Review of Financial Statement
Income is now approximately $40,000 below budget. This variance to budget is due to RITA tax income being $15,000 lower than expected. In addition, Bentleyville has not received approximately $30,000 of the State portion of Local Taxes that are expected, but that have not arrived yet.
We currently have a deficit of $22,000 to budget, but expect that when the $30,000 arrives from the state portion of local taxes that we will again be ahead of budget by approximately $8,000.
Finance wants to clarify with the Law Director whether or not Ordinance 2013-12 is necessary to clear up a conflict with proposed Ordinance 2013-13 regarding the Mayor's Spending Authority. Finance feels that Ordinance 2013-12 may not be necessary.
Finance approved moving forward with the RITA subpoena program.
Finance approved the fiscal officer spending $350 to have printers and copiers repaired.
Finance approved paying the Village Dispatch payment(s) out of the Capital Expense and Major Repair Fund.
Finance was informed that we will need to amend the budget by approximately $16,000 to $17,000 to pay the Chief of Police's sick pay for this year pending his retirement.
There was some discussion on the agenda motion itemizing exceptions to the need for Council approval of village expenditures and discussion on the Ordinance on Mayor's Spending Authority. Finance is going to bring both items up for discussion at the Council Meeting.
Meeting adjourned at 6:50 P.M.
