Authorizing the issuance, sale and delivery of not to exceed $75,000,000.00 Sanitary Sewer System Revenue Bonds, Series 2009A of the City of Kansas City, Missouri, for the purpose of extending and improving the City’s Sanitary Sewer System, prescribing the form and details of said Bonds and the covenants and agreements made by the City to facilitate and protect the payment thereof; providing for the collection, segregation and application of the revenues of the sanitary sewer portion of the City’s sewerage system for the purpose of paying the cost of operation and maintenance of the sanitary sewer portion of the City’s sewerage system, paying the principal of and interest on said Bonds, and providing reasonable and adequate reserve funds; and prescribing other matters relating thereto.


FINANCE AND AUDIT COMMITTEE recommends "HOLD ON AGENDA (2/18/2009)"
This item was held one week.

090096
Reducing the Contingent Appropriation in the General Fund by $450,000.00; and appropriating it to cover costs associated with the Leaf and Brush Drop-Off program.


FINANCE AND AUDIT COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS"
Councilman John Sharp testified before the committee on this ordinance. The program needs to be revamped and put back into the next fiscal year budget. The citizens of Kansas City should be able to use the facilities for no charge, provided they are not contractors in the leaf and/or brush business. The commercial user and the nonresident users should be paying more to use the facilities. The operation was not being cost effective and was causing neighborhoods to see an overabundance of brush and other debris. Troy Schulte, Budget Officer, testified that the money coming out of the General Fund would put the balance dangerously low for the remainder of the fiscal year. Barring no further expenditures to the account, the City should make it through the rest of the fiscal year with money still in the account.

(Sub.)
RESOLUTION - Directing the City Manager to maintain the hiring freeze and other existing cost containment measures, limit certain discretionary expenditures, present recommendations to remediate the potential shortfall following the third quarter analysis and immediately begin the reduction in force proposed in the submitted budget.


FINANCE AND AUDIT COMMITTEE recommends "IMMEDIATE ADOPTION AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
City Manager Wayne Cauthen testified before the committee to answer questions the panel had on budget issues. Mr. Cauthen submitted a committee substitute for the resolution in question. He explained the process the staff was using to address the shortfall budget issues. Councilwoman Hermann asked that any monies left over out of department budgets be used for the next fiscal year instead of rolling money to those departments that come in overbudget for the year. It should be the responsibility of each department to operate within the confines of the budgets given to the various departments. Mr. Cauthen stated that he would take her request into consideration. He also talked about staff reductions and reduction in services provided to citizens of the city.
