[ARCHIVED] Your Input Wanted on Proposed Budget

Let the Roseville City Council know what’s important to you. On August 8, the City Council will hold a budget hearing and you are invited to comment.

The City Council requested staff present a budget that cuts operations for tax supported programs by 2%. The proposed budget is based on priorities of the City Council feedback from the community survey,Imagine Roseville 2025 and the >,Parks and Recreation Master Plan.

Among recommendations in the draft budget are:
* Reduction of three additional staff positions including eliminating a Recreation Supervisor, a position in Streets and Pathways. * Reducing the Police Community Relations Coordinator position to half time
* Eliminating the Leaf Pickup Program * Eliminating the Rosefest Parade, the Fourth of July Celebration and other events
* Eliminating the Summer Entertainment series * Reducing staffing for the main reception desk
* Zero percent wage increase in 2012 and a one percent increase in 2013

The proposed budget implements a two-year budget cycle, helping the council to make funding decisions based on long-term needs.

In June the City Council agreed to a target not-to-exceed levy increase of 3.4% over the 2011 budget. The difference between the levy and the 2% operations decrease would be used to strengthen capital replacements. The 3.4% target is being used for staff planning purposes. However, the council could adopt a higher or lower not-to-exceed levy in September. The City Council will adopt the final budget and levy in December.

Roseville routinely compares budgets and tax levies with other metro-area suburbs of similar size and demographics. For the tenth year in a row Roseville has the lowest tax ranking. In 1995, Roseville was 12% below the peer average. In 2000, we were 22% below average. Today, we are 27% below average.

So what do you think of these plans? The Council has set aside time at the August 8 meeting specifically for public comments regarding the proposed budget. If you are not able to attend the meeting you can share your thoughts with Councilmembers ahead of time.
