AGENDA ITEM NO. 1: Budget Workshop to discuss FY08-09.
Discussion of the General Fund Budget, continued from the April 28, 2008 budget meeting, began with a presentation from Fire Chief Jimmy Gibson. Chief Gibson addressed the needs of the department citing the largest needs were in the areas of equipment and training. The proposed budgets of Fire Prevention, Fire Suppression and Fire Training were outlined and discussed.
The Commission also reviewed the following General Fund operating budgets: Emergency Management, Human Resources, Municipal Court, City Clerk, Code Enforcement, Planning, LEPC, Engineering, Streets, Traffic Control, Parks, Cemetery, Municipal Auditorium, Community Center, Senior Center, Equipment Services and Building Maintenance.
The Commission then reviewed the Shawnee Municipal Authority budget, beginning with projected revenues. It was noted by Stephen Nolen, Systems Administrator, that revenues have been down the last two years, while expenses have remained the same. The need to increase water rates was discussed. It was noted that the previously approved rate study would not be ready for 90 to 120 days. Mayor Mills directed staff to prepare a water rate increase proposal, based upon comparisons with other cities, to be presented to Commissioners by the May 19th City Commission meeting.
The following SMA operating accounts were reviewed: Utility Billing, Utility Administration, Lake Operations, Water Production, Water Distribution, North Sewer Treatment Plant, South Sewer Treatment Plan and Sewer Collection.
The Commission then reviewed SMA Capital construction and equipment requests.
Also discussed was the City assuming responsibility for the Wes Watkins Reservoir later this year. The Pottawatomie County Development Authority will show a $98,000 deficit this year, which will necessitate the City taking this action. Mayor Mills stated that both the City of Shawnee and the City of Tecumseh are in discussion regarding this and are both trying to protect a future water supply.
AGENDA ITEM NO. 2: Adjournment.
There being no further business to come before the meeting, a motion was made by Vice Mayor Peterson, seconded by Commissioner O’Neal, that the meeting be adjourned. Motion carried 5-0. (9:00 p.m.)
