  • 3. Mr. Douglas S. ChinFebruary 3, 2012Page 3Capital Budget ReviewPro/ect Review -In view of the City’s increasing debt burden, new CIP projects should be justified as to: (1) whythey are necessary; and (2) why they must be implemented in this budget cycle. This requirementfor justification includes projects that received planning and/or design funding in the past, buthave not yet gone out to bid. Ongoing projects should be discussed in terms oftheir currentstatus, projected completion date and amounts expended and encumbered to date versus amountsappropriated.Multiple Work PhasesVery few projects appropriating funds for both pre-construction (i.e., land acquisition, planning,design) and construction work phases within the same budget ordinance are implemented withinthe 24-month fiscal year. Therefore, pleasejustify why projects proposing such multi-phasefunding in a single fiscal year should be appropriated. Explain in detail how all proposedbudgeted phases would be implemented in the same fiscal year.Operating Budget ReviewI am requesting that the Operating Budget Review Presentations be brief and focused on thedepartmental budgets, not on background about the departments. A hard copy of eachdepartment’s presentation should be available to all councilmembers before or at the time of adepartment’s designated briefing slot.Each department’s Operating budget review should contain:1. Details of changes between the FY12 and FY13 Operating budgets.2. Discussion of budget issues new proposals or changes in operations. -3. Discussion ofvacancies, including the current number of vacant positions, the number of vacancies that are expected to be filled by July 1, the number of vacancies that are expected to be filled during FY13, and the number ofvacant positions that may be abolished.4. Discussion of changes in revenue sources for the department’s budget.
