Shoreline City Council meetings Monday feature Elections Director and human services funding

Friday, March 11, 2016

Shoreline City Council Meetings Monday, March 14, 2016, City Hall 17500 Midvale Ave N.

Council will meet with King County Elections Director Julie Wise at a Special Meeting 5:45pm.

Regular Meeting 7:00pm
Discussion of Human Service Funding Policies

As this is a discussion item, no formal action is required. However, staff is seeking Council direction on the following recommendations:
  • Staff recommends that ongoing funding for the operations of the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center, which totaled $95,708 in 2016 funding, be transferred from the competitive human services program to the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services operational budget, starting in 2017.
  • Staff recommends that the Council use a formula to set the City’s level of funding for competitively allocated human services funds, with the 2017 level set at 0.75% of General Fund revenues. Staff also recommends that Council increase human services funding by 0.05% of General Fund revenues each year for a total of five years until the target of 1.00% of General Fund revenues is reached in 2022. Both of these recommendations would be contingent upon passage of the Levy Lid Lift in November 2016.
  • Staff recommends that the increase in human services funding in 2017 and beyond be targeted to address homelessness and other needs in the funding categories of ‘Basic Needs’ and ‘Counseling’.
