PUBLIC HEARING

 

8.     2019-2020 BIENNIAL BUDGET CARRYFORWARD ADJUSTMENT

 

Staff Report - Finance Director Blaisdell presented the 2019-2020 budget adjustments reflecting the carryforward of funding from 2018 and re-appropriation in 2019.  The re-appropriation is comprised primarily of beginning fund balance, LRF balances, new and continuing grant funding and additional funding for final City Hall and Police Department items. She noted that the significant change in Restricted Funds are reflective of  carryforwards in revenues and expenditures in Parks CIP, Public Works CIP and Municipal CIP.  Director Blaisdell highlighted revenue adjustments in the General Fund and Police/Public Safety, as well as proposed expenditure projection changes in the General Fund and Strategic Reserve.  She indicated that the financial forecast has been updated to include all the carryforward adjustments and that all existing services and legal and contractual obligations can be met with existing revenues through the forecast period.

 

Public Comment – None.

Mayor Keel highlighted the upcoming agenda items.

 

STUDY SESSION

 

10.      SIX-YEAR TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT PLAN UPDATE

 

Engineering and Capital Projects Director Ecklund presented the proposed amendments to the City’s Six-Year Transportation Improvement Plan.  The primary changes for the 2020-2025 period update include the removal of two projects (Bridgeport Phase 4 and 67th Avenue Overlay) that will be completed in 2019; an addition of a project to replace the Chambers Creek Bridge project; and an update to project schedules and costs.  These minor changes were made to better align projects with upcoming grant requests. 

 

The City of University Place is required by State law to adopt and annually update a Six-Year Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP).  The approval of the Six-Year Transportation Improvement Plan does not commit the City to any financial expenditure; rather, each project is reviewed individually by the City Council in each relevant budget cycle as a component of the Capital Improvement Plan.  Its approval, however, does create eligibility for the City to apply for various grant opportunities, and provides an indication of the City’s planning direction for transportation needs.

 

11.      ADJOURNMENT

 

The meeting adjourned at 8:12 p.m.  No other action was taken.
