MAYOR'S MESSAGE Dear Residents of Lewiston, The development of the City?s annual budget is the single most important action taken by the Mayor and City Council. It is a policy statement about the work to be accomplished throughout the coming year ; the levels of service to be provided to our residents; the amounts of each funding type to be used; all guided by the City of Lewiston?s current strategic plan. The past twelve months have been one for the books for our residents, which is making the development of the next annual budget challenging. It started with skyrocketing residential property valuations and ensuing residential property tax increases, living with the catastrophic failure of the high reservoir, and working through irrigation water restrictions in much of the City. Our residents are understandably seeking accountability and action from the Mayor and City Council at this time, not necessarily thinking about developing the next budget. Even though these somewhat historic events may have been enough to slow down some City government services, other, less than somewhat historic events, happened that kept your government moving in the right direction. First, the finance department took advantage of recent higher interest rates by reinvesting monies that were in lower interest-bearing accounts into higher interest-bearing accounts. This resulted in significantly greater interest earnings for the City of Lewiston. These additional interest earnings will reduce the demand on property taxes and other revenue sources used in developing the City?s next budget. Secondly, the Public Works Department substantially completed two major projects: the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant and a water treatment plant. These two projects were approved by the voters in November 2019, delivered mostly on time with some allowance given for external events such as supply chain constraints, and completed on budget. These projects reflect positively on the City of Lewiston. In fact, the wastewater treatment plant project has received an award through the Contractor?s Association and the water plant project has been nominated for an award through the Design-Build Institute of America. Lastly, our leadership team changed with the new hires of Police Chief Jason Kuzik and Community Development Director Shannon Grow, and the retirement of Fire Chief Travis Myklebust. Chief Kuzik joined the City of Lewiston Police Department in October 2022. Director Grow joined the City of Lewiston Community Development Department in November 2022. Both Chief Kuzik and Director Grow have been busy learning and implementing their respective department budgets and strategic plan goals. Chief Myklebust retires in May 2023 after thirty-one-plus years of service to the Lewiston Fire Department. He worked right up to his retirement date and will be remembered for his leadership and dedicated service to the City of Lewiston. The City is actively recruiting for a new fire chief. Three planning efforts currently in the works have the potential to impact the development of current and future annual budgets. They are the Drainage System Utility Fee, comprehensive plan rewrite, and Community Park. The Drainage System Utility Fee, if approved by the City Council, will replace property taxes for drainage system maintenance in the City. The Comprehensive Plan is a long-range plan covering a minimum of 17 State of Idaho-required community components that will guide the future and growth of the City of Lewiston. The development of the Community Park project will be decided by the voters this fall. All three planning efforts are presented in more detail in this publication. Please take the time to learn about these important efforts. The Mayor and City Council will be taking recent events into consideration, assessing current economic indicators, and making projections about future conditions in developing the annual budget for the next fiscal year 2024. Just as importantly, you always have the opportunity to provide your input at City Council meetings during citizen comments and public hearings, and in fact, you are encouraged to provide input. Making a policy statement about the work priorities to be accomplished throughout the coming year will be best made after hearing from you! Learn more about the City?s budget process on the next page! - Daniel Johnson

YOUR CITY BUDGET An annual budget isn't just a set of dry numbers. It's a reflection of a community's values, priorities, and hopes for the future. In Idaho, government the City Council for potential approval. Carol Maurer | PublicInformation Officer |

Community Education and Engagement

municipalities have to craft budgets that cover only the next 12 months, which project revenue and costs, identify which services will be funded and for whom, and layout plans for key projects. But creating a budget that truly serves the public requires more than just crunching numbers. It calls for a strategic plan that takes into account the diverse perspectives of everyone who has a stake in the community's success - from residents and business owners to government officials and public employees. From initial development to final implementation, every step of the budget process is critical to ensuring that a public agency's resources are used in a way that truly benefits the community. Wondering how the City of Lewiston tackles its annual budget?The process typically kicks off a few months into the fiscal year and takes about five months from start to finish. Here's an overview of the stages involved: - The Mayor and staff develop the budget proposal. - Community education and engagement efforts ensue. - The budget is approved, adopted, and implemented. - Ongoing communicating and engaging efforts.

The City of Lewiston is committed to engaging its residents in the budget planning and approval process. By soliciting input from the community, the City can ensure that the budget aligns with the needs and priorities of its citizens. Here are some of the ways in which the City engages residents: - Open houses, where community members can ask questions and provide feedback directly to city officials. - Needs surveys, which allow residents to share their priorities for city services and programs. - Budget guides, which provide a clear and accessible overview of the proposed budget and how it will be allocated. - Online interaction, such as social media posts and web broadcasts, to reach a wider audience and facilitate remote participation. The budget is a critical tool for shaping the future of the community, and the City of Lewiston understands the importance of involving its residents in the process. That's why the City produces two informative budget guides each year, which provide an in-depth look at the proposed budget and upcoming meetings. You can find these guides on the City's website, along with information about how to get involved and make your voice heard. Prior to the proposed budget going to the City Council for adoption, each member of the legislative body receives budget information and is expected to review it and ask questions during budget work sessions. Budget Approval, Adoption, and Implementation Upcoming Budget Work Sessions: 1.

fiscal year budget, which is currently being developed, is tentatively scheduled for August 14, 2023.

Official Reading of the Budget

Under Idaho law, the proposed budget of the municipality must be read aloud into the official record. As of the current schedule, three readings of the proposed budget, which is currently being developed, are slated to take place on August 14th (same meeting as the public hearing), August 21st, and August 28th. Once the budget has been approved and formally entered into the record, the City will announce the official budget by publishing an ordinance on its official website and in various other locations, including the local newspaper. Typically, this occurs in September, ahead of the new fiscal year that commences on October 1st. Official Publication of the Approved Budget

Financial Audit

Each year during the budget cycle, an independent auditor examines the Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR) to verify compliance. The ACFR provides a detailed and comprehensive overview of the City's financial condition. This process represents another aspect of checks and balances in local governance, ensuring the City's transparency in budget reporting and responsible use of taxpayers' money. The City of Lewiston has demonstrated compliance with these standards for many years, earning the Government Finance Officers Association Certificate of Achievement in Financial Reporting for twenty-one consecutive years. This prestigious national award recognizes the City's adherence to the highest standards in preparing local government financial reports.

Budget Guides

After the work sessions are completed, the City will publish two budget guides. One guide contains the proposed budget, which is quite lengthy, while the other is a more condensed version of the proposed budget. The more condensed version is designed to provide the information that most residents seek from the City and breaks down the information in an easy-to-understand manner. It also includes special interest articles regarding future projects that are outlined in the proposed budget.

Public Hearing Process

When the budget guides are made available to the general public, a Public Hearing Notice is also published in various locations, including the local newspaper. The public hearing is an opportunity for community members to comment on the proposed budget. Its purpose is to enable citizens to express their views on the budget and provide feedback to the governing body. At the hearing, individuals can ask questions, offer comments, or voice concerns about the impact of the proposed budget on themselves or the community. The governing body will take into account the feedback received from the public before finalizing the budget. Public hearings are crucial to the budgeting process, as they promote transparency and accountability of government entities to their constituents. The Public Hearing for the proposed

Continued Budget Engagement

Apart from the budget guides mentioned earlier in this article, the City regularly announces the projects it funds across the community and may organize public events to gather feedback as new projects and issues arise. The City may also conduct public forums during the revision of its Strategic Plan, which plays a significant role in budget planning. The Strategic Plan is a comprehensive and long-term plan that establishes the goals, objectives, and necessary actions to direct the City's growth and development. Explore the City's financial transparency portal and other regularly updated financial materials to stay informed about the budget. As a valued member of the community, your engagement helps the city fulfill its mission of providing quality services.
