BUDGET WORKSHOP – MAY 30, 2017

The City of King has released the FY 2017-18/ FY 2018-19 Biennial Budget recommendations. The budget will be presented to the City Council and discussed at a Special Public Workshop on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. at the Council Chambers, 212 S. Vanderhurst Avenue. The public is encouraged to attend and provide input.

This is the first year the City is proposing a two-year budget, which is part of the new budget process approved last year. The City Council established the following budget goals as the first step in the process:

Pay down the City’s debt;
Implement the Plan to End Youth Violence;
Expand economic development efforts with particular focus on implementing the Downtown Streetscape Conceptual Plan;
Increase maintenance and upgrade of the City’s street, sidewalk and wastewater infrastructure; and
Improve customer service.

The budget includes funding to reduce the General Fund debt by an estimated $1 million, a new gang detail officer, the City’s share of costs to add an on-campus Probation Officer position and after-school expanded learning program, and a new Fire Department administrative assistant. A five-year capital improvement program is incorporated in the budget, which consists of a new City entrance sign on Broadway Street and San Antonio Road, citywide police security camera system, Phase I of the Downtown Streetscape Project, increased street improvements, as well as planning and design for the Downtown Plaza Project, Broadway Street/San Antonio Drive Roundabout, and wastewater treatment plant upgrade. A 10-Year Financial Plan is also provided, which proposes to eliminate the General Fund negative fund balance by FY 2011-12 and to establish a 20% General Fund reserve by the end of the 10-year period.
