  15. Proposed Budget 2014 Operating Budget -- $66,004,852 • Financial planning based on revenue and expense forecasting • Presenting a balanced budget without use of local cumulative fund • No plans for major service changes or fare increases • Operating efficiently by reducing overtime, lowering health care costs, addressing bus replacement and leveraging grants • Still face replacement challenges by supplementing operating budget with federal dollars

  16. Operating Revenue 2014 Operating Budget • $66,004,852 (1.3% increase or $834,208 over 2013)

  17. Operating Assumptions Revenue assumptions • Local funds calculated factoring in $4.5M less revenue due to property tax caps • Approx. $185,000 increase in state funds • Approx. $1.6M increase in federal funds (MAP-21) • Projecting 13% more income in fare revenue in line with expanding ridership and service levels

  18. Operating Assumptions Expenditure Assumptions • 1.3% increase or $834,208 over 2013 • Employee health care costs -- 8% budgeted increase • Fuel is budgeted at $3.17 • 3.25% wage increase

  19. Capital Budget Capital Projects • $44,557,341 (total budget) • Most projects 80% federally funded; 20% local match (cumulative fund) • Federal funds – formula and competitive grants • Projects include: replacement and new vehicles for both fleets; the new Downtown Transit Center; facility upgrades; transit amenities; security equipment; IT systems including real time passenger information

  20. Capital Cumulative Funds • Funded by a portion of property tax revenue [$.01/$100 av] plus miscellaneous local • $3.5 million projected income in 2014 • Funds are used to match formula and competitive grants • Accumulation annually, but funds are obligated by project • Competitive grant eligibility relies on robust capital cumulative fund
