Review Facility Security System Proposal

The City has a desire to move all of our facility access to one system.  We currently still have several doors at city hall on the old Verex system.  This system was in place when Tri-Comm was in business and when they went out of business, we went to the Avigilon System with our public works facility and on any new doors that were added to the system.  The verex system is old and the server has been giving us some issues.  Staff would like to discuss the proposal we have from All-State that would allow us to move all of the doors to the Avigilon System.  We would like to discuss this in the work session before moving forward.  This is an item that has been included in the 2019 budget as part of security upgrades.

CIP and Staffing Plan

Staff would like to discuss with the City Council the 5-year CIP and Staffing Plan with the City Council. This plan will be adopted as part of the 2020 final budget on December 16, 2019.  The information for this item will be presented at the work session.

Review of 2020 Budget and Levy

Staff has been working with department heads on revising 2020 budget requests and would like to discuss this in more detail with the City Council.  The 2020 Preliminary Budget was provided to the City Council in September.  Please bring this document with you and staff will present the recommended changes they have for the 2020 with the City Council at the meeting.  The City Council will need to determine if they are comfortable with these changes or suggest any additional changes to the 2020 budget.  The public hearing on the 2020 budget is set for Monday, December 2, 2019 and the final budget will need to be considered on December 16, 2019 council agenda.
