Post Date:06/14/2019 4:25 PM

At its meeting on June 11, the City Council reviewed recommendations for supplementary additions to the City's fiscal year 2019-20 budget, which covers the time period July 1, 2019, to June 30, 2020.

Fiscal year 2019-20 is the second year of a two-year budget cycle which began on July 1, 2018. A preliminary budget for 2019-20 was set as part of the 2018 budget process, so this year's budget process involves making relatively minor changes. The City is projecting total general fund operating expenditures of approximately $20,200,000 in 2019-20, with operating revenues exceeding operating expenditures by $488,000 and general fund reserves of $1,175,000.

The following additions to the City's 2019-20 budget were reviewed by the City Council and moved forward for final review:

Requests from City Departments
  • Request from City Administration to update the City's financial system ($15,500)
  • Request from City Administration to upgrade the City's computer system to Windows Exchange Server 2019 ($31,712)
  • Request from City Administration to install video recording equipment in the City Hall Conference Room ($35,000)
  • Request from City Administration to outsource the video recording of City Council meetings to the Community Media Center of Marin ($18,000)
  • Request from the Community Development Department to fund phase one of a records management program to digitize the City's building and planning archives ($50,000)
  • Request from the Sausalito Police Department to replace the recording system for the interview room at the police station ($54,000)
  • Request from the Sausalito Police Department to restore the position of captain ($15,000)
Requests from Community Partners In addition to the items above, the City Council added an appropriation of $50,000 for disaster preparation, prevention, and geologic mapping.

A final budget will be presented to the City Council for approval at a public hearing on Tuesday, June 18. Any questions about the City of Sausalito budget may be directed to Administrative Services Director and Assistant City Manager Yulia Carter at ycarter@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4105.
