6. Monthly Financials (J. Onzick)

Monthly financial reports were included in the agenda packet. Referencing a presentation not included in the agenda packet, Finance Exec. Dir. Onzick reported as of October, the gap between the proposed 2020 General Fund budget for revenue and expenses was successfully closed. The draft was placed on public display on October 24, 2019 prior to the deadline. Onzick discussed the reductions to the requested expense budgets, noting Judiciary & Courts, Sheriff and Court Services are pending allocations. This may be due to timing of the deadline submission. The total 2020 General Fund Budget Summary of revenue and expenditure demonstrated an overall increase of 4.9% in comparison to 2019.

Onzick compared the 2020 property tax levies to 2019. The 1.3% increase in the Property Tax Levy request is a result of increases in the General Fund including Insurance Liability, IMRF, FICA/Social Security and new construction. A tax levy resolution will allow

a reduction request to match the increase of the new construction in February 2020. Regarding the offset of the Children’s Waiting Room fund and the Court Security fees, as previously discussed, a resolution will be presented to adjust the allocations to restore the original balance of funds.

7. Monthly Community Outreach Report (R. Nagel)

Referencing a presentation not included in the agenda packet, Community Outreach Coordinator Nagel shared Kane County Connects (KCC) readership statistics for the month of October. To date, KCC has reached 4.7M page views since the beginning of the program with 125,000 page views for October alone. Another record of 6,000 Facebook followers was also reported. Nagel discussed the various acts of participation from the Board members. Providing story ideas, family history within the community and photos of events have been a success. Brief discussion occurred.
