MONTHLY FINANCE REPORT:

Executive Director of Finance Paul Wesch:

“Good morning. This is not strictly financial in nature, but the Mayor called this morning and thought you might want to hear this. You may know that Carnival has been exceeding all of their expectations and ours also by being at about 117% of capacity in their sailings through this time.

Carnival has been operating four (4) and five (5) day cruises that begin here and depending upon the length of the cruise they travel to Mexican ports; Progresso and Cozumel primarily. Many people have been asking Carnival to consider some more lengthy cruises that might take in other ports. Carnival is announcing today, through their network of agents, that they are going to be experimenting with cruises that last seven (7) and eleven days and go outside of Mexico to other ports of call including the Panama Canal and Key West. We have a lot to hope for. We hope those cruises are successful. It looks like Carnival is happy enough to be experimenting in a very good way.”

Councilmember Gregory:

“Did the Mayor tell you what the timeline would be on when this would start?”

Mr. Wesch:

“It’s starting immediately. They are experimenting with some shorter cruises that have more days at sea, some alternatives that don’t involve additional ports. The ports that I mentioned to you will begin in November 2018, which means Carnival has started expanding their schedule beyond our contract.”

Mr. Wesch:

“In the financial report it’s been good news and bad news to this point. The bad news is revenues are not where they need to be primarily because of failure of sales taxes to get to where we had projected hey would be. Sales taxes are actually about $3.3 million under projections at this point. Christmas was very damaging for sales taxes. We were about $1.8 million under projections and $1 million under 2016 Christmas. That means people are doing much more shopping online during holiday periods. For the rest of the year so far we’ve seen smaller drops in sales taxes. It’s liable to continue; at least that’s what we’re starting to be able to project.”

“The good news is that departmental expenditures have stayed in line. We’ve been trying to keep a lid on hiring and over-time and a lot of the manageable expenditures side of things. One of the brightest spots is what has happened because of the Council and Mayor’s commitment to maintaining a better fleet; police cars, fire trucks, the things that wear out quickly. It’s almost invisible if you don’t replace them, but if you don’t you start experiencing tremendous costs in terms of replacements of engines and things of that nature. We brought the garage budget down a couple of millions of dollars because of the upgrades in fleet. So far this year they are travelling another $1.5 million under budget. They are quickly becoming not so much a garage, but a manager of maintenance contracts and managers of all of the items in the fleets making sure they get replaced on time and they don’t become tremendously expensive for us to maintain.”

“Now that we see probably where we are heading for 2017 we are starting the 2018 budget process with departmental meetings with Celia will begin next week. We hope to have the budget made in plenty of time to take care of any adjustments we see because of what happens in May and June. I’d be happy to answer any questions.”

Councilmember Daves:

“I really don’t have any questions for Mr. Wesch Madam President. I would just like to say I had an opportunity to discuss the revenue situation very briefly with Mr. Wesch this morning. We determined that it would be a good idea to have a Finance Committee meeting in the near future in order for the committee to get a little better understanding of the trends in our revenue especially as we come up to the 2018 budget cycle. An environment where we have declining revenues presents challenges in terms of the upcoming budget. Sometime in the next several weeks we will ask to call a Finance Committee meeting to spend a little more time on this issue.”
