16/17 Budget Briefing from the CEO
We are currently in a state of financial normalcy. Our staffing will remain flat with no layoffs and no expansion. Staffing will only be effected by state income streams. The general fund gap is much lower than during the recession.
Revenues have stabilized. Sales tax is still growing slowly. Property taxes are maintaining their historical average. The State budget remains stable and the receipt of one time revenues from the State have boosted fund balance. These one-time revenues will allow us to do three things: grow fund balance in anticipation of the next recession, pay down a safety pension liability therefore reducing unfunded liability, and begin the first steps for building a new corporation yard.
Threats and challenges remain. PERS liabilities and costs will continue to rise for years. The volatility in stock and oil markets may impact the recorvery. The economy is beginning the 7th year of a sluggish recovery. The following year may be the last normal year before recession.
