Meeting Called to Order at 7:00PM
Review of Accounts Payable
Discussion of various items on the list with satisfactory answers to all questions.
Payables Approved by the Finance Committee for submission to Council.
Review of July Financial Statements
The Financial Statement review indicates that revenues for the first seven months were lower than the budgeted amount, the reason being significantly lower RITA revenues. At this point we are forecasting a deficit for the year. The recession of 2008 and 2009 appears to be having a delayed but significant impact on our revenues this year. Relocation of certain residents also has taken a significant toll. Expenses are generally in line with the budgeted amounts.
Mobile Computers for the Police Cars
Discussed again. John and the chief made some excellent points, however, based on financial issues the consensus is that we have maintained a very safe community and would recommend postponing implementation.
Service Dept. Reorganization
Finance committee after much discussion continues to be opposed to making service dept. employees full time. Finance committee suggests hiring additional part time employees.
Health Care Insurance
The Finance Committee recommends that to control costs in the future and to bring ourselves more into line with other employers that we begin to pass a portion of the costs on to the covered employees. Wendy presented a plan which she will present to council.
Other Discussion Items
We discussed the need to begin work on the 2011 budget early in order to identify how we move forward.
