New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 16, 2007, New Braunfels, Texas Page 2A-Herald-Zeitung-Wednesday, May 16, 2007 Council focuses on effective management of city resources During the past few weeks, I have discussed the strategic priorities of the city council, ranging from quality of life to public safety. Another priority the council has established is to have effective management. While perhaps not as interesting as the other priorities, effective management hits at the core of what should be of most concern to every citizen how well your tax dollars are being managed. During the past year, we have made great strides in the city's financial management. The budget process was changed to allow a better understanding of the city's revenue and expenditures. Instead of isolating some income resources we now incorporate all resources in the budget process. This gives us BRUCEBOVEW Bruce Bayer is the mayor of New Braun-fels. He can be reached at [email protected] a broader, yet more effective business plan. Hopefully any cit izen can now review the budget document and understand how the city's funds are being spent. In the past, replacement of equipment, technology and major building systems wer budgeted only as the particular item failed. We now have established reserves that will allow us to replace equipment on a more predictable basis and will reduce the impact on our annual budget process. This step will make our replacement expenditures more manageable, while ensuring that we can replace critical equipment (for example police vehicles) in a timely fashion. In response to the city's growth and increasing complexity, we have added a full time purchasing manager. This position has resulted in overall significant savings by increasing our ability to find the best value when we are making necessary purchases. The city also has revamped our investment process, which has resulted in our receiving a higher rate of return on our investments. Keeping our citizens informed is critical. To that end, we are revamping the city's Web site to make it more usefiil to the public. There are many issues considered by the Texas Legislature that have a direct impact on the city of New Braunfels. The council has established a legislative program specific to New Braunfels for the current legislative session. To assist us in that effort, for the first time the city has secured the services of a legislative consultant to work on our behalf in Austin. We are very optimistic that we will be seeing positive results. In addition, there are many opportunities at the federal level to secure funding for priority projects. A well coordinated, economical program in Washington can result in great return to our community. A legislative consultant has been engaged to assist New Braunfels in effectively working with our congressional delegation. The city manager and I recently visited our delegation in Washington to seek assistance on numerous projects important to our city. Our effort already has had an impact with Congressman Lamar Smith's commitment to help secure funding for a new fire station. ^ The citizens of New Braunfels can be confident that their tax dollars are being managed well and that we are aggressively doing all that we can to develop additional resources to assist us in funding much needed improvements in our community.
