Overview: The Marketing and Economic Development budget includes funding for promoting local tourism and other
types of economic development in Lake County. Much of the funding in this budget is from the unexpended balance
of prior year carry-overs for special projects to facilitate local economic development. The objective of this program
is to create new private sector jobs and improve the overall quality of life in Lake County.

Funding Sources: Much of the funding in this budget unit is from prior year one-time discretionary revenues
appropriated for specifc projects that are being carried over to this year’s budget. General marketing functions,
including salaries and benefts, routine operational costs and advertising and promotional expenses, are fnanced by
Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) and TOT in-lieu revenues. The estimated revenue from TOT in this budget refects
8/9ths of the total TOT revenue. The remaining 1/9th

is estimated in the Parks and Recreation budget unit per Board

policy.

A signifcant decrease in TOT revenue occurred beginning in FY 09/10 due to the general state of the economy,
the tourism industry and most signifcantly the closure of Konocti Harbor Resort and Spa. In addition to traditional
TOT, revenue is also provided from the TOT in-lieu agreement with Harbin Hot Springs and contributions from the
Konocti Vista Resort/RV Park/Casino, Twin Pine Casino, Running Creek Casino, the City of Lakeport, and the City of
Clearlake. One-time money in the amount of $15,000 was added to increase advertising and promotion efforts this
fscal year.

Salaries and Benefts: This budget includes one position, the part-time extra help Economic Development Manager.
Supplemental staff support is provided through other divisions of the County Administrative Offce. This budget unit
reimburses the Administrative Offce budget for staff services.

Services, Supplies and Other: Appropriations are included in the recommended Budget for routine operational
costs such as offce supplies, telephone service, postage, books and periodicals, insurance and transportation.

Professional Services (object code 23.80): This appropriation fnances contracts funded by a combination of grants
and County funds, as follows:

$50,000 to continue contracting with the Lake County Chamber of Commerce to provide visitor services, assist
in promoting Lake County as a visitor destination, and other programs to advance the economic development of
Lake County. Once a new contract for the fscal year is negotiated, it will be presented to the Board for approval.

$15,000 from one-time money to implement the “Economic Development Marketing Strategic Plan” Specifc
recommendations relative to spending this money will be provided by the Tourism Advisory Board;

$10,000 to work with the Clearlake Chamber of Commerce to assist in implementing the Economic Development
Marketing Strategic Plan on specifc projects.

$25,000 for a contract to update and improve the Lake County visitor website.

Special Department Services and Supplies (object code 28.30): $20,000 for business recruitment and attraction
miscellaneous expense is also included in this object code.

FINAL RECOMMENDED BUDGET FY 13/14

C - 46

Advertising and Promotion (object code 28.91): This appropriation of $100,000 provides funding for the Marketing
Program’s advertising and promotional efforts. It is funded by $85,000 from new TOT revenue and $15,000 from
one-time savings from the prior fscal year. During the current economic downturn it is particularly important to
aggressively advertise and promote Lake County as a tourist destination, in order to attract out-of-county visitors who
will stay in local lodging facilities and generate business and tax revenue at other local businesses. Additionally, due
to the closure of Konocti Harbor Resort and the absence of Konocti’s extensive out-of-county advertising program, it
is more important than ever for the County Marketing Program to keep Lake County’s name in Sacramento and Bay
Area publications in order to remind residents of those areas about the other amenities and attractions that make
Lake County a desirable vacation destination. Specifc recommendations relative to spending this money will be
provided by the Tourism Advisory Board.

Law Enforcement (object code 53.54): The budget includes a $50,000 appropriation from TOT funds to reimburse
the Sheriff’s budget for costs of local law enforcement services. Law enforcement services are essential to the
County’s ability to attract visitors and improve local economic development. Current Board policy specifes
that $150,000 per year from TOT funds be allocated to fund law enforcement services; however, in FY 10/11 and
FY 11/12 only $125,000 was provided due to the signifcant decline in TOT revenues as a result of the closure of
Konocti Harbor Resort. In FY 12/13 this amount was further reduced to $50,000. The FY 13/14 Final Recommended
Budget also includes $50,000 of TOT revenues for law enforcement. This allocation will solely be from TOT and
not from other TOT in-lieu payments that may be received pursuant to negotiated agreements with other agencies.

Highway Signage (object code 55.02): The recommended appropriation of $28,500 (from prior year carry-over) will
fnance signage projects that may include billboard advertising, scenic tour signs, lake access signage, informational
kiosks, community identifcation signs and other in-County directional signage projects, including sponsorship and
participation in the Caltrans Tourist Oriented Directional Signs (TODS) program.

Resort Revitalization (object code 55.04): The recommended appropriation consists of $15,000 in funding for
the resort revitalization program which subsidizes the cost of removing dilapidated trailers from resorts and
other highly visibly locations in order to enhance local economic development.

Economic Development—Agricultural (object code 55.08): Like last year, due to the decline in TOT revenues no
funding is included in the recommended budget to contribute to the Lake County Winegrape Commission or the Lake
County Winery Association. Staff will continue closely collaborating and partnering with both organizations and will
provide strong support to the industry through the Marketing Program’s own advertising and promotional efforts.

BU 1901 - INSURANCE AND SURETY

(CAO Staff: Christopher Shaver)

Overview: This budget unit was used to fund the cost of the County’s miscellaneous insurance coverage’s which

public liability premiums attributable to those claims that cannot be distinctly identifed with a particular department.
The costs of the bonds are now budgeted in BU 1120, and the public liability premiums are being budgeted in BU
9919. Therefore, BU 1901 is being closed.

Overview: This budget unit contains the appropriations necessary for the support and maintenance of the County’s
computer systems equipment, including Desktop Support, Network and Infrastructure Support, Software Development
and Support, and GIS Support.

Funding Sources: The primary source of funding for this budget unit is general fund discretionary revenue.
Reimbursements from County departments for PC connection fees and hourly billing for services provided by IT staff
fnances a portion of this budget. Additional funding is received through the countywide cost allocation plan deposited
in Budget Unit 1120. Revenues are expected to increase slightly over the last fscal year.

Salaries and Benefts: The recommended appropriation removes funding for 1.5 unflled positions. The Department
has been operating effectively and does not anticipate the need to fll those positions.

Services and Supplies: This portion of the budget funds maintenance of computer software and hardware
components, network consulting costs, internet services, dedicated telephone lines used for data transmission
between various locations, maintenance agreements for computer related equipment, network security software and
other software licensing. The appropriation for Services and Supplies is similar to the prior year. After several years
of delaying Microsoft Offce Suite upgrades, one-time money ($40,000) is appropriated for upgrading General Fund
departments. Self-funded departments will upgrade as funds are available. Support for Offce 2003 ended in June,
necessitating the upgrade.

Inventory Items and Capital Assets: In Capital Assets, $58,000 is carried over from the prior year for microwave
equipment upgrades. The equipment will allow the continued expansion of the county-owned WAN sites. This
was the lower priority of the upgrades completed last year and was not fnalized before the end of FY 12/13.
Four network switches are needed to replace out of support equipment and non-standard hardware in the County
network. One-time money is appropriated in the Inventory Items account to fund the total cost of $9,050.
