SEAL BEACH BUDGET APPROVED
The Seal Beach City Council unanimously approved a balanced budget with a surplus for 2014-15.
The general fund includes operating expenses of $31.9 million and capital project expenditures of $3.2 million, according to a budget summary by City Manager Jill Ingram.
Planned projects include improvements to water, sewer, buildings, streets, landscaping and the pier, among others.
At two budget workshops, the Seal Beach City Council, directed staff to add $102,300 for community grant requests; $45,000 for pressure washing on Main Street during peak use times; $254,000 for personnel changes; and $80,000 for the Salon Meritage Memorial Project, among others.
The city’s second largest revenue source is the 11 percent Utility Users Tax, which yields $5.3 million and is annually reviewed. The UUT funds improvements to storm drains, sewers and the pier. Without it, the city could not pursue its aggressive capital improvements program and maintain services at current levels. In view of that, the council agreed to keep the current 11 percent rate.
