City Preparing 2019-20 Budget

Budget Schedule
The preparation, review, and adoption schedule for the City's 2019-20 budget
City staff and the City Council are hard at work on the City of Sausalito's fiscal year 2019-20 budget, which covers the time period July 1, 2019, to June 30, 2020. By state law, the City must adopt its annual budget appropriation authorization before a new fiscal year begins.

The City enters into the 2019-20 budget process in strong financial condition, with an undesignated general fund balance of $3.06 million for fiscal year 2018-19.

Fiscal year 2019-20 is the second year of a two-year budget cycle which began on July 1, 2018. A preliminary budget for 2019-20 was set as part of the 2018 budget process, so next year's budget focuses on tweaking the numbers approved last year rather than starting from scratch. The preliminary 2019-20 budget approved in June 2018 called for general fund revenues of $17,792,079 and expenditures of $17,457,057.

City staff and the City Council will adjust the preliminary 2019-20 budget using a modified zero-based budgeting methodology that requires departments to take a programmatic approach to the budget and prioritize any proposed new expenditures in terms of impact on the service levels to the community. The City Manager and the City Council will then determine which new expenditures will be approved as part of the revised budget.

The revised 2019-20 budget is expected to make the following assumptions about increased revenue:
  • Property tax revenue will increase by 1.5%, based on prior year trends and information provided by the County of Marin. Property tax is the City's largest revenue source.
  • Sales tax revenue will increase by about 2%, based on information provided by the City's sales tax consultant.
  • Transient occupancy tax revenue will also increase, based on additional revenues from Sausalito Measure L, which was passed by voters in November 2018.
The City Council received presentations on the status of the 2018-19 budget and the 2019-20 budget process at its meeting on Tuesday, May 14. According to the schedule for the 2019-20 budget, the next steps in the process are a review of the base budget and capital improvement projects by the Finance Committee on May 21, followed by City Council review on May 28. Formal adoption of the 2019-20 budget is tentatively set for the City Council meeting on June 18. All meetings are open to the public, live-streamed, and video recorded.

License Plate Cameras Lead to Arrest for Vehicle Theft

Map
The 4000 block of Bridgeway
At approximately 4:15 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15, the Sausalito Police Department received an alert from its license plate recognition cameras of a stolen vehicle entering Sausalito from the 4000 block of Bridgeway. The vehicle, a 2016 Lexus, had been stolen in San Mateo on May 12.

Police officers responded immediately and conducted a comprehensive search of the area. At approximately 4:40 p.m., Officer Honour Knudsen located the Lexus driving northbound in the 4000 block of Bridgeway. Officers stopped the Lexus on Gate 6 Road and detained the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, a 27-year-old resident of Sausalito named Harry McHugh. Further investigation led to McHugh being arrested and booked into the Marin County Jail for possession of a stolen vehicle. 

Since the City of Sausalito's license plate recognition camera system became operational on May 18, 2017, 20 stolen vehicles have been recovered, leading to the arrest of 26 individuals. Any questions about the City's license plate cameras may be directed to Lt. Bill Fraass at bfraass@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4170.

City Council to Receive Update on Mudslide Cleanup

Mudslide Debris Field
The upper debris field as it looked on Saturday, May 11
The City of Sausalito consultant working on an initial recovery strategy for the February 14 mudslide is scheduled to present a status update to the City Council at its meeting on Tuesday, May 28. The presentation by Harris & Associates will review the debris removal process and provide an updated estimate of a project timeline. At the time a contract was signed on April 8, the Harris & Associates estimate was that debris removal in the mudslide area would begin in July 2019 and conclude in September 2019.

Crescent Avenue remains closed between 47 Crescent and Main Street due to the large debris pile deposited at the base of the mudslide. Cleanup of the debris pile and the debris field on the hillside is complicated by the presence of toxic material, the removal of which is subject to strict federal regulations. If the City of Sausalito fails to comply with these regulations, it risks losing eligibility for disaster relief funds to offset the significant cost of the removal process.

Administration. Every five years, the City of Sausalito assesses its sewer management costs and needs, then establishes sewer rates to support those needs. Based on the current rate study, the City of Sausalito is proposing to raise the City's sewer rates by an aggregate of 4% per year over the next five years. Funds generated by the higher rates will make it possible for the City to make capital improvements that are necessary for us to continue to maintain compliance with Clean Water Act requirements.

A public hearing on the proposed increase has been scheduled for June 18, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers at 420 Litho Street.

Invasives: More Than Just Bugs and Blooms. Invasive plants brought in from other parts of the world represent a significant challenge to the natural environment of our home landscapes in Marin. When a gardener thinks of an "exotic invasive," it is usually an insect or a plant. These are, indeed, awful threats, but there are exotic invasive diseases, aquatics, and mammals that also pose important threats to our native species and environments. Based on research done by the UC Cooperative Extension staff, Marin Master Gardener Bob Mauceli will discuss some examples of these alien threats and what California is doing to deal with them. This program in the City Hall Council Chambers on Thursday, May 30 at 7:00 p.m. is co-sponsored by Sausalito Beautiful and the Sausalito Library.

Violin and Cello Concert. A few months ago, Lish, a member of the staff at Spaulding Marine Center, was going through the archives and found a trove of Myron Spaulding's old sheet music from when he played with the San Francisco Symphony. Lish called a concert violinist friend to come have a look, and soon the sound of violin was echoing through the boathouse. "Myron must have been good," the violinist said, "because this stuff is really hard." Thus was born our musical tribute to Myron Spaulding. On Friday, May 31 at 5:00 p.m., violinist Benjamin Bregmen and cellist Leo Baluk will perform several pieces from Myron's archives, selections of Bach, and a selection of music from the 1920s. Donations appreciated to support our musicians. Spaulding Marine Center is located at 600 Gate 5 Road.
