Del Mar Council approves two-year budget

By Joe Tash

The Del Mar City Council approved a two-year spending plan at its meeting on Monday, June 3, that includes a 1.5 percent pay increase for general employees starting Jan. 1, and adds no new full-time employees to the city payroll.

The council approved the budget on a 4-0 vote, with Councilwoman Lee Haydu absent.

The operations and capital improvement budgets for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 fiscal years are $19.1 million and $19.3 million respectively, according to a city staff report.  Those amounts include allocations of $11.8 million and $11.9 million for capital projects in each of the two budget years.  The city’s fiscal year begins on July 1.

According to the staff report, no money is allocated in the budget for management, professional or firefighter salary increases, due to a review of the city’s “compensation philosophy.”

The budget eliminates funding for a vacant senior lifeguard position and a clean water manager position.
