2013 Cook County Preliminary Budget

  1. 1. COOKCOUNTY 2013 PRELIMINARY BUDGET ESTIMATES Toni Preckwinkle P R E S I D E N T Cook County Board of Commissioners
  2. 2. Overview of Cook County Preliminary BudgetThe Department of Budget and Management Services (DBMS) has prepared this preliminarybudget report in accordance with Executive Order 2012-1. The report presents an initialprojection of 2013 revenues and expenditures and also provides a mid-year estimate of currentfiscal year 2012 expenses and revenues through the end of the year.For fiscal year 2013, DBMS anticipates a budget shortfall of $267.5 million. This is due to acombination of a $251.4 million anticipated decline in 2013 revenues and $16.1 million expectedincrease in 2013 expenditures. Revenues are projected to decline due to Health and Hospitalfees, the planned 0.25% sales tax reduction, decline in cigarette tax collections, a reduction incase filings at the Circuit Court, and the elimination of inheritance tax collections. The 2013increase in expenditures is due to a rise in personnel costs primarily associated with contractualwage increases, some increased vendor costs, and reduced expense reimbursements. Thisincrease in expenditures is partially offset by other non-personnel savings on contractor costs andutility savings.The analysis of projected revenues and expenditures for 2012 indicates that the General Fund forCook County will have an estimated shortfall of $22.4 million by the end of the fiscal year.Expenditures will come in under budget by $30.4 million and revenues will fall short by $52.9million. This shortfall is mostly driven by the variance in patient fees at the Cook County Healthand Hospital System.A public hearing will be held on the preliminary budget on July 18, 2012 to obtain feedbackfrom various constituencies on budget priorities. The Department of Budget and ManagementServices will work closely with residents, union leaders, Commissioners, other elected officials,and department heads to review potential efficiencies or cost savings that will allow for thepresentation of a balanced budget recommendation to the Board of Commissioners in October.A brief summary of the total estimated 2012 and projected 2013 revenues and expenditures ispresented below: General Fund Summary 2012 and 2013 2012 Estimated 2012 Budget Year-End 2013 Projected Revenues $ 2,236,030,164 $ 2,183,160,231 $ 1,984,591,961 Expenditures $ 2,236,030,164 $ 2,205,583,244 $ 2,252,103,487 Ending Balance $ - $ -22,423,013 $ -267,511,526 1
  3. 3. Projected 2013 ExpendituresTotal 2013 expenditures in the General Fund are projected to increase by $16.1 million over the2012 appropriation.The increase in the 2013 budget can mostly be attributed to rising costs in personnel, includingthe full year impact of the 2012 mid-year wage increase and scheduled step increases. Thisresults in increased personnel spending by $33 million. The 2013 projected expenditures includesome increasing non-personnel costs including payments for drug treatment programs and foodat the County correctional facilities, some increasing information technology maintenancecontracts such as for the Wide Area Network, increases in Health and Hospital technologymaintenance, and the loss of reimbursements including the final payment from the State to thePublic Defender for capital litigation related expenses.Partially offsetting these increases are some contractual savings at the Health and HospitalSystem, as well as savings on technology hardware and software contracts, telecom, and gas andelectricity due to energy saving initiatives and locking in favorable pricing. Also offsettingrising costs are the impact of anticipated full year savings of initiatives implemented during 2012such as reduced population at the Juvenile Detention Center, mainframe outsourcing, and theresults of managed competition.2012 Year-End ExpendituresYear-end expenditures in the General Fund are estimated to come in $30.4 million under theoriginal budget.The majority of these savings can be attributed to the trending decrease in the number of Countyemployees, as hiring has not kept pace with overall attrition. The County anticipates a savings of$10 million in health care costs due to the reduced number of personnel. The County anticipatesa salvage in personnel costs in the amount of $19 million, despite mandated public safety hiring. 2
  4. 4. Overview of Estimated Revenues (2013 and 2012)General Fund revenues support the County’s general operating fund and finance the Corporate,Public Safety and Health sub-funds and activities. The total estimated revenue for FY2012 year-end is $2,183 million for the General Fund, which represents a 2.36 percent, or $52.9 milliondecrease from expected revenue. The preliminary revenue estimate for FY2013 is $1,984.6million for General Fund. This represents an 11.24 percent, or $251.4 million decrease from the2012 budget.Property TaxThe projected year-end Property Tax allocated to the General Fund for FY2012 remains at$335.2 million. The preliminary estimate for property tax revenue in 2013 is $352.9 million,which is $17.7 million greater than FY2012 due to the change in election cycle.FeesThe County received $317 million in revenue from fees for the first half of FY2012. Theestimates for the second half of FY2012 are $522 million of anticipated fee revenues, ending theyear with a total of $839.7 million, or $51.8 million less than the budgeted revenues of $891.4million. This shortfall is primarily due to patient fees at the Hospital and Hospital System and adecrease in the number of court filings. These same factors influence the revenue estimate for2013. The preliminary estimate for fee revenue for FY2013 is $742.7 million, which is $148.7million less than prior year budgeted revenue of $891.4 million. In addition to the decline inpatient fee revenues and court filings, the County no longer will receive $3.8 million from theinheritance tax due to a change in State legislation. The decline in patient fee revenues in 2013is due to several one-time adjustments in 2012 that won’t repeat, including two rate adjustments,reduced expectations related to physician billing, a decline in the application backlog pendingwith the State, and a continuing increase of patients at the Health and Hospital System whoneither have insurance nor are currently eligible for Medicaid reimbursement.Home Rule TaxesThe County received $426.7 million in revenue from home rule taxes for the first half ofFY2012. The estimates for the second half of FY2012 are expected to be $410.7 million to endthe year with a total of $837.4 million, which is in line with the budgeted revenues of $837.9million for FY2012.Some of the home rule taxes are on track to meet or slightly exceed the budgeted amount. Thecollections for sales tax have improved modestly in the past several months, resulting in ananticipated positive variance of $9 million by the end of the year. In addition, a one-timesettlement payment boosted the amusement tax revenue. The declines include the impact forreduced consumption on the gas/diesel tax, current trends and impact of State legislation on 3
  5. 5. cigarette tax, and negative variances expected in the alcoholic beverage tax and use tax.Additionally, the delayed implementation of the non-retailer transaction tax is expected to resultin a $4 million negative variance.The preliminary estimate for revenues from home rule taxes for FY2013 is $727.5 million, whichis $110 million less than prior year budgeted revenue of $837.9 million. The decrease in homerule tax revenue is primarily linked to the planned 0.25% sales tax reduction on January 1, 2013.The sales tax reduction will result in a projected revenue decrease of $87.8 million for FY2013,which is less of an impact than originally expected due to recent economic improvements. Theremainder of the shortfall is primarily due to the expected $20 million decline in the cigarette taxdue to current trends and recent State legislation to increase the State tax, and the continuedimpact of reduced consumption on the gas and diesel tax.Intergovernmental RevenuesThe County received $35.9 million in revenue from intergovernmental revenues for the first halfof FY2012. The estimates for the second half of FY2012 are $104.4 million, ending the yearwith a total of $140 million, which is in line with the budgeted revenues. Revenues remainbelow projection due to reduced funding from the federal government for State Criminal AlienAssistance Program (SCAAP), although improved gaming revenues mitigate the year-endimpact.The preliminary estimate for intergovernmental revenues for FY2013 is $137.5 million, which is$3.3 million less than prior year budgeted revenue. This decline is driven by the one-timeproceeds from Tax Increment Financing (TIF) surplus funds in the amount of $4.3 million, aswell as continued $1.6 million impact of the decline in SCAAP funding due to the federalrevision of the Department of Justice guidelines to limit reimbursements for only “known”detainees.Other RevenuesThe County received $20 million in revenue from the “other revenues” category for the first halfof FY2012. The estimates for the second half of FY2012 total $10.4 million, and are estimatedto end the year with a total of $30.4 million, or $300,000 less than the budgeted revenues. Thepreliminary estimate for other revenues for FY2013 is $24 million, which is a decline comparedto the prior year estimated revenue of $30 million, and is due primarily to the reduced revenuesexpected from proceeds from estates with unknown heirs. 4
