PUBLIC HEARING/BUDGET AMENDMENTS/RESOLUTION:

Public hearing and consideration of a resolution to review and approve amendments to the Fiscal Year 2019-20 Budget.

 

Assistant Budget Manager Chad Moultrie outlined the proposed amendments to the Fiscal Year 2019-20 Budget as follows:  1) To budget for a new Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) to purchase six handheld radios for our Police Dept. which will be operable with the upgrades the Utah Communication Authority is making to the statewide network; 2) To budget for unforeseen replacement of a Fire Dept. Administration SUV which is 15-years old (2004 Durango) and Fleet Dept. has determined the costs to repair the current vehicle outweighs its useful life; 3) To budget for projects which needed to be completed at the Airport while the airport was temporarily closed for the runway reconstruction project, the projects consist of 1) expanding the terminal ramp area for $193,000, 2) expanding the TSA area for $50,000, and 3) repairing the Fuel Farm pavement and roadway for $271,000. In addition, this budget opening provides $150,000 to participate in constructing a shared parking lot for future commercial hangars. The projects are funded by $419,000 from the remaining balance in the Airport Revenue Bond (from a refinancing a few years ago) and $245,000 from the Airport Reserve Fund accumulated from prior years' excess of the airport's direct revenues over direct expenses which are restricted to the airport by FAA regulations. It is anticipated the costs for the shared parking lot will be reimbursed to the City over time as the commercial hangar sites are leased; 4) To increase the contract with the consultant providing public relations and communication

for the airport runway repair project due to asking the consultant to increase their services beyond the scope of work originally requested by city management; 5) To

increase the overall construction budget for the new clubhouse at Red Hills Golf Course to cover change orders needed to improve aesthetics, for unforeseen utility line changes, and for misc. adjustments made during construction. The increase represents an increase of approximately 4% only to the overall budget approved for this project; 6) To increase the budget due to being awarded an Afterschool Match Partnership (AMP) Grant for $150,000 to provide the Afterschool Program for three (3) elementary schools. This replaces our previous Child Care & Development Block Grant (CCDF) grant for $36,075 which accommodated the program for one elementary school. This results in an increase in the Federal Grant revenues budget by $113,925. Additionally, due to expanding the program, various expense accounts also need an increase in their budgets; however $24,000 of the programs expenditures is already included in the Nature Center's existing full-time personnel budget; 7) To increase the budget from $935,750 to $1,340,150 for the Snow Removal Equipment (SRE) building at the Airport for which we received 5 bids; however, they were higher than engineer's estimates. An Airport Improvement Program (AIP) Grant from the FAA will pay for 90.85% of the total costs, and Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) revenues will cover the remaining 9.15%; 8) To increase the Human Resources Dept.'s budget to change a new part-time position approved in HR's budget, to a full-time position due to increasing needs for the Human Resource department's services. The net cost for this change in the current year is $31,685. The full-time position was originally requested in the budget but later withdrawn by HR due to concerns for where the employee's work station could be located. HR has identified a plan for locating this new position; 9) To move the budget for the full-time and part-time City Office Administrative Professional (Receptionist) positions from the City Manager's Dept. to the Administrative Services Dept. (beginning mid-Sept. 2019) as the positions are more in line with the City's future 311 Center and organizational structure, which will be under the Administrative Services Dept; 10) To budget to rebuild the transformer and equipment at the Twin Lakes Substation due to the unanticipated failure of the existing transformer; 11) To budget for an art purchase of $50,000 where the artist agreed to accept payment in two installments: with one payment of $24,000 in FY2019; and the second payment of $26,000 in FY2020. Funding for this year's payment is from fund balance accumulated from prior year’s revenues in the Art Museum Permanent Acquisition Fund; 12) To increase the budget for the RAP Tax Grant awards from $250,000 to $264,500 for this current fiscal year at the request of the St. George Arts Commission's board during their presentation of their recommendations for awards to the City Council; 13) The prior year's budget approved a $100,000 transfer from the Park Impact Fund to the RAP Tax Fund as one of the funding sources for the Virgin River Trail North - Missing Link (Fossil Falls to Rio Virgin/MGF) project. Because expenditures only totaled $32,748 in FY2019, the balance of the $100,000 approved transfer needs to be carried over to the current fiscal year's budget; 14) To budget for the 1525 N Groundwater Drainage Project which is requested to be funded by substituting and delaying the Red Cliffs Park Drainage project which was already approved in the current budget for $400,000. Both of these projects are funded by the Utility Drainage Fees; 15) To increase the budget for the Fort Pierce Wash Maintenance/Sediment Removal Project from $390,000 to $1,161,180 (increase of $771,180) and increase the funding participation amount from the Washington County Flood Control Authority (WCFCA) from $240,000 to $473,180. The balance of funding needed of $538,000 will come from existing approved budgets for the Red Cliffs

Park Drainage project and the 1130 N. Drainage project which will both be delayed to the next fiscal year; 16) To budget for funds for the purpose of acquiring Right of Way (ROW) along the Virgin River so that the City can maintain the flood area (i.e. remove

sediment, vegetation and debris) in the vicinity. Funds will provide for an acquisition agent, title costs, and property costs to purchase over 40 parcels. The Washington County Flood Control Authority (WCFCA) will fund $186,000 (75%) of the costs and the remainder will be funded by re-allocating funds from the Red Cliffs Drainage project which will be postponed to a future budget year; 17) To budget for funds for the purpose of acquiring Right of Way (ROW) along the Virgin River so that the City can maintain the flood area (i.e. remove sediment, vegetation and debris) in the vicinity. Funds will provide for an acquisition agent, title costs, and property costs to purchase over 40 parcels. The Washington County Flood Control Authority (WCFCA) will fund $186,000 (75%) of the costs and the remainder will be funded by re-allocating funds from the Red Cliffs Drainage project which will be postponed to a future budget year; and 18) To budget for the new "quarters" or 0.25% transportation tax approved by Washington County prior to July 1, 2019 and effective October 1, 2019. The first regular distribution will be December 2019. The County will receive .05%; and the City will receive .10% based upon Point of Sale to be used towards a Transit District, and an additional .10% based upon 50/50 Point of Sale and Population to be used towards Transportation projects.
