"That's a huge concern," Chief Tom Wfherf said. "Our projection is, if we ke(’[) going at this rate, by fhe enci of the' year we will be $111,IKK) over budget in overtime." Wilbert said th(' department is over its budget bet a use of the heavy man hours committed to polic ing th(' C'ornal River. As of Monday night, Wibi’rt said 1,201 t ifations havel>tH‘n written on the river so far this season, compart'd to 908 for the same period last season. But, the financial outlook isn't quite so bleak, said Deborah Korinchock, who is support service's director for the city and is responsible for accounting, budget and finances. Korinchm k said the city pays a high cost for clean and safe river activitiies. Thost' costs include, among other expt'ns-es, police regular and overtime pay, she said. A |)ortion of the budget to fund river activities comes from the city's general fund, Korint hock said. The rest, she said, comes from river fees collet ted frt)m tubing t)utfitters, shuttle permits, and fines and fees from citatit)ns pt)lice issue. The budgt'ts are develq3ed according tt) histt)ry, Kt)rinchock said. But those num- bers can always change. "It's pt)ssible we would generate mt)re revenue from fines and more frt)m activity from more ptH)ple t>eing;On the river;" she said. "But, at this pt)int, I can't tell you ht)w much that is." The city is nt)t in business tt) fine river users, Kt)rincht)t k said. But the money garnert'd is the byprtxiuct of maintaining a clean and safe river, she said. "Tht' river isn't generating enf)ugh mt)n-ey tt) pay ft)r the services prt)vided," she said. "But, as we increase services on the river tt) t ontinue tt) prt)vick? a safe envirt)n-ment and a clean environment, that impacts those numbers. Of ct)urse, our first toncern remains fo create that safe and cit'an environmt'nf." NAVIGATING THK SYSTEM WHAT CAN BE RECYCLED? HOW IS IT COLLECTED? WHAT ARE THE FEES?
