(Larry Werner)  Late Material - Presentation

Staff Summary: On Monday, October 28, 2013, a group of business owners attended a meeting at Carson Lanes hosted by Gene Burger to discuss ideas, plans, and issues related to elements of a successful revitalization of the South Carson Street (Central & South) business district. Based on comments received at this meeting, Mr. Burger has developed a written plan. This plan contains many ideas for business district enhancements, infrastructure improvements, and beautification. 

B) For Possible Action: Discussion and possible action to establish individual Supervisor's and the Mayor's discretionary annual budget sub-allocation at a percentage as determined by the Board to provide an equal opportunity to individual elective office incidental business expense resource while maintaining sufficient overall funding for the general operations expense of the Board as a budget unit. (Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: The Board of Supervisors establishes an overall budget for the operation of the Board. Currently the budget only shows the total overall amount of funding for salaries, benefits, professional services, training, publicity, special legislative expenses, memberships, travel, operating supplies, office supplies, telephone and special charges by the State Ethics Commission. In the past, the supervisors have not incurred individual expenses of a major nature and the budgeted amounts have been satisfactory to meet the needs. An unanticipated increase in individual expenses indicates a possible need for a budgeting policy change to ensure the ability to pay for overall general Board expenses. This action recognizes the additional ceremonial requirements of the Mayor's office and the associated additional expenses.
