RECOMMENDATION

1) Adopt Resolution No. 2006- , approving the City Budget for Fiscal Year 2006-2007; and, 2) Adopt Resolution No. 2006- , establishing salary and hourly ranges for competitive and management employee job classifications.

DISCUSSION

1. Adoption of the FY 06-07 Budget

In 2005, the City prepared a two-year budget document for FY 05-05 and FY 06-07. Because it is the second year of the two-year budget cycle, the FY 06-07 budget is shown as “proposed” in the current budget document. By adopting the City budget one year at a time, the Council has the opportunity to make any modifications it deems necessary to the proposed budget for FY 06-07, based on changes in circumstances that may have arisen since the document was prepared a year ago. Based on direction provided by Council at the April 29, 2006 Budget Workshop, staff has incorporated the changes and is now presenting the FY 06-07 Budget to Council this evening for adoption, which would go into effect on July 1, 2006. To assist Council in the final review of the FY 06-07 Budget, attached is a Fund Summary chart, which estimates the City’s fund balances for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2005 (see Attachment A to the Budget Resolution).

2. Recommended Salary Range Adjustments

In an effort to keep the City’s salary ranges current, the City typically uses the March Consumer Price Index (CPI) to adjust the salary ranges each year for each of the City’s job classifications. The March 2006 CPI shows an increase of 4.2% over the previous twelve months. Therefore, this figure has been used in the attached Salary Range Adjustment resolution. The resolution also continues the monthly car allowance for Department Heads and the Assistant City Manager established by the Council in 1999.
Generally, adjustments to the City’s salary ranges and hourly rates do not result in employees receiving automatic increases. However, because the City has filled a few positions over the last year at the bottom of the current ranges, their salaries would fall below the range after the new schedule goes into effect on July 1, 2006. Because the cost of these adjustments will be minor, they can be accommodated in the budget as proposed. With the exception of these few adjustments, the existing method of employee compensation, whereby the amount of any salary adjustment is based on an employee's annual performance evaluation, will remain in place.

CONCLUSION

Based on the direction provided at the April 29th Budget Workshop, staff has prepared a budget resolution for the Council’s consideration. Staff has also prepared a resolution to adjust the City’s salary ranges and hourly rates based on the CPI over the last twelve-month period. The City Budget for FY 06-07 is now being presented to the Council at a public hearing for review and adoption. If the Council desires to make any additional changes to the City Budget, they can be read into the record during tonight’s budget hearing.
