Preliminary 2020 Budget Workshop regarding the General Fund (Fund 100) and the Garbage and Recycling Fund (Fund 215)

Appearances:  Village Manager Mark Fitzgerald, Assistant Village Manager/DPW Director Arlyn Johnson, Finance Director Jason Kaczmarek, and Assistant Finance Director Julie Multhauf

Village Manager Fitzgerald presented a PowerPoint that explained the general fund and garbage and recycling fund (215).  He noted the following:
  • Tax Incremental District #4 and #5 are terminated, half of the value of the tax incremental districts can be used in the 2019 levy limit calculation.  $575,000 of new revenue will be generated by the termination of the two tax incremental districts.
  • The Village Board approved a new 7 year garbage and recycling contract with Waste Management.  A proposed change to how garbage and recycling is funded was discussed.  The proposal is to collect the full cost of garbage and recycling through a special charge to village residents receiving the service beginning with budget year 2020.
  • The change in personnel costs and expenditures were outlined in slide 2 of the presentation. 
  • Slides 3 and 4 represented the levy limits imposed by the State of Wisconsin and the historical deficits for the garbage and recycling fund.  The 2019 deficit was $775,000.  The proposed special charge would end the deficits that occur and increase annually.
  • The special charge for garbage and recycling would increase from $100.12, in place since 2012, to $154.68.   During the 7 years of the contract with Waste Management, a special charge covering the full costs of garbage and recycling would be the best option to continue to provide service and would make good financial sense for the village and financial circumstances.  It would end the historical deficits in fund 215.

Village Manager Fitzgerald asked the village trustees for a consensus regarding the change to the special charge for garbage and recycling.  There was general consensus among the village trustees to eliminate the historical deficits in the garbage and recycling fund (215), by increasing the amount of the special charge. Approval of the special charge will be on the next village board agenda for consideration.
