3 proposed new FTE's. A loss of over $200,000 in annual revenue from Fairview/Wood Village's decision to do their own building inspections instead of contracting with Troutdale. The usual increases in wages and benefits, but surprisingly, a stable PERS rate. A long, long list of proposed capital projects- millions of dollars worth.
I received the City of Troutdale proposed 2008-09 budget over the weekend. The budget committee meetings begin next week. After a first glance at the proposed budget, nothing really jumped out at me except the loss of building permit revenue. Although we've known about this for quite some time, that's still a lot of money to take out of our general fund budget.
More to come. . .
