None. President Joan Roth closed public comment.
Dolin discussed the Tentative Budget and Appropriation Ordinance with the library auditor who recommended several adjustments to the ordinance to more closely reflect actual budgetary requirements in the General Fund/Corporate Fund and Special Tax Funds. Tax caps restrict the amount of tax that can be levied to less than what is budgeted and appropriated. Some of the budget lines exceed what we anticipate collecting, but are the amounts the library needs to operate. This also allows for unanticipated revenues, such as an endowment or other revenue.
