CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 19

Meeting Date: June 10, 2003

Subject/Title: Approve a resolution adopting the 2003/04-2004/05 Final Budget for the City of Brentwood

Submitted by: Pamela Ehler, Director of Finance and Information Systems

Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a resolution adopting the 2003/04-2004/05 Final Budget for the City of Brentwood.

PREVIOUS ACTION
The Preliminary budget was presented at the June 10, 2003, workshop for City Council comments and review.

BACKGROUND
As discussed in the Budget Message, the City’s Operating Budget of $180.9 million and the Redevelopment Agency’s Budget of $7.4 million adhere to the City Council’s Goals and Objectives. In accordance with the Budget Development Guidelines, this budget is free from reliance upon non-recurring revenue sources and does not commit to spending more than realistic estimates of revenues. In order to keep up with the fast pace of growth, the Budget will be reviewed quarterly, or sooner if necessary, to allow the City Council to respond to changes in the economy or development community in a timely manner.

GENERAL FUND
The General Fund Balance, projected for June 2004, increased from $ 15,718,447 to $ 16,187,436.

The General Fund Budget includes:
? Four (4) Police Officers to comply with 1.5 sworn positions per 1,000 residents
? $179,268 for Police Activities League Program
? New Staff for Arts Commission in FY 2004/05
? Contribution of $432,000 for Fire Department/EMT Services
? Continued support to the Library of $97,611
? Funding for the new Accounting Software

CITY RENTALS
Retained earnings for June 30, 2004 is projected to be $2,845,090 for the City Rental Enterprise (Brentwood Education and Technology Center). Approximately 25 tenants are renting space at the Technology Center. Goals for next year include reaching a 90% occupancy rate which will be aided by the remodeling of larger areas into smaller space.

PARKS AND RECREATION ENTERPRISE FUND
As a result of the fee study which was completed this fiscal year, revenues for fiscal year 2003/04 and 2004/05 have been projected based on the fee study. This budget also includes a $150,000 transfer of funds from the Redevelopment Agency to purchase a portable stage. Retained earnings for this enterprise is projected to be $1,667,312 as of June 30, 2004.

SOLID WASTE ENTERPRISE FUND
The retained earnings for the Solid Waste Enterprise Fund is projected to be $777,022 by June 30, 2004. A rate study is expected to be completed by September 2003 which will include building a new facility to accommodate ultimate build-out growth of future years.

WATER ENTERPRISE FUND
The Water Enterprise Fund is projected to have retained earnings of $2,649,519 at June 30, 2004. The rate study has been completed and this budget includes revenue projections based on the new tiered rate structure. This fund includes a new division for non-potable water which is treated at the wastewater treatment plant and sold for irrigation or industrial purposes.

WASTEWATER ENTERPRISE FUND
Retained earning for June 30, 2004 is projected to be $41,137,541. The end of fiscal year 2002/03 also brings the completion of the Wastewater Treatment Plant. The completion of the Plant will ensure that treatment facilities are available for the expected growth of the City.

BUDGET ASSUMPTIONS FOR ALL FUNDS

Effective July 1, 2003, the City Council changed the pay policy for 10% above the mean to the 85th percentile on designated cities. This budget reflects this change.

Insurance costs have increased commensurate with the insurance claims that have arisen within the Joint Powers Authority membership of which the City of Brentwood is a member. This budget includes estimated increases for health insurance of 20% and property insurance of 31%.
