B.  PUBLIC HEARING/Proposed Lane County Metropolitan Wastewater Service District Budget for Fiscal Year 2001-2002.


Garnick noted the way the proposed budget was presented, page 1 and 2 were historical information.  He noted page 3 began the overview of the budget.  He explained there were two different funds for the Service District: the bond retirement fund, where principle and interest is paid for the bond; and the admin construction fund where they pay the miscellaneous expenses.  He added that is where they transfer the proceeds to Metro Wastewater.  He said they had $28,000 budgeted for admin construction.  He noted they are continuing to pay off the bonds and there are miscellaneous expenses.


Garnick noted on page 4, the admin and construction fund projected a balance of $29,000 plus interest earnings.  He said they were projecting to spend $7,952, of which indirect is $6,700 and $1,200 is miscellaneous.  He noted there would be an additional $13,000 that would be available over and above what was needed to transfer to Metro Wastewater.


Garnick discussed page 7.  He said the bond payments were $1 million in principle and $67,620 in interest.  He noted the total levy needed was $490,195.


Chair Meyer opened up the Public Hearing.  There being no one signed up to speak, he closed the Public Hearing.


MOTION: to approve the Budget and the levying of the taxes in the amount of  $490,000.
