUB

LABOR AND USE THE LATEST INFORMATION. >> MAYOR: I THINK IF YOU DO THAT, BRIAN, HAVE YOU TO AJUST THE AGENDA. Y YOU ARE RIGHT. WEND MAY HAVE 48 HOURS IN ADVANCE SAID.

>> 72. IF WE CAN GET SOMEBODY TO WORK ON THAT NOW.

>> LAURA!

>> ALL RIGHT. AT THIS POINT COUNCIL, WHAT WE'LL WORK ON THAT PART TONIGHT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CAN DO THAT DURING THE MEETING. AND THEN WHEN WE WILL DO AT THIS POINT WE WILL GO THROUGH THE BUDGET MEMO WHICH IS WHERE EVERYTHING IS LAID OUT FOR YOU.

ANY NOTES YOU HAVE AND QUESTIONS YOU HAVE WE'LL DO THE PAGE TURN ARE LIKE BEFORE AM SEEMS TO WORK WELL. SO -- WENDI OR ROBERT CAN YOU REMIND US THE PAGE.

TONIGHT WE START -- TONIGHT PAGE 24. OF AND NULLS WANT TO START ON PAGE ONE. IF YOU LIKE TO START ON PAGE ONE WE CAN DO THAT.

COUNCIL WE'RE PREPARED START WITH THE DETAIL WOULD YOU LIKE TO START WITH THE MEMO ITSELF? IF YOU WILL START ON PAGE 24 I GOTTA GO THROUGH 23 PAGES TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION.

PAGE ONE I'M FINE BUT -- I'M CONFUSED ABOUT IT. I HAVE A QUESTION ON PAGE 15.

[00:30:08]

SO -- OKAY. WHY DON'T WE START THROUGH THE WHOLE BUDGET MEM ORGANISM PAGE ONE WAS THERE QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS AND -- ON PAGE ONE? FIRST QUESTION IS PAGE 7 ANYONE HAVE ANYTHING BEFORE 7? I'M SORRY -- UM -- THE INVEST IN TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE MIDDLE OF THAT RIGHT PAGE, RIGHT TURN LANES SEVERAL LOCATIONS FOR HALF A MILLION. WE ALLOCATED MORE THAN HALF A

MILLION FOR RIGHT TURN LANES. >> MAYOR I BELIEVE THAT WAS JUST SUMMERS PORTION.

SO IN OTHER WORDS, THIS YEAR'S BUDGET. THIS IS NEXT YEAR'S.

WELL, YES BUT IT WAS BASED ON THE 2021 BUDGET. HAD HALF.

>> WE HAVE NOT DONE RIGHT HAND TURN LANES. I KNOW BUT WE SOLD THE REST OF THIS MONTHEPAST YEAR ALL OF THAT MONEY NOW WILL BE MY POINT WAS IT WAS JUST WHAT WAS INTENDED FOR NEXT YEAR. IT MATCHES PAGE 117 OF 120. THIS IS WHEN WE WILL DO IN THIS YEAR'S BUDGET, BUDGET YEAR, AND ARE YOU TELLING ME WE ARE DOING HALF MILLION DOLLARS OF RIGHT

TURN LANES IN THE NEXT 15 MONTHS. >> THAT'S WHEN WE ARE ADOPTING BECAUSE WE ADOPTED THE LARGE ARE AMOUNTS IN THE PREVIOUS BUDGET. RIGHT? OKAY. MAYOR IT IS A TECHNICALITY. SO WE WOULD HAVE ALREADY BUDGETED THE PREVIOUS AMOUNT IN THE CURRENT YEAR AND YOU ARE RIGHT IF BOW HAD NOT SPENT THAT IT WILL CARRY TO THE NEW YEAR PLUS THE HALF MILLION. JOY THINK IT IS PERSONALITY THIS WHEN WE TALK TO OUR PUBLIC THAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT WHAT HE WILL INVEST IN THE NEXT BUDGET YEAR. Y UNDERSTANDS THIS 500,000 WAS IN THIS YEAR'S CAPITOL INVESTMENT ALLOCATION IF YOU WILL. BUT IT IS NOT IN OUR GENERAL FUND BUDGET. IT IS IN THE IN EXPENSE BUDGET TEMPERATURE IS IN A CAPITOL IMPROVEMENT AND IN A BOND FUND. AND WE ARE GOING TO NEED TO COMMUNICATE TO THE PUBLIC WHAT WE EXPECT TO INVEST IN OUR COMMUNITY IN THIS NEXT BUDGET YEAR.

IT IS NOT ABOUT HOW MUCH WAS ALLOCATED UM -- YEAR 1, 2 OR 3 IT IS WHEN WE ARE INVESTING IN THE COMMUNITY IN THE NEXT YEAR. I UNDERSTAND IF YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT A GENERAL FUND BUDGET BUT IT IS NOT THAT. THAT CONFUSED ME TREMENDOUSLY. WE ARE SAY MAKING WHAT HAS BEEN ADDED YOU ARE RIGHT IF YOU LOOK AT THE NEXT BULLET POINT AND WATER AND SEWER FOR 7 MILLION.

SO THAT 7 MILLION IS JUST WHEN WE ARE AD NOTHING NEXT YEAR'S BUDGET BUT WE ALREADY ADDED THIS YEAR. AND NOT ALL OF THAT HAS BEEN SPENT, EITHER.

SOMEHOW. HI THIS PROBLEM LAST WE'RE OF GOING BACK AND FOURTH WITH CAPITOL FUNDS AND -- GENERAL FUND EXPENSES AND I THINK -- IT GETS CONVOLUTED I UNDERSTAND THE DESIRE TO SAY HOW MUCH WE ARE INVESTING IN THE DIFFERENT AREAS.

AND WE ARE INVESTING THOSE IN GENERAL FUNDS AS WELL AS BOND UPON FUNDS.

I THINK IT IS A HARD STORE TOW TELL AND WE NODE TO PUT A STICK IN THE SAND AND GO THIS . IS HOW WE WILL DO IT. WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT BOND IS IRRELEVANT HOW WE ALLOCATE TODAY ORIGINALLY WHAT IS RELEVANT HOW WE WILL SPEND IT OVER THE NEXT BUDGET YEAR, IN MY OPINION.

I DON'T KNOW IF THE REST OF THE COUNCIL HAVE THAT SAME FEELING OR NOT.

>> WELL, YOU KNOW IN TERMS OF THE WAY THIS WE SPLIT THE BUDGETARY OPERATING BUDGET IS A PURANUAL BUDGET AND WHAM IS LEFT OVER GOES TO RESERVES IF WE DON'T SPEND IT THE CAPITOL

[00:35:04]

BUDGET CARRIES OVER UNTIL WE PANG A DECISION NOT TO MAENDZ THE BUDGET.

SO YOU KNOW -- WE ISSUE A MILLION DOLLARS LEFT YEAR FOR THE CURRENT YEAR BUDGET PLUS THE.5 FOR NEXT YEAR. WE KNOW THAT THERE IS ABOUT A MILLION AND A HALF DOLLARS WE CAN SPEND ON RIGHT TURN LANES BUT THE NEW PORTION OF IT ONLY THE HALF MILLION.

I UNDERSTAND THE LOGIC. THE CAPITOL BUDGET DOES SHOW THAT YOU IN THE BACK OF THE

DOCUMENT BUT NOT HOW WE SPLINT TODAY HERE NECESSARILY. >> PEOPLE GO TO THIS BUDGET MEMO TO UNDERSTAND WHEN IS GOING ON. AND I GUARANTEE YOU 99.99 PEOPLE OUT OF 100 WILL ASSUME WE'LL

SPEND HALF A MILLION IN RIGHT HAND TURN LANES NEXT YEAR. >> IT IS YOUR ISSUE IS MORE TRANSPARENCY. COULD YOU PUT AN AFTRIC IN THERE THAT SAYS THE TOTAL INVESTMENT SO PEOPLE CAN SEE IT SO THEY ARE NOT CONFUSED. IT IS UNEXPENDED BOND FUNDS.

WHATEVER TO ME, THE BUSINESS EXPLANATION FOR EVERYTHING IS SO IMPORTANT.

WHETHER THAT IS TRANSPARENCY OR NOT OF COURSE IT IS BUT TO MEET THIS IT IS I GOT A PROBLEM IF WE'RE IN YEAR 3 OF BOND AND WE ALLOCATED 2 MILLION DOLLARS AND WE ARE ONLY SPENDING HALF A MILLION NEXT YEAR. I GOT A BIG PROBLEM WITH THAT. OKAY.

THAT'S AN ISSUE THROUGHOUT THIS. OKAY WE HAVE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO THIS IN THE FUTURE.

>> ANYTHING ON PAGE 8. LAURA? >> WHAT WAS YOUR NEXT PAGE,

BLAKE? >> COUNCILMEMBER MARGOLIS: PAGE 15

>> MAYOR: 9 IS 16. ANYONE HAVE ANYTHING BEFORE 15? LET'S GO TO 15.

BRIAN CAN YOU SPEAK TO -- THE REDUCTION OF CONCRETE REPAIR OF 360 THOUSAND DOLLARS?

IN THIS LINE ITEM THERE PART ONE. >> MAYOR: LET ME ASK A QUESTION WHERE WERE YOU GOING TO START WHAT PAGE WERE YOU GOING TO START OF I WAS GOING TO START ON THE OVER VIEW OF THE GENERAL FUND. WHY DON'T LET ME GET PAST 24.

>> SO -- COUNCIL. WHAT WE ARE PROPOSING TO DO WITH THIS BOND ELECTION IS -- THE UPCOMING BOND ELECTION TO AD A MILLION DOLLARSANUALY FOR PAVE AMIFF PROVE AM.

UNDER THE SAME LOGIC THAT WE USED LAST YEAR WITH THE PUTTING A LOT OF CASH INTO THE SYSTEM.

FOR PROJECTS THAT WE GET US 20 YEARS MORE OR LIFE. AND THE PHILOSOPHICALLY THE COUNCIL HAD A DISCUSSION AT THAT POINT, DO WEMENT TO SPEND CASH FOR INFRASTRUCTURE THAT WILL LEFT MORE THAN 20 YEARS. OR DO WE WANT TO SPEND THIS ON INTERMEDIATE STUFF THAT WILL LAST 10 YEARS OR ANOTHER NUMBER. AND IF WE AND USED THE BOND STRUCTURE TO AD PROJECTS THAT WOULD LAST 20 YEARS OR MORE. SO -- WHAT WE ARE PROSECUTE POSING FOR THIS BUDGET IS HAWE WOULD AD THE MILLION DOLLARSANUALY FOR PAVE AM IMPROVEMENTS AND MOVE THAT FROM OUR CASH PROGRAM. AND SO -- IT DOES NOT ELIMINATE CONCROW REPAIR THERE ARE INTERNEED MEDIATE USE WHAT IS IT WOULD DO IS WE WOULD HAVE A MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR IN CAPITOL BONDS FOR PROJECTS THAT ARE GOING TO LAST MORE THAN 20 YEARS SPECIAL WE WOULD STILL HAVE FUNDS AND CAPITOL MAINTENANCE FOR -- CONCRETE REPAIR THAT WOULD HAVE

INTERMEDIATE LIFE. DOES THAT HELP, >> YES, AND THEN THAT DOES HELP.

AND INTENTIONAL STRATEGY. >> RIGHT. >> MY NEXT DEVELOPMENT. CAN YOU EXPLAIN THAT. BLAKE CAN I EXPAND ON YOUR PREVIOUS QUESTION. SO WEAN DON'T HAVE TO COME BACK. ON THE NEXT PAGE, 16, IT TALKS

[00:40:08]

ABOUT THIS ALSO. UM -- BUT HERE IS MY CONFUSION. WE DIDN'T HAVE THIS MILLION DOLLARS WILL IN THE BOND PROGRAM THAT WAS ALREADY OUT THERE. SO -- WELL IS NO MILLION DOLLARS ALLOCATION. THIS NEXT FISCAL YEAR FOR THIS STRATEGY.

SO -- WHAT WE ARE TAKING IT OUT OF THIS BUDGET BUT WE DON'T HAVE IT IN THE CAPITOL BOND FUND.

MAYOR, THAT IS WHAT WE ARE PROPOSING. >> MAYOR: HOW ARE WE DOING THAT ONE YEAR STOPGAP? SO WHAT WILL HAPPEN IS THAT IT WILL REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF PAVEMENT CONCRETE MONEY WE HAVE IN THIS COMING YEAR. I'M NOT COMFORTABLE WITH THAT.

NOT IF THERE IS A REPLACEMENT OF THAT EXPENDITURE. I DON'T THINK WE SHOULD HALT.

WHICH WOULD -- YOU KNOW

>> MAYOR: THAT IS AN AREA WE MAY HAVE TO REVISIT. >> WE WILL HAVE 239 THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR THIS PROGRAM IN NEXT YEAR. HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO REMEMBER THAT, WHY? WELL. I WAS SAYING THAT CURRENTLY WE HAVE 600,000. WE ARE PROSECUTE POSING TO REDUCE IT BY 360 MEANING WE HAVE

239,000 IN THE PROSECUTE POSED BUDGET. >> OKAY.

>> AND THE OTHER CONCERN I HAVE IS WE ARE NOT EVEN SURE WE WILL DO A MAY BOND ELECTION.

WE HAVE A LONG SO YOU KNOW DECISION TO MAKE ON THAT. SO -- IT COULD BE TWO YEARS BEFORE WE HAVE THIS BONDING CAPABILITY, THAT IT IS A RISK TAKE THE FUNDS OUT OF THE USE.

I'M STILL ON THE SAME SUBJECT. >> YOU ARE GOOD, YES. >> I'M ON PAGE 16 AND THAT TOP I'M GETTING CONFUSE TODAY SAYS IN ESSENSE THE MAINTENANCE FUND USING TECHNIQUES TO EXTEND THE USEFUL LIFE BY 5 TO 10 YEARS. IS THAT THE 239? SO, MAYOR, THIS IS EXACT ARGUMENT THAT WE MADE -- WITH THE INFRASTRUCTURE LAST YEAR IS THAT THE CAPITOL MAINTENANCE FUND IS BH WE FUND BY CASH IT WOULD BE USED MORE FOR PROJECTS THAT EXTEND THE LIFE IN AN INTERMEDIATE TERM 5 TO 10 YEARS OPPOSED TO THE LONG-TERM STUFF 20 OR MORE.

SO THE 235 FOR NEXT YEAR? YES. THERE WILL BE 239,000 NEXT YEAR FOR CONCRETE PAVEMENT REPAIR AND WHICH WOULD -- IT WOULD CHANGE THE FOCUS OF THE PROGRAM.

>> YEA. >> OKAY THAT HELPED ME UNDERSTAND WHAT THE NUMBERS ARE

ABOUT. >> OKAY. THANKS, BLAKE.

>> COUNCILMEMBER MARGOLIS: NOW I'M STUCK ON THAT. SO -- THAT WE ARE -- NOW I GET IT. OKAY. I JUST EXERCISED MY HEAD.

I GOT IT. SORRY.

QUESTION BACK TO PROJECTED PERSONNEL COSTS. CAN YOU EXPLAIN THAT? THAT IS ESSENTIAL LOW WE HAVE A VACANCY IN THIS DEPARTMENT. THAT REALLY IS AN ADJUSTMENT TO WHAT THE WHAT WE WOULD EXPECT TO PAY OUT OR PAY FOR TO REACCOMPLICE THAT POSITION. YOU MAY REMEMBER WE HAD A PREVIOUS INCUMBENT IN THERE BASED ON THEIR SALARY COMPARED TO WHEN WE THINK WE WOULD FILL THIS POSITION. WE ARE NOT DOWNGRADING OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

IT IS JUST A -- A DOLLAR CALCULATION BASED ON WHAT WE ARE BUDGETING VACANT POSITIONS

VERSUS WHAT THAT INDIVIDUAL HAD IN TERMS OF SELL ROW. >> SALARY AND BENEFITS.

>> AND -- I JUST THOUGHT OF ONE MORE QUESTION. IT IS O PAGE 14.

UNDER THE INCREASE IN CONTRACT COSTS I KNOW THAT -- WE DISCUSS THIRD DEGREE OFF LINE WHICH WAS

[00:45:04]

LOOKING AT A POTENTIAL INCREASE IN A CONTRACT COST FOR MEDIA MAINTENANCE.

I WANTED TO POINT THAT OUT TO ADD IT TO YOUR LIST TO LOOK INTO AS SOMETHING WE COULD FIGURE OUT IF IT IS FEASIBLE TO CONTRACT OUT WITH A COMPANY FOR MEDIA MAINTENANCE ON 66.

MEDIUM MAINTENANCE. >> ANGIE, ARE YOU ON? YOU SHOULD BEING BUT, JUST

CHECKING. >> COUNCILMEMBER: OF COURSE. >> HI, ANGIE CAN YOU ADDRESS HOW

WE'RE COVERING THE COVER ON HIGHWAY 66. >> IT IS A JOINT EFFORT BETWEEN OUR CONTRACTOR AND OUR STAFF. OUR CONTRACTOR ALREADY WAS INCLUDED IN MOWING WHEN WE HAD REGULAR MEETINGS THERE. THEY ASSIST AND MY STAFF ASSISTS.

NOW AS YOU HEARD ME SAY THE MEDIANS ARE OUR CONTRACTOR HAS AN ENTIRE CREW OUT WITH COVID-19 AND WE ARE TRYING TO GET THEM BACK 100%. BUT ON AN ON GOING BASES, IT WILL BE A COMBINATION BETWEEN CITY STAFF, SUPPLEMENTING AND OUR CONTRACTORS SUPPLEMENTING AND GETTING THEM ON A GOOD SPRAY ROUTINE TO STOP THE WEEDS BEFORE THEY COME IN OPPOSED FO TO NOW DEALING WITH BACK ISSUES OF

THAT. >> SO. GO AHEAD.

>> I WAS GOING TO SAY ANGIE WHAT BLAKE IS PROPOSING IS TO INCREASE THAT TO MAKE SURE WE

HAVE ENOUGH CONTRACT DOLLARS TO DO I THINK 100%? >> COUNCILMEMBER MARGOLIS: THAT

WAS ONE THING I ASKED FOR. >> AARON CAN WORK TO GET A PRICE ON WHAT THAT MIGHT LOOK LIKE IN A COUPLE PHASES IF THAT WILL-. WE DID GET A PRICE AND IT WAS SIGNIFICANT.

I DON'T REMEMBER IT WAS DOUBLE DIGITS WE CAN GET BACK WITH AND GET A PRICE.

THANK YOU. MY NEXT QUESTION IS PAGE 19. YOU HAVE ANYTHING BEFORE THEN? ON PAGE 19, UM -- THE COMMERCIAL ESTIMATE THE MARKET VALUE

HAVE TO DO WITH THE HOSPITAL. >> MAYOR: CAN WE CHECK AND GET THE BREAK DOWN AND REPORT BACK TO US. BUT TAMMY, I WOULD SAY THAT THE ESTIMATED MARKET VALUE ALSO WAS AFFECTED BY THAT 900 MILLION DOLLARS. AND SO -- BETWEEN THE RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL, FRANKLY, THESE VALUES REPRESENT WHAT WE COMBOOU KNEW AS OF JULY

25TH NOT TODAY >> CAN WE LOOK AT THIS WITH NEW NUMBERS AND IF IT IS -- GET A BETTER UNDERSTANDING. YES, MA'AM. MY NEXT IS PAGE 23.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANYTHING BEFORE THAT. > YEA A QUESTION ON 21 UNDER THE COMPENSATION AND STAFFING. YOU SAID YOU WILL E ELIMINATE 4 CAPITOL MAINTENANCE POSITIONS THAT WILL NOT AFFECT OUR ABILITY TO BE ABLE TO GET THE PROJECTS DONE? NO. AND IF YOU GO BACK TO PAGE 15, LAURA.

RIGHT THERE. THERE. WILL SO -- YOU WILL SEE THAT WAS PART OF THE STRATEGY REGARDING THE CONCRETE PAVEMENT. TWO 50 AND THREE 60 IS ALL PART

OF THAT STRATEGY. >> COUNCILMEMBER GRUBSICH: OKAY. IF WE WERE NOT GOING TO PUSH THAT TO BOND WE WOULD WANT TO RETAIN THOSE FUNDS. IF WE ARE, THAT IS A BETTER USE

FOR THOSE FUNDS. >> MAYOR: WE DON'T HAVE THE FUNDS RIGHT NOW.

>> CORRECT, MAYOR. >> MAYOR: HOW DO WE ANTICIPATE OPERATIONALLY MANAGING?

[00:50:02]

>> WE DON'T HAVE THOSE POSITIONS, EITHER E. >>

>> COUNCILMEMBER GRUBSICH: YOU PUT ELIMINATING AND THEY ARE REALLY NOT FILLED.

>> THEY HAVE NOT BEEN FILLED FOR A LONG TIME, EITHER. >> UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF REASONS FOR THAT. AND MY POINT IS THAT YOU KNOW THIS WAS AN INTENTIONAL PROGRAM A FEW YEARS AGO WHERE WE THOUGHT IF WE COULD DO MORE OF THIS WORK OURSELVES, ALL I'M SAYING IS -- THAT -- YOU KNOW OUR PROPOSAL IS THAT WE MAKE THIS A PART OF THE BOND PROGRAM AND WE CONTRACT THAT OUT. HAVE WE COUNTED THE FUNDING FOR THOSE POSITION IN OUR VACANCY

SAVINGS? >> THIS YEAR WE DID THIS . IS NEXT YEAR'S MARTHA.

GOOD QUESTION. THIS YEAR WE COUNTED ON SAVINGS TO HELP US BALANCE THE BUDGET.

>> COUNCILMEMBER BROWN: NEXT YEAR THEY ARE INCLUDED IN THE BUDGET?

>> NO. NEXT YEAR WE ARE PROPOSING TO E ELIMINATE THOSE 4 POSITIONS WHICH IS HOW WE GOT THE 250 PLUS ADJUSTMENT WITH THE THREE 60. ULTMITT LOW THIS WOULD ADD MORE MONEY TO THIS PACIFIC PROGRAM BUT -- BUT THE COST OF THIS COME WITH NOT HAVING THE FUNDS IN THE

UPCOMING YEAR. >> VAC ANALYSISY SAVING IN THE APPLICABLE NEXT YEAR THE

POSITIONS ARE NOT IN THE BUDGET. IORIGHT THAT WAS MY QUESTION. >> SORRY.

WHAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING THUS FAR IS CONTRACTING OUT INSTEAD OF USING CONSTRUCTION CREW SINCE WE

DON'T HAVE ANY. IS THIS RIGHT. >> I'M NOT SAYING THIS SHOULD NOT TIMES OUR GIRLFRIENDS ARE NOT DOING SOME OF THIS WORK. I'M SAYING THE STRATEGY OF HIRING THE STRIKE TEAM, SO TO SPEAK, FOR CONSTRUCTION WE REALLY HAVE NOT HAD THAT ABILITY TO BE ABLE TO RUN THIS CREW IN PART DO TO VACANCIES WE HAD PRESCRIPTIONAL MEADS AND A POST OF OTHER THINGS. BUT WE REALLY HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO EMPLOY THE STRATEGY AND WHEN I'M SAYING IS THAT -- THIS IS WE ARE PROSECUTE POSING THIS AS A CHANGE BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT WE CAN DO MORE WITH THE DOLLARS THEN AND THERE IF WE DID IT NOURZ THIS REGARD.

>> AND I THINK ALL COUNCIL IS ASKING IS HOW ARE WE FULFILL THANKSGIVING BUILDINGS NEED OVER THE NEXT 12 MINUTE IN THIS BUDGET IF THEY ARE NOT IN THIS BUDGET.

MAYOR WHAT I'M SAYING WHAT OUR SPREFL IS TO REDUCE THE DOLLARS IN THE CURRENT THE UPCOMING YEAR. AND THAT WAS WHAT YOU SAID AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS PART OF THE DISCUSSION IS THAT MEANS THERE WILL BE A GAP FOR NEXT YEAR IF WE DON'T FILL IN ANOTHER

WAY. >> AGAIN, WHAT I'M SAYING IS THAT HOW ARE WE FULFILLING THE REQUIREMENTS SO IN THE FIRST ACCOMPLICE WE HAVE NOT DONE THIS WORK ON THE CONSTRUCTION CREW FOR THE LEFT COUPLE YEARS. THE 360 IS MONEY WE HAVE BEEN SPENDING EVERY YEAR.

IN TERMS OF FARM DOLLARS THE THREE 60 WILL BE A GAP THE 250 IS NOT A GAP.

SO -- OKAY. THAT MAKES SENSE. SO SAY COUNCIL WANTS TO ADD BACK THE 360 FOR THE NEXT YEAR. WE VALID TO ADD BACK THE CONSTRUCTION CREW OR NOT DO

THIS. >> THIS IS CONTRACT WORK. STILL ELIMINATE IT IS CONSTRUCTION CREW TELL NOT HAVE AN AFFECT AT ALL. THE CREW WAS A COST SAVING MEASURE. A FEW YEARS AGO. IF WE HAD THAT -- THAT CREW UP WE WOULD BE ABLE -- TO TELL BUT LIKE I SAID IT JUST FOR A LOT OF REASON ITS HAS IN THE WORKED OUT

THIS WAY. >> RIGHT. I WOULD RATHER ME IN THE PRINCIPLE I'M MAKING I WOULD RATHER HAVE A MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR EVERY YEAR IN CONTRACT WORK FOR THE NEXT 10 YEARS THAN TO RELY ON THE METHOD THAT WE HAVE TRIED TO DO WITH.

>> MAYOR: I THINK MATT YOU ASKED THIS QUESTION DID THIS RESOLVE YOUR QUESTION.

>> COUNCILMEMBER MARGOLIS: IT WAS THE WORDING AND I AGREE WITH THAT STRATEGY OF WHERE WE'RE

[00:55:03]

HEADED ON THAT ONE. ANYTHING BEFORE PAGE 23? SO ON PAGE 23, THESE ARE REALLY LIKE WHOLE DOLLARS. THIS IS 22 THOUSAND DOLLARS, RIGHT? IT IS WEIRD TO LOOK AT THIS SCOMBJ NOT HAVE SOMETHING IN THOUSANDS.

SO -- I DON'T WANT THIS ANSWER IN THE THIS MEET BEING I DON'T THINK IT IS SMALL DOLLARS.

I WANT A LINE ITEM COMPARISON OF BOTH OF THESE ITEMS. WILL 22 VERSUS 43.

96 VERSUS 175 THIS INCREASE DOES IN THE MAKE SENSE WE'RE NOT DOING ANYTHING DIFFERENCE TO CAUSE THAT INCREASE. I'M CONCERNED ABOUT THIS. LAURA, ARE YOU BACK ON?

YES. IS THIS LAURA OR WENDI. RAURA. >> I CAN ADDRESS THE NEWSPAPER PUBLICATION ISSUE THAT IS BECAUSE THE PUBLICATION FOR A SPECIAL ELECTION ESPECIALLY BONDING, REQUIRES AN EXTENSIVE PUBLIC NOTICE AND SO THAT IS -- A LARGE AMOUNT.

>> OKAY. WILL AND RRNLT HAS THE DOWNLOAD FOR THE LEGISLATION.

THERE WAS SOMETHING WE DID LOOK AT THIS PREACHING BECAUSE IT CUT MY EYE AND SOMETHING MADE SENSE I DON'T REMEMBER WHAT IT WAS. WE WILL GET THIS DETAILED TO YOU.

MOST ARE MEMBERSHIPS WE PARTICIPATE IN LIKE TML. WE CAN'T DISTINGUISH IF THIS IS TRAINING OR LEGISLATION IS YOUR HOLE MEMBERSHIP. WE JUST -- HAVE TO DO A BALLPARK

DOWNLOAD OF MEMBERSHIPS. AND FEES. >> THE MEMBER WITH THIS.

THIS IS WHAT THE STATE LEGISLATOR WILL COME AFTER THIS YEAR.

SO WE UNDERSTAND THE NUMBERS AND WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE SCRUBBED.

AND THEY ARE CORRECT. >> THAT IS 50 THOUSAND DOLLARS OF THE INCREASE IS RECLASSIFICATION OF PUBLIC WORKS ASSOCIATION MEMBERSHIP. THEY ORIGINALLY HAD IT CLASSIFIED AS A PROFESSIONAL SERVICE. WATER TESTING NOW IT IS NOT THE RIGHT PLACE IT WAS THE MEMBERSHIP ASSOCIATION WHICH ALLOWS THEM TO USE SOME MORE TESTING BUT THE 60 GRAND IS THE ASSOCIATION DUES. WE RECLASSIFY TODAY AND DUES IN THIS BUDGET SO IT IS NOT A BUDGET INCREASE BUT AN INCREASE TO THIS LINE ITEM.

THAT'S WHY IT IS SHOWING THIS WAY, MAYOR >> THIS IS ABOUT BUDGET IN EXPENSES INFLUENCING OUTCOME OF LEGISLATION. WE NEED TO MAKE SURE REGARDLESS OF WHAT LINE ITEM THE NUMBERS ARE CORRECT AND THEY ARE NOT CORRECT.

WHY ROBERT DO YOU HAVE THE BREAK DOWN OF WHAT THE 175,000 IS MADE UP OF.

IT IS EVERY ASSOCIATION DUES PAYMENT. AND THE SECT THOUSAND DOLLARS SWING IS THE ONE RECLASSIFIC FOR DUES THAT WERE MISCLASSIFIED IN PRIOR YEARS AS WATER TEST WHEN THEY WERE DUES. WE ARE ASKING ABOUT THE 175,000, WHAT ORGANIZATIONS ARE IN THAT AMOUNT? I DON'T HAVE THE BREAK OUN OF ALL THE OTHER VENDERS THIS ARE IN THERE. THAT'S WHAT THE MAYOR WAS ASKING FOR WE WILL PROVIDE THAT TO COUNCIL WITH THE DETAIL OF WHAT -- EACH THESE ARE MADE UP OF.

>> MAYOR: I'M ASKING BOTH THE INCREASE MAKES NO SENSE WE DON'T HAVE NEW EXPENDITURES AFFECTING THE UM OUTCOME OF LEGISLATION. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN REPORT IN THE 20 THEN IT WAS NOT A

PROFESSIONAL SERVICE IT WAS AN ASSOCIATION FEE >> PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE OPERATIVE WORDS. LEGISLATION. INFLUENCING OUTCOME OF LEGISLATION. NOW WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT THIS FOR 10 MINUTES TOO LONG IN THIS MEETING -- PLEASE TAKE THIS OFF LINE, PLEASE SCRUB IT AND WE CAN'T HAVE THIS KIND OF DISCLOSURE WITHOUT UNDERSTAND WHATTING THIS DISCLOSURE IS ABOUT AND HAVING APPLES TO

[01:00:06]

APPLES YEAR OVER YEAR. >> ALL RIGHT WE DOLL THAT AND SENDS COUNCIL AN LIKE ALL THE COVID-19 TEST IN ONE DAY'S DEAL! EXACTLY.

ANYONE HAVE ANYTHING ELSE. I WAS GOING THROUGH LIKE WE DID STARTING ON PAGE 21.

IF YOU HAVE QUESTION THIS IS WE CAN ANSWER. FOR YOU.

GENERAL FUND THROUGH PAGE 27 AND SKIP OVER ENTERPRISE FUNDS DO THOSE THURSDAY.

TONIGHT FROM 24 TO PAGE 27 AND SKIP OVER TO THE GOVERNMENTAL FUNDS ON PAGE 33.

YOUR ESTIMATION IN DECREASE IN SALES TAX. THAT IS TO BE CONSERVATIVE.

AS OF -- YOU KNOW WE HAD THE LOSS OF MAJOR SALES TAX INCREDIBLOR LAST YEAR.

WE EXPERIENCED A 1.7% DECREASE. THROUGH JUNE OF THISSIER WE ARE 5.3% BEHALF.

LLOW THIS YEAR. REDUCTION OF 141 THOUSAND FOR REVENUE EXPECT EGGS GIVEN THE ECONOMIC CLOIMENT WE WILL HAVE DONE WELL SO FAR BUT DON'T KNOW IF THAT WILL CONTINUE.

WE ARE KEEPING IT IN THE. WE REDUCE TODAY BY 141,000. ONE OF FANATICORS WHY WE HAVE TAKEN THIS APPROACH UNDERSTANDING THAT WE REALIZED THERE ARE CITIES THAT ARE LIT IRRELEVANT HAVING TO DEEM WITH MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN REVENUE SHORT FALL.

IS THIS YOU HAVE BEEN WE THEN AND THERE THERE ARE THINGS. PEOPLE UNEMPLOYED MAY HAVE GONE THROUGH SAVINGS. UNEMPLOYMENT REDUCED NO LONGER 600 A WEEK THAT IT HAD BEEN.

YOU KNOW -- THERE ARE POSSIBLE CONDITIONS GOING IN TO NEXT YEAR.

YOU KNOW THAT MAY NOT HAVE BEEN APPLICABLE THIS YEAR. WE DON'T KNOW IF THERE WILL BE ADDITIONAL STIMULUS DOLLARS. THERE IS UNCERTAINTY ABOUT NEXT YEAR WE'RE EVEN THOUGH OUR CITY MAY BE DOING A BIT BETTER. WE ARE IN THE WILLING TO BACK YOU HAVE THIS APPROACH AT THIS TIME I FIGURED THIS IS WHAT IT WAS. I HAVE I QUESTION.

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN HOME DURING THIS AND SHOPPING ON AMAZON THEY WILL NOT BE THAT WAY NEXT YEAR.

THAT WILL LOWER ATTENTION. WHAT IS OTHER TAXES REDUCING THE 30,000.

THAT IS MIXED BEVERAGE TAX AS LONG THERE IS LIMITED SEATING WE ANTICIPATE A REDUCTION THE MIXED

BEVERAGE TAX. >> OKAY. >> THE OTHER, OTHER WHICH IS

THIRD LINE FROM THE BOTTOM. >> WE HAVE A -- WENDI THERE SAY BREAK DOWN ON PAGE 25.

[01:05:06]

ENTER RATES ARE LOW WE ARE NOT EXPECTING OUR ENTER REVENUE TO BE AS HIGH.

WE CUT IT IN HALF FROM LAST YEAR. ONE OTHER WE ARE PROUD OF THE CELL TOWERS RENTALS WE ARE COLLECT NOW S6 HUH THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR.

THAP IS A BIG NUMBER ON THAT. OKAY. THANK YOU.

WENDI. ARE THERE OTHER QUESTIONS ON THE -- REFER NEWS THROUGH PAGE 25? MOVE TO EXPENSES THE BIG OF CHANGE IS THE LEARNING ARE PORTION OF THE SAFER GRANT. THAT WE HAVE TO COVER FOR THE FIREFIGHTERS.

OTHER THAN THAT -- INCREASES WE DID INCREASE THOSE AND MADE REDUCTIONS AND LINE ITEMS WE HAVE UNDER UTILIZED.

SO OVER ALL, OUR EXPENSE BUDGET IS FLAT A DIFFERENCE OF 2,000 FOR THE YEAR

>> I'M NOT ON THE PAGE WHAT PAGE? >> 26.

SORRY ABOUT THAT. >> AS A COMMENT ON THIS PAGE, I WOULD THINK WE GET THE RESULTS OF THE SAFER GRANT AWARD WHETHER WE GET IT OR NOT IN OCTOBER? IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN DEPENDING ON

WHAT WE DO WITH THAT WHEN THEY HAVE I CHANGE IN OCTOBER. >> YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE --

NEW SUBMISSION. >> AFFECTED BY THIS. >> YEA, TRUE.

>> BUT NEXT YEAR IT IS ROUGHLY 400,000 BECAUSE -- YES. SO NEXT YEAR.

IT IS IN THE EXACT LOW THE THREE 97 OR WHATEVER BUT YOU ARE RIGHT IT IS ANOTHER CHUNK.

AFTER THAT WE ARE 100% IN THIS GUARANTEE. IF WE GET NEXT SAFER GRANT IT IS

100% FOR THREE YEARS >> THAT'S WHAT THEY SAID IT WOULD BE.

IN OTHER WORDS, WE WOULD NOT PAY ANYTHING FOR THE FIRST 3 YEARS. THAT IS CORRECT, MARTHA.

BUT WHAT WE WERE SAYING ON THIS ONE IS THIS WE WENT FROM OUR SHARE WAS 25% WE JUMPED TO 60 SOMETHING % FOR THIS YEAR AND -- HERE IT IS. 65% IN THE NEXT YEAR WHICH IS THIS THREE00 AND MOST OF THE THREE 97 YOU ARE SEEING. IN THE FAMILIARING YEAR, WE JUMP TO -- 100% OF OUR COSTS ALCOHOL BE AN ADDITIONAL THREE00 PLUS THOUSAND DOLLARS.

YOU KNOW IT IS I GREAT PROGRAM. SAVED US A MILLION AND A HALF OVER THE THREE YEAR PERIOD.

IT ALLOWS US TO ENTER IN THIS AGREEMENT AND THEN TO -- AD A BIT EACH YEAR.

THE NEW GRANT WOULD BE 100% COVERED FOR THREE YEARS THEN WE WOULD HAVE TO COME UP WITH ALL OF IT. SO IF WE GET THAT GRANT. WE WILL NEED TO PLAN FOR THAT

NKDZ OVER TIME OFFIL GO BACK TO MATT'S COMMENT. >> COUNCILMEMBER GRUBSICH: YOU

KNOW ME WELL. >> YOU KNOW ME WELL. IT IS A POINT WE TALKED ABOUT THE CONCRETE REPER SE THAT IS ONE TIME COST NEXT FISCAL YEAR. HOPEFUL LOW AFTER THAT IT WOULD BE IN THE BONDING. AND IT IS A BIT EQUAL TO WHAT MATT SAID AND WE WILL HAVE THAT IN PLACE.

TO FUNDS THAT ADDITIONAL INCREASE FOR FIRE AND EMERGENCY PERSONAL.

THERE IS -- A BIT OF -- LOGIC THERE, MATT.

WHAT THERE IS IN THE LOGIC IS TO INCREASE STAFFING OR YOU >> PUT SOMETHING THIS THAT WILL

[01:10:07]

PERMANENT LOW ASCII THE BUDGET DOWN THE ROAD BUT THAT CONCRETE SOMETHING LIKE THAT MIGHT MAKE

SENSE. >> COUNCILMEMBER GRUBSICH: YEP. AND WE ARE APPROPRIATING FOR THE

FUTURE WHEN WE HAVE TO FUND THIS ADDITIONAL. >> COUNCILMEMBER GRUBSICH: EXACTLY WHERE I WAS GOING. DO WE HAVE QUESTIONS ON THE GENERAL FUND EXPENSES.

WHAT PAGES ARE WE ON. 26 AND 27. 27.

WHERE ARE WE ACCOUNTING FOR ALL OF THE LEASE THE APPARATUS WE HAVE?

OUTSIDE OF THE NORTH. >> CAPITOL LEASES FOR THE FIRE FLOAT, THOSE ARE ACCOUNTED FOR

IN THE GENERAL FUND UPON UNDER THE EXPENSE. >> OKAY.

IS THERE SOMEWHERE IN HERE A CHART OF WHAT ALL THE LOSES ARE? THEY ARE LISTED IN OUR COFER EVERY YEAR BUT WE DON'T LIST THE CAPITOL LOSE IN THE BUDGET WE CAN GET THE LIST TO YOU IF YOU

WOULD LIKE IT. JOY WOULD, >> THE CAR IS ONLINE,

>> YOU WILL BRING TO US IN THE COMING MONTHS ABOUT DOING THE LOSE STRUCTURE OR -- ARE YOU

TALK ABOUT THIS ENTERPRISE? YES. >> SO -- WE ARE GOING TO HOPEFUL

LOW TALK MORE ABOUT THAT ON THURSDAY NIGHT, MATT. >> COUNCILMEMBER GRUBSICH: OKAY.

>> MAYOR: IS IT GENERAL LOW USED TERM FOR THIS? >> YES.

IT IS A COMMON SHORT NAME FOR VEHICLE REACCOMPLICEMENT FUND. SOUNDS LICK WE ARE 3ING UP EVERY TIME WE SAY IT, SORRY. DOES NOT ROLL OFF MY TONGUE. DO WE DO THE VRF NOW FOR BOBCATS AND MOWERS AND THINGS LIKE THAT IN THERE. IT IS INCLUDED IN THERE.

ALL OF THE LARGE ROLLING STOCK IS INCLUDED IN THAT VRF. GENERAL FUND EQUIPMENT.

NOT WATER AND SEWER. IT INCLUDES LAWN MOWERS. I'M NOT SURE ABOUT THE SMALL LAWN MOWER PIECES BUTT BIG HEAVY EQUIPMENT. MIGHT BE SOMETHING TO LOOK AT IF WE WILL GO AWAY FROM IT SEEING WHAT THAT COST SAVINGS MIGHT MAKE SENSE.

MOWERS ARE NOT GETTING CHEAP AND ARE MORE LAND WE HAVE THE BIGGER WE NEED.

TORO MOWER THIS WAS INCLUDED THE REGULAR MAINTENANCE MOWING AND EDGE WEED EATERS IS IN THE

INCLUDED IN THERE. >> I WOULD NOT EXPECT A WEED EATER SOME OF THE TORO MOWERS ARE 35 GRAND. THAT'S IN THERE. OKAY.

THANK YOU. >> I THINK GENERAL LITE STUFF THIS LESS THEN AND THERE THOINDZ IS COVER IN THE THE OPERATING BUDGET FOR SMALL TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT AND THAT STUFF.

>> OKAY. GREAT. I THINK I REMEMBER.

IF WEE DON'T HAVE MORE QUESTIONS ON THE GENERAL FUND WE CAN SKIP TO PAGE 33 THE ENTER PROIZ FUNDOS THURSDAY NIGHT. I HAVE A QUESTION. UNDER THE THE AND THE DETERS.

YEA. CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHAT IS A QUALIFIED EXPENDITURE THAT HAS INFRASTRUCTURE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH UTILITY IMPROVE AM ANDS ROADWAYS AND OPEN SPACE REQUIREMENTS AND THOSE THINGS THERE IS AN ADOPTIVE PLAN FOR EACH ONE.

SO VILLAGE OF ROWLETT HAS A PLAN THAT COUNCIL ADOPTD AND EACH IS AN ADOPTED

[01:15:05]

IT CAN BE SPENT FOR ARE PROJECTS IN THIS PLAN IF IN THE IN THE PLAN YOU CAN'T SPEND IT IS MACHINY YOU CAN AMEND THE PLAN IT IS FOR THOSE THINGS. DO YOU MINDS SENDING MOW THAT

FOR THE VILLAGE OF ROWLETT. THIS PLAN? >> OKAY.

>> COUNCILMEMBER MARGOLIS: THANK YOU. >> JUST TO BE CLEAR, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE DOWNTOWN YOUR WHEN WE SAY VILLAGE OF ROWLETT HERE?

>> YES, MA'AM >>MENTEDMIC SURE EVERYBODY UNDERSTANDS THIS.

>> RIGHT. NOT VILLAGES NOT VILLAGE APARTMENTS VILLAGE OF ROWLETT.

OKAYS. OKAY. DO WE HAVE OTHER QUESTIONS ON

THE OTHER GENTLEMANAL AL GOVERNMENTAL FUNDS REVENUES. >> COUNCILMEMBER BROWN: I THINK I WILL ASK WHAT YOU WERE GETTING READY TO ASK ABOUT THE INCREASE IN COURT SECURITY.

I -- LOCKED AT THAT AND SPOKE TO THE JUDGE ABOUT IT I WAS SURPRISED BY THE AMOUNT OF INCREASE AND THAT HAD TO DO WITH OVER TIME FOR THE BAILIFF AND SOME CONFUSION ABOUT HOW -- HE WAS BEING PAID AND THEN -- ALSO THEY HAVE REDUCED THE PART TIME BAILIFF BECAUSE THEY E ELIMINATED THURSDAY DOCKETS AND YOU MOTIVE WANT TO REVISIT THIS. LINE ITEM.

PROBABLY NOT ACCURATE. I THINK IN YOU ARE RIGHT. SINCE WE PUB LABOR THIRD DEGREE PROPOSED BUDGET WE HAD THAT DISCUSSION. AND WE WILL GO BACK AND RELOOK AT THAT. AND GET THIS STRAIGHTENED OUT WITH HER.

>> COUNCILMEMBER BROWN: I THINK THIS WILL BE CLOSER TO A FLAT NUMBER.

I THINK WE PULL MOST OF THAT OUT OF THERE. I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THE JURY FEES ON THE BOTTOM. HOW DO WE GET A REVENUE ON JURY FEES?

>> WE HAVE TO FUNDS THAT IS NOW THIS YEAR. IT IS REQUIRED WE NOW SPRIT THAT OUT FROM OUR COURT. OUR COURT FUNDS. SO -- THAT IS WE HAVE TO FUNDS THAT JUST LIKE WE WOULD WHEN IT WAS FUNNELING THROUGH OUR COURT DEPARTMENT THROUGH OUR PETTY CASH FEE WE PAY AN AMOUNT PERJURE OR WHO ATTENDSES. THAT HAS BEEN HOW MUCH WE HAVE

ECPENDED EACH YEAR. >> OKAY. THANK YOU.

ANY QUESTIONS ON PAGE THERE ARE THE EXPENSES FOR OTHER GOVERNMENTAL FUNDS.

AND AGAIN I WANT TO ALSO RECOGNIZE THAT BASED ON THE ACTUAL TAX RATE THAT WE SET THE BUDGET AT, UM THAT VILLAGE OF ROWLETT THE EXPENSES WILL FLUCTUATE BASED ON THAT IT IS BASED ON THE PROPERTY TAX REVENUE THAT IS SET YOU WILL SEE THAT CHANGE IN THE FINAL BUDGET AS WELL. NOT JUST VILLAGE OF ROWLETT. RIGHT, YES, ALL OF THE TIF FUNDS, THAT'S CORRECT. GOOD POINT. WHAT IS THE CHILD SAFETY FEE FUND? THAT IS THROUGH DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES EVERY TIME THAT A VEHICLE IS REGISTERED WITH THE COUNTY THE CITY GETS A PERCENTAGE OR AN IN THE DOLLAR FEE OF THAT REGISTRATION AND GOES TO FUNDS OUR SCHOOL CROSSING GUARDS.

>> THIS IS THE SCHOOL CROSSING GUARD COST THIS IS IS EXPENSES. JOP Y.S SCHOOL CROSSING GUARD.

>> MAYOR. I BE YOU REMEMBER THIS WILL. WE -- USED TO NOT GET MONEY FOR THAT THE CITY HAD TO COME UP WITH 100% OF IT. NOTICE -- BECAUSE OF THIS FEE WE

[01:20:08]

ARE ABLE TO USE THAT SO THE SCHOOL CROSSING GUARDS IS ABOUT 85,000 A YEAR NOW.

THE REVENUE LOOKS LIKE 56,000. UPON >> WHY DID REF NOW GO DOWN? THAT IS BUZZ WE HAD A LARGER FUNDS WE DON'T GET THE FULL FUNDING FOR THE CROSSING GUARDS THROUGH THAT FEE THE GENERAL FUND SUPPLEMENTED THAT THE -- COST FOR THE SCHOOL CROSSING GUARDS. HOWEVER, BECAUSE THE SCHOOLS WERE SHUT DOWN FOR A PORTION OF THIS SECOND HALF OF THE FISCAL YEAR WE HAVE BALANCE WE CAN USE TOWARD NEXT YEAR.

GOT IT. THANK YOU. AND I GOT A MESSAGE FROM TARA OR CONTROLLER SHE IS BACKED UP ON THE JURY FEE WE HAD TO COLLECT A 10 CENT FEE ON CERTAIN TICKETS THAT'S WHY WE SET IT UP IN ITS OWN FUND. 10 CENTS PER CITATION ON VIOLATIONS. MY GOODNESS I CAN'T BELIEVE HAVE YOU TO DO ACCOUNTING FOR 10

CENTS. >> YES. I CAN'T WE STILL HAVE PENES IN THIS ECONOMY, EITHER BUT OKAY. OKAY. THE DEBT SERVICE FUND.

PRETTY STRAIGHTFORWARD ON 35 SET WITH THE TAX RED LIGHT THE CHART WILL CHINK WHEN WE SET TAX RATE AND THE TAX RED LIGHT IS SET TO WHERE WE COLLECT ENOUGH REVENUE BASED ON OUR CERTIFIED VALUE TO COVER OUR DEBT PAYMENT FOR THE NEXT FISCAL YEAR. WHAT THE CALCULATED RATE FROM DALLAS COUNTY BASE ODZ THE CERTIFIED VALUE THE RED LIGHT HAS TO BE SET.

FOR GET SERVICE FUNDS. >> SO IN THE PAST COUPLE YERS WE MAINTAINED OUR INS RATE.

THE SAME TO PRESERVE BONDING CAPACITY. AND -- THAT'S SOMETHING WE ARE NOT DISCUSSING ABOUT DOING THIS YEAR. UPON FROM THIS PRESENTATION, RIGHT? DOES ITMIC SENSE TO -- I'M JUST TALKING, GUYS.

DOES ITMIC SENSE TO FUNDS THAT CONCRETE THROUGH A SHORT TERM NOTE TO PRESERVE THE INS RATE FOR A MAY BOND? I THINK WE WOULD HAVE ALREADY HAVE TO ISSUED THE DEBT WE CAN'T ADJUST THAT TAX RATE NOW WE COULD NEXT I DON'T REMEMBER IF WE CHOSE.

>> YOU ARE RIGHT. IF WE CHOSE. >> YOU A IF WE

CHOSE. >> YOU A IF WE CHOSE.

>> YOU ARE RIGHT. IF WE CHOSE. >> YOU A IF WE

CHOSE. >> YOU ARE RIGHT. IF WE CHOSE. >> YOU ARE RIGHT. IF WE CHOSE.

>> YOU ARE RIGHT.Y IF WE CHOSE. >> YOU ARE RIGHT.E IF WE CHOSE. >> YOU ARE RIGHT.A IF WE CHOSE.

>> YOU AR IF WE CHOSE. >> YOU ARE RIGHT. I LIKE WHERE YOUR HEAD IS, MAYOR. I'M KEEP LOWERING IT WE HAVE TO GET IT BECOME AT SOME POINT.

JOY I AGREE WE WILL HAVE TO FUND THESE CAPITOL NEEDS. WHAT WE ADOPTED LAST YEAR WAS THE.219. WE ARE AT 22 CENT RANGE. OKAY.

AND -- DO WE HAVE ANY UPDATED ESTIMATES OF BONDING CAPACITY? THAT WE SHOULD START LOOKING AT SOON? AS SOON AS WE GET MORE SOLID CERTIFIED NUMBER OCTOBER THAT FINAL CERTIFIED NUMBER I WILL SEND THAT OFF TO HILL TOP AND WE WILL GET CLOSER NOW WE ARE AT 36 MILLION THE NEXT THREE YEARS I DON'T EXPECT TELL BE MORE. NOWHERE NEAR WHEN WE NEED.

ON -- 36. END OF 35 OVER TO 36 AND 37 WE MOVE TO THE EMPLOYEE HEALTH BENEFITS FUNDS AND WELLNESS PROGRAM. WE ARE PRET MUCH STAYING IN THE ON OUR -- REVENUES THE CITY IS INCREASING A BIT OF FUNDING DUE TO THE MIX AND PEOPLE ON THE

[01:25:03]

PLAN. AND THE EXPENSE ARE GOING UP ABOUT THE SAME RATE SO WE CAN BALANCE THE FUND FOR THE FISCAL YEAR. THE RATES FOR EMPLOYEES AT THIS POINT ARE NOT PARTICIPATEED GO UP SINCE WHERE WE WORKD THAT OUT WE ARE NOT GIVING RAISES AND PREMIUMS WOULD NOT INCREASE AS WELL. DO WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ON THE REVENUES OR EXPENSES OF THAT EMPLOYEE HEALTH BENEFIT'S FUND. WHY ONE THING I WOULD AM ASK RICH AFTERWARD ARE YOU ON THE PHONE? YES.

I AM HERE. HOW DOES OUR WELLNESS PROGRAM COMPARE TO BEST PRACTICES? ARE WE IT FEELS LIKE WE IT THE SAME WELLNESS PROGRAM FOR A FEW YEARS NOW.

ARE WE KEEPING IT FRESH OR MAKING SURE WE ARE IN BEST PRACTICES AREA? I WOULD SAY THAT -- WE ARE IN MOST CASES BEYOND WHERE MOST ORGANIZATIONS TAKE WELLNESS TO.

UM -- SO, THERE ARE THINGS WE COULD DO THAT WOULD TAKE US PEDESTRIAN PAST WHERE WE ARE NOW. SPOUSES ALLOW THEM TO VOLUNTARILY PARTICIPATE.

WE COULD MOVE TOWARD ACTUAL LOW ADJUSTING COSTS RELATED PEOPLE'S ACTUAL BEHAVIORS.

AND SO -- THERE ARE THINGS YOU COULD GO AND DO BUT MOST HAVE NOT TAKEN WELLNESS TO THE SAME PLACE WE HAVE. MOST PLACES CURRENTLY YOU KNOW YOU ARE ON YOUR HONEST OR OR GOING TO DO THINGS AND THEY MAKE ADJUSTMENTS WE HOLD PEOPLE A COUNTABLE MEASURES ACTUALLY LOOK LOOK AT AND THEN WE ASK POEM TO DO THINGS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES.

NOW WE HAVE EXPANDD THAT TO THE POINT UPON WHERE -- YOU WOULD ALMOST HAVE TO DO ALMOST CONSCIOUS LOW DO NOTHING IN YOUR LIFE TO NOT TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF FROM A BEST PRACTICE PERSPECTIVE THE FWOEL TO GET PEOPLE IT TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES.

THAT MEANS DIRECTING THEM THE BEST YOU CAN WE DO THAT. .

USING A LIGHT WHICH TO GET THEM TO THE MOST COST EFFECTIVE OUTCOME AND DO WHEN THEY NODE TO DO. INCLUDING A WELLNESS COORDINATOR.

ONE ONE WORK WITH THEM. WO WE ARE PAST WHERE MOST CITIES ARE NOT NECESSARY LOW MAY BE PAST WHERE MICROSOFT OR LIKE THAT IS.

IF QUESTION DON'T HAVE FURTHER QUESTIONS ON THIS WE HAVE COVERED EVERYTHING WE HAD SCHEDULED TO COVER TONIGHT. I DON'T KNOW IF BRIAN HOW YOU FEEL IF WE CAN WING IT TO MOVE ON THE ENTERPRISE FUND THIS IS MAY SAVE TIME NEXT THURSDAY AND GET BACK ON THE QUESTIONS YOU HAD. I HAVE TAKEN NOTES ON. IF YOU LIKE TO MOVE TO THE

ENTERPRISE FUNDS OR C IP TONIGHT? >> I WOULD LIKE TO DO THIS

>> MY CONCERN IS WILL YOU EVERA HAS RESCHEDULED THE START TIME TO 6:45 ON THURSDAY.

I WAS HOPING WE COULD STILL START AT 6 AND HAVE THE RESIDENCE LOUGZ AFTER THE 72 HOURS IS THAT NOT POSSIBLE? BUT -- THAT IS WHAT I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT WE WOULD HAVE DONE, MAYOR. WE WERE TRYING TO GET TO 6:45 OR 7 O'CLOCK FOR THE RESOLUTION PART TELEVISION AND STILL START AT 6:00 LAURA? THAT FACTORS IN TO WHETHER WE KEEP GOING TONIGHT IN SOME REGARDS. MAYOR, I THINK THAT BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO TAKE THINGS OUT OF EVERED THAT STARTING THE MEETING AT 6.

. 45 PUTS US ON THE SAFE SIDE. I DON'T HAVE TO TAKE THINGS OUT OF ORDER BUT WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO, COUNCIL? EVERYBODY OKAY GOING THROUGHOUT

[01:30:04]

ENTERPRISE FUNDS OR C IP. >> YEA. Y LET'S DOT ENTERPRISE FUNDS IF

THIS IS OKAY. IOOKAY. >> C IP FOR THURSDAY IS THAT IS

THE ORIGINAL PLAN. WHAT DO Y'ALL THINK >> WE CAN LEAVE THE C IP FOR

THURSDAY. >> THAT'S FINE >> YEP.

>> THEY PUT A LIST OF STUFF THIS CAN BE A CONVERSATION DO THAT THURSDAY.

>> WHAT PAGE? PAGE 28. MORE GOOD NEWS.

>> YES. IT IS. BECAUSE I WANT TOP NULL UP FOR YOU AND SHARE MY SCREEN. LAURA DOES NOT HAVE THIS IS IT OKAY IF I SHARE THIS, LAURA?

OR I CAN E MAIL IT TO YOU. GENTLEMAN AHEAD. >> OKAY.

CAN YOU ALL SEE THIS RATE PLAN? NO. WENDI IF YOU PUT IT IN SHARE POINT I WILL FULL FROM THERE. GIVE ME A SECOND,IL DO THIS. WILL YOU EVERA IT IS IN THERE FOR THE THURSDAY NIGHT'S MEETING. WHILE SHE IS PULLING THAT UP.

I DON'T SEE A FOLDER FOR THURSDAY UNDER PRESENTATIONS. IS IT IN DRAFTS? I THOUGHT I PUT IT IN THE PRESENTATIONS MAY BE I DIDN'T. I WILL LOOK QUICK.

I WAS WONDERING CAN YOU SHOW YOUR FACE. YES, MA'AM, I'M HERE.

WE HAVE EXTRA FUNDS WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT AND ONE OF THE YOURS THIS I THINK HAS I HAVE BEENMENTING TO PUT MORE RESOURCES IS CRISIS INNERVENTION PROGRAM.

HAVE Y'ALL BEGIN THOUGHTS OF SOME TYPE OF SOCIAL SERVICES PERSON TO HELP YOUR OFFICER J.

J. OUT IN THAT AREA? AND IF YOU HAVE IN THE THOUGHT ABOUT THIS COULD YOU THINK ABOUT THAT? AND TALK ABOUT THAT? WE HAVE HAD DISCUSSIONS.

AND WE HAVE GIVEN IT CONSIDERATION. AND TO BE MONEVERHONEST WHAT WE WOULD LIKE FIRST BEFORE WE GO FURTHER WITH THAT PROGRAM TO ADD ANOTHER POLICE OFFICER TO ASSIST J. J. HIGH IS SOVIET UNION HE IS STRETCHED SO THIN BUT SO GOOD AT WHEN HE DOES AND WELL TRAIND AND EXPERIENCE SAID THAT AT THIS POINT HE DOES EVERYTHING A SOCIAL WORKER DOES. I THINK WE WOULD BENEFIT MOST FROM PUTTING A SECOND POLICE OFFICER TO BE ABLE TO COVER THE CITY BETTER AND THE DAYS AND HOURS BETTER AND TRAIN THEM AND OFFER THEM THE SAME EXPERIENCE. WE HAVE A COUPLE OF OFFICERS HERE WHO HAVE EDUCATION AND BACKGROUND IN PSYCHOLOGY, SOCIAL WORK AND COLLEGE DEGREES AND SIGNIFICANT EXPERIENCE AT OUR DEPA DEPARTMENT -- J. J. NEEDS HELP. THE PROGRAM THE SYSTEM IS SIX YEARS OLD. AND AS OF AUGUST FIRST I BELIEVE IT WAS WE CREATE TODAY 2047.

AND IT HAS GROWN IN SIZE JUST INCREDIBLE LOW. SERVICE MORE NOW THAN HE WOULD HAVE DRAEMENT. LAST MONTH 236 CONTACTS FOR ONE RALPH.

WORK 60 HOURS A WEEK HIS PHONE NEVER STOPS. SOCIAL WORKERS THEY ARE VALUABLE THEY CAN WORK 2/7 AND CAN'T RESPONDED TO LOCATIONS WITHOUT ASSISTANCE.

I THINK AND RECOMMEND MY FIRST STEP TOOD ANOTHER POLICE OFFICER ASK DO WHEN J. J. DOES AND BEGIN ADDING SOCIAL WORKERS SO AND COUNCIL, I REALLY THINK WITH SOME OF THE FUNDS THIS IS WE HAVE AVAILABLE TO US AS A RESULT

[01:35:02]

OF THE TAX ASSESSMENT ROLES WE NEED TO VERY CONSIDER GETTING RESOURCE TO THE CRISIS

INTERVENTION PROGRAM. >> I GOTTA BELIEVE I'M SURE YOU WOULD SUPPORT THE STATEMENT, CHIEF THAT HAVING THAT POSITION HAS REDUCED THE BETTER THAN ON THE REGULAR OFFICERS JUST TREMENDOUS LOW. IT HAS. I GRE AND IF J. J. COULD BE HER 24/7 HE WOULD. A SECOND OFFICER WOULD HELP THEY CAN WORK OTHER WOKE DAY ANDS WEEKENDS RATHER THEN AND THERE WORRYING ABOUT PHONE CALLS AND TEXTS AND ALL HOURS OF THE

NIGHT, DAYS AND WEEKENDS. >> I WOULD SUPPORT ANOTHER OFFICER.

WHAT IS THE PAY ON THAT A YEAR? ARE WE THINKING FOR BUDGETING? IT IS A STATE POLICE OFFICER POSITION. OKAY. IT WOULD BE -- I DON'T SEE WHY WELL IS NO REASON WHY -- STARTING PAY INCLUDING ALL BENEFIT SYSTEM 1 HUH THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR FOR AN OFFICER.

>> ARE YOU HAVE TALKING ABOUTENT ROW LEVEL. >> YES.

>> BUT THIS POSITION WOULD BE A 5 TO 10 YEAR VETERAN WHO HAS TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE AND THE EDUCATION TO SUPPORT IT SO THEY COULD SLOID IN WITH LITTLE ADDITIONAL TROUBLE OR A NICE,

SMOOTH TRANSITION. >> WITH A NOW RECRUIT YOU MIGHT --

>> I'M SORRY? I SAID YOU MIGHT BACK FILL IF IT COME OUT OF YOUR PATROL YOU MAY BACK FILL WITH A NEW RECRUIT. IOTHAT'S WHAT I'M THINKING TAKE SOMEONE WITH THE EXPERIENCE AND BECOME GRUND THAT YOU ALREADY HAVE ON THE FORCE AND JUST TRNZIFICATION THEM TO THAT POSITION. I WOULD CERTAINLY CONSIDER THIS I KNOW JUDGMENT JUDGMENT NEEDS HELP. WHY THIS IS MY MRE WITH THE FIRST AND HIGHEST USE OF THESE I DON'T KNOW IF THAT THE SEA MANAGER'S FIRST PLEA BUT IT IS MINE.

IODO YOU KNOW IF WE WILL PURCHASE ANOTHER VEHICLE THROUGH THE LOSE LEASE PROGRAM IT WOULD BE BETTER IF THE INDIVIDUAL HAD THEIR OWN VEHICLE. FOR THE AMOUNT OF DRIVEWAYING AND TRAVEL ANDING VISITING IT WOULD BE I DEAL IF WE COULD NOT WE WOULD WORK IT OUT BUT THAT WOULD BE NICE J. J. HAS AN ASSIGNED VEHICLE AND HIS PART NOR HAVE ONE TO WORK SPLITLY AND

COVER MORE YOUR AND CONTACT THAT WILLS BE IDEAL. >> WE GOTTA GET RID OF THE LAST

CROWN VICK. SUPPOSED TO BE GONE THIS WEEK. >> OKAY.

WERE ARE YOU WAITING ON US. >> I FOUND IT. IT IS 90 THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR FOR A POLICE OFFICER WITH BENEFITS. AND IF WE CONSIDER ANOTHER VEHICLE I THINK THAT IS ANOTHER 50 THOUSAND DOLLARS ON TOP OF IT.

UNLESS WE DOT LEASE PROGRAM. IOTRUE BUT -- WELL, WE WILL TALK MORE ABOUT IT ON THURSDAY THE LEASE PROGRAM WILL BE TO SCHEDULE WE PLACEMENT OF EXISTING RATHER THAN NEW ONES.

REPOLICING THE CROWN VICK. >> YEA. >> I'M TEASING.

THANK YOU. IOLAURA PULLED UP THE LEFT TIME WE SPOKE WE HAD TALKED ABOUT COUNCIL HAD BEEN PRESENTED FROM DAN JACKSON RED LIGHT PLANS 1 THROUGH THREE.

AND COUNCIL ASKED WE COME BACK AND INCLUDE IN THE PROSECUTE POSED BUDGET THE 5% WATER DECREASE INCLUDING THE 562 THOUSAND DOLLARS FROM THE HONEYWELLEASE KEEP THAT AND MOVE IT TO MAINTAIN OUR SUPPORT TO INFRASTRUCTURE FOR THE WATER AND SUE ARE INFRASTRUCTURE. AND THIS WE WOULD PUT THIS 5 WATER TO SHOW 5% WATER DECREASE ON THE LOWEST TIER SO EVERYBODY BENEFITS REGARDLESS OF HOW MUCH USE OF WATER. THAT'S WHAT WE ARE SHOW YOU GO FOR THE FIRST TIME TONIGHT IS THIS RATE PLAN 4 WHICH PUTS SAVING IN THIS FIRST TIER OFVILLE UM RATE THREAP,000 GALLONS OF WATER USE. I CAN E NAIL TO YOU IF YOU DON'T HAVE A COPY SO YOU CAN LOOK AT IT CLOSER. BUT THIS IS WHAT IS REFLECTED IN THE PROPOSED BUDGET AND ALONG WITH THIS, WE ARE PROSECUTE POSING A REF NEW REDUCTION IN

[01:40:07]

WATER CHARGES OF OVER HALF MILLION DOLLARS IN TOTAL A REDUCTION OF REVENUE 106 WE ARE STILL DOING VERY WELL IN THE FUND WE'RE ABLE TO DO THAT THE WATER AT NORTH TEXAS WATER DISTRICT AND THE CITY OF GARLEFT LANED DECIDED NOTO THE INCREASE THEIR FEES TO THE CITY WE ARE NOT INCREASING PAST. THROUGH THE WATER DISTRICT OVER TO THE CONSUMER.

>> I WOULD JUST CLARIFY WE WANT TO FOIND A WAY TO REDUCE THE RATES FOR THOSE THIS NEEDD THAT

REDUCTION THE MOST. >> YES. IOOUR OBJECTIVE WAS NOT TO HAVE EVERY R RESIDENTS IT WAS TO HELP THOSE THIS NEEDED THE MOST HELP.

THE WILTO DO THIS IS PUT IT IN THE BASE RATE OR LOWEST VOLUME RATE.

HAS THE AFFECT OF HELPING EVERYBODY ACROSS THE CITY TO DIFFERENT LEVELS BUT IT HELPS THOSE THAT ARE THE LOW WATER USERS AND THE WITHINS THIS NODE THE HELP THE MOST IT HELPS THEM

THE MOST. YOU ARE CORRECT >> COUNCILMEMBER BROWN: IT IS A

GREAT APPLICATION OF THOSE SAVINGS AND GOOD NEWS. >> ONE OF THE GOOD BAPTIST NEWS ALSO, COUNCIL ON THIS. THIS IS THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW THAT WE REDUCED OUR WATER RATES AND SO -- YOU KNOW BY OVER THREE DOLLARS PER MONTH. COMMERCIAL ACCOUNTS WILL BENEFIT FROM THAT. YEA. I WOULD LIKE TO SAY ONCE AGAIN.

BECAUSE I FEEL BEARS REPEATING THAT THE EFFORTS THIS -- OUR MAYOR AND CITY MANAGER HAVE DONE IN LETTING OUR VOICE BE HEARD ABOUT PAY AND INCREASES TO THE NORTH TEXAS MUNICIPAL WATER DISTRICT GOING DOWN TO AUSTIN TO SPEAK BEFORE THE PUC. THIS STUFF DOES NOT JUST HAPPEN.

IT HAPPENED BECAUSE OF THE PROACTIVE STANCE THAT OUR MAYOR AND OUR CITY MANAGER HAS TAKEN.

TO GO AND FIGHT FOR US. AND SO I JUST THINK THIS NEEDSES TO BE RECOGNIZED WE CAN'T SAY IT ENOUGH. WE WERE HAVING 10% INCREASES EVERY YEAR AND THEY WERE PREDICTED FOR THE NEXT 10 YEARS AND YET, HOAR WE ARE BECAUSE YOU GUYS WENT AND REPRESENTED US SO WELL. I HAVE TO SAY THAT. THANK YOU.

WE ARE STILL FIGHTING FOR THE PUBLIC OUT THERE. WE ARE STILL IN THE FIGHT.

AND IT IS STILL IS A FIGHT. SO -- WE ARE NOT THROWING OUR HANDS UP WE ARE STILL DOING EVERYTHING WE CAN DO TO BE REPRESENTED. YES, WE ARE SEEING THE RESULTS

OF YOUR EFFORT THEY ARE MUCH APPRECIATED >> YOU KNOW THIS TO ME IS AKIN TO THE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT WE HAD OVER THE YEARS OF WHY DO WE REDUCE THE TAX RATE IT IS THREE DOLLARS PER PERSON PER MONTH AND -- IT CAUSES US TO LOSE 500 THOUSAND DOLLARS IN THE ENTERPRISE FUND. IT IS IRRELEVANT HARD TO FIGHT PAST THAT STATEMENT.

IT IS SO PERSONALITY THE ENTERPRISE FUND THIS IS WE ARE RECOOPING OUR COSTS AND NOT CHARGING RESIDENCE DENLTS THE EXTRA FUNDS AND IMPORTANT IT LOWER THE TEXT RED LIGHT AND LOWER THE WATER FEE WHEN IS WE CAN EVEN THOUGH IT SEEMS SO SMALL ON A MONTH-TO-MONTH BASES ON A PER HOUSEHOLD BASIS IT IS VERY YOU KNOW IMPACTFUL FO TO OUR ENTIRE BUDGET AND PERSONALITY THIS WE DO THAT FOR OUR RESIDENTS. SO.

YOU WANT TO GO BACK TO THE OTHER SLIDE? WHICH OTHER SLOID.

I'M AT THE BACK TO THE BUDGET DOCUMENT. PAGE 28.

WE ARE -- TWINE THAT IS THE OVER VIEW OF THE WATER CHARGES. WE HAVE CUT OUR NEXT IN HALF.

WE MADE THAT A STANDARD PRACTICE ACROSS THE BOARD FOR NEXT YEAR WITH THE UNKNOWN OF THE ECONOMY.

[01:45:05]

OF WHAT HAPPENED WITH OUR WATER RATES COMMERCIAL AND MULTIFAMILY? IF YOU WANT TO LAURA PULL THIS BECOME UP. I KNOW IT WAS ON THAT CHART BUT WE NEED -- WE HAD A MULTIYEAR FLOON GET THOSE TO MARKET XRAET NOT DO IT ALL IN YEAR ONE.

IF WE LOOK AT SLIDE LAURA AT SLIDE 9. WE GOT IT GROUPED BY WATER AND WASTEWATER TOTAL FOR RESIDENTIAL AND DIFFERENT STANDARD SIZED MNTH LOW BILLS AND THE COMMERCIAL AND MULTIFAMILY. THE SAVINGS -- WOULD BE IN THAT FORECAST OCTOBER 2020 COLUMN.

YELLOW HIGHLIGHT. MAYOR, YOU MIREMEMBER THIS -- ON THE MULTIFAMILY, WE HIT THAT TARGET FOR THE CURRENT FISCAL YEAR WE NOW MADE THAT YOU WANT GAP.

THANK YOU. OKAY. WE ARE NOT PSZING THAT SAVINGOS BECAUSE WE'RE AT THE MARKET BUT ARE PASSING IT TO RESIDENTIAL CUSTOMERS BECAUSE WE STILL ARE

HIGH TO MARKET FOR THEM? >> YES, MA'AM >> OKAY.

BACK TO THE BUDGET ON PAGE 30. THE BIG DIFFERENCE PROSECUTE POSED BUDGET TO ADOPTED BUDGET FOR UTILITY ARE IN THAT OTHER PURCHASE SERVICES AND SUPPLIES THAT IS THAT 562,000 SAVING FROM HONEYWELLOSE. WE ADD TODAY DOWN TO THE TRANSFERS OUT TO GO TO CASH MINTENANCE PROGRAM. THE REASON WE SHOW THE DROP IS BECAUSE WITHIN THAT, WE HAVE REDUCED 2 MILLION DOLLARS FROM LEFT YEAR WE SHIFT THIRD DEGREE DOWN TO OUR BOND FUNDED PROGRAM.

SO -- THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN 2 MILLION DOLLARS HIGHER HAD WE NOT SHIFT THIRD DEGREE TO A 7 MILLION DOLLARS BOND ISSUANCE THIS SUMMER INSIDE OF 5 MILLION WE HAVE DONE.

>> THAT COME OUT TO A SAVING IN THE TRANSFERS OUT TO OUR CASH C IP BY SHIFTING THAT TO THE BOND FUNDSES. AND OVER IN QUESTIONS OVER IN THE REFUSE FUND? I WILL PULL THIS OUT. THE REFUSE FUNDS IS THE RED LIGHTS ARE ADJUSTED 80 PERCENT OF THE CPI OF DIESEL COST IN DALLAS. EACH YEAR FROM OCTOBER FIRST FROM SEPTEMBER SO SEPTEMBER THE CPI ADJUST DIESEL COST ADJUSTMENT.

THE RESIDENTIAL LIKE THE FOR THE GALLON VERY SMALL INCREASE TO OUR SOLID WASTE IS 18 CENTS A MONTH FOR RESIDENTIAL FIRST 96 GALLON. IT GOT SMALL INFORMATIONS THIS YEAR AND THIS WAS DUE TO THE ACTUAL DIESEL COSTS WENT DOWN. BY A BIT SO THE TOTAL INCREASE BE WAS BEING IT WAS -- UPON 1% INCREASE OVER ALL? VERY SMALL.

AND OF OVER IN THE DRAINAGE FUND THIS IS JUST THE SET AMOUNT. THIS YEAR.

AND THERE IS NO INCREASE IN THAT DRAINAGE RATE. SO I KNOW COVID-19 SCREWED EVERYTHINGUM AND PUSHED EVERYTHING BACK 6 MONTHS OR MORE YOU MENTIONED YOU THINK WE GET ON SEE THE REDO OF THE SCHEDULE FOR THIS THIS FALL OR SPRING? YOU THINK THAT IS A REALISTIC

TIME FRAME. >> NOT SURE. CAN YOU SPEAK TO THIS?
