BUDGET STUDY SESSION• <br />The City manager presented a brief overview of the proposed budget before Council. <br />The following notations were made: 1) the capital improvement budget was not <br />included in the proposed budget; 2) a separate budget had been established for <br />the Town's wumittees; 3) fringe benefits were listed in the salary sections to <br />more accurately reflect Employee costs; and 4) maintenance costs of the Town <br />vehicles were allotted to the individual budgets. <br />Council discussed in general the budget before then, noting that it involved <br />the establishnmt of priorities and how to fund said priorities. Perkins asked <br />for a one-page suimery showing expenditures and revenues. Discussion was also <br />held concerning the possibility of adopting a preliminary budget until the audit <br />figures were available and then adopting a final budget. It was further agreed <br />that the budget should be updated throughout the year, perhaps on a quarterly <br />basis. Council also asked that each budget page be nuunbered and dated for clarifi- <br />cation purposes. <br />PASSED BY CONSENSUS: To place the proceeds from the Matadero Creek Subdivision <br />in the appropriate Tann funds rather than in the General Fund. <br />PASSED BY CONSENSUS: To change the 1982-83 proposed figures in the budget to <br />an actual best guess as to what the figures will be for that year. <br />Louise D onkert, 127431BlackMountain Road, expressed the opinion that the <br />fisting 'materials, supplies and services' was too much of a catch-all. There <br />should be more of a clarification of what services were involved. Mrs. Dronkert <br />also noted that the Finance Committee would be reviewing the budget for possible <br />suggestions as to format changes. <br />Lewis Throop, 27272�rne Park Lane, suggested additional explanations of <br />certain salary increases for dT +' ,cnts for purposes of clarification, i.e. <br />identification of personnel changes, department formats, etc. <br />
