8:39 am
i'm here this afternoon with the first of 3 presentations regarding the departments budget for fiscal years 2014, 15 and 15, 16. in the interest of time i'll try to stick to the highlight of the presentation here today. so starting with the two year's budget outlook from the budget instructions they provided to the department. i want to take a moment to say the numbers on the slide are a little bit different than those in the packet. i have better information now. so the mayor's office is currently promising a $170 million deficit and a one
8:40 am
hundred 18 point plus deficit. i want to point out that the size of the quest the mayor's office has projected is slinking. i think that's a item number testament to the economic groektd growth that san francisco is enjoying but it's a result of the discipline of a two year process that has instilled amongst those of us who do budget for a living. it's really good news. last year the mayor's office thought would he do is a deficit of 2 hundred and 63 million dollars. we're silencing the size of those deficits going forward. of course, the deficit they're projecting for the next two fiscal years has to be zero by the time the mayor submits his
8:41 am
budget to the board of supervisors on may 1st. as usual the mayor's office is asking departments to reduce their general fond. they've asked us to reduce it by neeshgsz one percent which is worth 6 hundred about a little over $600,000.01 and a half percent for the psyching year. the second year we have to cover negotiation and the year after so that's a reduction of $1 million. we also have to cover some revenue kreksdz in neeshgdz budget and the 6 hundred and 5 thousand dollars is $400,000 for the garage. this is a project we're getting from the transportation agency
8:42 am
who manages the garbage for us. it's based on business as well as last year's actuals. and then the remaining $200,000 or so is a incision of the in addition gak fact that the strawberry festival is going on. we've received some information on the golf carts a slight reduction from the golden gate tense courts. we have to cover our non-salary cost increases. this is the number that you see here are an assessment but the cost increases are assuming the increases in the work orders we
8:43 am
pay other departments so for light heat and power city attorney i'm assuming generally a 10 percent increase for our work orders for next year and the year after. i'm hopefully that very much this the conservative estimate and it it will be less than what i'm projecting. i'll know more in three or four weeks so by that february 20th comes around i'm hoping they'll be smaller. loosely in terms of costs we have to cover in the next two years. in fiscal year 2016 we'll have to replace some funding for maintenance that are currently for stadium maintenance funding this funding is going away as the stadium is going to be torn
8:44 am
down. this will be an additional fund cost of $396,000. the mayor's office has asked us to give them an one percent proposal on parcel only with the budget that we submit on february the 20th. i'll be updating those numbers as we move through the next three weeks or so. a familiar slide the budget balancing fingers that the staff putting together with the community and all of our stakeholders four years ago now. i still think they're a really nice set of guidelines ignore trade off decisions as we prepare our budget. the budget in the current fiscal year to give us a context for
8:45 am
the decisions is a $160.9 million. of that $138 million is our operating budget with $23.2 million for the cool in the current year. i'm sure you're aware of we have 3 primary source of our budget we have the open space fund and 36 percent by the general fund and savings we generate on an annual base and 37 percent of our fund come from revenue we get ourselves. open space and the general fund together account for $108 million. open space continues to grow, property tax continues to do
8:46 am
nicely in the city and so open space is really a vital source of funding. of course, we receive an annual general fund subsidy and we're allowed to keep our general fund savings that we accrue like the police department and we have general fund money left over it goes back to the general fund. we are allowed to revisit them for equipment or capital. earned revenue as you all know we really benefit from all the property and resources that we manage in the current fiscal year our annual reviewing revenue is for parking garages
8:47 am
and the lake and tea garden and many other facilities. i want to point out one particular category which is program fees for $4. million plus. we're going to generate more than that. we are going to do better than budget and that figure is not necessary of about $8,900 in scholarships we gave away last year and will give away this year. this is for other agencies to provide services as well as gift and requests. so this is just a slide that indicates how our earned revenue has grown. in the last 10 years we've increased our revenue by 19 and
8:48 am
a half million dollar. it's interesting it's happened in every single category of our revenue we have placing the marine a and golf and it comes if outside land and increased thoracic field permits and from increased recreation programming and really the bulk of the growth is from increased uncle not from increased fees. we use our resources primarily to the single biggest resource for park maintenance. 50 percent of our operating budget is allocated toward park maintenance. a quarter of our budget is for recreation and 12 percent for structural maintenance and maintaining our parks and facilities and 7 percent for
8:49 am
administration which is all my staff personnel and accounting the general manager and property management etc., and 3 percent for park patrol and other programs. of course, the single largest thing that we spend money on is people and salaries at the 61 percent. we spend a lot of money on services of other department and city attorney and repairs for our vehicles. we spend a lot of money on utility like water and power and sewer and telephone services. we spend 6 percent of our budget on supplies and commit. 5 percent on debt certifies and this is increasing in the fiscal year the two are open space
8:50 am
revenue bonds and we're feeling the debt service from the west harbor of the loan. we spend four percent of our budget open services, garbage pickup and 3 percent respectfully on our management zoology society and for operations and then one percent for citywide overhead and facility maintenance projects. so this is actually, the slide i really wanted to focus on this this afternoon. i'm sure you're aware of for many of the years the department has been in a defensive posture.
8:51 am
we want to protect services among many million dollars of budget you cuts and finally, with the its improving economy we can look forward and make decisions where we might want to make some investment in the department over the next 2 years. so in light of that opportunity the general manager and staff has spent time to identify some could he strategic priorities for the department to make some budget environment. those priorities toy directly to our strategic goals and they are to enhance public safety, to advanced environmental sustainability, to support alive living and strengthen administer support. so we see preventing have anism and also fixing all the vanism
8:52 am
that happens in our parks the broken window to her if you have a broken window other windows get broken but if you take care of it it defers. we need to both address immediate public safety concerns from hazard trees but also plan for the replacement of the trees canopy. we're looking was it would look like to focus resources on sustainable management of our parks and open spaces. we think that active living go should be focused on actually recreation choices and meeting what is an obesity academic and we'll fund programs to get
8:53 am
children and adults outside and moving around. we want to focus on building administrator sport. first in refresh your memory and hiring and this is really to respond to the additional complexity that we created when we pledged the departments recreational model where we created an enormous recognize staff open on ongoing basis, and, secondly, in technology we want to improve and innovate the hardware and software program that enhances users experience in our park programs. i'm interested in the next 4
8:54 am
minutes on the commissions thoughts around those strategic priorities and we absolutely welcome our feedback whether it's this afternoon or over the next 4 weeks or so on what you think about those strategic priorities as we start to make some budget allocations. so as we did last year, we plan to use revenue to balance our budget. we're looking at leases and scone sessions in golden gate park and the towers for additional revenue we are going looking at looking at the xaend expanding new leases con section. i think the parking garages are going to generate additional revenue and we'll continue to earn more revenue from special events and our facilities.
8:55 am
i think we'll see continued growth in our recreational programming. as we move through the budget process we will, of course, be out there talking to folks to our staff and stakeholders to the community, labor and to the cities policymakers. we actually have two of our community budgetometers scheduled the first one is next monday at the applying log rejecting center so on monday the 27 and our second is monday february 3rd at the clubhouse from 5 to 7:30. i'm going to be at pro-sack with my presentation and be back to the operations committee on
8:56 am
february 6th with an update and we're consider our plan to the mayor on february 21st and, of course, the mayor will submit his budget on june 1st to the full board. two minutes to spare >> not bad. i for one congratulate you on fiscally on sustainability and alive you living those are residing a waiver that happens to be in the tied as it were now and it's our responsibility to do that so i encourage that. i don't see any other comments from my fellow commissioners >> do we have any public comment on this item. any public comment on this item? >> good judgment public comment

8:59 am
