polite way to say bum crack "Strategic Outcomes" will take some getting used to.

art of war crack tieng viet That's one takeaway from the FY 2019 proposed city budget formally presented by City Manager Spencer Cronk Monday afternoon at the Mexican American Cultural Cen­ter. Although the budget staff continues to track revenues and expenditures traditionally, by individual city departments, the proposed budget will also be macro-organized by six City Council-defined "strategic outcomes":

play crack house cleanup Council and City Hall are officially enamored of this new organization, but whether it will make explanatory sense for the public at large remains to be determined.

malwarebytes pro 1.65 crack Another new aspect of the budget delivery this week was embodied by Cronk himself, who in his first year at the helm personalized the budget presentation – historically a fairly informal handoff to the budget staff in an all-day Council work session – into a expository speech at the MACC. He definitely got better attendance – a packed house in the main gallery, including a visible percentage of city staffers but also plenty of interested observers. Cronk also cited a dozen or more public outreach meetings in budget preparation; the obvious intention is that all of this will translate into more public buy-in for the budget itself. (The council introductory work session – with more to follow in August before formal adoption in September – will still happen.)

Line items like tax exemptions for homeowners and wage floors for working people can say much about a city’s relative priorities.

taj game crack Cronk was coy last week when asked if the proposed city budget numbers appeared to be in the same range as the estimates previewed to City Council in April. "You'll just have to wait until the presentation," he said. The cat is now out of the bag, and not as skinny as anticipated.

dontcrack audio v i p In his April preview, Deputy Chief Finan­cial Officer Ed Van Eenoo reported that previously robust revenue streams – primarily property taxes, sales taxes, and development fees – were not keeping up with rising expenses. Predictable "cost drivers" – rising salaries, insurance costs, new facilities – have been annually increasing at a steady 5%, but the revenue streams are no longer hitting similarly sustainable targets. The unflappable Van Eenoo told Council, "The story is those revenues are growing less than four to five percent per year. If the budget is growing four to five percent per year, I need everything to grow, [but] the sales tax, utility fees, and everything else is growing less than four to five percent."

sendblaster cracked version Those early numbers have since been tempered by a few unexpected moderating factors. One is a surprisingly flat year in health insurance costs – after several years of 8 to 10% increases in the city's self-insurance for its employees, the budget staff anticipates "no increase in health insurance premiums for employees and retirees." At a Monday morning media briefing, Van Eenoo said there were simply fewer "major" claims this year – serious illnesses or injuries, lengthy hospital stays – so that costs were flat overall, creating no insurance "cost driver" for the budget and therefore no premium bump for employees.

100 centimeters is equal to how many inches Yet another financial windfall of sorts might be called the "public safety bonus." Of the three major public safety departments, only Fire has a negotiated labor contract, with a comparatively low salary-increase schedule (Van Eenoo described a 0.5% increase in the first year, 1% in the second). What will happen for police and EMS is yet to be determined (those contracts remain under negotiation), but in the meantime, the proposed budget anticipates not as big a spike in labor costs as in past years. (Since negotiations are ongoing, the budget staff is using confidential "placeholders" for those potential costs.)

chief architect x1 crack keygen Finally, public safety costs have been weighed down in recent years by a federal consent decree covering Fire Department hiring, meaning deferred cadet classes and therefore additional costly overtime for current firefighters. Due to recent adjustments and (finally) new cadet classes, Van Eenoo says the department is "over the hump" on overtime costs and therefore seeing less of a budget spike. (For more on that, see "crack comsol multiphysics 4.3a," Aug. 10.)

how to make a laughing gas cracker Mindful of perennial public focus on public safety concerns, Cronk's presentation and the budget briefing highlighted increased public safety spending (proposed and over the last few years). According to staff calculations, the years FY 2016 through the proposed FY 2019 budget reflect an 18% increase in public safety spending overall ($107.6 million). That includes 85 new sworn positions in EMS, 68 new firefighters, and 83 new police officers.

The Big Numbers

fileviewpro license key crack download As usual, the city provided headline numbers for big-picture framing. Here are a few highlights:

Fee and Rate Changes

fat cracker beaumont tx If these numbers hold (and Council decisions generally result in some adjustments), Austinites can expect a relatively mild year of increased fees and rates. As calculated and itemized by the budget staff, and based on a median value home to be assessed at $332,366, we'll see increases of:

Early Returns

free mp3 wma cutter 4.1.9 crack Prior to his public presentation, Cronk made the rounds of Council offices to provide previews for his official audience. Council members indicated they were a bit surprised by the relatively good news, and were looking forward to working through a budget with a broader policy perspective and fewer intractable choices. "If what we were told was accurate," said Jimmy Flan­ni­gan, "we're going to see a budget that has quite a bit of flexibility."

frischluft lenscare cs6 mac crack In addition to endorsing a renewed emphasis on "policymaking" vs. "line-item minutiae," Flannigan praised the full funding of the Housing Trust Fund, as well as more funding committed to long-deferred maintenance of city facilities. He especially welcomed the prospect of a relatively low property tax bite – Flannigan led the applause when Cronk recommended 4.9% in his presentation – although Council will still consider whether to raise the rate in anticipation of the governor and Legis­lat­ure's threat to lower the existing 8% cap.

gnugk control center 2.0 crack Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo was pleased about increased funding for the affordable Housing Trust Fund ("very exciting"), for programs to address homelessness, for historic preservation funding via the Hotel Occupancy Tax, as well as the overall wage increase for city employees. "It sounds as if it's a better year than the last several," Tovo said. She'll be asking for clarity on how all that was accomplished, but said she remains open to Cronk's new process. "As long as we preserve sufficient time to really dig into the details, this should work," Tovo said. "Yes, we accept the strategic priorities, and the budget will flow from those strategic priorities, but ultimately, we still need to pass that budget – so we need to be very comfortable with what's in it, and comfortable that the right programs and resources are being funded."

crack extension force Delia Garza also described the city manager preview as providing "good news," noting that public safety and health insurance appear to have delivered unexpected savings. "That allowed them to start off with a lower tax rate," she said, "and then leave it up to Council whether we decide to go to the rollback rate." She praised progress on expanding fire service (new stations are proposed for Del Valle and Travis Country) and on the continued remodeling of existing stations for gender equity. Another priority for her, she said, has been trying to encourage a grocery store for the far southeast area of her District 2, where small farmers' markets are currently filling the gap. "I've also been talking to city staff about funding a market study for a grocery store in that area," Garza said, "since it's something that needs to be done and it's my understanding that it's relatively low-cost."

the sims 4 demo key generator Finally, asked about the persistent Council debate over what constitutes "public safety" – more law enforcement vs. the health and human services programs she champions – she said, "I think there's got to be a delicate balance: Being proactive, some of our contracts help low-income youth in our community, and they do make an impact on youth and children's lives in our community, and it's important that we get to them early. But at the same time, we're always going to need a police force, and it needs to be properly staffed and funded."

The Big Concepts

perfect uninstaller key crack In his MACC presentation, Cronk was inevitably upbeat about the progress and the challenges represented by each Strateg­ic Outcome, providing a requisite acknowledgment of every council member on hand (and one who wasn't, Ellen Trox­clair) for "leadership" in the various priorities. (Pio Renteria got a nod for affordable housing, Tovo for her work on homelessness, Ora Houston for health care outreach, and so on.) Framed by poster boards laying out the six outcomes, Cronk broke out programs and spending on those he wanted to emphasize. Among them were the Housing Trust Fund (fully funded for the first time, at $5.3 million); bringing all employees (full-time, part-time, and temporary) to the aspirational living-wage floor of $15/hour (a year ahead of schedule); adding $1.8 million for badly needed pool maintenance (funded by a hike in entrance fees); and large increases in mobility funding from both operating funds and voter-approved bond money.

connectify pro crack kaskus Cronk credited the absent Troxclair for promoting to her colleagues another bump in the homestead exemption – 2% additional, now 10%, in total a $24 million hit to the GF budget, yielding a beneficent $12/month to that symbolic median homeowner, and more to his wealthier neighbors. When Coun­cil begins calculating "unmet needs" in late August, that missing $24 million would certainly come in handy.

mmc card data recovery software crack Consider, by comparison, the meager $1.9 million it will cost to move the lowest-wage civilian city employees from $13.84/hour to a princely $15. A couple of people who attended Cronk's presentation will be direct beneficiaries of that modest increase.

"Right now I'm living paycheck to paycheck," Rangel said, and what seems a small increase amounts to almost 10% of her current hourly rate. "For me and my family, it will definitely make a difference."

roboform 7.9.0.0 keygen Joel Manzo is a four-year lifeguard at Barton Springs, and audibly proud of his service to the city and the pool visitors. "We save lives, we make sure everybody goes home safe with their families, and [noting that lifeguards do much more than just watch swimmers] we provide a clean and safe swimming environment." He said previous city raises have meant more and better recruitment, and less required overtime. "We need to make this wage a base, and reward employees for better work and for taking on more responsibility."

coat rack cool It's a cliche that budgets are moral documents. But "line items" like these – tax exemptions for homeowners, wage floors for working people – can say much about a city's relative priorities, its leadership, and its voters and residents. Cronk's proposed budget now makes its way directly to City Council, where the coming decisions will continue to reflect much about the relative priorities of Austin and Austinites.

The $4.1 billion "All Funds" Budget

download crack adobe photoshop cs5 extended edition Expenditures: These six "Strategic Outcomes" are now the policy foundation for city budgeting decisions. Although departments are still funded and tracked individually, the "outcomes" reflect redefined policy goals, with their own metrics/goals for progress. For example, "Safety" now includes the traditional public safety departments (Police, Fire, EMS), but also Austin Energy and Austin Water spending on critical utility infrastructure, and flood prevention funding by Watershed Protection.

The utilities provide 48% of all revenue, with property taxes and sales taxes a relatively smaller 22%.
