Resolution to Approve Fiscal Year 2019 Fee Adjustments for Public Services Area - Engineering and Public Works
Mayor and Council, attached for your consideration and approval is the resolution approving fee adjustments for Public Services Areas -Engineering and Public Works Units for the 2019 fiscal year. The anticipated increase in revenue resulting from the fee adjustments is important to balancing expenditures and revenues in the proposed fiscal year 2019 budget.

Each year in conjunction with the preparation of the budget, Service Area/Service Units are requested to review license and fee revenues to determine if the cost of the services rendered are covered by the charges. When determining these costs, Service Units take into account increases or decreases in expenses such as: labor, material and supplies, equipment, and overhead cost. The increases are generally in the range of 1% to 5% and are for purposes of full cost recovery. In some cases where fees are proposed to be higher than the nominal, explanations are provided to give a rational for the increase. Decreases are in the range of 3.4%-74.8% and vary more widely due to efficiency improvements, and equipment pricing fluctuations.

The Public Services Area is recommending approval of increases for activities in the Engineering and Public Works Units in order to recover fully burdened costs for ancillary services provided to the customers. These fully burdened costs were based upon estimated time spent providing the service, vehicle expenses, IT costs, materials & supplies, and the municipal service charge.
