Residents can peruse Issaquah city budget online

Citizens can dig deep into the 2012 municipal budget.

Officials posted the budget online April 9. Read it at www.ci.issaquah.wa.us/Page.asp?NavID=2761.

The budget is the fruition of a long process to establish priorities.

In October, Mayor Ava Frisinger sent to the City Council a $32 million general fund budget — dollars to fund police and fire services, community development and planning, parks and recreation, and municipal government.

Then, per standard procedure, council members adjusted the budget to add projects and shift spending to other priorities. Overall, council members’ changes amounted to $4.1 million.

The total city budget — including dollars for capital expenses and from other accounts — is $85.7 million.

The council is expected to approve a series of adjustments to the budget to implement a reorganization of City Hall departments and functions.

Through February, leaders reduced the Planning and Public Works Engineering workforces through layoffs and a severance program. Officials also left vacant positions unfilled.
