Adopt FY 2021-22 Budget




The Town Manager's proposed budget has been reviewed in detail during four Council budget work sessions on March 13, March 15, and April 19, 2021 and during a public hearing on April 12, 2021.


Due to the lingering economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is the stated intent of Council to adopt the budget as proposed and adjusted and reserve an amount equal to 2% of the general fund budget (approximately $531,300) representing a freeze on salary increases, a portion of travel and training expenditures and a portion of parks and recreation expenditures. This reserve can be lifted by Council action at its discretion.


At the time of this writing, no official guidance has been received about the amount or timing of expected American Recovery Plans (ARPA) funds.  Approximately $46,900 has been budgeted for the costs of virtual meeting transmission software in both revenues and expenses for FY 2021-22, funded by ARPA.  The remaining ARPA funds are not expected to be received until after the end of FY 2021 and will be brought to the public in the form of a public hearing and Council appropriation and budget amendment when the amount and distribution date is known.


The budget, proposed for adoption as revised for fiscal year 2021-22, in the total amount of $43,221,000, is appropriated as follows for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2021 and ending June 30, 2022:
