2020 REVIEW OF DRAFT BUDGET
Rae Ann Ailts handed out budget books to the Council and reviewed the preliminary 2020 budget. A significant event in 2020 is an extra payroll that needs to be budgeted for. This happens every twelve years or so. Included in the revenue portion was the possible sale of City land on GG. Council members requested to remove that item from the budget since they have not decided whether to sell this property at this time. The appraisal for this property should be complete in the next two weeks. Discussion followed. Staff will bring back budget options at the work session on October 28, 2019 for approval to publish the budget.
