1. BUDGET WORKSHOP - FY2004/05
The Council met to finalize the Budget for FY2004/05. Pat Larsen stated that the budget is still out of balance by $74,000. Department supervisors were able to reduce their departments another $185,000 out of the $200,000 needed. Capital projects were reviewed as well as personnel. Pat stated that at the last meeting, the Building Maintenance Department was going to be contracted out. This department has been placed back in the budget. Also included in the budget is a 1.5% cost of living increase. Anniversary increases will be placed on hold for a year. Gary Sonntag presented the following three options for consideration for the Building Maintenance Department..
(1) Contract out all building maintenance and janitorial and retain two full time
employees to handle special projects, such as mechanical and carpentry/
(2) Retain the existing department as it is, with the exception of laying one
employee off and transferring another one to the Parks Department
(3) Reorganize the existing department, lay off a part time employee, move one
full time employee to the Parks Dept., change the supervisory position to a
lead man, and place the whole department under the Public Works Director. Under
this option, the Parks Department would be responsible to maintain City Hall grounds.
The Facilities Specialist in Building Maintenance would be split between the swimming
pool facility and the rest of the city buildings.
