San Ramon council to consider adopting 2014-15 budget

Commission vacancies, Teen Council report among other meeting topics

The San Ramon City Council is scheduled to consider adopting next year's city budget Tuesday evening (May 27).

"The economic environment for the City is showing strong revenue growth. It is anticipated that this trend will continue over the next few fiscal years. The budget maintains prudent financial reserves that serve the city well and helps to preserve the financial health of the City of San Ramon," administrative services director Eva Phelps wrote in her report to the council.

In addition to debating adoption of the recommended $82.2 million budget, council members will also discuss establishing an appropriation limit and authorizing carryover capital project appropriations into the 2014-15 fiscal year.

The regular council meeting is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. inside City Hall at 2222 Camino Ramon.

In other business, the council is set to introduce an ordinance that would amend the city code section pertaining to commission vacancies.

The change, which would apply to openings with unexpired terms of fewer than six months, would give council members the option to appoint a person to serve out that term followed by an additional full term -- as opposed to reappointing the person upon the completion of the unexpired term.

The San Ramon Teen Council will present its annual report. The city council will then give special recognition to this year's teen council as well as outgoing Parks and Community Services Commission student commissioner Harshini Chengareddy.

The council will also receive a report about the Measure J Traffic Congestion Relief Agency, TRAFFIX program.
