At its council meeting on Tuesday, the City of Grass Valley will discuss more budget woes, this time brought on the state’s financial problems.
This includes the loss of $54,112 in vehicle license fee revenue to the city, as well as the ongoing threat of shuttering redevelopment agencies, as discussed previously.
It comes as the city faces its own revenue decline on the local front — making it the “ham in a proverbial sandwich” of local and state revenue shortfalls. Or a “cluster ‘you know what’” if you prefer.
“This was not anticipated and will negatively affect the budget,” the memo said, referring to the lost vehicle license revenue. Now the fees eamarked for the city are being used to fund a portion of the state public safety program under the newly adopted state budget.
As for the redevelopment agencies, a League of California of Cities lawsuit to challenge the decision to shutter redevelopment agencies will be filed “in the next few weeks,” according to the memo.
“We will not know the final impact for a while yet,” City Administrator Dan Holler said in the memo.
In addition, the council also is expected to approve a $10,000 annual expenditure to the county Economic Rescource Council, the same as last year. The amounts going to the Chamber and Downtown Association are being cut to $10,000 from $12,500 for each group, however.
