'Soft services' likely target in search for Council has some tough decisions ahead of them as the city considers all departments and service levels in hopes of shaving $3 million off the city's $35 million budget. "I do feel we need to cut the budget, we need to cut our level of service in different areas, but the problem Wedding Party Dresses is deciding where,"Says city manager joe van koeverden. Van koeverden explains that in a municipal budget, 70 per cent of costs are categorized as"Core services,"Which include the fire service, police service, sewer and water services, while the other 30 per cent is broken down into"Soft services,"Which include the arena, museum, library and airport.He adds that core services are difficult areas to cut while soft services are what the city will really be looking into when it comes to cutting nearly 10 per cent of the city's budget.But what the city really needs he says are cuts that are going to have an immediate impact on the budget. "We need to show a demonstrated change in our expenditures in order to start moving towards a different level of service and a different level of expenses because we know the tax payer doesn't want another 10 per cent increase so we need to find other ways to change our budget. " Although he agrees that dryden's outdoor sporting facilities, museum and arena are all treasured in our community, the current user fees for these activities just aren't cutting it.He says that as of now the user fees only cover 20 to 25 per cent of the overall expenses of operating Evening Dresses:http://www.stwd.co.uk/ these facilities while taxpayers cover the rest. "So maybe the user fees have to increase in order to have a higher rate (more Prom dresses here) of covering those expense versus the general tax population,"He said. In order to hike user fees, users will have to have a higher commitment to operating expenses but van koeverden questions where the city should draw the line since a balanced ratio between user fees and operating costs would result in doubling the fees.He adds that a hike in user fees is something that will have to be eased into over a period of time. "It's not something that we can do overnight but it's something that we need to have a plan for moving forward so we have to have some public acceptance of the idea of increasing user fees to a level that is more realistic and takes less pressure off the tax base. " He adds that council and management are currently looking into ways that each department can cut pockets of up to $5, 000, $10, 000 or $15, 000, but with a budget that has already been recently cut three times over, he says its getting harder to find areas in which they can make significant changes without having to decease service levels. "It's not like our operating costs and budgets out there are fat with a lot ofthere are fat with a lot of extra dollars and cents because they've already been trimmed down,"He said "So the next trimming down will result in some Women Prom Dresses UK type of service reduction and the public has to be aware that we can't trim down anymore without reducing what we do which means less hours of available service and different standards of snow removal. " Van koeverden says that when compared to kenora, dryden has a much higher service level when it comes to snow removal, something that could change in upcoming months.In order to help ease the public into drops in service levels and budget cuts, there will be a public meeting held at the centre on nov. "This isn't about adding new services, this is about changing or cutting the services that we presently offer,"He said.Ltr(Long track with reverse), high and low forward.[Click the title for the full listing] [ Snowmobile, 1987Polaris snowmobile, 440 engine, fan cooled.Ltr(Long track with reverse), high and low forward.[Click the title for the full listing] [ AssociateWarehouse One is looking for a friendly, caring, committed and real individual to join our team in.[Click the title for the full listing] [ XPS 14 BatteryDELL XPS 14 Battery, DELL XPS 14 Charger DELL XPS 14 Battery battery DELL XPS 14 Battery Capacity:.[Click the title for the full listing] [(Aircraft mntce engineers or 3rd or 4th year apprentices)Skycare is currently hiring(Two)Aircraft maintenance engineers and/or 3rd or 4th year apprentices.
