PASSED BY CONSENSUS: To request the Finance Committee review the pros and cons of a <br />f two-year budget process and make a recommendation to the Council. <br />�/ PASSED BY CONSENSUS: To reduce the proposed budget for the Historical Society from <br />$4,000 to $2,000. <br />PASSED BY CONSENSUS: To add a $1,000 contribution to the Morgan Center for their <br />services in preparing Town -wide mailings and to further request the Mayor to send a letter with <br />the check expressing the Town's appreciation. <br />PASSED BY CONSENSUS: To add $5,000 to the Office Equipment budget for a new computer <br />to be used for public access. (Although there was no room in Town Hall for such a computer, it <br />was felt it could be located in the Council Chambers.) <br />Siegel referred to the Public Safety budget and asked if this included funds for the Teleminder <br />project. The City Manager responded that it did not. Siegel recommended that the City Manager <br />advise the Sheriff that the Town would consider the Teleminder project a priority use of COPS <br />money if, after staff review, Council decided the Teleminder system a worthwhile project for the <br />Town. Johnson referred to the Office Equipment Capital budget and specifically to the <br />microphones and presentation equipment for Council Chambers. He highly recommended <br />looking at the entire system and notjust approaching this in a piecemeal fashion. Johnson <br />recommended a system such as that used at Michael's at Shoreline. The City Manager did <br />comment that they hoped to put in place a workable system but also cautioned against a <br />sophisticated, expensive system that may be made obsolete if Chambers were remodeled in the <br />future. Hubbard referred to the autocad system and asked how much the Town used this. He <br />noted from experience that it required constant updating to make it worthwhile and also required <br />a lot of training. The City Manager reported that both the Assistant Engineer and Engineering <br />�W Technician were trained in autocad and the autocad system was a part of the Town's parcel data <br />base. He foresaw the use of the amocad system as being quite worthwhile and of interest to <br />those involved in projects. Siegel referred to the Vehicle and Equipment budget and the <br />replacement car for the Building Official. The Planning Director responded that the vehicle <br />currently used by the Building Official was a Taurus and not a suitable car for the terrain of the <br />Town. The Taurus had actually replaced a former vehicle which was not in running order nor <br />fixable. <br />MOTION SECONDED AND CARRIED: Moved by Siegel, seconded by Hubbard and passed <br />unanimously by all members present to approve the proposed budget for FY 98-99 with the <br />changes made by Council and to schedule said budget for a public hearing at the June 17" <br />Council Meeting. <br />3.
