City council acts on alley, budget, liquor agreement

On a 3-2 roll call vote, the Timber Lake City Council granted approval for vacating the alley in Block 5 as requested by property owners Dale LaCompte and the BIA. That action, taken at the Sept. 5 council meeting, came after a public hearing at which about a dozen people gave their opinions on closing the alley and the related subject of the proposed Family Dollar Store to be located there. The public input session lasted about 30 minutes.

Voting in favor of a motion to grant the petitioners’ request were council members Mike LaCompte and Lilian Turcotte; voting no were Josh Lemburg and Tom Hermes. Mayor Tim Gunderson broke the tie with his yes vote.

Timber Lake City Council wrestles with budget issues

By Bob Johnson

Meeting on August 27, the Timber Lake City Council carried on indepth discussions on a budget for 2019. Council members examined a draft budget of expenses and income prepared by Finance Officer Karla Nordyke. By the end of the evening they had made some changes and agreed on a preliminary budget. Nordyke was directed to make copies with updated figures in preparation for the first reading to be held at the September 5 regular meeting. The second reading and final adoption was set for September 17.

One of the first questions raised for discussion was the matter of setting a reasonable reserve. Nordyke distributed a chart showing the dollar amounts for six, three, and one month reserves for the general, broadband, water and sewer funds. Council members decided to set a goal of building a six month reserve to be accumulated over the next year.

Expenditures must equal revenue

The final draft of the 2019 Timber Lake City budget will look quite different from the first draft that Finance Officer Karla Nordkye prepared and distributed at the August 6 council meeting. To make the expenditure budget balance the revenue (which it must), the council wrestled with ways to cut costs in several areas during the August 27 special budget meeting. The budget will have its first reading on Sept. 5 and the final reading and adoption on Sept. 17.

General Fund

In the first draft, the general fund (which includes streets, buildings, garbage collection, law enforcement, etc.) showed $728,041 in expenses and $478,451 in income – a difference of $249,590. The income included $77,958 cash from the end of 2018 to be applied to the 2019 budget.
