Kiddie introduced the agenda item and turned to discussion over to Consultant Reid.
Reid stated the 2014 Audit was expected to be completed in early December when Eric Barnes’ audit team will be available to do the field work. The 2016 Budget summary was reviewed, page by page, noting most revenues being very close to the anticipated budget line items. The revenues for the town were close to what was anticipated for 2015. In terms of expenditures, the general government expenses were higher than anticipated, that due to additional legal activity, new growth equity, commercial and residential development. Other expenditures were on budget with the exception of the Public Works fund which was due to additional work done by the engineering firm, and the Sewer Fund had camera work done. The 2016 Budget summary was reviewed, page by page, noting most revenues being very close to the anticipated budget line items. He based the overall budget on the conservative side. After a lengthy discussion and noting some additions and minor corrections, he asked for a motion.
Councilmember Fehlberg motioned to approve the 2016 Budget with the additions/corrections noted. Motion was seconded by Councilmember Lilliston and was passed by unanimous roll call vote of council members present.

Lilliston updated regarding the Health Clinic held October 3, 2015. Inner City Health had 18 flu shots and 12 screenings; it was a good turnout. Feed Your Soul Fitness handed out cards and magnets at the Health Fair. She asked if members would like to have the Spring Clinic as there were only a few participants or they could continue with the clinic in the fall only. Discussion continued with regard to the Fall Clean-Up Schedule for the two roll-offs and the street sweeping. The date set was Monday, November 19th for the Street Sweep with the alternate date of Monday, November 23rd. The Roll-Off dates were set for Saturday, November 7th and 14th.

Kiddie introduced the agenda item. He mentioned there was a barking dog complaint and asked if it was taken care of. He said he had a couple requests to rescind the street lighting fee and use the franchise fee to pay for the street lighting. He will add it to next month’s agenda for discussion. He noted it was brought to his attention by the town’s engineer that the EPA will be looking into the water pipes with regard to lead and that the town would need to determine if that is the case. It could be on the water main feed line to the meter box to the street to the residences meter box. Wheat Ridge Water will not be responsible from the main to the meter box.
