IV. ORDINANCES FOR INTRODUCTION

A. Ordinance 2012-20
An Ordinance Appropriating Funds From The Treasury For FY13 City And Borough Operations.

This ordinance would appropriate $319,525,900 for the City and Borough of Juneau’s FY13 operating budget, excluding the School District. It is necessary to appropriate all transfers between funds that support operations, debt service, and capital projects as well as the associated expenditure within the funds themselves. These transfers account for $90,824,800 of the FY13 operating budget. Excluding the transfers and School District, the CBJ FY13 operating budget, debt service, and capital projects is $228,701,100.

The Charter requires that a public hearing be held on the FY13 operating budget by May 1, 2012, and adoption by June 15, 2012.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced, referred to the Assembly Finance Committee for further review, and set for public hearing at the regular Assembly meeting scheduled for April 23, 2012.

B. Ordinance 2012-21
An Ordinance Appropriating Funds From The Treasury For FY13 School District Operations.

This ordinance would appropriate to the School District an FY13 operating budget of $90,668,200. The School District’s operating budget consists of:

• General Operations $76,135,400
• Special Revenue (pupil transportation, food service, etc.) $ 5,860,800
• Other Operations (student activities, debt service, grants, etc) $ 8,672,000
Total Budget $90,668,200

The FY13 school budget is supported with a combination of funding sources that includes local funding of $26,328,000. This consists of $25,693,000 for general operations, $565,000 for student activities ($200,000 is coming from the 1% sales tax), $70,000 for pupil transportation, and $135,000 for Community Schools. The $25,693,000 in general operating support is the maximum amount allowed under the State’s Education Foundation Funding Formula.

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 is 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, 2012.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced, referred to the Assembly Finance Committee for further review, and set for public hearing at the regular Assembly meeting scheduled for April 23, 2012.

C. Ordinance 2012-22
An Ordinance Establishing The Rate Of Levy For Property Taxes For Calendar Year 2012 For The Budget For Fiscal Year 2013.

This ordinance would establish the mill rates for property taxes for 2012, which funds the City and Borough of Juneau’s FY13 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 FY13 Proposed 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 a total mill levy of 10.95; the components of which are:

Area Millage
Roaded Service Area 2.25
Fire Service Area         0.40
Areawide
Operational                  6.95
Debt Service                1.35
Total                            10.95

I recommend this ordinance be introduced, referred to the Assembly Finance Committee for further review, and set for public hearing at the regular Assembly meeting scheduled for April 23, 2012.
