<br /> M I NUT E S <br />e Eugene City Councll <br /> McNutt Room, City Hall <br /> July 10, 1984 <br /> 5:30 p.m. <br /> COUNCILORS PRESENT: Brian Obie, John Ball, Freeman Holmer, Emily Schue, Dick <br /> Hansen, Debra Ehrman, and Ruth Bascom (Councilor-elect). <br /> ABSENT: Mayor Keller, Cynthia Wooten, and Betty Smith. <br /> Revenue work session of the City Council of the City of Eugene, Oregon, was <br /> called to order by Councilor Obie in the absence of His Honor Mayor Gus Keller. <br /> I. CONTINUED DISCUSSION CONCERNING REVENUES (background material dis- <br /> tributed) <br /> City Manager Micheal Gleason introduced the agenda item. This meeting was <br /> called to review and discuss more data in order to make a decision on the <br /> capital budget, timing issues, and projects that can be done within the <br /> operating framework. <br /> Mr. Wong reviewed the exhibits as distributed. Exhibit A, High Priority <br />e Schedule, describes Capital Improvement Needs versus Available Resources, from <br /> FY86 through FY 95, for a total cumulative deficit of $30,395,000. This list <br /> does not include all the projects to be done within the next three years, <br /> Capital Improvement Program, but rather is a prioritized list of those most <br /> urgently required. The departments of Public Works, Parks and Recreation, and <br /> Facilities Development used that CIP as a basis to add the projects required <br /> to maintain existing assets. The revenues shown are from Federal Revenue <br /> Sharing funds. Exhibit B illustrates capital needs listed by department; <br /> Exhibit C lists departmental project descriptions. Exhibit Band C do not <br /> include "big ticket" items such as a new library, Public Safety, or City Hall <br /> buildings, which would be funded by bond issues. Exhibit 0 includes all <br /> capital projects. Exhibit E shows all capital requirements, funded by general <br /> obligation bonds. The Ferry Street bridge project is not included in any <br /> exhibit, as it would likely be funded from federal highway funds. <br /> Mr. Hansen wondered what the difference was between a capital project and <br /> operating project--or, how is it determined which budget street overlays and <br /> seals should be listed in. Mr. Wong said that any expenditure over $5,000 <br /> that will extend the useful life of an asset or modify the kinds of services <br /> provided is defined as a capital expense. The definition is not always an <br /> absolute one. <br /> Mr. Hansen questioned why relocation of a fire station in the Coburg road area <br /> appeared as a high-priority item when an existing station there was closed. <br />e <br /> MINUTES--Eugene City Council July 10, 1984 Page 1 <br /> . <br />
