ITEM 6: CVB Budget Adjustment- Last year’s Travel Texas program was free to participate in and we had no way to budget for costs/participation in this year’s program. Because of this, staff is asking for authorization to utilize funds from the CVB's marketing contingency program, which is specifically designated for “unknown/unforeseen” marketing opportunities and programs such as this. Council voted 5-0 to utilize contingency CVB funding.
ITEM 7: Budget Calendar 2023-24 - There are timelines outlined by state law regarding the posting of notices and hearings related to the tax rate and the budget. The budget must be adopted before the tax rate, and the tax rate must be adopted by September 15 for the City to be included in the tax rolls. Council asked that the August 9 and August 16 dates be swapped. Council mwill hold its budget workshop on August 9 and hold a special meeting on August 16 to discuss the tax rate options. Council voted 4-0 to approve the 2023-24 Budget Calendar with the change.
ITEM 8: PID Project Fund Creation - The city is involved in a public improvement district (PID) with the Sam Moon Group for the Metropark Square PID. This PID was created in 2017 and the city acts as a custodian of the PID funds and is not responsible for any payment towards the debt. To follow the new reporting requirements, the city needs to create a project fund to recognize the improvement costs. Council voted 4-0 to approve the creation of a Metropark PID.
