PUBLIC HEARING

 

4.    Discussion of Proposed Millage Rate FY 13/14

 

Mayor Green announced the public hearing is convened to discuss the millage rate and budget. Council will begin with the City of Port Orange City Council discussion of the tentative millage necessary to fund the tentative budget for the City of Port Orange, the Community Redevelopment Agency for Port Orange Town Center and the Community Redevelopment Agency for Eastport Business Center. The tentative millage rate to be levied is 4.6991 mills per $1,000.00 of valuation and the same ad valorem tax revenues as the rolled-back rate. The rolled-back rate is 4.6991 mills per $1,000.00 of valuation.

 

Councilman Ford supports the millage rate at 4.6991. He is concerned that approximately $1,000,000 has been used from reserves. He also is concerned that ball fields and other Council goals are not included.

 

Vice Mayor Burnette supports the roll back rate because of the extra equity that has rolled over. He believes this rate helps maintain the quality of life for Port Orange citizens but more revenue will be needed in the future to continue the services.

 

Councilman Bastian agrees with the concerns and believed it made sense to be at the higher rate to accomplish Council’s goals. He’s happy with the roll back rate.

 

Councilman Kennedy supports the roll back rate for one more year. He believes this will be the last year of holding at the roll back rate. He wants to start a three-year budget plan. He wants to survey citizens on the services of interest to them.

 

Mayor Green did not support the roll back rate at the budget workshop. He wants the Council to determine their goals. He doesn’t believe the long term issues have been addressed. He supports the roll back rate now because the rate can’t go any higher at this time.

 

Ted Noftall, citizen, addressed Council about roll back rates. He encouraged Council to lower the rate further.

 

Newton White, citizen, thanked Mayor Green and Council for going to the roll back rate. He believes the City has underestimated the revenues and overestimated the expenses. He supports a three-year budget plan.

 

Mayor Green agrees with Mr. Noftall regarding growing out of debt. He wants to help more businesses move to Port Orange.

 

Corey Berman, citizen, asked Council regarding the $500,000 from reserves. Mayor Green said it is from previous years’ equity. Mr. Kisela advised that the revenues are an accumulation of several years.

 

Councilman Ford clarified the reserves being used are closer to $1,000,000 not $500,000 as has been stated.

 

Mark Schaffer, citizen, asked about annexing properties. Mayor Green has met with some of those property owners and they are not interested in joining Port Orange. They are happy in the County. Mr. Kisela said there are efforts being made to get those properties to voluntarily be annexed.

 

Margaret Roberts, City Attorney, asked Council for a consensus. Council agreed to hold the millage rate at 4.6991.

 

5.    Resolution No. 13-42 – Adopting the Tentative Millage Rate for FY13/14

 

Mayor Green read Resolution No. 13-42.

 

RESOLUTION NO. 13-42

 

A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF PORT ORANGE, VOLUSIA COUNTY, FLORIDA; ADOPTING THE TENTATIVE PROPERTY TAX MILLAGE RATES TO BE LEVIED FOR FISCAL YEAR 2013-2014; AND PROVIDING AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

 

Motion was made by Vice Mayor Burnette to approve Resolution No. 13-42, and Seconded by Councilman Kennedy.

 

Mr. Noftall asked how much money is being used from reserves to balance the budget. He asked for an accounting of the monies being used. Mr. Kisela said they are using approximately $1 million from reserves but he doesn’t have the exact number.

 

Motion carried unanimously by roll call vote.

 

Mayor Green announced the adopted tentative millage rate of 4.6991 mills per $1,000.00 of valuation is equal to the rolled-back rate, which reflects no change in ad valorem tax revenues from the rolled-back rate.

 

6.    Resolution No. 13-43 – Adopting the Tentative Operating Budget for FY13/14

 

Mayor Green read Resolution No. 13-43.

 

RESOLUTION NO. 13-43

 

A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF PORT ORANGE, VOLUSIA COUNTY, FLORIDA; ADOPTING THE TENTATIVE OPERATING BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR OCTOBER 1, 2013 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30, 2014 FOR THE CITY OF PORT ORANGE; SETTING FORTH ANTICIPATED SOURCES OF REVENUE IN THE ESTIMATED AMOUNT OF $85,047,789; SETTING FORTH EXPENDITURES IN AN EQUIVALENT AMOUNT; PROVIDING FOR APPROPRIATION PROCEDURES; AND PROVIDING AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

 

Motion was made by Vice Mayor Burnette to approve Resolution No. 13-43, and Seconded by Councilman Kennedy.

 

Councilman Kennedy believes there are ways to reduce but he is happy with the efforts of Staff.

 

Councilman Bastian agrees. He wants to see more public comment and input.

 

Vice Mayor Burnette wants to plan more than three years out. He asked how Staff reduced expenses to hold at roll back rate. Mr. Kisela advised of the reductions including the elimination of 457 quarterly contributions, sick leave buyback program was eliminated from civil service, Public Works and Parks reductions, as well as Police and Fire reductions, other departments also provided small cuts to add up to the total reduction needed. Vice Mayor Burnette asked that Finance provide details of the debt services, showing the progression for the past five to ten years. He also asked for Mr. Kisela’s thoughts and ideas on tightening up the budget for next year.

 

Councilman Ford understands there is a new City Manager and Finance Director; however, he doesn’t like the budget because he doesn’t believe this budget is a roadmap to accomplish goals. He wants the budget to include sports program issues, infrastructure, and other issues and goals Council has discussed. He thinks mistakes were made in the past with cutting mowing and cutting parks. He wants the budget to include rollover funds from the previous year. Councilman Ford believes the cuts should have come from one area rather than a little amount from each department. He doesn’t believe he had all of the tools to make a decision on the budget. He agrees with a conservative budget but wants more clarity about the overages that may be there at the end of the year. He wants to discuss the policy issue of rollover monies.

 

Mayor Green said he wants rollover monies assigned to specific projects and not diverted to other items.

 

Mr. Berman addressed Council regarding the budget for the City Hall repairs and renovations. Mr. Kisela said it is in the 2012 budget.

 

Mr. Noftall addressed Council regarding specific budget items and the need for discussion (i.e.: VCOG, Team Volusia, etc.) Mayor Green supports VCOG for the benefits to the City. Mr. Noftall asked about the sick leave buyback program. Mr. Kisela advised that the annual sick leave buyback program was eliminated as well as the 457 contributions as directed by Council. Mr. Noftall asked where the funds came from to pay the pension expenses. Mr. Kisela advised that policy direction came in 2008 from Council. Mr. Noftall asked about the reconciliation of the actuary’s recommendation for pension contributions and the amount included in the budget. Mr. Saunders can provide the reconciliation. Mr. Noftall asked if the personnel projection budget is being adopted along with the operating budget. Mr. Kisela said yes. Mr. Noftall asked about the changes to the Mayor’s salary. Mr. Kisela said the first draft did not include the 457 contributions. Mr. Noftall questioned the salary amount of Frank Flagg. Mr. Kisela said the benefits are being added in pursuant to Council direction.

 

Mr. White addressed Council regarding the personnel projection document. He believes there are some employee names listed incorrectly under the wrong job title. Mr. Kisela advised that the personnel projection document is a snapshot in time and is not always up to date. He advised that Staff is still evaluating the IT Director, HR Director, and Risk Management.

 

Mr. Schaffer addressed Council regarding developing staff expertise rather than outsourcing services. He asked about the non-departmental fund and what is included in that amount. Mr. Kisela has found it difficult to follow the funds. Mr. Schaffer requested a balance summary sheet to be included. He asked about the hiring of the additional seven firefighters approved by Council. Jerry Monahan, Public Safety Director, advised that the positions were not new positions. They were already budgeted. Those new employees needed to be trained. Mr. Schaffer would request Council direct Staff to prepare a monthly detailed overtime report. Mayor Green believes it is already being provided. Mr. Kisela will check. 

 

Motion carried 4-1 by roll call vote with Councilman Ford voting no.

Motion was made by Vice Mayor Burnette to approve Resolution No. 13-44, and Seconded by Councilman Kennedy.

 

Councilman Ford asked if road resurfacing is a capital project. Mr. Kisela said yes. Mary Anderson, Public Works Director, advised that there is a 26-year cycle plan on road resurfacing.

 

Vice Mayor Burnette understands the motion is for FY2014 portion of the CIP; however, he thought Council agreed to remove the Customer Service kiosks from the 2016 CIP.

 

Councilman Bastian suggests Staff review the County Capital Budget to coordinate and not have surprises.

 

Councilman Kennedy wants to see a better budget and a better process to get to that budget and he’d like to see it start in October, 2013.

 

Councilman Ford asked about the phone system being purchased in the FY2015 budget. He received complaints about the system being looked at.

 

Mr. White does not support the phone system item. He wants a human answering the phones and wants to see improvements to the website.

 

Mr. Noftall addressed Council regarding the budget amount listed in the resolution. He asked if the resolution amount shows up in the CIP. Mr. Kisela said adding up each individual budget gives the amount listed in the resolution. Mr. Saunders advised that the resolution also includes funds not showing in the CIP, page 15.
