JUNE BUDGET WORKSHOP NO FISCAL YEAR BUDGET FORMAT Innovation will serve to keep the plan in the forefront of all that we do. Our actions should always be advancing the Plan. Operation Innovation
Innovation of the Business Plan This continues the evolution of the City’s fiscal transformation efforts to produce a more transparent document, greater accountability to the citizens, and improve the accuracy, efficiency and timeliness of financial information. Today’s purpose is to solicit City Council direction of the previously adopted budget process, format, and key management principals.

FY Budget Format There will be separate documents for workshops versus public hearings in September. All documents will be disseminated electronically. The Fiscal Managers/Department Heads for the service areas will be involved in the presentation of their respective budgets. All budgetary decisions will be tied to one or more goals in the Strategic Plan. We are utilizing 7 strategies to balance the budget for FY In FY we successfully accomplished the following: Migration to the State Chart of Accounts for Expenditures Bringing the Internal Service Funds into the budget Budgeting all dollars including reserves Adoption of GASB 54 Fund Balance Policy
Changes Between FY11-12 Budget and FY Certain departmental fee increases will be presented for adoption with the Budget. The Key Management Practices will be reviewed and updated for adoption with the Budget. Exploring plan for migration to State Chart of Accounts for Revenues during FY
7 Strategies being Utilized to Balance the FY Budget 1. Blueprint to Fiscal Sustainability 2. 3% & 10% budget reduction submittals Communications Consolidation 4. Pension Reform 5. Debt Refinancing 6. Interfund Transfers 7. Voluntary Separation Incentive Program
Initiatives Progress A strategic blending of the 3% & 10% cuts have been incorporated into the current budget scenario The Debt refinancing has been incorporated into the current scenario Interfund transfers will be the same as FY11-12 with a decrease of $1.5M from the Police/Fire Mil fund
Items of Discussion TRIM Process Fees & Taxes Revenue Projections Community Redevelopment Area (CRA)funding priorities Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) funding Current General Fund Deficit
Millage Comparison Value of a mil (at 95% collection rate): mil- $3.9M mil- $3.7M * mil- $3.5M * Based on June 1, 2012 Preliminary estimate from Property Appraiser Recommendation for FY is to adopt the rolled- back Rate. This is the Revenue Neutral option.
Fees &Taxes The same services will be provided at the currently established service levels There are no tax increases programmed in the budget The Departmental Service Fee increases recommended in FY are designed to cover the true cost of service The Fire Fee will remain at the current level for Residential and Commercial The comprehensive fee schedule will be presented to Council for adoption along with the Budget
Revenue & Growth Projections We expect CDBG dollars to be flat in FY Tax Revenues (sales tax, communications tax, gas taxes etc) are expected to remain flat We have programmed transfers from the Enterprise funds at the same level as FY11-12 The transfer from the Police/Fire ¼ Mil fund has been reduced to $1M from the $2.5M in FY11-12 (one time revenue source) Any recovery of Economic Improvement Program dollars will roll back into the program to fund future projects We expect a very modest increase in growth of new business and building throughout the City, but expect to budget conservatively
CRA Funding Priorities Funding for projects and ongoing operating are very limited within the CRA. Fund Balance: $3.6M Annual Revenue: $600K Proposed ProjectBudget Estimate Comments Negotiated Demolitions$50,000Ongoing Façade Grant$50,000 Downtown Signage (Merje)$100,000Ongoing Imagine North Magnolia$172,705Ongoing Parking Garage (Land Acquisition)$300,000 Parking Garage (Design)$406,444 Parking Garage Construction$7,500,000Ongoing (Debt Service) Gas Light Parking Lot$80,000/ $600,000Option 1/Option 2 Osceola Linear Park$1,500,000Minimum (SR 40 to NE 5 th Street) Senior Manager, Redevelopment$90,000Ongoing
CIP Funding Plan Bond funds are limited and should run out by year end FY12-13 Project requests exceed funding availability Several projects are multi phase, however funding beyond phase 1 is not presently available (puts additional pressure on the General Fund) Most CIP revenue sources are non recurring in nature Key Management Practices indicate Capital Expenditures: All capital projects planned and budgeted for in any given fiscal year will have funding identified and proven to be available. This means that all projects are subject to funding already received in prior fiscal years. Funds that are earmarked for receipt during the current fiscal year will not be utilized for current year expenditures.
General Fund Assumptions Revenue Assumptions Includes $1 million transfer from fire/police improvements fund 5.1% decrease in property values Assumes that revenues remain flat Expense Assumptions Non-Departmental Operating and Transfers To Other Funds will remain flat Does not include all grant expenses as a majority are brought into the budget after adoption Does not include support to the Ocala Municipal Golf Course Includes approved special requests Does not include OPD's position requests, increase requests, or upgrades Additional 3% request from OPD included for planning purposes only $79,725 moved from OPD's general fund budget to the Police Trust and Agency Fund Does not include reserves
