- Fire: As discussed orally at the January 11, 2011, City Council legislative meeting, the Fire Department was projected to be between $1.2 to $1.5 million over budget due to overtime expenditures, primarily due to a large number of firefighter and medic vacancies in the Department during the first half of the year. While the rate of overtime expenditures has slowed with the ability of the Department to use the new recruits to staff shifts instead of using overtime, the Department provided unbudgeted staff to help in the response to large fires in Prince William and Prince George’s Counties, as well as a February snow emergency. Funds to cover these expenses in the Fire Department were included in the transfer resolution approved by City Council on June 28, 2011.
- Transit Subsidies: In FY 2010, the City recognized $3,051,822 savings in Transit subsidy payments to WMATA by utilizing State revenues available above those budgeted for this purpose with the Northern Virginia Transportation Commission (from regional gas tax collections and State aid dedicated for transit purposes). It is these savings in the prior year that produced the substantial increase in FY 2011 in this category.
- Schools: The City currently provides approximately 76 percent of the estimated funds budgeted to operate the City public school system in FY 2011. The increase reflects the budgeted 2 percent increase in the transfer to the Schools.
- Debt Service: The increase reflects budgeted debt service for new bonds issued in June 2009 and June 2010. A portion of the interest cost ($1.2 million) is reimbursed from the federal government as part of the Build America Bonds program.
- Non Departmental: The decrease primarily reflects a budgeted decrease in the City’s contribution to the other post-Employment Benefits Trust Fund.
- Personnel Expenditures: Personnel expenditures remain on par with last year. These personnel expenditures are just slightly higher (0.8 percent) than the budget through May 31st.
- Non-Personnel Expenditures: Non-personnel spending increased 6.1 percent. For most departments, differences in spending patterns for non-personnel during the year reflect the timing of bill payments and do not necessarily reflect changes in spending patterns. We are closely monitoring and controlling these expenditures to be at or below budget.
- Year-to-Date Expenditures: As of May 31, 2011, actual General Fund expenditures totaled $420.7 million, an increase of $16.1 million, or 4.0 percent, above expenditures for the same period last year. (It should be noted that last year expenditures were approximately $10 million less than revenues at year-end.) The revised budget reflects amounts that were appropriated in the supplemental appropriation ordinances approved in December and April.
