The Clerk stated that had been some changes to the General Fund since the last time it was reviewed at the beginning of the budget season. She stated that since City Hall will be traveling to Sunnyside on a daily basis to make the bank deposit, a fuel line was created to show the expenditure. She explained that the Court had an added expense for the Court Probation services, which $1,750 was allocated under professional services for that service. It was also explained that there were added expenses associated with the new Splash Park, the cost for utilities (water) was increased to be comparable to what was spent this year and the added cost for the portable restrooms was also budgeted for. Lastly, there was money allocated for the supplies to be sold at the new portable concession stand at the downtown park. There was some discussion about trying to have some type of permanent structure. She also explained that as some of the current lines exceed what was budgeted for 2018 and because the 2019 figures are based off the current figures, then the 2019 figures would increase as well. As discussed earlier in the budget session, the increase for the park rental fees are also recognized in this budget which were based off of the rentals of this year.
The budget meeting of November 13, 2018 adjourned at 6:25 p.m.
