Modest fund-balance declines in recent fiscal years reflect continued general fund transfers for capital and other non-recurring expenditures. official siteManagement considers unassigned fund balance in excess of the city’s formal policy floor of 50-60 days of expenditures (15%) as available for non-recurring budget items. A $3 million net operating surplus strengthened unrestricted reserves in fiscal 2015, which totaled $27.3 million or 24.4% of spending at year-end. Projected fiscal 2016 results anticipate further, modest use of reserves (about $3 million or 2.5% of the year’s budgeted spending) for one-time spending priorities, slightly lower than budgeted with residual fund balance remaining in compliance with the city’s fund balance policy. Structurally balanced operations and similarly-sized use of reserves for pay-go capital spending once again characterize the approximately $122 million fiscal 2017 general operating budget. Fitch believes it is likely the city will improve upon initially budgeted projections as the fiscal year progresses given prior years’ fiscal performance.

Could you do something about it?” A job offer is an invitation to a potential employee, to become an employee with the organization. Perhaps we can talk about X, Y, and Z.” I guess. And unless your boss refuses to let you leave on good terms, that’s a promise you’ll want to keep, for the sake of your own career prospects. One of the major reasons people are dissatisfied with their salary increases is that the raise is less than expected and the boss doesn’t have room to increase it. If there are four things you want, mention them all at once, and let the employer know the relative importance of each one. The 8-Week Window To Your Next Job or Promotion Timing is a key factor in your job search as well. Ask for things like a matching contribution to your 401k, additional paid time off, or even a defined travel stipend.
