Request/Question: How do you arrive at a 14-15 budget of $24M? The total revenues on pg_ A-4 for 14-15 are
$17.8M while on pg C-3 they are $18.4M for 14-15 total sources.
r                                                                                                                   ~
Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
The $17.8M figure you refer to is the total General Fund revenue for FY14-15. It does not include "transfers-in"
from other, "non-General Fund" funds. This does not take into consideration revenues that are recognized in
funds other than the General Fund.
The $18.4M includes the $17.8M plus transfers to the General Fund and one time reclassification of revenues
that have been previously classified as Deposits.
The $20.15M starts with the $18.4M from above and then adds other Citywide revenue that is accounted for in
other funds (Traffic Safety, Road Impact Fees, Grants and Ambulance) of $1 .75M that fund other programs
(NOT General Fund) either on their own or in Capital Proj ects.
The $3.8M in Other Sources is more of a "contra" expenditure account that is required to balance the equation
and represents the amount of General Fund "equity" that is transferred out of the General Fund to pay for "non-
General Fund" expenditures (CIP and Debt Service) .

RequesUQuestion: What is the source for the "anticipated economic downturn in 2017"? I read the WSJ daily,
the Sunday NYT and have checked with Merrill Lynch and none supports this view. That's not to say something
like it won't happen but it is nothing that has been or is being bruited about now. Assuming there is a downturn,
what is being done to squirrel away funds that will see the City through such times?
Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
Please see the following articles available online:
New York Times (April27, 2014) "Recovery Has Created Far More Low-Wage Jobs than Better Paid Ones"

CNBC (Feb 26, 2014) "Mortgage Applications at Lowest Level in 2 Decades"
USA Today (Mar 5, 2014) "RadioShack to Close Up to 1,100 Stores"
Yes, it is being bruited about, and not just in the mainstream media ...
ZeroHedge (Mar 5, 2014) "ISM Services Collapses to Lowest in 4 Years, Employment Worst Since Lehman"
ZeroHedge (Feb 20, 2014) "Caterpillar Global Retail Sales Declines for 14th Consecutive Month"
ZeroHedge (May 29, 2014) "Excluding ObamaCare, US Economy Contracted by 2% in the First Quarter"
National Review Online (May 29, 2014) "Oh, Hey, the Economy is Contracting Again"
Breitbart (Dec 8, 2013) "Father of Modern Finance Warns U.S., Europe: 'None of Their Debt is Credible', Recess1on in 2014"
None of this predicts a recession in 2017, nor do we believe that a recession can be predicted reliably in our country's current economic
state and with its current poli cies (QE3 pumpi ng $45 Billion per month mto economy, down from $858 a few months ago, stock market rising
to record levels even as economy is sluggish at best, contracting at worst, interest rates at historic lows but poised to increase based on QE3
pump, etc.). The point is more that recessions are cyclical, they will occur, and the best we can do Is understand that we need to have an
action plan when the next one occurs.
The purpose of a multi-year budget is to present a plan to establish strategies and contingency plans with which we might have to deal over
the scope of 3 years. In suggesting a recession in 2017, we have presented a significant event that would produce an economic downturn
far enough into the future so as to not take away from the more serious tasks that the City should focus on in the near term (deferred
maintenance upgrading infrastructure, securing appropriate staffing levels, enhancing services to citizens, increasing transparency and trust
in government, etc.)
Assuming there is a downturn in the future, the City's first line of defense is already bei ng undertaken: addressing the deferred maintenance
1ssue. By addressing it now, we avoid having to address it when the downturn occurs, thus saving money. By addressing the most 1mportant
and largest deferred maintenance first. we are currently mitigating our risk of havi ng to fund large CapEx projects later (say, during a
downturn), when we will need the reduced revenue flows just to support basic services.
The City's second line of defense against a downturn is also currently being undertaken: marketing the City's unique character to attract
visitors from all over the world (as well as next door) to enjoy our wide range of activities, events, and places to visit. This strategy is already
benefiting the local business and the City financially.
The City's third line of defense addressing a downturn is to slow the amount of annual CapEx. Of the -$20M i n expenditures in F'!'S4-15,
-$3.5M, or 17.5%, is for CapEx. By slowing spending on capital projects, the City can. at least partially, offset the effects of lower revenues.

Request/Question: Would be helpful to have a brief description of the Bradley-Burns Tax in the Glossary, which
should probably be moved to the front, back or appendix rather than breaking up the budget narrative with its
present location.
Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
The Bradley-Burns Uniform Sales and Use Tax Law provides for a city/county rate of 1.25%. One-quarter cent of the levy is
sent to the countywide regional transportation fund The balance goes to support local government general funds
Effective July 1, 2004, 0.25 of the one percent local sales and use tax was diverted to guarantee state deficit bonds approved
by Proposition 57. The withheld funds are backfilled from county property taxes each January and May in accordance wi th
the state's "triple flip" borrowing plan.
Proposition 30, which was passed by voters in the November 2012 general election, increases the statewide sales tax rate by
one-quarter cent. The increase is effective for four years from January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2016. Revenues from
the tax will go to K-12 schools and community colleges. It will also fund public safety services that were transferred from the
state to local government.

Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
The MPRWA (Monterey Peninsula Regional Water Authority) charges its members an annual fee to pay for its
management and organizational expenditures. Our fee for FY14-15 is expected to be a one-time payment of
$38,900.
Since it is a one-time fee per year, we have elected to track it in the Council Discretionary account (01-60207).

Request/Question: What are funds for MEarth ( is this Carmel Middle School)? for City Sponsored events (are
these Mem. Day, Vet's Day, July 4, the City Birthday et al)? If so. this $3,500 seems a pretty low figure. What is
the $1,000 to CHS separate from Sober Grad Night?
Person Preparing the Response: Janet Bombard, Library and Community Activities Director
Response: Funding is granted to MEarth to restore native plants and remove invasive plant spec1es in specified
City locations. MEarth at the Hilton Bialek Habitat is a nonprofit organization that provides environmental
learning opportunities, including native plant propagation and habitat restoration, to K-12 students in the Carmel
Unified School District and commun1ty youth from underserved areas m Monterey County. MEarth is not part of
the Carmel Unified School District.
Funding for City's traditional events, including Memorial Day, Veteran's Day, Fourth of July, Sandcastle Contest,
the City's Birthday, Homecrafters' Marketplace, and the Tree Lighting Ceremony, comes from the Community
Activities Department budget. The $3,500 allocated to Sponsored City Events is used to offset unanticipated
costs for City meetings and functions. an example being the hosting of the Public Utilities Commission public
hearings at Sunset Center in December.
During the budget cycle various organizations submit letters of request for funding. In previous years Carmel
High School has submitted requests apart from funding for Sober Grad Night. The line item was left in the
proposed budget in anticipation of a request; however, no fiscal year 2014/15 request was submitted.

Request/Question: What is the breakdown of function for the 6 positions and 5 FTEs in Planning and Buildmg
for what appears to be a total of 11.75 people. I would hope that Code Compliance can be carried out by a City of
Carmel employee and not Monterey as this is part of communication and how you deal gracefully on a sticky
issue with residents and business owners.
Person Preparing the Response: Rob Mullane
Response:
There are 6.0 FTE positions allocated for the Community Planning and Building Department. In this year's
budget, 5.0 FTE positions are funded, and 1.0 FTE position is unfunded. This is reflected in the table on Page
D-16. The table also notes the breakdown of positions by division. The allocated positions include:
Community Planning and Building Director: 1.0 FTE
Senior Planner: 1.0 FTE
Assistant/Associate Planner: 1.0 POS
Administrative Assistant: 1 0 FTE
Permit Technician: 1.0 FTE
Building Official: 1.0 FTE
Of these, the Assistant/Associate Planner pos1tion is unfunded for FY 2014-2015. The table also notes that the
code compliance function is proposed to be funded at a 0.75 FTE equivalent. This work is currently performed
by contract staff, not the City of Monterey.

RequestJQuestion: While the Ambulance Fund projects a deficit of over a hal f million dollars, there is no
explanation for this and how it can be eliminated.
Person Preparing the Response: Michael Calhoun, Director of Public Safety
Response:
The fi re ambulance service generates revenue from call income fees that offsets operational expenditures.
Revenue write-downs, through non-payment, insurance payment limits, and medicare/medical capped
reimbursements reduce the revenue received from the amount billed. Net revenue to fund the serv1ce has
increased and estimated to be $727,500 for FY14/15.
The fire ambulance provides advanced life support transport services in Carmel and surrounding peninsula cities
and county area and is part of the fire service emergency response for the Ctty of Carmel. In 2013 there were
1187 total calls for service (850 medical calls and 654 transports). Call volume has for the most part remained
the same compared to 2012 but transports have increased by 11 . 7%.
The Carmel fire ambulance service augments the City's public safety function by providi ng an increased level of
fire and paramedic service to the community. This increased level of service requires a general fund subsidy
and the city has been subsidizing the ambulance since inception June 1st 1990 as part of the CRFA Joint
Powers Agreement. The subsidy for FY 14/15 is estimated to be $425,761 which is consistent with subsidized
amounts from previous years. Staff continues to work with Whitman billing company to collect all service
revenue minus the write downs and bad debt.

Request/Question: For community activities why do salaries more than double to $89K and part-time assistance
appears at $57K (is this Tavener) for an aggregate CA increase of $156K over the current year.
Person Preparing the Response: Janet Bombard, Community Activities Director
Response: The proposed FY 14/1 5 salaries line item includes one full-time Community Activities position, one
part-time Community Activities position (currently unfilled) , and a part-time art class instructor.
In previous fiscal years, the full-time Community Activities position was shared between three departments. The
salary was split accordingly between the three departmental salaries line items and allocated as follows: 50% to
Community Activities, 25% to the Police Department. and 25% to the Public Services department. Due to the
increase in departmental activity the full-t1me Community Activities position will be fully allocated to the
Community Activities department next fiscal year.
Additionally, departmental salaries were reflected differently in the FY 13/14 budget. Full-time salaries were
allotted to the Salaries line item (8201 0), part-time salaries to the Part-time Assistance line item (82023). The
proposed upcoming fiscal year budget allots all departmental salaries, regardless of whether full-time or part-
time, to the Salaries line item.
The $55,000 in the proposed FY 14/15 Part-time Assistance line item refl ects the amount of the current City
Contract for Professional Consulting Services authorized by the City Council on March 18, 2014.

The Del Mar Master Plan includes a policy (P4-11) to "improve pedestrian circulation between the north end of
the Beach Bluff Pathway at Eight Avenue and the beach facilities at Ocean Avenue and the Del Mar parking lot
as part of the Del mar and North Dunes Master Plan." The capital improvement project listed on E-17 is a
placeholder project for the Pathway. Any forthcoming Pathway woul d need to be conceptually designed and
receive input from t11e Forest and Beach and Planning Commissions before implementation. The $60,000 grant

Request/Question:We have an approved design done by Michelle Comeau, if you don't have it I am sure we can
obtain another copy. This design was not only approved but it was on this approved basis that $100,000 was
raised for the 5 blocks. See the stones with brass plaques. Trees have been planted which are not according to
the plan which was to open up the divider and to herald coming attractions on the metal poles- as repeatedly
reported, these plantings have obliterated at least two poles which desecrates the American flag when those are
hung.
As for the lighting design, that was done by Aurum Consulting Engineers Monterey Bay. The design included
fixtures, lighting controls, and specifications. As part of the approval a lighting demo was installed in the medians
with up-lights on selected tree trunks and others on low-lying plants. These latter lights had to be redone after
installati on as they became too entwined in the ground cover plants So a short time ago this was done (I don't
have those details, but will forward them if I can find them). Subsequently staff bought and added what are
referred to as "twinkle lights" that are wrapped around some trunks and have to be loosened every so often as
the trees grow. In sum, there are 3 different sets of lights.
Person Preparing the Response:Sharon Friedrichsen, Public Services Director
Response:
On April 1, 2014, City Council received a status report on the City's Lighting Policy. Council discussed lighting
options, the studying of lighting by the Planning Commission and directed that a capital project be included within
the proposed operating budget.

RequesUQuestion: an outreach effort is only half the issue. Something needs to be done ASAP to accelerate
the issuance of business licenses, to accelerate the process of getting businesses up and running and the same
for events as there is talk about losing some part of one of our off-season mid-week events which puts heads on
beds during that down period. Carmel is not known as business friendly-when it takes 6 months or more of
paying rent with no income to obtain all permits or have applications returned because they were not on 11 x 17
paper it is hard to counter .         ___________ ___________ --t
Person Preparing the Response: Rob Mullane
Response:
The review of new business license requests currently involves staff work from both the Community Planning
and Building Department and Admi nistrative Services. For all new businesses a review of the proposed
business's compliance with the City's Municipal Code is necessary. The City's Municipal Code requires a small
portion of these to obtain a Use Permit, which requires Planning Commission review, as do Sign applications that
go beyond the allowances for staff-level approval for a single business sign. The timing for a project to get
through the Planning Commission depends on many factors, including staffing resources and workload, but
equally important is the quality, thoroughness, and responsiveness of application submittal materials and
resubmittals. Staff is revising the Planning Division application forms and submittal checklists to clearly
communicate our application submittal requirements, and this should reduce the number of rounds of review for
an application before it is deemed complete.

Request/Question: It would be useful to explain in Glossary, footnote or text what the side fund is and does.
Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
(from ''The Carmel Ca/PERS Pension Committee Report", September 27, 2011)
In 2003, when Carmel 's pension plans were pooled with other small cities and agencies, CaiPERS reviewed the
contributed assets and estimated liabilities of Carmel 's pension plans. It determined that at the time the liability
values for the two plans exceeded the asset values by roughly $6 million.
At the time, other small cities also had assets that were not equal to their liabilities. CaiPERS dealt with this by
creating what it calls Side Funds, representing the differences between assets and liabilities. At inception in
2003, Carmel's Side Fund balances were equal to approximately -$ 6 million. Thus Carmel had "Side Fund
Debts" (this Committee's term) of approximately$ 6 million.
The Side Fund Debts were treated as loans from CaiPERS to Carmel for unfunded liabilities at the inception in
2003. These loans bore an interest rate of 7.75% (the return that CaiPERS expects to earn in the long run on its
portfolio). CaiPERS established a payment schedule for the Side Fund Debts such that payments in the past
several years have not exceeded the accruing interest. As of June 30, 2011 Side Fund Debts for the two
funds totaled $6.2 million.
(Addendum, May 28, 2014, City staff)
At the recommendation of the Carmel CaiPERS Pension Committee, in December, 2012, the City issued $6.28
million worth of bonds to pay off its Side Fund at interest rates between .55% and 3.1 %, due over the next 20
years, thus significantly reducing its interest rate risk associated with this debt.

RequestlQuesti on: A footnote explaining "smoothing policy"                                     ____________
Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
(From the Ca/PERS Circular Letter of April 26, 2013 re: "EMPLOYER RATE INCREASES DUE TO
AMORTIZATION AND SMOOTHING POLICY CHANGES")
Analysis:
The current amortization and smoothing policy was designed to reduce volatility in employer contnbution rates.
The policy has accomplished this goal fairly well since its adoption, however a number of concerns have
developed:
• The use of an actuarial value of assets corridor can lead to significant single year increases to rates in
years when there are large investment losses.
• The use of long asset smoothing periods and long roll ing amortization periods result in slow progress
toward full funding.
• The use of an actuarial value of assets requires the disclosure of two different funded statuses and
unfunded liability numbers in actuarial valuation reports. This adds confusion and inhibits transparency.
• The use of rolling amortization and long asset smoothing periods makes it difficult for employers to
predict when contribution rates will peak and how high that peak will be.
• The use of rolling amortization and asset smoothing periods may result in additional calculations for the
new accounting standards. These calculations would be avoided with a quicker funded status recovery.
The adoption of the new smoothing and amort1zat1on policies will change future employer contribution rates.
Changes are as follows:
• Funding levels will improve, which will reduce the funding level risk. The new methods will put your plan
on a path to be fully funded in 30 years
• Your plan will experience more rate volatility in normal years, but a much reduced chance of very large
rate increases in years when there are large investment losses.
• Contribution rates in the near term will increase.
• Long term contribution rates will be lower.
• There will be greater transparency about the timing and impact of future employer contribution rate
changes.
· The new policy eliminates the need for an actuarial value of assets. As a result, there will be only one
funded status and unfunded liability in actuarial reports.
• There will be less confusion when the new accounting standards are implemented since there will be
no need for extra liability calculations.

RequesUQuestion: : Not clear why certain items are funded out of the General Fund and others out of Measure
D (or a combination of both). What are the reasons for fundmq through Measure D ~ ?                       1
Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
Although the Measure D use tax was passed as a general tax that could be used for any and all City debts, the
Council has, as a policy, has decided to use it (as stated in the Ballot Measure) " ... to maintain essential services
including fire, ambulance and police response times; fund capital needs including streets, beach, parks, forest
and trails; increase code compliance; maintain libraries, Sunset Center and other public facil ities; address
CaiPERS pension liabilities and other debt; and provide other general City services."
The first allocation of these funds are to pay for the debt service on the bonds that paid off the CaiPERS Side
Fund, the next allocation is for capital expenditures outlined above, and lastly, we allocate a smaller portion to
Direct Services.

Request/Question: : Is tree mapping something that a well-organized. trained group of volunteers could handle?
Person Preparing the Response: Sharon Friedrichsen, Public Services Director
Response:
It is proposed that the City would utilize a software management program offered by a tree maintenance and tree
management firm to develop the digital tree database. This would allow the City to benefit from the assistance of
a firm famil iar in the development of tree inventories and tree management plans.
There may be an opportunity for volunteers to assist with gathering the information in the field. Under this
scenario, the volunteers would need to be equipped with technology to capture the location and other qualities of
the tree on site. This informatton would then need to be uploaded mto a database that would keep an inventory
of the trees and maintain preventative work being performed on trees and trees added/removed from the
inventory. The specific details of what type of technology the volunteers would use and how it would interface
with the tree database has not been explored at this time.

Response: The Park Branch Library basement constitutes over 1, 000 square feet of unusable space due to
leaks and flooding causing hazardous mold growth. In regards to flooding, the French Drain system for the
basement has been supplemented with a new secondary emergency drain pump system which backs-up the
original primary emergency drain pump system. Staff believes flooding will not occur again, although minor leaks
still exist and it has been determined that the basement will not be water-tight. At this time staff believes the best
scope of work in order to mitigate the leaks and therefore occupy the basement is to: 1. Remove all any
potential sources of mold if wetted, i.e. gut the basement of all wood frammg, gypsum board, etc. down to bare
concrete walls and floor etc. 2. Apply material(s) to the interi or walls and floors (concrete sealer, hydraulic
coating -two part epoxy pai nt and/or hydraulic cement, install water intrusion alarms. 3. Change storage
methods so that all library storage is on metal rack-shelving with the bottom shelf several inches of the floor. 4.
Install floor drains. 5. Install a water intrusion alarm system. 6. Install a humidity control mechanical system.

I Person Preparing the Response: Sharon Friedrichsen, Public Services Director
Response:
The City received a grant from the State Coastal Conservancy for the viewing platform, interpretive signage and
sidewalk improvements. The remaining grant fund balance must be used for the Sidewalk portion of the project
in order to finish the entire project and close out the grant. The Planning Commission has recommended that
additional existing areas of asphalt be replaced with pavers as well. However, this would increase the cost of the
project and require additional funding of approximately $60,000. Funding the project is at the discretion of
Council. Council may either allocate the additional funding for the increased project scope or authorize staff to
commence with replacing only the segment that is funded by the grant.

RequesUQuestion: Council and staff reviewed several master plans during this past fiscal year to determine
whether the city is actually addressing all the Policies, Goals and Objectives. These "Scorecard" evaluations did
not identify any of the performance measures or standards of performance against which they were judged.
Q: How are we to know whether you met the master plans intent with any of your management activities without
any standards or performance measurements?
Person Preparing the Response: Sharon Friedrichsen, Director of Public Services
Response:
Council requested staff to facilitate the review of the policies, goals and objectives of the various plans by the
Forest and Beach and Planning Commissions to determine if any policies should be revised. The scorecards
were developed as a tool to summarize the policies, goals and objectives in one document and to track progress
on implementation. The various plans do not currently contai n performance measure standards. Even the
Shoreline Implementation Plan, which contains an extensive inspection/maintenance list, does not include
performance measures. Creating performance measures for these documents would require additional
resources due to the scope and complexity. The proposed scope of the project is complex due to the number of
policies, goals and objectives and would require an extensive effort to have the Forest and Beach and Planning
Commission and Council reach consensus on how to measure and create standards for the interpretation of
policies. If measures were developed, they may be subject to change depending on different interpretation of the
policy and the performance standards at the moment.

Develop a comprehensive list of parking solutions and implement solutions
in accordance with Parking Management Plan priorities and goals.
• A parking management plan was developed based on input f rom the public and
presented at the Aprill City council meet ing. The plan includes recommended policies
and t echnology that are responsive to the needs of the public and parking options that
provide value and service to our visitors, employees, business owners, and residents. At
the May City Council meeting Council established a time line to implement the followi ng
recommendations, and continuing public outreach efforts.
1) Extend time enforcement one hour from 6:00 PM to 7:00PM
2} Provide more convenient and attractive parking opt ions for employees by offering f ree
parking at the north lot of the Sunset Center and eliminating time limits in designated
areas along Junipero Street.
3) Provide improved safety and convenience for walki ng and traveling to and from
parking locations outside the commercial core.
4) Develop a rewar ds program for employees and the feasibility of Implementing an
employee shuttle service.
5) Implement a pilot program along Ocean Ave for paid parking.

Maintain a leadership role in developing a long-term solution to the region's
water supply and develop additional local water conservation and water
supply alternatives.
• Supply
o Mayor Burnett serves as Vice President of the Monterey Peninsula Regional
Water Authority (MPRWA) and is Chair of its Technical Advisory Committee.
The goal of the MPRWA is to f ind a solution to the Peninsula Water Shortage
due to the over-draf ting of the Carmel River.
o Carmel-by-the-Sea is analyzing other local source water supply alt ernatives
and quantifying potential local need. The City provided t estimony at a St ate
hearing to consider licensing of the Odella Ranch water rights. Carmel asked
the State Water Resources Control Board to approve the petition and issue a
determination t hat the wat er delivered for municipal purposes is consistent
with the cease and desist order issued upon the California American Water
Company. A decision is pending.
• Conservation: The annual water conservation pl an is scheduled to be presented t o
the Cit y Council in September 2014. It will include the status of several water
conservat ion and non-potable water supply alternatives. The City staff and
Planning Commission continue t o review and approve water storage cisterns. Ci t y
facilities were recently ret rofitt ed with water conservat ion fixtures
Implement the Shoreline Management and Forest Management Plans focusing
on beach fires and the key priorities and including the Del Mar Master Plan and
Mission Trail Nature Preserve Master Plan.
• Shoreline and Forest Master Plans: During this Spring staff began beach fire patrols to

Request/Question: We cannot reconcile The "Budget at a Glance" table with any of the other tables in the report.
Q: Please explain.
I Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
(Same response given to Inquiry Number 2)
The $17.8M figure you refer to is the total General Fund revenue for FY14-15. It does not include "transfers-in"
from other, "non-General Fund" funds. This does not take into consideration revenues that are recognized in
funds other than the General Fund.
The $18.4M includes the $17.8M plus transfers to the General Fund and one time reclassification of revenues
that have been previously classified as Deposits.
The $20.15M starts with the $18.4M from above and then adds other Citywide revenue that is accounted for in
other funds (Traffic Safety, Road Impact Fees, Grants and Ambulance) of $1 .75M that fund other programs
(NOT General Fund) either on their own or in Capital Projects.
The $3.8M in Other Sources is more of a "contra" expenditure account that is required to balance the equation
and represents the amount of General Fund "equity" that is transferred out of the General Fund to pay for "non-
General Fund" expenditures (CIP and Debt Service).

Request/Question: What will paid parking on Ocean Ave. look li ke and how will it be managed?
Person Preparing the Response: Michael Calhoun- Director of Public Safety
Response:
Walker Parking Consultants recommended multi-space pay by plate meters which allows patrons to pay for
parking using their license plate information to park for a select amount of time. This type a system allows a
patron to add parking time to the meter from any other meter or by their cell phone for added convenience.
Enforcement is done with a vehicle mounted (mobile) License Plate Recognition (LPR) system that scans the
license plates of all parked cars. The pay by cell system can send a text message to the cell phone to advise of
time expiration and can offer an option to add time if parked within the city limits without having to return to your
car or a meter. This system also includes the option of residential parking permits or other preferential parking
permits. The pay by cell program has management software capabilities to manage day to day operations and
ability to define best practices for Carmel.

RequesUQuestion: If health care insurance has been rising at 2% per year, why will our efforts "to implement
cost avoidance and management strategies" result in a 10% growth?
I Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
The potential confusion here is the 2% average rise (over the past 8 years) tracks the average increase in total
City paid health care expenses over the last 8 years. The average of 2% is the net effect of the changes in
premiums paid (almost always nsing by double digits), and factors such as number of full-time employees and
MOU terms that may change the City's portion of premiums charged. As these numbers change, and over the
last 8 years there were negative growth years (because of reduced workforce and/or MOU changes), they have
averaged 2% growth per year.
The 10% growth is the growth that we are expecting to realize from this year (FY13-14) to next (FY14-15) in
premiums expenditures, net of the effect of our mitigation strategies, workforce increases and MOU changes.
Our health and benefits costs are increasing, and if the City's workforce continues to expand, and health costs
continue to increase, obviously the rolling 2% average increase will get larger.

RequesUQuestion: The graphs show an increase in Sales Tax of almost 3million per year.
Q: Wasn't Measure D expected to increase tax revenue by about 1 million?
I Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
Measure D sales/use tax is the same amount as our regular, Bradley-Burns sales tax revenue, with one relatively
minor increase. Any automobiles purchased by residents of Carmel will have the sales/use tax paid to the City,
no matter where in California it is purchased.
So, in effect, the Measure D sales/use tax will be actually greater than our share of Bradley-Burns sales tax
revenue. In FY10-11, our Bradley-Burns revenues were $1,805,510, in FY11-12, they were $1,743,748, in
FY12-13 they were $2,211,453. As you can see, even if we returned to FY1 0-11 levels, the Measure 0
revenues should be in excess of $1 ,800,000.
The budgeted Sales Tax Revenue line item for FY14-15 is a combined Bradley-Burns and Measure 0 amount of
$4,783,253, which if split in half to compare to prior years, is $2,391,626. This is an 8.2% increase (over 2
years) from FY12-13.

RequesUQuestion: . There is $100,687 set aside and designated for Forest Theater improvements. In terms of
priorities, there are other city assets that seem just as deserving, if not more so.
Q: If money can be set aside for Forest Theater, why haven't money be designated and set aside similar
amounts or more for the Carmel Shoreline and Mission Trail Nature Preserve?
I Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
The Forest Theater has been set up as an Enterprise Fund, and as such, any "fund balance" that accrues to it
(revenues over expenses), stays with it, and can only be used by the Enterprise Fund.
This was set up by the City Council for this specific purpose. The Council specifically allocates revenues
generated by the Forest Theater only to Forest Theater. Any excess of revenues over expenses for the year
remains in the Forest Theater Enterprise Fund and accrues specifically for things like capital improvements.
In order to set up the two aforementioned projects as enterprise funds, there would have to be (1) a revenue
source, like user fees, and (2) the will of the Council to set them up as Enterprise Funds.

Request/Question: You seem to focus on the Five Year Capital Plan projects list as a response to most of the
city's management and master plans, but there seems to be very little, if any information about staffing or M&O
funding to address the on-going service improvements to respond to the policy, goals and objectives of those
plans and programs.
Q: Please identify how you have addressed those issues in the various departmental budgets.
j Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
In general, there have been major efforts to update and upgrade infrastructure as the initial steps in addressing
the master plans. Without these upgrades, no amount of subsequent investment is appropriate. The focus on
the Five Year Capital Plan is a direct, conscious effort to establish the base upon which all other City-wide
improvements will be anchored.
As you will notice in the Five Year Capital Plan, almost all expenditures are related to needs that do not require a
large amount of additional staffing or M&O. They are merely expenditures that replace existing aging
infrastructure or equipment, rectifying deferred maintenance.
A smaller portion of the Five Year Capital Plan addresses things like the IT Strategic Plan. Even though the plan
is, in part, addressing deferred maintenance, it also is a stepping stone to help us be more efficient and effective
at the staff level. At this level, we need to supplement M&O and, potentially, staffing. We will accomplish thiS
mostly by training existing staff. A better trained and engaged workforce will enhance the service aspect of any
public-facing employee. Additionally, there has been a concerted effort to analyze and align personnel better
with existing job requirements and in some instances, changing the jobs to better serve the community.

Request/Question: Explain why if Prop. 42 passes in June, how that will impact the budget and by what
amounts?
I Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
California Proposition 42, the California Compliance of Local Agencies with Public Act (Senate
Constitutional Amendment 3), is on the June 3, 2014 ballot in California as a legislatively-referred constitutional
amendment.
If the measure is approved by the state's voters, it will require all local agencies to comply with the California
Public Records Act (CPRA) and the Ralph M. Brown Act (Brown Act) and with any subsequent changes to the
acts, thus guaranteeing a person's right to inspect public records and attend public meetings. Prop 42 will also
make these laws core government responsibilities, ensuring taxpayers are not paying for items local
governments have a duty to provide on their own.
The City of Carmel already complies with the CPRA and the Brown Act, so there would be no effect on the
budget for this part of the legislation.
The initiative would result in a fiscal savmgs for the state government, but would likely result in comparable
revenue reductions to local governments. It would mean that the City would no longer receive reimbursements
from the State for complying with the state mandate of the CA Public Records Act.
As far as predicting the budget impact, it would depend on the number of PRA requests that are received.

RequesUQuestion: . Performance Measures: There are no performance measures for the beach, parks and
greenbelts.
Q: How do you measure the quality of performance if none of these have measurements?
Person Preparing the Response: Sharon Friedrichsen, Public Services Director
Response:
There is a performance measure on the average cleanliness of the beaches and parks as well as several
measures related to trees. Each year, Council includes an agenda item on performance measures and
encourages the public to provide input into departmental performance measures. These measures are also
included as part of the quarterly performance report reviewed by Council and the public is again encouraged to
provide input. The public may also contact the department directly on suggested performance measures, which,
in this context, can be reviewed by the Forest and Beach Commission and included as additional performance
measures.

Request/Question: The management plans color-coded "Scorecard" had no accurate standards or performance
measurement criteria to compare your performance.
Q: How can we know if the goals of the plans are properly being accomplished?
I Person Preparing the Response: Sharon Friedrichsen, Public Services Director
Response:
Council requested staff to faci litate the review of the policies, goals and objectives of the various plans by the
Forest and Beach and Planning Commissions to determine if any polic1es should be revised. The scorecards
were developed as a tool to summarize the polic1es, goals and objectives in one document and to track progress
on implementation. The various plans were drafted several years ago and do not contain performance measure
standards. Implementation of the plans to date has been done without performance measures or standards.
Creating performance measures for these documents would require additional resources due to the scope and
complexity. The proposed scope of the project is complex due to the number of policies, goals and objectives
and would require an extensive effort to have the Forest and Beach and Plann1ng Commission and Council
reach consensus on how to measure and create standards for the interpretation of policies. If measures were
developed, they may be subject to change depending on different interpretation of the policy and the
performance standards at the moment.

Request/Question: Since this is the 3rd unprecedented dry year why hasn't the Fire Department been
aggressively proactive requiring all private property owners adjacent to our parklands ordered to clear all fire fuel
vegetation on their property?
Person Preparing the Response: Gaudenz Panholzer, Fire Chief
Response:
The Fire Department went to the properties in question during the month of February to meet and
discuss with the residents the need to conduct fuel clearing. Information was left for the resident if no
one was home at the time. We will continue to monitor these areas and reach out to
homeowners/residents as needed to ensure that proper clearance is maintained. Residents can assist by
calling in with specific concerns (831-646-3900).

RequesUQuestion: [Police] Why the additional traffic control Staff?
I Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
Public Safety is requesting to add one (1) Community Services Officer (CSO) to augment current staffing for
parking enforcement responsibilities. Currently, one CSO officer splits her assignments between parking and
animal control. Hiring the additional CSO officer will allow more focus on animal control investigations and public
education while the other two CSO officers focus on parking enforcement responsibilities and improve overall
service both in parking and animal services.

RequesUQuestion: Why the increase from $84K to $172K in Salaries/Benefits for community activities?
l Person Preparing the Response: Janet Bombard, Library and Community Activities Director
Response: The proposed FY 14/15 salaries line item includes one full-time Community Activities position, one
part-time Community Activities position (currently unfilled) , and a part-time art class instructor.
In previous fiscal years, the full-time Community Activities position was shared between three departments. The
salary was split accordingly between the three departmental salaries line items and allocated as follows: 50% to
Community Activities, 25% to the Police Department. and 25% to the Public Services department. Due to the
increase in departmental activity the full-time Commumty Activities position will be fully allocated to the
Community Activities department next fiscal year.
Additionally, departmental salaries were reflected differently in the FY 13/14 budget. Full-t1me salaries were
allotted to the Salaries line item (8201 0), part-time salaries to the Part-time Assistance line item (82023). The
proposed upcoming fiscal year budget allots all departmental salaries, regardless of whether full-time or part-
time, to the Salaries line item.
The $55,000 in the proposed FY 14/15 Part-time Assistance line item reflects the amount of the current City
Contract for Professional Consulting Services authorized by the City Council on March 18, 2014

Request/Question: What is the Del Mar Sidewalk funding vs. the Del Mar Path funding? Are both fully vetted
and approved?
Person Preparing the Response: Sharon Friedrichsen, Public Services Director
Response:
The Del Mar Master Plan includes a policy (P4-11) to "improve pedestrian circulation between the north end of
the Beach Bluff Pathway at Eight Avenue and the beach facilities at Ocean Avenue and the Del Mar parking lot
as part of the Del mar and North Dunes Master Plan." The capital improvement project listed on E-17 is a
placeholder project for the Pathway. Any forthcoming Pathway would need to be conceptually designed and
receive input from the Forest and Beach and Planning Commissions before implementation. The capital project
on E-32 is to replace existing asphalt with pavers per the Del Mar Master Plan This project has been approved
by the Planning Commission. The Planning Commission has recommended that the segment of walkway being
replaced with pavers be expended. Hence, the budget for the project, if expanded, is $120,000. The Coastal
Conservancy grant for this project is about $60,000.

Request/Question: . IT Strategic Plan. In FY2014-15, Phase One of the IT Plan is budgeted to be completed. It
is broken into four key projects (Financial System Upgrade, Human Resources-payroll, website update, and
legislative suite}; other smaller projects; infrastructure, police department, permit tracking, and tree database) are
also to be implemented. It is not clear whether these composites will be fully operational at the end of the
FY2014-15. If so, the cost estimate for the first year of $307K seems somewhat low. The out-year costs of
$6.5K/year (presumably software) also seem low. It is also not clear what portion of the cost will be contracted
out.
Q: Please explain.
I Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
Phase One of the IT Strategic Plan is budgeted to be completed by the end of FY14-15.
The cost estimate is based on preliminary research completed over the past year. This 1s just an estimate, as no
RFP or RFQ has been circulated. An RFP/RFQ will be circulated very soon, and the exact costs will be known
when the bids are reviewed.

Request/Question: There are substantial reserve funds set aside that could be used to ramp way up on
deferred maintenance and addressing at least (one-time) project expenditures.
Q: Wouldn't it be appropriate to address these and expand existing efforts?
I Person Preparing the Response:
Response:
We have a long list of projects that need to be addressed, and we do have reserves currently that could pay for a
portion, or many of these projects.
Unfortunately, there are constraints. Constraints in the form of resources (people, expertise, materials, time,
etc.) that keep these projects from being accomplished all at once, even though we may have the reserves to
pay for them.
There are also constraints related to reserve structure policy that dictate how much should be in reserves to
mitigate risks related to certain events (e.g., natural disaster, shortfall of revenues, overrun of expenses, etc.).

Accomplishments


Last year the City of Carmel entered into an automatic and mutual aid agreement with American
Medical Response to provide an integration of ambulance services within each agency's respective
designated response districts.
Carmel Fire Ambulance was also equipped with an automatic vehicle locator (AVL) which will
improve the level of service to each respective jurisdiction by identifying the closest most
appropriate ambulance unit.
• The Police Department reviewed and made changes to the organization structured by removing the
Field Training Officer position and adding an additional Corporal position

Re: City Budget 2014-15
Dear Jason:
On behalf of the SCC Board ofTrustees, I am submitting this query regarding t he allocation of
support funds for t he Sunset Center in the proposed 2014-15 City Operating Plan. The adopted
sec 2014-15 Operating Budget of $2.5 million was balanced in large part around a City subsidy
figure of $700,000, which you spoke to during our February 11 Board meeting. SCC was
encouraged and hopeful t hat the level of City funding would remain at a similar percentage of
our operating budget that it was last year (approximately 30%).
Further, while we appreciate that the capital items that SCC has brought to your attention have
been included in t he City's 5-year Capital Plan, some of those items are listed as unfunded, or
donor funded. You have indicated that you would like to see private fund raising by SCC to help
cover t he cost of certain proposed rtems, such as the outdoor terrace stage. While the proposed
cost of stage replacement is not significant, the SCC Board is reluctant to begin raising funds for
capi tal items that are contractually the responsibility of the City. The Board would prefer to raise
funds for a future operating endowment campaign, for example.
We appreciate your feedback and comments on this query.
Sincerely,
 
Christine Sandin, Executive Director

Re: Mission Trail Improvement and Restoration Project Grant Program
Dear Ms. Lewis:
On behalf of the Friends of Mission Trail Nature Preserve, an official non-profit
volunteer support group of the City of Carmel-by- the Sea, I wish to express our
deep appreciation for your staff and MEarth student's exceptional efforts
undertaking several restoration projects within the preserve. Over the past eighteen
months the students have completed restorative projects reparring erosion damage
to several major trail sections within the heart of the preserve. They also cleaned
and repaired trails throughout the Rowntree Native Plant Garden. Included in that
effort, the students also repaired and improved several significant sections of trait
removing obstructions, leveling surfaces and building drainage diversion swales.
In addition to trails restoration activities, the MEarth students and students from
Carmel High School have removed substantial areas of invasive species including
genista, ivy, vinca major, ice plant and numerous species of acada. This ongoing
effort has been a priority focus of the Friends and your assistance in this campaign
has been extraordinary.
As these projects progressed, we particularly appreciated the educational
component. Students had the opportunity of learning about the unique qualities of
the preserve, its biodiversity and its importance as a primary wetland watershed
with an upland pine oak forest habitat supporting numerous wildlife species and a
place of respite for many overwintering migratory bird species.
We look forward to continuing our mutual interests in developing future restoration
projects that can benefit the City of Carmel, MEarth and in particular the Friends of
Mission Trail Nature Preserve.
Bestregards._

.•.     Carmel-by-the-Sea Progress Report (March 25, 2014)
North Dunes Restoration
Throughout the month of September 2013, native scrub and native dune seeds were
harvested by volunteers and the Carmel High School Life Science Class. The seeds that
were collected were propagated in early October and throughout the following three
months; the seedlings were watered, thinned and transplanted by the individuals that
collected them. The germination success rate was outstanding and the 1,000 seedlings
have since been hardened off and are ready for out planting.
In addition to producing plants for this site, our invasive species goal was to stay on top
of previously managed sites. Several days were spent with volunteers, students and
classes removing the invasive conicosia and ice plant fi"om areas where invasive were
previously removed. Once these sites were cleared, twelve students from the High
School Advanced Placement Environmental Science class removed the large patch of ice
plant located in front of the Ocean A venue restrooms.
Next Steps: Amanda Francis attended a meeting with Mike Branson and Sharon
Friedrichsen on 12/17/13 and it was determined pursuant to California Coastal
Commission direction that all activities at the North Dunes and Beach Bluff sites are to
be on hold until permission is granted to move forward. We are currently waiting for
approval to continue with this project. Mike and Sharon recommended Amanda meet
with Greg D'Ambrosio to develop a plan for projects to manage in the interim. Projects
are outlined below.
Beach Bluff Pathway
Throughout the month of September 2013, native scrub and native dune seeds were
harvested by volunteers and the Carmel High School Life Science Class. The seeds that
were collected were propagated in early October and throughout the following three
months; the seedlings were watered, thinned and transplanted by the individuals that
collected them. The 800 seedlings have since been hardened off and are ready for out
planting.
Next Steps: Activities were put on hold per Mike Branson and Sharon Friedrichsen's
request and we are waiting to hear if and when we can move forward with this project.
The 800 plants that were produced for this site are being held in our nursery.
Mission Trails
To date, no work has been accomplished at this site.
Next Steps: We are waiting for final direction by Greg D' Ambrosio. Once a plan is in
place, work days will be organized to fulfill the site needs.

Lester Rowntree
This year, our project focus is to tackle the initial phase of re-establishing a native garden
at the Lester Rowntree Entrance and maintain the pathways throughout the garden. One
work day was organized including five MEarth volunteers, sixteen Cam1el High School
students and three members from the Friends of Mission Trail Nature Preserve. Together,
we removed dead and dying debris from the planting site, Vinca major from the garden
entrance and cleared debris piles from the garden trail system. Amanda Francis has met
with Greg D' Ambrosio and Gary Girard, a member of friends of Mission Trail Nature
Preserve. Together, they are establishing a landscape design to be installed by the end of
May2014.
Next Steps: Volunteer dates will be organized in the spring to install the selected plants
with the High school Life Science Students and MEarth volunteers and to maintain the
pathways through the garden.
Forest Hill
Two volunteer days were organized around the removal of hundreds of invasive seedlings.
Mostly English Ivy was removed but also a significant amount of Genista, Cape Ivy,
Acacia and Vinca.
Next Steps: A volunteer work day including support from the Carmel High School
students and volunteers will be scheduled early May for the continued removal of English
Ivy, Gcnista, Cape Ivy and Vinca.

RE: FY 2014-2015 Funding
Mr. Stilwell,
Most suicidal people do not want to die. They feel out of control, isolated, and
without options. They need somewhere to turn. Our primary purpose is to provide
your residents with that place. Wi t h your help, our goal is to prevent suicidal
behavior by providing factual information, educational pre-sentations, first
responder t raining, and intervention services for your residents.
With a staff of 6 and the work of over 90 trained volunteers, we provide a 24-hour,
mult ilingual suicide crisis line, as wel l as, presentations and training for at-risk
populat ions and those they service. While we strive to reach youth because they are
an at-risk group for suicidal behavior, we provide community outreach services for
all at-risk age groups. We also provide grief support services for those who have lost
a family member or fri end to suicide.
Suicide Prevention Service is asking for your financial support in the amount of
$1,00.00 so that we may continue to promot e safety and prevent injury or death
due to suicidal behavior in fiscal year 2014- 2015. We recognize the value of your
support for Suicide Prevent ion Service in t he past, and we appreciate the difficult
financial decisions you are facing. We are requesting funding to be used t o provide
your residents with life- support ing services. As of October 2013 we are an
accredited member of the American Association of Suicidology, a national
organization that evaluates suicide prevention programs for use of best pract ices
and quality of services provided. To become a member we improved many service
delivery systems.
Join us in providi ng present ations and trainings that will increase residents' ability t o
understand t hat suicide is a ment al health issue and how to get help for them and
others. Join us in t he training of law enforcement officers, medical care providers,
and other professionals who work with at-risk populations, increase awareness and
lower t he stigma, helping people get support. Your cont inued participation in our
life supporting partnership will dramat ically impact our ability to provide an
effective level of suicide prevent ion services for your residents.
All ci ty residents are provided access to our tol l free, nationally accredited 24-hour
multil ingual suicide crisis line. We cont inue to be a vital service to City of Carmel
residents. We have provided presentat ions at Carmel Middle School and Carmel
High School In the past, we have also partnered with staff at the high school to
conduct one-on-one youth counseli ng after educational presentations about
suicide. We' ve offered presentations and materials through t argeted outreach to
Carmel Valley High School, Carmel Bay Inn, Carmel Youth Center, Carmel Fire

Department, Carmel Adult School, Carmel Rotary Club, and the Carmel Foundation.
We've also provided numerous presentations at Monterey Peninsula College and
CSUMB. On September 20th, we will be hosting our 8th Annual Coastal Trail Walk in
the City of Monterey to raise community awareness that suicidal behavior is a
health issue and that there is help avai lable.
We appreciate your consideration and thank you for your continued support. We
would be delighted to address the city counci l and/or staff regardi ng this request
and the services we provide. Together, we will continue to provide city residents
with intervention services that will contribute to the health, safety and wellbeing of
individuals and families in your community.
Please join together with other local government jurisdictions to support these
life-supporting services and help keep your community a healthy and safe place to
live.

Re: Support for 2-l-1 from Carmel by the Sea
April11,20l4
Tha ' ou for your past support of2-1-1 in the amount of$1 ,000. You have the
ability to significantly improve the quality of life in our community and we appreciate
your commitment On 3/4/2014, we had the pleasure of presenting some localized
information about how your residents are using 2-1-1 and the social and economic
returns provided by the service referrals. Countywide, 2-1-: responded to calls
resulting in 23,953 referrals for services. More than half the callers have used 2-1-1 in
the past, valuing it enough to use it again. Online, additional informat ion searches at
www.2ll mc.org totaled 15,0 18.
We are especially pleased to be able to drill down into the caUs from residents of
Carmel by the Sea and report that we responded to 36 calls last year. The top four
categories of need from Carmel by the Sea callers were:
J. BasicNeeds(l9)
2. Health Care (9)
2. Consumer Services (9)
4. Criminal Justice & Legal Services (3)
We consider this a snapshot and not a definitive assessment of any particular need or
issue in your community, but it does help paint the picture of your residents' concerns
and our ability to direct them to available help.
Funding Request
We appreciate the opportunity to serve your residents and we look forward to
continuing to do so into the future. 2-1-1 is made possible by a variety of funding
sources, including the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, The Community Foundation
for Monterey County, the County Department of Behavioral Health, the Community
Action Project, and the Cities of Monterey, Salinas, Carmel, and Sand City. We
respectfully request support from the City of Cannel by the Sea to help maintain t he
availability of2-1-l around the clock free of charge to people seeking help. We are
approaching all the cities in Monterey County for support in the amount of $5,000.
Please consider including this contribution to 2-1-1 in your 2014-2015 Budget. Ifyou
have any questions or would like any further information, please do not hesitate to ask.

that is a revenue producer for Carmel -By-The- Sea. With a very small
budget, we are directly responsible for bringing an annual average of
$3 million dollars into the area (a ROI of "' 20: 1) . Without our
