July 19, 2009 by Barbara

HITTING THE JACKPOT VICE MAYOR/DEPUTY CHIEF MCINTEE? …. WITH THE VFD YOU ARE!

Unnamed

(Notice the VFD shirt)…Thanks Reader…

THIS WEEK….. IT’S A LADDER TRUCK!….

WORDS OUT THAT TWO VFD CAPTAINS WENT TO WASHINGTON AND PICKED UP THE USED 100 FOOT LADDER TRUCK FOUND ON THE INTERNET!

DEPUTY CHIEF MCINTEE PAGED HIS “TROOPS” THIS AFTERNOON TO COME FOR A DRILL ON IT TONIGHT AT 7:30 PM!…..

So why is it that we are going to pay $130 again this year for our fire assessment fees?….To keep Jerry buying more and more?….

In the budget it says it is for 82 firefighters….we know that for months now the number is really around 60 if that!

Other towns such as Davie and Pompano beach will pay fire assessments fees of $104 & $108 respectively for professional departments!…

Next year the 4% increase will be $877,783.00….for just the VFD contract portion…the total fire budget is $1,025,776.00…

“ACHIEVEMENTS”….page 66 2009/2010 Budget

“Increased skills and competency of firefighters and WATER RESCUE PERSONNEL. REVISION OF DEPARTMENTS MANAGEMENT STRUCTURE AND OPERATING PROCEDURES. ISO rating of 4 measured within a 5 month assessment period. PURCHASED TWO FULLY EQUIPPED FIRST LINE TRUCKS, (The Town purchased 1 and the VFD said they purchased the 2nd one…who purchased the new ladder truck ?) JET SKI AND A FIRE BOAT TO PATROL THE INTERCOASTAL WATERWAYS. (The jet ski was NOT of any use per the presentation, per the Dep. Chief’s statement …for the potential drownings a few months back, and still no proper certified trainers to train the members/ the fire boat is not a fire boat…it has no pumper… according to those who live on the intercoastal it is a fun boat for cruising and such by McIntee and his favorites) With the town, installed safety numbered beach poles with life rings attached. Established a station watch program resulting in improved staffing of the station and response times.”

CALLING FOR AN INTERVENTION!….

Here’s The Scoop….6/9/09 LBTS Budget Workshop ….Fire/Millage/Capital Improvements…

June 13, 2009 by Barbara

ROUND AND ROUND SHE GOES….

Dear Readers …Once again we began another Budget Workshop season in LBTS…All too familiar were the assertions of being financially stable…”in the black”…Kudos to the sole holder of the checks and balances…the Town Manager…and the all too familiar “jargon” used to skirt the questions…sidestep the point…..and leave us where we were in prior years…with too high a millage rate…too much in the emergency fund..still holding debt…hard to decipher fund transfers…unencumbered balances……….and a fire assessment that should be lowered still…….ARGHHHH…..

We hear the Manager talk once again about reductions  in “total” staff…HUH?…We heard this last year as well…as previously posted…the staff numbers are as confusing as the budget numbers…a look at last years position count …page 14 of the budget available on the Town website……http://www.lauderdalebythesea-fl.gov/town/finance-doc.htm …….shows that in we held steady…..as in the past for Administrative…2004-5..10/2005-6…10./2006-7…9/…2008…8/2008-9…8.5/Public Info Officer…2004-5…0/2005-6….0/2006-7…0/2007-8…1/2008-9…1 Public Works 2004-5…17.5/ 2005-6…17.5/2006-7…11/2007-8…..9/2008-9…8 /Development Services…2004-5….6/2005-6…..6/ 2006-7….6/ 2007-8…6/2008-9…4.75/Parking Enforcement….2004-5…..4/2005-6…3/ 2006-7….3/ 2007-8…2/ 2008-9…2/

The Workshop….

FIRE ASSESSMENT….

The Town Manager went over the presentation that Burton and Assoc. made (previous posts)…the recommendations made…and her recommendation which was for keeping the same $130 annual fire assessment fee which would hold steady for both 2009-10 & 2010-11…Comm. Dodd inquired about how much it would drop with less VFD medical calls…but the Town Manager played coy and said the VFD has a contract with a 4% annual increase…adding they [VFD] are a private corporation…(meaning we the Town have no control over their budget…remember this if and when the VM/Dep Chief puts the VFD Referendum item back on!)…Comm. Dodd then made the point that the VFD and other contractors should be asked to forgo the 4-5% annual increase…

BC- Readers may recall the Commission did not take their increase last year…. In the new 6/11/09 was the following…

‘HOLLYWOOD – For the second year in a row, Hollywood city commissioners on Thursday showered City Manager Cameron Benson with praise and high-fives during his annual evaluation.

But by his choice, he won’t be getting the 4 percent annual raise his contract calls for.

“Given what we have in the budget, and in the economy, I think I can stay status quo,” said Benson, whose his city is looking at a potential $17.9 million deficit and massive layoffs later this year.

It is the second year in a row he declined a raise in his $201,115 salary.

Benson is Broward’s seventh highest paid city manager, and ranks behind counterparts in some smaller cities, including Hallandale Beach and Tamarac.’

BC- The contractors/ Commission/ Administration  should  be asked and the VFD especially should forgo an increase!

Commissioner Dodd also asked about the Pension Actuary & Auditor at approx. $14,000 annually…again the Town Manager did a “song and dance” …and rather than explain specifics  she explained the difference of the jobs…that 3 reports were required…What she did not say was it is a minimal amt. of time…out of line with the cost!…Comm. Dodd also asked about the VFD Beach Patrol and if that constituted as EMS rather than fire…and if it represents a possible problem for being a part of the fire assessment…The Town Atty. said she had not been asked to look into this…The Town Manager admonished the Comm. [Dodd] for not asking Burton and Assoc. ahead of this 1st Budget meeting!…Comm. Silvrstone said the VFD does “basic services” as first responders…therefore no problem…(no direction given to check with Burton and Assoc.)…ARGHHH…

The Vice Mayor spoke of the pension plan and said it was paid for with insurance and nobody in the VFD receives any money for the pension ..(Guess he thought people might think his BFF Pension planner Jimmy-boy might be the one getting paid)…He added the taxpayers pay nothing…BUT the Town Manager interjected and informed him if the plan was “unsound” then the taxpayers will make up the difference…OOPS!

BC- we have heard there was a problem with the VFD last year and possibly there were penalties….which angered the TM and therefor we now have a pension actuary and auditor to the tune of $14,000………HMMM……

Comm. Silverstone blamed the BSO for illegally removing $14,000…and that the VFD paid for it…

The Commissioners were not allowed to vote…due to this being a workshop…but were allowed to say their choice…Comm. Dood was for #2 (stick with the $130)/ VM chose to pass temporarily (HUH?)/ Comm. Clottey – #2/ Mayor-#2/ Vice Mayor carefully chose his words…”I agree with that.”…( juggling with a possible conflict of interest?)…HMMM…

THE MILLAGE……

The Manager said the assessed property values went down almost 9%…She went on to talk of doing El Mar (see above… Oriana million…for south of Commercial only/ the Coral Reef (Fish Habitat Restoration Project…a 2 year project…no grant……see above)/A1A scenic Highway…(FY 2009-10 58,000 for the drawings…and approx. $600,000 to match funds…) and  maintaining the current millage 3.99o…She spoke of the Terra Mar Bridge and the Bus Shelter being moved to 2010-11 (see above)…and transferring $1.2 million from the General Fund (see above…th $1 million is from Oriana after coming out of a Cherof held escrow account in April)…into the Capital Imp. Fund…The Majority on the dais fell all over themselves to say how keeping a 3.990 millage was really something…and although we might not all see a decrease due to what may come from the county portion…aren’t we lucky…VM McIntee and BFF Silverstone gave high-fives to the Manger..who gave her customary…lines (see above)…..reduction in staff positions…and hours…and the VFD…and holding back on Capital Improvements…(2 million on a Public Safety Complex…is holding back?)….Comm. Dodd again asked for some specifics on the year end projections in the General Fund…The Town Manager had none…Comm. Dodd asked about the El mar underground wiring…saying the Oriana million is for beautification…Comm. Silverstone interjected it was 2 separate items…which later proved incorrect…although at first the TM said it did not say for what…she had to admit the 1 million was from Oriana…the “underground wiring” was a mistake…it was only for beautification…OOPS! (on the south end only!)…Comm. Clottey once again proved she doesn’t think before she speaks…she reiterated the Mayor of some residents seeing an increase even with the same 3.990 millage but she added that it was for those who are homesteaded so it really wasn’rt a large number of people…HUH?…OUCH!….

The Vice Mayor…perhaps setting the stage to remove the BSO police tried to put Comm. Dodd on the spot asking if they too should forgo their 5.3% increase…Comm. Dodd replied that all should be asked…Quite interesting ….later in the evening Comm. Clottey feigned ignorance in the removal of the BSO police…coming from her or the dais…(We hear Marc Furth …her mentor is credited with making these statements…along with her other Gang-pals)…OOPS!…

The Manager informed and was unfortunately fully backed by the Commission to take the all too familiar tact of keeping the higher millage of 4.795…”because it can always be lowered”…but cannot be raised…But this writer would have liked to have seen a “maverick” in the bunch call for a3.990…and then go for even lowered…cutting back on the bloated emergency fund …and the unencumbered $…among other funds not fully divulged…

Capital Improvements were contained within the Millage discussion…

Here’s The Scoop…5/26/09 LBTS Commission Meeting…#7…To Keep The Debt Or Not Keep The Debt…. That Is The Question……

June 1, 2009 by Barbara

HOW BIG A SLICE OF THE PIE?……….

Dear Readers…Agenda item 6 a…The Finance Report brought forward some interesting dialogue and some interesting facts …along with a big slice of confusion over whether or not to pay off part or all of the 8 million dollar debt the Town currently has…

Comm. Dodd- “I see on page 27 we have a projected debt service of $1.589 million this year and at the same time you have been telling us we are in the black and could pay off our debts. Where in the revenue part of the accounts are the figures that show our interest made on the money in hand that could be used to pay off the debt of 8 million.  Since I’m not an accountant I would logically expect somewhere in these accounts a revenue of at least $1.58 million if we are in the black and could pay off our debts if we wanted to. I asked at a previous meeting whether you have enough money in the accounts to pay off our debt and I was assured that you have.  We as a commission are responsible to the tax payers and should not be carrying an 8 million debt even if you feel you have an extremely good interest rate and extremely low repayment of the loan. We are not in the banking business.  Other municipalities went bankrupt because they thought the same thing. I would like to see a proposal as to how we should move forwards towards being “debt free”, which accounts have the surplus 8 million in order to pay off the current debt.  Personally I believe we should only take out a loan when we have a capital improvement project that can be justified to the residents and the money should only be used for that purpose.   I would like to publicly ask  that the Town Manager prepares a short financial report showing how she can turn the handle and pay off all the loans since we are “In the black”

BC- The Vice Mayor ever the “protector” of the Town Manager called for a point of order to head off Comm. Dodd getting a  response from the Town Manager by asking if Comm. Dodd gave her 24 hours saying this was “a lot of questions to ask the Town Manager with no preparation” saying ” it’s not fair”…Comm. Dodd asked the VM if this was going to be like the 24 hours required to ask questions of the VFD Chief? (a requirement that was finally dropped after it was pointed out that only Comm. Dodd was following the requirement)…

Town Manager Colon- ” Commissioner Dodd, Commissioner Dodd first of all if you recall we had a undesignated fund balances on the books at the end of 9/30/08. I believe approximately 8 million dollars. As you also recall all the loan proceeds for Capiital Improvements have been spent on all projects in the intracoastal in the north part of town. If you’re asking me if we can repay this Capital Fund debt down today with the funds we have on hand yes we can. Is it a prudent thing to do at this time? No it’s not! Present cash values on interest rates are lower than the rates that we obtained our loans. That if you and the consensus of this Commission is the desire to pay off this Capital Fund debt we have the funds to do that”

Comm. Dodd- said he was really asking about if we have a better rate “So what you’re trying to tell me we’re making a marginal profit on the fact that the value of the loan we took out ?”

Town Manager- ” I did not say that , I did not say that. What I said was the curent prevailing rates if you use the present value calculation of the money that’s out there today to get loans,  promissory notes it is a lower interest rate today than it was when we obtained the promissory notes. You asked me where is the interest on the loan proceeds and I am replying there is no interest as the loan proceeds have been used in the Capital Improvement projects in the north beach area. In other words if we borrow 10 million dollars and we spent 10 million dollars on Capital Improvements can you explain to me how I’m supposed to draw interest when the cash is not in the bank? We did Capital Improvement projects. What I am telling you that if you want to pay off your current debt for Capital Improvement the Town may do so because we have other funds available in their fund balance accounts which are designated as indicated in your 9/30/08 audit report.”

Comm. Dodd- said he thought we should pay down the 8 million debt and shouldn’t be playing one balance against another….

Town Manager- ” Well, I would disagree with you, that I think at this time the Town doesn’t have many funds available for Capital Improvement funds.I believe 3 about 3 years ago  went out, we renegotiated our debt issue. We obtained additional funds for Capital Improvement projects and the rates we obtained were lower than the original rates on the books at that time. Currently the rates are less than 2%. So if this Town want s to continue to do Capital Improvement projects, if you can renegotiate a debt issue at that amount or less which is less than our prevailing rates we could probably bring in more funds and continue Capital Improvement projects or infrastructure improvements and negotiate if we can a payment equal to our principal interest that we’re currently paying. You might want to pay off debt. We can pay off debt, but you also have to remember what your present value calculation is. They’re not gonna let you hypothetically on a mortgage wher you owe 10% and get  a 5% that’s not how our economy  works in this country.”

Comm. Dodd thanked her…and the Vice Mayor chimed in to say if he (Dodd) felt “strongly about it to make a motion on the 8 million”…(The hall erupted in laughter)..Comm. Dodd made a motion “to reduce the debt as fast as we can”…asking if he had “a 2nd or if his fellow Commissioners wanted to carry on in debt?.”…

The Mayor said there was a motion made by Dodd and Comm. Dodd said it died for lack of a 2nd…The VM again chimed in to say “The Mayor runs the meetings.”….(The hall erupted in laughter)…

Comm. Silverstone- “I think there during this whole discussion there we got lost in the original question of , are you on page 28 Commissioner Dodd? Are you looking at the fund balance of 1.7 (million) negative? Comm. Dodd replied he was on pg 27…looking at the debt service payment of 1.58 million…Some confusion on the pages…with Silverstone saying that was not on his pg. 27..it was on his pg. 26 and Comm. Dodd jokingly asked Silverstone if his computer was faster ..Silverstone replied “My computer’s not but the rest of me is! …He laughed and said “sorry”

BC- Many people have been commenting about Silverstone’s growing sarcasm, mean spirited comments and bitter behavior on the dais…

Comm. Silverstone- ” The um, the issue here, ah, I think what the Town Manager’s looking for and I’ll ax (ask) that question again. Town manager do we have enough cash in the bank right now to pay off all our debts?..(The TM said “yes”)….”Okay, If we do that and I talked to the Town Manager earlier today we had a discussion about this and I was actually gonna make a motion to start paying down the debt. Until I found out that as she explained the current interest rate is higher or is lower than the rate that we got , the original loan on. So by paying it back we’re actually going to be penalized on it. Doesn’t make a lot of sense to pay it off in my opinion. But if somebody wants to place a motion out here, I’m not going to 2nd it, I’m not going to vote for it. I think it’s a bad, it’s, it’s not ah, the right thing to do here. But, um just so everybody knows out there if you look at the budget report this year and the budget report for the same time last year the revenues coming in um, last year was 72.7% of what we expected to come in. This year it’s 79.2% so we’re actually ahead of it then we were last year. So we have more, greater amount of revenues coming into the General Fund than we did last year and roughly 10,8-10 million of that is um, advalorem ah, taxes in there which is 90% of our, of our budget of our revenues coming in. Um, expenses ,you have revenues , you have expenses an expense side. We had 81.3% of the budget spent this year to date same timef rame we have 79.2%. So we’re spending less money than we did last year. So again, I, I don’t know how to make it anymore clearer. I know I’ve been accused and personally attacked up here that I don’t know anything about accounting but I’ve done everything I can to explain it. And we had a CPA up here before explaining it and basically he said the same thing. Ah, the revenues that were projected are coming in, the expenses going out are within budget. We have enough money to pay off all the debt right now. I can’t, our economic situation is probably stronger than most towns in Broward County at this time ans most towns probably in America because of what’s going on out there. So I think the situation we are in and I don’t know how to explain it anymore simpler tha that, and I yield.”…

BC- Thanks to Comm. Dodd for bringing this to the dais…

Why did the Town Manager not act proactively about renegotiating the debt loan?…

Are the increased funds going into the General Funds really “transfers” from other funds?…

Why was it correct to move 1.3 million dollars from the proprietary fund…taking assessed sewer funds and depositing them in the General Fund?…The same was done with parking funds….

We have 674 thousand dollars in the Capital Improvement Fund at the present time…and with the 1.3 million sewer assessment funds…why not put it back in the sewer fund for town wide sewer infrastructure?…

What Capital Improvements are we in need of in the next year? We hear there is talk of building a VFD fire garage where the trailer is after its removal from next to the Public Safety Complex…any truth to this?…

Are we facing a penalty for early repayment?…(We never did find out if there was a penalty paid for early removal of funds from the state insurance pools)…

Why did no one follow through about a line of credit?…

As we face the budget workshops more questions should be asked and more creative proactive ideas should be coming from the administration…
