Council Auditor Kyle Billy made a report on the 5 audits/reports issued by his office since the last committee meeting.

#794 – Quarterly Budget Summary for the 6 Months Ending March 31, 2017: the trends to date project a positive budget variance of $7.7 million by year-end, with a $2.8 million positive revenue variance and a $4.9 million positive expense variance. One noteworthy item is the projected $3.45 million negative (excess) variance in the Fire and Rescue Department’s budget, largely attributable to overtime payments. Council Member Schellenberg asked for information on the department’s DROP retirements and resignations compared to recent hiring numbers. Council Member Gulliford asked for additional information on other factors contributing to the JFRD negative variance, including possibly additional costs for Narcan (antidote used to treat opioid overdoses) and unreimbursed EMS transports. Mr. Billy noted that Hurricane Matthew expenses are projected to be $51 million, of which $26.1 million has been actually expended to date. The City hopes to get insurance and FEMA reimbursements for much of the expenses, with the local share projected at $6-7 million.

#740A – Information Technologies Division Billing Audit Follow-Up: all recommendations have been implemented except one, which is in process.

#749A – JTA Accounts Payable Audit Follow-Up: all recommendations have been implemented except one, which is in process (pooled cash rather than multiple separate bank accounts).

#795 – Police and Fire Pension Fund Bank Accounts Audit: payments made were properly supported, accurate and timely, but improvements could be made in accuracy and timeliness of receiving and depositing cash. The report recommends abandoning the out-of-date financial package used to track payables and receivables and utilizing the City’s Accounting Division and Tax Collector’s Office to perform those functions.

#796 – Visit Jacksonville Audit: the audit found that the organization had adequate procedures in place to safeguard the issuance of hard checks, but needed better procedures for the use of ECH electronic transactions. There was a lack of segregation of duties in the financial area (one employee processing invoices, making payments and reconciling bank statements) and the organization was not complying with City travel regulations as required by its contract. There were also insufficiencies in the supporting documentation of payments to employees for items such as bonus pay and cellphone allowances. Visit Jacksonville has agreed to make the changes recommended.

 

General Counsel Jason Gabriel gave an update on the progress of negotiations over settlement of the Loblolly Wetlands Mitigation Bank dispute with the private operator of the bank. Several productive mediation sessions have been held and he believes the parties are getting close to resolution; the discussion now centers around arriving at agreement on the details of financial and credit amounts. He said it should become clear in the next few weeks if the parties can reach a settlement agreement or will reach an impasse and proceed to court.

BILL SUMMARY

 

Council Member Becton explained his rationale for offering the bill, emphasizing the need for generational equity (the current Council and taxpayers should not pass on a huge pension obligation to future generations of taxpayers) and the uncertainty of future financial conditions that may impair the City’s ability to make the increased payments necessary several decades in the future. Council Member Gulliford cautioned that the additional $25,000 homestead exemption recently authorized by the Florida Legislature for a referendum vote in 2018 will put another sizeable hole in the City’s finances if adopted as expected and recommended withholding action for several years to see what the effect of that revenue loss will be. He suggested allocating a portion of whatever year-end budget balances may be available toward pension amortization on a year-by-year basis in the budget process. Council Member Schellenberg felt that the City has long under-funded its capital and maintenance needs and reiterated the uncertain impact of the potential homestead exemption expansion. Council Member Bowman cited a list of upcoming financial needs including the local share of the cost of dredging the St. Johns River, the revitalization of the Jacksonville Landing, the Shipyards redevelopment, and a backlog of deferred infrastructure needs. Council Member Katrina Brown noted that there is list of unfinished Better Jacksonville Plan projects that were promised to the voters who approved that sales tax, and the City needs additional police officers and firefighters. She agreed with the concept of using a portion of year-end fund balances.

BILL SUMMARY             TEU: Defer

 

Council President Boyer explained her understanding of this complicated issue and why the City is involved in what might at first appear to be a dispute between two private parties. She said there appears to be some confusion over the difference between the legal easement and the requested waiver of the zoning requirement for road frontage to access the lot in question. The City is involved because of the requested road frontage waiver, not because of the status of the easement dispute between the private parties, which will likely continue regardless of whether or how the City Council decides on the waiver request. The mediator in the state-authorized alternative dispute resolution procedure found flaws in the LUZ Committee’s action based on a misunderstanding or misrepresentation of certain facts. Council can choose to side with the mediator’s or with the LUZ Committee’s interpretation in potential future legal action, and she suggested that it would probably reduce the City’s legal liability if the Council adopted the mediator’s ruling as its factual basis. Paul Harden, representing the Dixon family whose property surrounds the landlocked parcel in question, disagreed with the mediator’s interpretation of his role in the mediation process and suggested that the easement language is very clear and that the courts would be the proper venue to determine its legal enforceability. Mr. Harden also disagreed the Office of General Counsel’s characterization of this issue in the TEU Committee earlier in the week and said that he is in the process of meeting with council members individually to explain his client’s interests.
