1. Ordinances for Introduction

a. Ordinance 2007-21
An Ordinance Appropriating Money Out Of The Treasury For FY08 City And Borough Operations

This ordinance would appropriate the City and Borough of Juneau’s FY08 operating budget, excluding the School District. The Charter requires that a public hearing be held on the FY08 operating budget by May 1, 2007, and adoption by June 15, 2007.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at a special meeting on April 30, 2007.

b. Ordinance 2007-22
An Ordinance Appropriating Money Out Of The Treasury For FY08 School District Operations


This ordinance will appropriate to the School District an FY08 operating budget of $78,302,300. The School District’s operating budget is:

General Operations  $63,149,600
Special Revenue (pupil transportation, food service, etc) 4,586,100
Other Operations (student activities, debt service, grants, etc) 10,566,600
Total Budget $78,302,300

The FY08 school budget is supported with a combination of funding sources that includes local funding of $23,657,600 for general operations, $123,000 for Community Schools, $101,000 for Pupil Transportation and $200,000 for youth activities. The $23,657,600 in general operating support will fund the School District to the State Foundation Funding Formula maximum amount (estimated) using a Building Adjusted ADM (average daily membership) rate of $5,810 (SB1). This amount is greater than the current ADM rate provided for in State Statute of $5,380. It is possible the Legislature will approve a funding rate different from the rate assumed by the School District. This will result in a change in the maximum amount of local funding support that can be provided by the CBJ.

State Statute requires the Assembly to determine the total amount of local educational funding support to be provided, and provide notification of the support to the School Board within 30 days of the School District’s budget submission. To meet this timing provision, it will be necessary for the Assembly to determine the amount of funding and provide notice in the month of April. This amount cannot subsequently be reduced, unless the amount exceeds the State funding CAP, but it can be increased. If the Assembly does not set the amount and furnish the School Board with notice within 30 days, the amount requested by the School District is automatically approved. By Charter, the Assembly is required to appropriate the School District’s budget no later than May 31, 2006.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at a special meeting on April 30, 2007.

c. Ordinance 2007-28
An Ordinance Establishing The Rate Of Levy For Property Taxes For Calendar Year 2007 For The Budget For Fiscal Year 2008.

This ordinance establishes the property tax mill rates for 2007, which funds the City and Borough of Juneau’s FY08 operating budget. The Charter requires the Assembly to adopt, by ordinance, the tax levies necessary to fund the budget before June 15.

The mill levies presented in this ordinance support the Manager’s FY08 Revised Budget that is currently being reviewed by the Assembly Finance Committee. As part of the budget review process, the Assembly Finance Committee will review and recommend, to the Assembly, the final mill levies. The final mill levies must be adopted on or before June 15.

This ordinance proposes an operational mill levy at 9.68 and the debt mill levy at 1.11, for a total mill levy of 10.79.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced and referred to the Assembly Finance Committee.

VI. PUBLIC HEARING – None.
