The Vice Mayor also read the following before continuing with the meeting: “As required by Section 84-1412, subsection 8 of the Nebraska Statutes, notice is hereby given that a copy of the Open Meetings Act is posted for your examination on the wall inside the door to these City Council Chambers.”

The following items of business were conducted.

The Council met in workshop session to receive and review a draft of the budget for the 2019-2020 fiscal year.

Mayor Bannan was present at the meeting at 4:08 o’clock p.m.

City Manager Yanker stated that he has met with all of the Department Heads and Supervisors with regard to their budgets. The highlights in the proposed budget were reviewed with the Council. It was noted that the proposed budget that is being presented is not balanced.

The City Manager stated that there were several cuts made in the budget, but there is a deficit of approximately $288,000 in the General Fund. The Water Department has a deficit of $337,600.00. City Manager Yanker suggested using cash reserves to balance the budget and requested direction from the Council as to using cash reserves.

Discussion was held concerning the current levy of 0.422500 and the possibility of increasing the property tax levy. The City will not know until mid-August, 2019 as to the actual valuation. The Dawes County Assessor is required to provide this information to the City on or before August 20th. Comments were received against increasing the levy, as well as comments indicating there may be some support for an increase.

The proposed budget includes a 3% increase for salary increases, resulting in an additional $50,000.00 being added for personnel costs for the 2019-2020 fiscal year. Councilmember Werner suggested that salaries be increased by 1% and that the remaining 2% be used towards salary increases for the positions that are the farthest behind in comparability. Councilmember Welch spoke in support of salary increases for the City employees.

Rossella Tesch, Director for the Library, and members of the Library Board requested that the Council consider budgeting $40,000.00 for the replacement of the roof at the Chadron Public Library. The issues with the roof were shared with the Council. It was the opinion of the Library staff that a full roof replacement is needed. The following members of the Library Board were in attendance in support of the budget for the Library: Drew Petersen, Chairperson, and John Coates. Also present in support of the Library budget was: Marguerite Vey-Miller and Roger Wess.

Discussion was held with regard to including dollars for the Fire Department. It has been proposed that purchase of a crash rescue truck be split three ways between the ambulance fund, the Fire Department, and the Rural Fire District. It was estimated the cost for each entity would be approximately $75,000.00.

Discussion was held with regard to the need for a new snow blower, which was estimated at approximately $125,000.00. Public Works Director Milo Rust and Street Superintendent Terry Birnbaum stated that if the equipment is not replaced this next fiscal year, it will need to be replaced within two to three years.

The Council was of the consensus to direct the City Manager to remove capital improvements from the 2019-2020 budget for the first reading of the budget, which is scheduled for August 5, 2019.

Motion was made and seconded to adjourn the meeting at 5:12 o’clock P.M. The following Councilmembers voted Aye: Welch, Klein, Bannan, Crofutt, Werner. The following voted Nay: None. Motion carried.
