FINANCE & PUBLIC SAFETY REPORTS 6-15-16 LMS
Salmon City Councilman Jim Bockelman told the June 15 meeting of the Salmon City Council that City Finance Director Amy Fealko told the Finance Team the Fiscal Year is 67 percent complete and that on the whole everything is on track.
He said city departments are showing the same percentage. Bockelman said any variables shown were explainable.
He said a local motel is two months delinquent on making Local Option Tax payments. A letter has been sent and the situation will be closely monitored. Bockelman said that a payment plan has been worked out for the first motel that became delinquent and that payments are being made. He said the team discussed whether or not governmental agencies are required to pay a Local Option Tax and if so, are the motels collecting it. Fealko will be looking into the questions.
She will also be checking to see what fees other communities charge the Forest Service for the dumping of human waste.
Bockelman has talked with a solar energy consultant and will report his findings at a future Finance Team meeting.
Councilman and Public Safety Team Chairman Ken Hill gave a brief report of his teamís last meeting. He said the team was introduced to newly recruited Police Officers Brad Cable and Rick Carlson. His report generated a request that all council members be introduced and Hill replied scheduling difficulties had prevented the initial introduction opportunity.
Hill said the team went on to discuss the Police Departmentís upcoming budget requests which indicate no major changes from last year.
The next Public Safety Team meeting will be July 13 at 4:30PM. The next Finance Team meeting will be at 11AM on the 13th. Both meetings will take place in the City Hall Conference Room and are open to the public.
