He asked if there were any questions, additions or corrections to the minutes. Trustee Bell said he has a correction on page 7 of 9, in the 7:41:28 PM block.

6:38:23 PM Wigginton Arrived and was seated.
6:38:32 PM Gulledge Discussed the appropriations. He explained that this must be completed and filed with the County by the end of July. Therefore, the ordinance must be passed at next week's Board Meeting. Since he did not get much response on the appropriations, he asked most of the staff and department heads to attend this meeting to answer any questions. He turned the appropriation discussion over to Finance Chairman Callahan.
6:39:27 PM Callahan Asked if this is the ordinance that reflects worst case, best case scenario for expenses.
6:39:42 PM Wigginton Replied that this sets the cap on expenses.
6:39:49 PM Gulledge Agreed and said the Board tries to put in realistic numbers, based on capital improvements, etc. He said the Board must be very careful, as a line item amount is decided, it cannot be exceeded without amending the ordinance.
6:39:53 PM Callahan Suggests starting at the end of the Council table, and asking each Trustee what he wants for his departments.
6:40:10 PM Bell Asked what happens when a line item is exceeded, such as on the first page.

6:41:39 PM Callahan Asked Fire Chief Flaugher if the Fire Department has any grand plans for this year. He replied no.
6:41:51 PM Flaugher Said he has looked over the appropriations for the Fire Department, and his question under salary, 2002-2003, $133,166.00, actual for firemen and not the dispatchers. He expressed concern that the appropriated amount for 2003-2004 of $140,000.00, should be higher due to the raises this year. The figure leave no room for overtime. He suggests raising it to $145,000.00.
6:43:37 PM Bell Asked if the $140,000.00 includes the part time people.
6:43:53 PM Flaugher Answered they are under another line - Fire Calls.
6:44:13 PM Bell Asked if there were any thoughts to adding another full time fireman this year.
6:44:27 PM Flaugher Replied he doesn't foresee hiring anyone this year.
6:45:14 PM Callahan Asked Brussatti what period the figures on the appropriation represented. Brussatti explained he ran the figures from May 1, 2002 thru April 30, 2003. These are actuals from last fiscal year.
6:45:31 PM Schmidt Asked what is included in the $145,000.00 figure, is it just the hourly rate figure or is anything else included.
6:45:51 PM Callahan Replied it is for 3 full time employees, the Chief and two assistant chiefs, who are part time.
6:46:11 PM Flaugher Said he looked over the appropriations for the Fire Department today, and is okay with most figures. However under vehicles, there is nothing appropriated. He thought the pumper would be there, but Brussatti explained to him that it is included in the Interest & Principal line item.
6:46:58 PM Gulledge Asked about equipment for the Fire Department.
6:47:16 PM Flaugher Suggests that $10,000.00 be put in for equipment. He has no plans to purchase equipment, but in case there would be an emergency.

6:48:27 PM Flaugher Replied he would like to add five or six persons during the year. He said most of the gear now is in good shape.
6:48:58 PM Callahan Asked Brussatti if the category Other Employee Insurance is for medical.

6:51:25 PM Callahan Suggested changing the figure to $450,000.00
6:51:30 PM Schardan Talked about overtime, explained how he arrived at his figures. He arrived at a total of $573, 084.00 with another officer included.
6:52:20 PM Gulledge Suggested making the figure $575,000.00 instead of $420,000.00
6:53:41 PM Callahan Asked if the Police Department is responsible for only half of the dispatchers salary and the Fire Department is responsible for the other half, why is there a difference in the split between the two. He was told that none of the overtime is charged to the Fire Department. Also, the Administrative Assistant salary is charged only to Police.
6:56:01 PM Schardan Said he is looking to replace two vehicles, so the $40,000.00 should be okay. The equipment is sufficient at $30,000.00. He said the rest of the numbers are close.
6:58:15 PM Bell Asked if the computer maintenance upgrade covered purchasing replacement PCs. He suggests a higher number. He suggests $10,000.00.
7:00:49 PM Bell Suggests adding a line item of $3000 in Fire Department for computers also
7:01:45 PM Callahan Asked about the appropriation for uniforms. He wanted to know if the total included the clothing allowance.
7:02:07 PM Gulledge Answered it could be the clothing allowance allotted or it could be outfitting a new officer or dispatcher for the first time.
7:02:26 PM Gulledge Discussed the Administrative Department next.
7:02:37 PM Bell Said there should be a computer maintenance / upgrade line item in the amount of $15,000.00.
7:04:53 PM Gulledge Suggests keeping the Legal at $80,000.00. He then discussed the Buildings category. Callahan asked about the utilities line item. Clerk Long explained that line item is for the utilities at the Food Pantry.
7:06:52 PM Callahan Asked about the utilities line item under the Buildings Category, and why it was so low.
7:06:52 PM Long Explained that line item is for the Food Pantry. There isn't a specific department for the Food Pantry, as there is for the other Village Departments.
7:06:56 PM Bell Asked about the number in the Construction Improvement line item. He said if the plans are to re-do the basement in the Police Station, the Senior Center, and the restrooms at the firehouse, these three items alone would be more than the $50,000.00 appropriated. Mayor agreed. He suggests making the number $150,000.00.
7:07:57 PM Brussatti Said he was not able to find a figure for the trash disposal line item. Last year $2000.00 was appropriated.
7:08:16 PM Gulledge Asked what the monthly bill for trash was.
7:08:18 PM Long Said we do not get a trash bill.
7:08:28 PM Gulledge Said he thought it was part of the contract. He suggested putting something in the line item, just in case of some kind of emergency.
7:09:00 PM Brussatti Asked about the Architect/Engineer Services line item. He needs a number for it.
7:09:18 PM Gulledge Suggests putting $10,000.00 in that line item. He also informed the Board that there will be no more rent for the Senior Center from the Church. They have moved into their own building. He then went to the Streets and Alleys Category.
7:10:08 PM Kostyshock Said he has received an update on streets the Village is planning on re-doing.
7:10:49 PM Bell Asked if the mandate for the 159 utilities should be under this department.
7:11:29 PM Gulledge Said no, it will probably be under Motor Fuel Tax. The Village may have to add to it. Also, some of this will be under Water and Sewer. He asked Attorney Wigginton for his input.
7:11:42 PM Wigginton Suggests putting in something in the street and alley category,
7:12:10 PM Gulledge Asked Kostyshock if he planned on hiring anyone, or if the salary line item is sufficient. 
7:12:13 PM Kostyshock Said he is not planning to hire anyone. He has sufficient staff.
7:12:15 PM Gulledge Asked about the vehicle line item. The appropriation is $8,000 and $5,000 was spent last year.
7:12:18 PM Kostyshock Replied that a backhoe needs repair and it will cost around $4500. He thinks the amount should be raised to $12,000.00.
7:12:51 PM Kostyshock Said the rental line items needs to be raised to $4,000.
7:14:52 PM Bell Said the maintenance to streets should include 159, but no amount has been decided.
7:14:58 PM Gulledge Said moving the utility lines on 159 cannot come from the streets. It is water and sewer lines, and will come from that enterprise fund.
7:15:58 PM Callahan Said normally these type of projects are a 50/50 split. The engineer can give a number. In this case it may be a 75/25 split. Moving water lines has nothing to do with the Street Department.
7:16:44 PM Limberg Said in his opinion, the money should come out of Water and Sewer. The street improvement portion will be paid by the State.
7:16:50 PM Gulledge Agreed. He said the sidewalks will be paid by the Village and will be approximately $70,000.00. That money will come from Streets and Alleys. He asked Kostyshock and Brussatti to call Juneau to get a number to put in the line item.
7:18:07 PM Gulledge Suggests raising the utilities appropriation to $5000.00.
7:18:10 PM Callahan Asked if a door was put on the salt shed. He was told yes.
7:18:44 PM Bell Asked about the equipment appropriation. The amount is down from last year. He was told the backhoe was included last year.
7:19:43 PM Callahan Asked about the contractual services. He was told it would cover anything that had a contract. Nothing was spent last year.
7:20:37 PM Kostyshock Asked about engineering. Mayor suggested getting a more accurate number from Juneau.
7:21:27 PM Bell Asked if the numbers for equipment and vehicles were adequate.
7:21:58 PM Presson Suggests raising the equipment to $25,000.00. The vehicle amount is sufficient.
7:22:47 PM Gulledge Discussed the Public Comfort Facilities category next.
7:23:00 PM Callahan Said the Board had talked about upgrading the restroom in the park, or possibly looking at the house across street, to use as a public comfort station.
7:23:26 PM Gulledge Said the Village needs to look at upgrading the big restroom in the downtown park, and tear down the small restroom. His suggestion is $50,000.00 in facility maintenance. He asked Attorney Wigginton about using public comfort money to tear down the restroom. He said yes. Mayor suggested making the amount $60,000. instead of $50,000.
7:25:22 PM Garcia Asked if someone was going to be hired to clean the restrooms for the Homecoming. She was told the firemen and street crew take of them.
7:26:02 PM Gulledge Talked next about the Park & Recreation category.

7:34:28 PM Gulledge Discussed the community relations line item. He explained this included the park concerts, fishing derby, etc. He suggested raising the amount appropriated to $6000. since $5178. was spent last year.
7:34:49 PM Bell Said there will be new events added this year, he suggests raising the amount to $8000.
7:35:01 PM Gulledge Suggest leaving the miscellaneous expenses as is. Building maintenance should have an amount appropriated. He suggests $1000.
7:35:59 PM Schmidt Suggests adding an engineering line item for parks for the improvements. It was decided to add the line and  appropriate $35,000.
7:36:49 PM Gulledge Explained the Insurance category appropriations were best guess estimates.
7:37:32 PM Callahan Asked what the insurance increase percentage was. He was told it was a 19% increase. He suggests appropriating $250,000. for the medical & life line item.
7:38:11 PM Bell Said a public works person was just hired, and the Chief wants to hire a police officer, would $250,000. cover the insurance. Callahan said he thought it would.

7:41:05 PM Gulledge Said the acquisition of land line item should be $20,000 instead of $2,000. It appears a zero was left off. The miscellaneous should be $400 instead of $4000.
7:45:18 PM Gulledge Went on to the Health Dept. category.
7:45:33 PM Schmidt Suggests increasing the operating supplies line item to $2000.
7:46:45 PM Callahan Asked Presson if the big pump by the hospital has been replaced and the back up pump is in place. Presson answered that they were on line.
7:47:01 PM Brussatti Asked if he should add a line item for training under the Health Dept category. 
7:47:21 PM Gulledge Suggested adding $1500 for training. He then discussed the Social Security category.
7:47:32 PM Callahan Said this category should be okay. He said his only concern is that the number keeps growing, and he would like to find a way to recapture it.
7:47:55 PM Gulledge Called for discussion on the IMRF/Retirement category.
7:48:03 PM Callahan Asked Brussatti if IMRF has given him any numbers.
7:48:05 PM Brussatti Said this year the Village dropped a few points, however in 2004 it will be going up slightly. IMRF had a big loss, so everyone must share in it.
7:49:03 PM Gulledge Discussed the Street Lighting category. He feels this appropriation is sufficient.

7:58:29 PM Schardan Discussed the Police Officer trading cards. He is trying to find out if all the officers are interested in getting them. He briefly discussed the taser. He said a citizen has offered $750.00 toward the purchase of the tasers.
7:59:43 PM Gulledge Said he will talk to him about this later. As for the cards, the children in his neighborhood have asked him for his card and want him to sign it.
