Memo-01-08-2019-Item-9e

January 8, 2019

MEMO TO:        Mayor Barber and Board of Commissioners

FROM:             Randy Martin, Interim Town Manager

SUBJECT:       FY 2019-2020 Tentative Budget Calendar

Enclosed is a tentative budget development calendar for preparation of the FY 2019-2020 budget.  Finance Director Laura Rotchford prepared the draft consistent with prior year timelines and in compliance with applicable statutory requirements.  The only omission is a specific date for the February Board of Commissioners annual budget planning workshop. 

Staff and I have begun preparation of the documentation for this daytime meeting.  If at all possible, I would like to finalize this date at Tuesday’s Board meeting or as soon as possible thereafter. 

After discussion, I recommend the Council adopt the schedule with any desired revisions.  Note that the first opportunity for early public input on the budget would be at the February regular meeting.
