Solana Beach City Council approves budget for next fiscal year

By Kristina Houck

Solana Beach plans to spend nearly $25.9 million in the next fiscal year.

In a 4-0 vote with Deputy Mayor Thomas M. Campbell absent, the City Council on Wednesday, June 26, adopted the 2013-14 budget, which includes allocations of almost $3.4 million for capital improvement projects.

An estimated $616,000 in upgrades to the city’s sewer pump station and $500,000 for the replacement of small sewer pipelines were among the projects included in the spending plan.

Councilman David A. Zito noted the roughly $1.5 million to replace a stairway to a southern beach near Del Mar Shores, and repair a stairway at Tide Beach Park, is not yet included in the budget. The council discussed both projects during its June 12 meeting and gave direction to staff on a potential funding plan.

The city’s fiscal year begins on July 1. The balanced budget projects $26.1 million in revenues for the city.

General fund revenues, which cover basic services such as public safety, are estimated at nearly $14.3 million for the next fiscal year, a 1.6 percent decrease from the current year’s projection.

Property tax, the city’s largest revenue source, is expected to total $5.8 million, a 1.3 percent increase from mid-year estimates. Sales tax is expected to hit $2.8 million, a decrease of 4 percent.
