The City Council recently approved a $21-million budget for 1999-2000. Included in the budget is a $220,000 increase in police spending without additional services, due to rising costs from the Orange County Sheriff's Department. Expanding the half-time motorcycle officer position to full time will cost the city an additional $62,000. Other projects include the completion of the San Juan Capistrano Gymnasium for $67,000 and new community service activities costing $30,000.

A desire to keep the Capistrano Unified School District's campuses well-lighted and cool has kept the Board of Trustees from finishing its 2000-01 budget projections. Alarmed that the final spending plan set aside only $300,000 for what could become a $1-million energy bill, trustees approved the document last week only as a preliminary step toward a revised final budget. School board members asked the district staff to revise the $265-million spending plan to include more money for utilities.

The City Council will seek public comment Tuesday as it begins discussions on the proposed 1997-98 city budget. The proposed $11-million budget projects a 5.1% increase in revenue from last year, about $286,000 in savings from the consolidation of the Capistrano Valley Water District into the city's operation, and $1.4 million in reserves. Among other things, the council will be deciding which community groups should receive city funds. Last year, $44,000 was given to community groups.

The city's 1998-99 operating budget, to be unveiled Tuesday, includes spending for expanded city programs thanks in large part to a growing sales tax base, according to a city report. The $12.4-million budget has grown by about 2% from last year; revenue includes $4 million in sales tax proceeds, an 8.1% increase over last year.

The school board Monday is expected to adopt the district's preliminary $180-million budget for the 1997-98 school year, which is up about $7 million from this year. The increased money comes in part from the district's growth and the state's improved economy. Gov. Pete Wilson's budget for the 1997-98 year proposed a statewide increase in funding of nearly $1.7 billion, including $500 million to help expand the primary class size-reduction program.

Community groups seeking money from the city will make their requests today when the City Council begins budget talks for fiscal 1997-98. Because revenue is projected to increase 5.1%, or $545,000, city officials said they likely will have money for new programs or to expand existing ones. The rise in revenue is because of an increase in sales tax collections as new businesses have opened and retail sales have picked up, city officials said.

Three city employees have received layoff notices, and a fourth full-time employee will have his hours halved as part of a plan to cover a $210,000 budget deficit. City Manager George Scarborough said this week that the layoffs in the city's engineering and planning departments for fiscal 1995-96 were based in large part on a slowdown in local construction. "It is reflective of the continued decline in the building and construction industry," Scarborough said.

The City Council has approved a $10-million annual budget that includes money to hire a deputy for a community policing program but eliminates three other city positions and halves the hours of a fourth employee. In approving the budget Wednesday, the council also allocated $40,200 to eight nonprofit organizations that provide services varying from drug and alcohol counseling to meals for shut-in senior citizens. Sixteen organizations had requested $131,880 from the city.

The City Council has given its nod to an initial staff plan to trim $140,000 from the Community Services Department budget. Among the areas slated for possible cuts are after-school programs, the flu shot clinic, annual trail ride and city support for special events such as the Fiesta de las Golondrinas reception. About $100,000 in cuts to recreation programs and special events were made Tuesday, and another $40,000 will be trimmed from personnel.

Increases in police services and maintenance for parks and sports fields are included in the city's $10.2-million budget for fiscal 1996-97. The spending plan approved by the City Council is about $91,500 higher than last year's budget, said Cynthia L. Pendleton, administrative services director. Spending for law enforcement services will rise by $300,000 to $3.4 million. "This budget continues our commitment to public safety," City Manager George Scarborough said.

The City Council began work this week deciding which youth, family and senior programs should have top priority when the budget is drawn up for the next fiscal year. "We're in an information-gathering mode only," said Al King Jr., community services director. "It's not a cutting process yet. We're taking a look at issues like costs, participation levels and whether the programs are meeting the needs of residents."

City officials are bracing for an unanticipated $700,000 decrease in annual revenue, according to the mid-fiscal-year budget figures released this week. The figures mark the second year in a row that San Juan Capistrano has faced a revenue shortfall. Last year, a shortfall of nearly $1 million forced the cutting of three full-time staff positions, but city officials do not foresee a need for such measures this year.

Hours before the Wednesday deadline, the City Council adopted a $10.9-million budget for the 1992-93 fiscal year that includes several tax increases and the layoff of one city employee. Tuesday's unanimous vote allowed the city to start the fiscal year with a budget intact, although council members expressed fears about having to take additional action if state revenue cuts are made later this summer.
