The FY2020 Operating Budget was adopted in December and represents a spending plan of over $29 million in expenditures representing the priorities of our resources to provide superior services to our community.

The FY2020 Operating Budget is divided into numerous departments and fund budgets, allocating resources to deliver the highest level of service to the community. It depicts the accounting details, the revenue and expenditures, of each department and fund. Another useful way to view the budget is by depicting the specifics not by accounting details but rather by category of sources and uses of revenue, for example, transportation, parks and recreation, or by public safety as a function of service to the community. 

The following is an aggregate synopsis by function of the FY2020 Governmental and Enterprise Funds as budgeted to further show where the City’s money comes from and where the City spends money. The Component Units (TIF Funds) and transfers between the other funds are excluded to accurately depict total sources and uses of revenue. TIF Fund revenues are flowed through the Governmental Funds to each specific TIF Fund. Transfers between funds represent the movement of money from one fund to another fund for subsidy purposes for specific expenditures, within legal perimeters.

On January 2, the Board of Aldermen adopted an ordinance, (Bill 19-91) establishing the offense of keeping a dangerous dog or other animal and a provision for authority to seek a warrant to seize a dangerous animal. The Board recognized that pets and domestic animals enrich the lives of their owners but that in certain circumstances they may become dangerous. The ordinance does not mention any breed or type of pet. 

The ordinance provides that all owners (and their pets) will have their day in court. To impose a fine the city must prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt. If the city believes an animal is dangerous and should put down, the City must give 10 days’ notice to the owner. The owner has the right to appeal to a judge who will make the final decision in a hearing where the city will bear the burden of proof.
