NEXT STEPS

A – Budget Committee to consider proposed budget

The proposed budget will be considered by the Clackamas SWCD Budget Committee on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at 2:30 pm in the Clackamas SWCD’s conference room. This will be the second meeting of the Committee and public comments will be hard at this meeting.

Following public comment, the Committee is expected to approve, or modify and approve, the proposed budget.

The role of the Budget Committee is to review the proposed budget submitted by the Budget Officer, and either approve it as proposed or modify it. The Committee elects a presiding officer to help the Committee reach an affirmative vote in approving the budget.

Specifically, the Budget Committee:

  • receives the budget document
  • hears the budget message
  • considers public comment
  • discusses and revises the budget as needed
  • approves the budget
  • approves the property taxes to be levied

All meetings of the Budget Committee are subject to Oregon’s Public Meetings Law (ORS 192.610 through ORS 192.690).

B – Budget hearing

Clackamas SWCD will hold a public hearing on the approved budget on May 21, 2019 at 4:00 pm in the Clackamas SWCD’s conference room. The purpose of the hearing is to receive public comment on the approved budget.

C – Board to consider budget

Following the public hearing, the Clackamas SWCD Board of Directors will adopt, or modify and adopt, the approved budget.

SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN THE PROPOSED BUDGET

Changes described below refer to changes made to the proposed budget after the first meeting of the Budget Committee.

A – Supplemental budget adopted

Following a public hearing on April 16, 2019, the Clackamas SWCD Board of Directors adopted a supplemental budget for the current fiscal year. The supplemental budget changed the financial resources available at the beginning of fiscal year 2019-2020 for several funds. Accordingly, we modified resources (income) and requirements (expenditures) in the funds to balance each fund in the FY 2019-2020 proposed budget.

B – Changes in the General Fund

  • Due to changes made in the current year budget, the beginning fund balance on July 1, 2019 decreased.
  • A $550,000 grant is captured in the General Fund, adding to resources available.
  • The growth in assessed valuation of taxable real property was projected at 4.0-percent in the first proposed budget. For the second proposed budget, we increased the estimated growth in assessed valuation to 4.25-percent. At the time this was written, the Clackamas County Assessor had not yet published that office’s estimate of assessed valuation growth.

C – Changes in departments in the General Fund

Each department in the General Fund captures maximum appropriations for each major arm of the District’s activities.

District Operations Department

  • No changes in Personnel Services were made.
  • In Materials and Services, we reduced the proposed appropriation for contracted services.

Conservation Planning Department

  • No changes in Personnel Services were made.
  • No changes in Materials and Services were made.

WeedWise Department

  • No changes in Personnel Services were made.
  • No changes in Materials and Services were made.

Education and Outreach Department

  • No changes in Personnel Services were made.
  • No changes in Materials and Services were made.

Land Management Department

  • No changes in Personnel Services were made.
  • In Materials and Services, the cost of supplies was reduced and the cost for training and travel was increased by the same amount, resulting in no net change.

Not allocated to a department

  • No changes in Personnel Services were made.
  • No changes in Materials and Services were made.
  • No changes in Capital Outlay were made.
  • In Debt Service, the amount paid against debt for the Eagle Creek Community Forest property was increased to $550,000, reflecting the application of the entire US Forest Service Community Forest grant against the purchase of the Eagle Creek property. This action reduces the outstanding principal on this debt by more than one-third.
  • In Special Payments, we reduced Grants to Partners by 5.0% to $318,900.
  • In Interfund Transfers, we increased the transfer to the Conservation Grants Fund to $585,000.
  • The factor used to calculate the Unappropriated Ending Fund Balance was decreased from 42-percent of a year to 35-percent. At 35-percent, available funds extend from July 1, 2020 into November 2020 when the majority of tax revenue will be received.

The net result of these changes is an increase in total requirements for the “not allocated to a department” area from $2,445,853 to $2,746,033.

D – Changes in the Conservation Grants Fund

  • Resources increased by increasing the transfer of funds from the General Fund from $520,000 to $585,000.
  • Requirements decreased for Conservation Planning Department grants, cost-share, and contracted services from $248,879 to $214,000. This reflects a budgetary contraction to compensate for increased debt service costs.
  • The Unappropriated Ending Fund Balance was decreased to reflect the discretionary character of project expenditures beyond the 2019-2020 fiscal year.

The net result of these changes is a decrease in total requirements from $967,285 to $842,015.

E – Changes in the Conservation Loans Fund

  • No changes were made to resources or requirements in this fund.

F – Changes in the Working Lands Legacy Fund

  • The beginning fund balance increased from $142,495 to $669,849, reflecting most of the Community Forest grant proceeds coming into the Fund.
  • Requirements increased due to a transfer out of the Working Lands Legacy Fund of $550,000 into the General Fund, because debt service is paid out of the General Fund.

The net result of these changes was an increase in total requirements from $142,495 to $669,849.

G – Building Reserve Fund

  • The beginning fund balance increased from $2,517,547 to $2,595,547.
  • Capital outlay increased from $2,517,547 to $2,567,547, reflecting our belief that additional costs will be incurred to finish an office suite in the new Conservation Resource Center. We expect to lease that space to a partner agency at market rates.
  • The Unappropriated Ending Fund Balance increased from $0 to $28,000, reflecting our belief that additional landscaping costs will be incurred at the new Conservation Resource Center beyond the 2019-2020 fiscal year.

The net result of these changes is an increase in requirements from $2,525,547 to $2,603,547.
