T/Stephenson Amends Budget At Special Meet
A 12 minute special meeting of the Stephenson Town Board was held Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 31, to amend the 2013 town budget as some accounts were over budget due to incorrect categorization. In the absence of Chairman Mike Kudick, the meeting was called to order by Supervisor Kevin Solway.
Also in attendance were Supervisors Rick Kikulski and Jeffrey Lieuwen, Clerk Elaine Olson and four other persons. Also absent was Supervisor Joe Banazak.
Solway stated he and Clerk Olson had worked on the bottom lines for a few hours. Some of the Transportation accounts, as well as the Capital Outlay account for blacktopping, are over budget due to some of the amounts not being categorized correctly. The Public Works director will be working with his billing agencies to get this corrected for the 2014 budgeting process.
Clerk Olson stated that the budget amendments would be as follows:
1) $75,323.02 will be transferred from the Parkway Depreciation Fund to the Transportation Departments.
2) $26,494.34 will be transferred from the Parkway Depreciation Fund to the Capital Outlay Accounts.
3) $91,884.64 which is unused monies in the General Government, Public Safety, Sanitation, Culture & Recreation Departments will be left in the general checking account.
Solway further stated that there was $145,855.60 left in the Road Fund of which $85,000 was left to do the second lift on Parkway Road in 2014.
Jerry Ronowski asked if the Public Works is getting prices for that blacktop and shouldering for next year. Solway stated that Kikulski has already been working on it. However, short of getting the bids, we cant tell just how much it is going to cost.
Fire Chief Jim Stradal asked how the figures compared to the October estimates. Solway stated they were very close, within a couple thousand dollars.
The Board then adopted the budget resolution 1-2013 per state chapter 65.90.
