DEVELOPMENT SERVICES FINANCING STUDY <br /> Tony Mounts, Finance Director, reviewed this item. He said that in July <br /> 1989, the council established the Committee on Development Services. The <br /> charge of this committee was to review each of the development services <br /> provided in the General Fund and to prepare a recommendation on the <br /> appropriate level of fee support versus general tax support for each of the <br /> e services. Committee recommendations were based on a review of service <br /> descriptions, review of full cost information, and review of existing and <br /> potential revenue sources. <br /> Mr. Mounts said that the committee recommends that general tax support for <br /> development services be reduced by up to $2.4 million over a five-year <br /> period. The committee also recommends that the Council Committee on <br /> Development Services be disbanded and that staff make periodic progress <br /> reports to the full council over the next five years to provide updates on <br /> progress towards these goals. <br /> Mr. Mounts said that staff analyzed each service to develop an estimate of <br /> the full costs based on the FY90 budget and reviewed all revenue sources to <br /> determine the level of fee support. The services were divided into <br /> categories according to the individual or group which benefits from the <br /> provision of the service. The major categories included in the study were <br /> direct customer services, general business services, and general public <br /> services. The committee recommended the following reductions in general tax <br /> support over a five-year period: <br /> *Direct Customer Services $2,330,000 <br /> *General Business Services 20,000 <br /> *General Public Services 93,000 <br /> In summary, Mr. Mounts said that if the committee recommendations were <br /> e adopted, the General Fund support could be reduced by up to $2,443,000 in <br /> FY90 dollars. <br /> MINUTES--Eugene City Council September 24, 1990 Page 1 <br />
