From Mayor Doug Davidson

Dear Kirtland Residents,

The city's operating budget for fiscal year 2017 was presented to City Council on February 6th for their review and approval. I would like to thank the department heads and finance department for their work on the budget. I also appreciate City Council's review and assistance in the budget process again this year.

Revenues in the Fiscal Year 2017 Budget are estimated at $7,767,100, a decrease of $64,965 or -.83% over the prior year's actual receipts. Recommended expenditures on the 2017 Fiscal Year Budget are increased by $568,959 or 7.36% versus the 2016 budget appropriation. The recently released Ohio Auditors Report on Financial Health Indicators had 4 critical and 3 cautionary measures noted for Kirtland in 2015. I assume that the 2016 indicators will be similar, despite a slightly larger carryover. The Auditor's report puts in red and yellow what we know intuitively, and have been told by the finance director and credit rating agencies. We are not carrying enough reserves in our general fund. if we wish to carry on at this level and provide quality services.

An extensive extract of the budget will be available on the city's website once the budget review is completed, and after the vote of City Council. The complete budget will also be available at City Hall, Kirtland Community Center, and the Kirtland Public Library.

In addition to the budget, we continue to evaluate the condition of our city's streets. I will be posting the road inventory list, paving strategy, and the road projects planned for the Public Works Department in 2017 on the city's website, subsequent to the approval of the 2017 budget.

There is always the challenge of controlling costs, finding efficiencies, and growing to build revenues. Everyone at City Hall is committed to making the City of Kirtland a great place to live and work and we hope that 2017 will be a productive and prosperous year for our community.

Warm Regards,
Mayor Doug Davidson
