2018 Adopted Annual Operating & Capital Improvement Budget

CULTURAL ARTS Variance

CULTURAL ARTS Variance Justification Personnel (+$600): Seasonal/Temporary Wages (+$600): Increase due to the addition of a pottery instructor. The basement addition in 2017 allows for the addition of a kiln and pottery classes which has been a long time request from Curtis patrons. Purchased Services (+$4,838): Professional Services (+$5,000): Increase in the Arts and Humanities Council budget to cover installation costs related to rotating public art installations as their contribution to partnerships. Contracted Services (-$7,276): Decrease to reflect historic use of accounts. A portion of this amount was moved to Catering/Dining Services, Advertising/Notifications Services, and Printing/Publication Services to accurately reflect needed services to support Curtis Center programming. Catering/Dining Services (+$4,660): Increase due to shift of budget from contracted services to reflect historic use. Telecommunication Services (-$168): Decrease due to smartphone use as opposed to tablet for remote online registration access. Postage/Shipping Services (+$1,400): Increase to cover expanded mailing list based on requests from patrons to receive mailings throughout the year. Advertising/Notification Services (+$900): Increase due to shift of budget from contracted services to reflect historic use and future needs in marketing. Printing/Publication Services (+200): Increase due to shift of budget from contracted services to reflect historic use and future needs in marketing. Training/Education (+$125): Slight increase to allow for additional attendance by staff at a national conference that will be held locally in 2018. Supplies/Non-Capital Equipment (-$8,957): Operating Supplies (-$3,050): Decrease to reflect shift from purchased and prepared food for receptions to be catered for a more professional outcome. Non-Capital Equipment (-$5,917): Moved to Capital Equipment due to nature of proposed purchase. Uniforms/Safety Equipment (+$10): Slight increase due to pricing increases. Capital Outlay (+$6,000): Increase for purchase of kiln out of SCFD grant funding. 120

PARKS, TRAILS & OPEN SPACE Statement of Purpose The Parks, Trails and Open Space Program ensures high quality planning, design and construction of parks, trails and open spaces in the Village. Description The Parks, Trails and Open Space Program administers the goals and objectives of the City Council and the Parks, Trails and Recreation (PTR) Commission to provide personal enjoyment through the planning, design and construction of its parks, trails and open spaces. Accomplishments The construction of the Goldsmith Gulch Trail Extension and Caley Avenue Undercrossing project was completed as well as the design of the Goldsmith Gulch channel restoration. The design for Phase IV implementation of the Village Greens North Master Plan was completed to include an improved entry with shelters and a restroom. Field #11 at Village Greens Park was converted from a natural turf field to a synthetic. Outdoor musical instruments were installed at Westlands Park and Senior Outdoor Exercise Equipment at Curtis Park. The irrigation system in Orchard Hills Park was upgraded. The missing section of trail along the west edge of Monaco Park was constructed. The Running Fox Park pond was restored to provide an amenity for the area. The feasibility study was completed for the High Line Canal Stormwater Demonstration project. Goals/Objectives In 2018, the construction of Phase IV of the Village Greens North Master Plan will be completed. The construction of the Goldsmith Gulch Channel Restoration will be completed between Caley Avenue and Fair Avenue. The Silo Park Playground will be updated with new equipment. The Greenwood Gulch Trail Crossing will be improved by an upgrade from a low flow crossing to a box culvert. Contingent on being able to secure grant funding, the High Line Canal Trailhead Restroom and the Castlewood Park Restrooms will be converted from port-a-lets to plumbed restrooms. Also contingent on grant funding, an addition to the Carson Skate Park to include street elements will be constructed.
