Topic: 

A Work Session to Provide an Update on Various Budgetary Matters

Topic Description:

Over the past several months, Administrative and Budget staff have provided periodic updates on issues related to the FY 2009 and FY 2010 budgets during the Board of Supervisorsí monthly work sessions.  For the January 8, 2009, work session, staff will provide updates on: (1) the status of the Landfill Enterprise Fund, (2) impact of proposed State reductions for FY 2010, (3) identification of projects for possible stimulus funding and (4) administrative plans to continue the budget reviews leading to the submission of the County Administrators recommend budget at the end of February.

At the previous work session information was requested about the staffing levels at the landfill.  Attached is a chart that shows the changes that have taken place in permanent and temporary positions.  In preparing the FY 2010 Landfill budget it is obvious that, without some improvement in revenue from the sale of recycled materials and in construction and demolition debris tonnage, further changes including the possible termination of some recycling activities will be needed.  This issue will again be reviewed in March 2009 which will provide some additional experience on which to base revenue estimates for the July 2009 thru June 2010 time period.

Also attached is information concerning the possible impact of further State budget reductions. 

Like most local governments we have also been identifying possible projects that may be candidates for stimulus funding.  Staff has been in contact with County departments, Water and Sanitation Authority and the Schools to compile a listing of projects that could be ready to be bid in a relatively short time period.  The list of projects identified will be distributed at the meeting.
