SUMMARY:A copy of the proposed budget for fiscal year is attached as Exhibit 1-A.Proposed expenditures are $8,133,700 and proposed revenues are $8,288,900 resulting in an increase of $155,200 to the general operating reserve.

 

RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends that the Board discuss the proposed budget and give general direction to staff.No formal action should be taken.

 

BACKGROUND:Prior to fiscal year 2005-06, recent District budgets had been balanced by using large amounts of previously accumulated reserves.At the Districtís strategic planning session on September 29, 2004, staff recommended that a balanced budget be prepared for fiscal year 2005-2006 using a combination of revenue and expenditure adjustments and a diminishing use of reserve funds.At the January 19, 2005 budget workshop the Board adopted an eight part strategy for balancing the 2005-2006 budget.The 2005-06 budget was prepared and adopted consistent with that strategy.
