The CAO has revised this figure to $336 million. However, in order to get a complete picture of what the budget must solve for next fiscal year, it is necessary to start with an alternative, fully burdened projected deficit of $457.5 million. (millions) ($336.3) ($80.0) ($41.2) ($457.5) Revised CAO Estimated FY11-12 General Fund Deficit Remove Assumption that Negotiated Police OT Reduction Continues Remove Assumption that Fire Modified Staffing Continues Fully-Burdened Deficit to be Addressed by Budget
9 Overview of Budget Balancing Solutions New Revenue GENERAL FUND DEFICIT ($457.5) Fire Deployment Plan $53.7 LAPD Sworn Salary and OT Reductions $100.0 Special Fund Maximization One-Time Solutions Fire Deployment Plan Civilian Furloughs $93.4 Reductions and Efficiencies $105.3 Special Fund Maximization $51.0 Reductions & Efficiencies Police Sworn Reductions New Revenue $11.0 One-Time Solutions $43.1 Civilian Furloughs REMAINING DEFICIT $0.0
10 Budget Highlights Proposes Reserve Fund of $177 million (4% of General Fund) Continues Police Hiring to Attrition (9,963 officers) Expands Summer Night Lights Program from 24 Park Sites to 32 Sites Maintains Full Funding for Citywide Gang Reduction and Youth Development Services Restores Citywide Library Hours (6 days of service) Provides 735 Miles of Street Preservation Provides Funding for 50,000 new pothole repairs, a 20% increase from the prior year (from 250,000 to 300,000) Maintains Graffiti Abatement Program and Neighborhood Council program with minimal funding reduction (6.5% and 10%, respectively) Provides Full Funding for Emergency Management Continues Operations at 7 Animal Shelters Citywide Maintains Senior Meals Program
11 Fire Deployment Plan $53.7 M The new LAFD Deployment Plan replaces the Modified Coverage Plan (MCP) that has been in place since The Plan, developed using new deployment software, utilizes Fire Department dispatch data to model resource coverage based on response times, call frequency and incident types with each fire station district. This data-driven approach replaces the current rotating resource closures of the MCP with Fire company closures, redeployments, realignment of resources and flex staffing that refocuses emergency response to match the makeup and distribution of emergency call loads. Example: Reduces deployment of ladder trucks in South Los Angeles which has few structures taller than three stories and replaces them with additional ambulances to meet higher needs for emergency medical services The Plan redeploys 318 Sworn Firefighters and deletes these position authorities over three years. No Firefighters will be laid off
12 Police Sworn Salary and Overtime Reductions $100 M The Mayor s Proposed FY Budget: Maintains police hiring to attrition (9,963 Officers) Assumes $80M in overtime savings through management of compensated time off and deployment of sworn resources. Includes $20M in targeted savings through operational efficiencies Deletes 105 vacant civilian positions Provides funding for phase II of in-car video
13 Civilian Furloughs $93.4 M The City s long-term costs for pensions and healthcare are unsustainable. Employees must begin to contribute towards a greater share of these costs to ensure that benefits are available for current and future employees. A tentative labor agreement has been negotiated with the Coalition of LA City Unions, which includes an employee contribution of 4% of pay for retiree health benefits. The Agreement is pending ratification by union members and final approval by the City Council. Absent any final agreements, furloughs have been included in the Proposed Budget as a fiscally responsible measure to balance the budget (26 days for employees that will not receive cost of living increases and 36 days for employees that are scheduled to receive cost of living increases).
