Mr. City Manager:

I was pleased to hear that you read this blog and I appreciate your offer to meet with me one on one to explain your budget. Thank you for your offer, but I can read a budget and would prefer an honest, transparent and forthright city government.

You stated in the meeting on Thursday that although I was able to point out several items way over budget that your budget did in fact balance.

Here are some of the overages that are listed for this Fiscal Year in your Budget dated July 31st, 2011:


ADMINISTRATION
Professional Fees $ 92,231 Over Budget
Legal Fees $ 12,404 Over Budget
Election Expense $ 2,638 Over Budget
Telephone $ 959 Over Budget
Travel & Training $ 789 Over Budget
Building Expense $ 9,648 Over Budget
Building Def Maintenance $ 3,579 Over Budget

MAYOR & CITY COUNCIL
Office Supplies $ 661 Over Budget
Travel and Training $ 7,176 Over Budget

If we had these overages and your budget does balance, where did you cut?

POLICE DEPARTMENT
Communication Equipment $ 5,851 Under Budget
Travel and Training $ 2,515 Under Budget

FIRE DEPARTMENT
Travel and Training $ 5,555 Under Budget

STREETS DEPARTMENT
Deferred Maintenance $ 10,000 Under Budget

PARKS DEPARTMENT
Deferred Maintenance $ 3,574 Under Budget
Capital Improvements $ 2,571 Under Budget

POOL DEPARTMENT
Maintenance $ 1,856 Under Budget
Deferred Maintenance $ 3,500 Under Budget
Capital Improvements $ 2,988 Under Budget


We have gone over budget on travel and training for the Administration, Mayor and City Council at the expense of Police and Fire Departments!

We have put off Maintenance and Capital Improvements in order to pay Professional and Legal Fees!

This budget may in fact balance. But at what cost are the citizens and taxpayers of our community paying for your leadership?
