14 October 1, 2013 Honorable Mayor and City Council: The budget is presented amid reports and indicators that the State of Florida, local economies and real estate markets are recovering from the great recession of the past six years. Researchers of the local real estate market forecast the beginning of a gradual return to the normalcy of the market before the boom years. Full fiscal recovery for the City of Fort Myers from the prolonged economic downturn of the great recession will occur, not all at once, but over time. A 3.5% increase in the City s tax base reverses a five year trend of decline, and underscores the need for cautious optimism about future revenue trends. The fiscal year budget experienced an increase of $2 million, or 2.9% in General Fund operating revenues. Even with this boost, revenue still falls short of funding the City s recurring and increasing expenditures. The City lost $2,978,140,341, or 42% of its tax base between the years of 2007 and With the 3.5% increase in taxable value, the City has lost 40.3% of property valuation. Ad Valorem revenue decreased $6.5 million from $41.6 million in fiscal year 2008 to $35.1 million in fiscal year Applying the levied millage rate of , the certified taxable property value generates an additional $1,032,800 in Ad Valorem revenue in fiscal year 2014 compared to prior year. While the budget continues spending restraint and uses reserves to bridge the way to a structurally balanced budget in future years, the revenue increases enable the City to keep service levels stable for core municipal services such as police, fire and public works and to maintain City reserves within their current range during fiscal year The budget includes a 3% across the board salary adjustment for all City employees, exclusive of Fire Union employees. This increase follows a 10 % cut for General employees and a 5.25% cut for public safety employees during the fiscal crisis. Fire Union employees received a 3% increase in salaries in the fiscal year budget. The fiscal year citywide budget is $277,174,198, which is $28,113,277 or 11.3% more than the fiscal year budget of $249,060,921. This is driven by increases in: Capital projects, $12.2 million, Personnel costs, $7.2 million due to a 3% wage restoration for employees, increases in pension and number of positions 10 positions added in the Building, Permits and Inspections Fund, approved during fiscal year 2013 and 4, new part-time Police Dispatch positions Utility debt service expense, $1.2 million Impact fee credit acquisition for State Road 82 right of way, $3 million 14

15 Operating expenses, $1.5 million, offset by $1.5 million in expected expenditure savings based on budget to actual spending trends Transfers, $.7 million Expense reserves, $3.9 million, derived mainly from the pension funds where contributions exceed projected benefit payments The citywide budget includes the general operating budget of $85,292,160 which is $1,088,500 or 1.3% more than the $84,203,660 budget for fiscal year The City s General Fund budget: Incorporates the City s certified taxable values which increase by $140.5 million, or 3.5% including new construction of $111.1 million at the same millage rate as the prior year of , the increase provides an additional $1 million in Ad Valorem revenue Increases Zoning Plan Review fees, generating $190,000 in additional revenue Increases Operating revenues, including sales taxes, communication services tax and utility taxes, based on collection trends and population estimates providing $1 million in additional revenue Restores wages by 3% for Police and General employees at a cost to the General Fund of $1 million, not including Fire employees who received (2) steps, equating to 3% during fiscal year Freezes funding for 19 vacant positions continued from fiscal year 2013, providing a savings of $1.2 million Increases City pension contributions, as determined by the plan actuaries for each of the (3) pension plans, total increase to the General Fund amounts to $2.3 million Maintains funding levels for Special Events, Arts and Culture, Neighborhood Improvements, Step Up to Work Summer Youth Program, equipment replacement funds for computers and Police cruisers, Community Agency Support Program, (CASP) for existing agency participants and the Quality Life Center contribution Adds funds for new CASP agency requests in the amount of $25,100 Adds four, part-time positions for the Police Dispatch operation Provides additional funds for Police overtime in the amount of $200,000 for an increase in coverage of downtown area Funds $40,000 for a contractual historic preservation planner Incorporates expenditure savings of $1.5 million based on budget to actual spending trends The City is working to reduce employee benefit costs, now representing 75% of wages. The City successfully reformed its General Employee s Pension Plan and is negotiating modifications to the Police Pension Plan. The Police Union s contract expired September 30, Several articles in the contract, including management rights and wages, were decided by City Council at an Impasse Hearing on June 24, The Union has since challenged the hearing decision with the State Public Employee Relations Commission and is withholding its contract from ratification by its membership. The City and the Union tentatively agreed upon a pension reform package during contract negotiations reducing the annual cost of the Police Pension Plan to the City by $1.3 million dollars. However, until a contract is approved by both the City and the Police Union, the City cannot implement the new plan. The Fire Pension Plan will be a subject of negotiation when the Fire Union contract expires on September 30,

16 Reforming both the Police and Fire pension plans will ensure future retirement benefits are available to employees and control the City s costs to assist in aligning operating expenditures with revenues. Three of the City s Enterprise Funds the Utility Fund and two golf courses incorporate rate increases in the fiscal year budget. In the Utility Fund, water and sewer rates increase by 4%. The rate increase adds an estimated $1.8 million in revenues to alleviate future borrowing needs to fund capital projects. Rates at the golf courses increase to provide adequate operating supplies for course maintenance and debt repayment towards major course improvements at the Fort Myers Country Club Golf Course scheduled to begin mid April, The 5-Year Capital Improvement Program, (CIP) is $166,809,474, with the total in the first year for fiscal year of $34,663,925. The CIP consists of 7 categories. The categories along with the total amounts included in the CIP are as follows: 1) Buildings, $2,623,100 2) Development, $350,000 3) Equipment, $10,747,000 4) Parks & Beautification, $5,365,000 5) Stormwater, $7,144,836 6) Transportation, $22,045,178 7) Utilities, $118,534,360 The CIP is funded as follows: Cash from operations, $55,213,465 Debt, $89,320,212 (Utility, $78.2 million, Golf Courses, $3.9 million, Yacht Basin, $.1 million, General, $7.1 million) includes past debt of $.6 million Impact fees, $16,836,580 TIF district, $1,300,000 Grants, $1,206,619 Florida Department of Transportation, $2,932,598 Project Highlights of the recommended CIP: ADA compliance renovations Solid Waste truck replacements Network fiber optic replacement Fort Myers golf course renovation Dean Park drainage improvements Billy s Creek restoration Hanson Street from Ortiz Ave. to SR82 improvements First & Second Street improvements Neighborhood utility improvements Reclaimed water production Hanson Street utility extension from US41 to Ortiz Reuse facility at the South Wastewater plant US41 utilities replacement 16

18 Strategic Plan The purpose of every government is to provide public safety, public services, and an enhanced community environment for its citizens. The City of Fort Myers continuously strives to provide the services citizens, business owners and visitors demand. Therefore, City Council and staff meet annually to review and improve its Strategic Plan. Beginning in February, 2013, City Council performed a comprehensive overhaul of its existing Strategic Plan along with creation of a new Mission Statement that will ensure the organization s sustainability for the future. This plan is intended to complement the financial plan that the budget provides. The new Strategic Plan, along with performance measurements, is provided on the pages to follow. Performance measurements are provided by department or functional organization, displayed in a matrix format that ties the functional unit s performance measures to a departmental objective which then ties to a City goal and objective identified in the strategic plan. A performance measurement program is a scorecard that is an indicator to how well the City is executing its Strategic Plan. An effective performance measurement program demonstrates to the citizenry service delivery outcomes and efficiencies. Further, the program should encourage improvements, identify areas of weakness, increase accountability and become the main driver for budget discussions. 18
