Budget review on agenda
The Orland City Council will conduct a mid-year budget review on Tuesday.
City Manager Peter Carr is to update the body on how the city is doing with revenues and expenditures half way through the 2012-13 fiscal year.
His report notes some revenues are up slightly from those predicted last June, while others are even or down slightly.
The most notable decrease is the city's share of motor vehicle taxes which are down by $39,000 for a "net wash" of revenues, Carr's report said.
Expenses are just $23,411 under budget, he said, but both revenues and expenses are within one percent of the budget forecast at this time and are expected to remain so through the end of this fiscal year.
The general fund reserves were projected to be $602,000, he said, and are at $637,000 now. The minimum reserve is $585,000.
Orand's revenues are running about $2.9 million with around $1.4 million left at this point.
The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Carnegie Center, 912 Third St.
It was moved to Tuesday because of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
In other business, the council is to consider the appointment of two people to the city's library commission.
Current Commissioner Gene Russell has applied for another term while Kathleen Claire is seeking to replace Patricia Mullinax who did no re-apply. The terms expire Dec. 31, 2014.
City Attorney Greg Einhorn will report on the commissioner appointment process while Police Chief J.C. Tolle is to make a presentation on Orland Police Department activities.
Updates on a potential partnership between the city and Orland Unified School District on improving the city swimming pool and selection of a contractor for the Orland Library addition round out the agenda.
