Agenda for November 18, 2019 Shoreline Council meeting

There are two action items and one discussion item on the agenda.

Action Item 8(a)Adoption of Ordinance No. 873 – Setting the 2020 Regular and Excess Property Tax Levies

Following the November 4th public hearing, the City Council asked for additional information and discussed potential changes to the proposed mid-biennium budget modification, including all proposed levies, taxes, fees, and rates. There were no proposed adjustments to proposed Ordinance No. 873, and Council directed that staff bring back the proposed ordinance for adoption at tonight’s meeting.

Action Item 8(b) Adoption of Ordinance No. 872 – Amending the 2019-2020 Biennial Budget as Amended, According to the Mid-Biennium Budget Modification

Council is scheduled to adopt proposed Ordinance No. 872 amending the 2019-2020 Biennial Budget.

Discussion Item 9(a) Discussing Ordinance No. 874 - Amending Shoreline Municipal Code Section 3.35.150 – Establishing the Municipal Arts Fund and Providing for Funding from 1% of Capital Improvement Plan Funding for Certain Capital Improvement Plan Projects

Each year, funds are utilized from the Municipal Arts Fund (MAF) to support implementation of the Public Art Plan. Based on the MAF expenditures and the current 1% contribution from qualifying capital projects, the Municipal Arts Fund is expected to be depleted in 2022 or earlier if capital projects are delayed or canceled. 

More money is taken out of the MAF each year than is contributed, resulting in a declining balance. 

Staff recommends amending SMC 3.35.150 to redefine funding for the Municipal Art Fund and the City’s Public Art Program by expanding and clarifying the list of City capital projects that provide a 1% contribution to the MAF or to the Public Art Program. The purpose of the amendment is to:
  • provide more stable revenue for the Municipal Arts Fund; provide a higher level of funding for the Public Art Program; and make the implementation of the MAF Ordinance more clear, efficient and less subjective.
Meetings are streamed live and then archived for later viewing. See the City Council web page.
