This report tr ansmits the FY2011/12 Proposed Operating Budget details for theEconomic Development, General Services, Transportation, Utilities, and Support Departments.Details of the department’s Operating Budgets are provided in the Background section of thisreport (Attachments 1-7).
Policy Considerations:
After three consecutive years of reductions, the City continues themonumental task of rightsizing the organization. Given the size of the challenge, and the fact thatongoing efforts to align revenues and expenditures have not been able to keep pace with therevenue declines in prior years and significant year-to-year expenditure increases, it is critical thatfuture reduction efforts reflect the need to initiate major permanent changes to ensure long-termfiscal sustainability.On May 12, 2011, the City Council approved the following parameters to be used for reconsideration of cuts:
FY2011/12 actionsneed to be considered within a multi-year context; the budgetprocess must be a continuous conversation.
The Reserve for Economic Uncertainty will not be used.
One-time cuts will not be used to replace permanent cuts.
Any new revenue proposals will not beused until implemented.
Any labor concessions will be used to mitigate reductions in that bargaining group onlyduring the concession period.Closing the gap will require difficult decisions about program priorities and levels of service,and will require discipline to ensure that the solutions implemented address the City’s long-term financial challenges.
Environmental Considerations:California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA):
This report concerns administrative activitiesthat will not have any significant effect on the environment, and that do not constitute a"project" as defined by CEQA [CEQA Guidelines Sections 15061(b)(3); 15378(b)(2)].
: Not applicable.
Commission/Committee Action:
Not applicable.
Rationale for Recommendation:
The severe economic downturn impacting the nation, state,and City require that significant budget reductions be implemented in order to stabilize theCity’s budget and continue the process of returning the General Fund budget to sustainability.
Financial Considerations
: The City must close the $39 million gap between revenues and expensesin the General Fund to achieve a fiscally sustainable budget. The deficit will persist unless permanentcorrective actions are taken to change the City’s revenue and cost structures as well as thecomplement of services delivered in order to create a financially sustainable way to meet the mostcritical needs of our community. The following summarizes the proposed reductions by department:
