Turlock City Council Agenda Includes Special Meeting to Work on Budgets

The City Council will be holding a special meeting starting at 5:45pm on Tuesday, May 8th at City Hall to accept a portion of the preliminary 2012-2013 Fiscal Year Non-General Fund Budget, and all General Fund Budgets.

This is the third in a series of four meetings to review the 2012-2013 Fiscal Year budgets. The focus of this meetings it the review and acceptance of the General Fund budgets and the final portion of the Non-General Fund budgets, including the various equipment and computer replacement funds and the self insurance funds.

The final budget will be adopted in whole on May 22, 2012.

The regularly scheduled City Council meeting will begin directly after the Special Meeting, starting at 7pm.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has awarded the City of Turlock and HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) Consortium federal funds to carry out activities that benefit low and moderate-income persons. The proposed Annual Action Plan provides the vehicle to obtain the federal funds for the proposed activities.

City staff will be recommending the City Council to approve the Annual Action Plan, sub-recipient and non-profit agreements. If the City Council chooses not to approve the proposed Annual Action Plan, the City of Turlock and the HOME Consortium will not receive funding for the 2012-2013 Fiscal Year.

The City of Turlock serves as the lead agency in the development of the Annual Action Plan for the City’s CDBG (Community Development Block Grant Program) as well as the Turlock/Stanislaus County HOME Consortium.

The Annual Action Plan is the annual update to the City’s Consolidated Plan. The Annual Action Plan outlines the resources anticipated to be available and specifies the activities proposed to be undertaken during the fiscal year, which covers the time period of July 1st through June 30th of each year. Resources and activities are selected specifically to address the priority needs outlined in the Strategic Plan.

The City attempts to address each affordable housing, homeless and non-housing priority need through the implementation of City services and programs and/or the formation of partnerships with other governmental jurisdictions and non-profit organizations.

City staff propose to continue the existing First Time Homebuyers Program, Housing Rehabilitation Program, funding for public service programs, affordable housing activities, public improvements, fair housing activities and staff time for the mobile home park rent subsidy program.

The City Council will also consider amending the city of Turlock Fiscal Year 2011/2012 General and Non-General Fund Budgets. Although the budgets were adopted on June 14, 2011, during the course of the fiscal year, unanticipated changes have made it necessary to recommend budget amendments, in order to ensure the most efficient use of resources and maximize the value within department budgets.

Also on the agenda is a motion to authorize City Manager Roy Wasden to sign an amended agreement between the City of Turlock and the Carnegie Arts Foundation to return $90,000 and all accrued interest on the $100,00 Performance Security to the Carnegie Foundation.

The City is recommended to retain $10,000 of the $100,000 as a security deposit for the Carnegie Center and pay the accrued annual interest to the Foundation by July 31 of each calendar year.

The Foundation opened and began operating the building in September of 2011 and has enjoyed success. Based on the months of successful operation, The Carnegie Arts Foundation has requested the return of their $100,000 performance deposit from the City, along with accrued interest.

The City Council meeting will begin at 7pm, directly after the special meeting, which will begin at 5:45pm. Both meetings will be held at City Hall, located at 156 S. Broadway Ave.

  • paul on In what different materials do women’s activewear comes? "You may get a variety of fabrics for the best activewear for women online, including cotton, spandex, synthetic, bamboo fiber, and Gore-Tex. Each of these materials has distinctive properties that set them apart. Since polyester is incredibly light and comfortable to wear, we advise you to utilize it. Athletic clothing frequently uses polyester as a fabric. Shirts for activewear, sweatpants and jogging jackets usually contain polyester blends. Polyester often dries quickly, making it the perfect fabric for intense workouts."
  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."
  • dans on Where can we find the best kratom capsules? "Hi, sir, I don't know which state you live in because many states in the U.S. have prohibited the sale of the best kratom capsules, but you can still find them online. Many online pharmaceutical stores provide the best kratom capsules at affordable prices. You can look for such online stores on Google or even social media. The store will deliver the best kratom capsule to your home without charging the delivery charges."
  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
  • paul on Why are customer reviews important during online shopping? "The most crucial component of every online store is its customer reviews. Reviews can assist other customers in determining whether or not the business and its items are worthwhile purchases. If you earn positive evaluations, your brand will gain an enormous reputation and rank better on Google. According to Google's recently modified algorithm, a business can increase its performance by obtaining reviews. This is the rationale behind inquiries about reviews on Google, Facebook, and other online clothing stores for women."
