The Centerville City Council at tonight’s regular meeting will hold a public hearing amending the fiscal year 2013 budget, which ends June 30.
The budget amendment calls for an additional $3.5 million in total revenues and other sources and an additional $3.4 million in total expenditures and transfers out. The amended budget adds $73,870 to the coffers.
In other action, the council has five resolutions to decide, two resignations to consider, three requests to think about, a presentation on the Safe Routes to School project and a representative from Ruan Securities will present analysis on refinancing 2003 general obligation bonds.
Jason Raskie from the Water Department and Marcia Meller from the Drake Public Library Board of Directors.
Peggy Johnson and Justine Heffron with the YMCA and Nancy Huisman and Lottie Wilson representing city parks and pool are expected to ask for a portion of the more than $110,000 in unused Appanoose County Railroad Local Option Sales and Service Tax funds being returned to the city.
The YMCA request is for $20,000 to replace the building’s boiler, air handling unit and control systems. The request letter states the building was constructed in 1987 “and most of the internal systems have never been replaced and have passed the end of their useful lives.”
The YMCA estimates the cost of capital improvements at $80,000. The reserve fund for capital improvements currently has $23,000 in it.
The third request is from the Historic Preservation Corporation to hold the Children’s Art Festival on the Courthouse lawn June 29 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. This will make the festival’s eighth year.
