ORDINANCE NO. 19-05-01. ANNUAL BUDGET AND APPROPRIATION ORDINANCE OF THE VILLAGE OF MAHOEMT, ILLINOIS:
Brown had distributed Budget Highlights. He walked the Board through the supporting packet and pointed updates that had been made since the last time the Board saw the document.
Metzger questioned the discrepancy between the two pages showing expenditures and revenues. Kouzmanoff explained the difference and why it looked off and stated one document included transfers and one did not.
Metzger was concerned that since this was a public document, it may be confusing to the public and asked if it would make sense if there was a carryover line item that would show and explain the difference.
Lynn agreed it was misleading.
Metzger stated another confusion is the Mahomet Music Festival, he stated none of the numbers match. Kouzmanoff stated in the Appropriate Ordinance 10% contingency was added to the final ordinance to allow room for emergencies and that this had been standard practice for years.
Widener suggested a footnote be added to show carry over to make it easier to understand. He stated if it could not be added this year, to make sure and include it next year.
Metzger stated he was concerned with having the information needed to explain it to someone if he was questioned about it.
Brown stated if it causes confusion, it could be taken out to eliminate the confusion and stated the Operating Budget was what the village operates under.
Johnson asked why the Village's income for Income Tax has gone down so much. Kouzmanoff explained that Governor Rauner had reduced distribution by 10%, then reinstated 5%, but that it was a still down. He noted that the Village was sent additional funds to be caught up on the payments owed, but the reduction of 5% was still in effect and to date this 5% reduction was being upheld by the Governor.
The Board thanked Brown and Kouzmanoff for all the work they put in considering the issues staff had obtaining numbers from the County.
