Revision to GRU’s FY21 Budget Calendar (B)



At the December 5, 2019 meeting, the City Commission approved GRU's proposed budget calendar.  The first two workshops were scheduled for January 28th and February 25th.  Subsequent to the Commission's approval of the budget calendar, staff presented item number 190804 - GRU's Generation Transition Plan 2020-2022 - at the January 16, 2020 Commission meeting.  The Commission felt that they and the public needed time to review the plan further in a workshop setting and staff offered to use the January 28th budget workshop date for that purpose. 

The budget material that staff had planned to discuss in the February 25th workshop was designed to build upon the material that would have been discussed in the January 28th workshop.  Given those circumstances, GRU is requesting that the February 25th workshop be cancelled and the material for both January 28th and February 25th be discussed in the April 21st budget workshop.  If approved, the revised calendar will follow the schedule below.

April  21, 2020, 3:00-5:00 p.m. - Budget Process & Philosophy; O&M and Capital, Sales, Customer & Revenue Forecast; and Debt Service, Cash and Liquidity

May  13, 2020, 5:00-7:00 p.m. - Budget Open Topics

May 26, 2020, 4:00-6:00 p.m. - Fuels and first review of rates

June  16, 2020, 3:00-5:00 p.m. - Special meeting to approve the GRU budget prior to the readings of the Budget Ordinance in September.
