La Cañada Flintridge is facing the end of the current fiscal year with a "cautious" outlook after mid-year figures released Monday show the city spending more than it is bringing in. Expenditures versus revenues are upside down by $38,540. The year before, revenues outstripped expenditures by $752,877. City Manager Mark Alexander called the year-end outlook "cautious", and said the city's overall financial situation "fair." He said the six-month revenue figure was $2.85 million, 41.4 percent of the total projected for the year.

On a 3-2 vote, the La Cañada Unified School District Governing Board approved Tuesday night adjustments to both the 2008-09 summary of revenue and expenditures and the $33.8 million budget for the current school year. The board members dissenting on the vote were President Joel Peterson and Cindy Wilcox. The latter said she needed more time to study the budget before sending it to the county Office of Education by the Sept. 15 deadline, while Peterson objected to the fact it does not reflect estimated projections of future staff layoffs.

A recovering economy and the openings of new businesses along Foothill Boulevard were credited this week by officials for a boost of nearly 16% in sales tax revenue to the city during the first half of its fiscal year. “I think broadly more people are comfortable spending money when the economy seems to be getting better on the macro level, and on the micro level, we do have a lot more retail development along Foothill Boulevard,” said Daniel Jordan, the city's director of finance.

A forced three-day closure due to damage caused by the Nov. 30 windstorm resulted in a $30,000 loss in revenue to Descanso Gardens, officials there announced Tuesday. The facility, which suffered the loss of six trees, several uprooted plants and damaged irrigation systems, was closed Dec. 1-Dec. 3 due to the clean-up that was required, as well as to an extended power outage. “Fortunately, Descanso Gardens largely escaped serious damage and loss from the windstorm event, re-opening to the community Sunday morning, December 4, with partial power.

While other cities in the county operate on a deficit, La Cañada Flintridge remains financially stable. Seven months into the fiscal year that began July 1, the city picked up more than $1 million in sales tax revenue - a 5% increase compared to the same time last year. City officials said last week it's a sign that the retail sector is improving after the recession. “We are actually in a better position for the end of the year because the portion that was up is the tax revenue,” said Finance Director Daniel Jordan, “and that is back-loaded into the second portion of the year.” Overall, this year's budget was slightly higher because of better economic conditions.

So far this fiscal year, the city has seen a net increase of $202,875 in general fund revenue and has spent $1,450 less than it was expecting to when the City Council passed the budget last June. But, with new projects on the books - including the construction of sound walls along the Foothill (210) Freeway, maintenance upgrades at Lanterman Auditorium and a project to prevent rock slides on Foothill Boulevard - the city must adjust its projections upward to the tune of $250,450.

It would be difficult to guess, from the serene exterior of La Cañada Flintridge's City Hall building, at the multitude of daily activities and decisions a single year in the life of a city requires.

A quick look at some of the key figures driving revisions to the city budget on Thursday might leave a person wondering whether the economic recession is behind us, at least in La Cañada Flintridge.

Despite anticipated budget shortfalls for the Los Angeles County library system of roughly $22 million a year over the next 10 years, its popular branches in La Cañada Flintridge and La Crescenta will be shielded from reduced hours or services in the coming years, the county's top librarian said. On Nov. 30, county Librarian Margaret Donnellan Todd submitted a report to the Board of Supervisors warning that declining revenues could force cuts over the next decade in order to avoid millions of dollars in deficit spending through 2020.

The record 100-day wait for the state budget is over, but concerns still remain for school districts across California, including La Cañada Unified. California school districts were required to budget for the financial year in June, but since the Legislature submitted its budget three months late, districts were forced to base their plans on assumptions of how many dollars they might receive from the state. "Think of an airplane that takes off, and once it's in the air, it finds out how much fuel it has," La Cañada Supt.
