Lanesboro City Council hears audit report


Fri, Jun 7th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Government

Jason Boynton of Smith Schafer and Associates presented the 2012 audit report at the regular Lanesboro City Council meeting on June 3.

Boynton went over the main points of the revenues and expenditures. The property tax revenue was very close to the amount that was levied at $435,144. Boynton noted that state LGA (Local Government Aid) had not increased at all, which is the same in all cities. The LGA accounted for 18 percent of the city’s total revenues.

General expenditures increased by only $1,066 from 2011. These include the mayor and council, administration, building, and election costs. Public safety expenditures, including police, fire and ambulance services, totaled $217,234. Boynton noted the Culture and Recreation expenditures had increased by almost $50,000 due to the landscaping project. Revenue from Buffalo Bill Days was $40,646, and the total cost was $38,388.

The unassigned general fund balance makes up 32 percent of the general fund expenditures. Boynton explained the state likes to see it from 30-50 percent, so they are still in range, but it’s something they should keep an eye on and be aware of.

All debts are being paid off in a timely manner, and there was no new debt issued in 2012.

Utility revenues are covering expenses well. Fund cash reserves are at $397,472.

Sewer and Street Projects

Dillon Dombrovski, an engineer with Yaggy Colby and Associates, had quotes from two contractors for the storm sewer project on Hwy. 250. The pipe under Riverside on the Root will be abandoned and re-routed to the south with an outlet into the river south of the building. Blitz Contracting was the low bid, and Dombrovski recommended they accept it. He said they have requested the project be done by mid to end of July so it is done before Buffalo Bill Days.

There was also discussion about the road project at the park. Dombrovski said the water table is within two or three feet of the existing surface at the area near the tennis courts. He spoke with geotechnical engineers who said if they do a reclaim and repave in that area, they will have the same problems return in two years. Dombrovski explained how they could look at a complete sub-cut and reclaim and reshape the area to help drain the water away. The cost of just the construction would be $127,000.

Mayor Steve Rahn said they should consider this, as it would be w .....
