Council considers third loan for city's EMS fund


Arlington City Council faced a short agenda for its workshop meeting this Monday, with only three items on the agenda.

In her monthly financial report for the month of March, Finance Director Kristin Garcia reported that revenue is up by 6 percent compared to last year at this time.

She also reported that the city’s EMS Fund required a third loan from the Growth Fund for almost $96,000, bringing the total for this year up to $312,226. The amount budgeted for the inter-fund loan is $186,000.

A vote on the inter-fund loan will be on next week’s regular council agenda. Similar loans in 2015 and 2016 were paid in full by the end of 2016, Garcia reported.

The new restrooms in Haller Park were budgeted in 2016, but the funds were not forwarded to 2017, so a budget amendment will be required,.

The finance department is reviewing two options for new financial management software, with plans to present a recommendation to council in May.

Council was also scheduled to review this Monday a resolution to waive land use fees for the Arlington Fly-In.

Council approved a similar resolution last year when the FAA concurred that this was an appropriate event in which fees could be waived as it is an aeronautical use that promotes Goodwill in the community and offers educational opportunities in aviation. The Fly-In will still be required to pay the $100 processing fee required for all events. A vote is expected at the May 1 meeting.

At this week’s workshop meeting, an executive session was scheduled to discuss pending or potential litigation.
