Attachment A. (Citywide)

DISCUSSION
On July 16, 2021, the City Manager’s Proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2022 (FY 22) was delivered by Mayor Garcia to the City Council and community for consideration. City Council budget hearings were held on March 16, July 20, August 3, August 10, August 17, and August 24, 2021. Additionally, Budget Oversight Committee (BOC) meetings and citywide community town hall meetings were also held in the months of April, July, and August, at which the Proposed FY 22 Budget was discussed. On August 24, 2021, City Council approved the amended FY 22 Budget and related budget adoption actions. There were two actions for the Proposed FY 22 Budget that the City Council did not receive on August 24, for which continued action is needed to ensure the Amended Budget for FY 22 can be finalized. These items are being presented to the City Council separately to allow sufficient time to meet the public noticing requirements of the changes and public hearings.

There are two items to be considered for approval in Attachment A. The first, a Resolution to approve the Master Fees and Charges Schedule (A-1). Second, an Ordinance approving Resolution No. WD-1441 (A-3), which establishes the rates and charges for water and sewer services. For the Ordinance (A-3) to become effective on October 1, 2021, the City Council must first declare an emergency to exist (A-2) before adopting the Ordinance.

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Amy R. Webber on August 16, 2021 and by Budget Management Officer Rhutu Amin Gharib on August 13, 2021.
