3. Presentation of 2003-2004 Budget


Dave Garnick, Senior Budget Analyst, reported as part of the earlier process, the Board closed out one of the two funds that exist in the district.  He said for next year all they have to do is the admin and construction fund.  He said the budget would go from $1,927,000 to $172,990 because all of the bond needs had been taken out.  He noted the proposed budget includes as much as $50,000 yet to be paid over the next few years.  He said the estimate for next year is $17,000.   He said there is a total revenue source of $172,990 and the materials and service payments are to cover the indirect cost.  He said $130,000 is what would be left to make a payment next year.  He said they set aside an operational contingency.  He said they would continue to budget a certain amount that would decrease over time that would allow the district to pay the charges.
