Staff Summary

                     Through cooperation with all departments and agencies as well as the Standing Committees and Financial and Administrative Committee, the FY 2019 - 2020 Budget is presented for approval.

                     The operating funds that provide the funding for most governmental operations are balanced, using a flat tax levy that is the same as the amount extended in FY 2018-2019.

                     A Capital Improvement Fund has been created and presented for the first time this year and therefore, the Corporate Capital Improvement Plan (CCIP) is presented together with the FY budget, rather than as a separate Board action.
