Other items of interest.

Based on a request of former Councilman Robert Wittenstein to have the city post Council expense reports to the web, I asked staff to prepare the report and this document was generated attempting to satisfy the request.  Staff pulled all expenses through August, the general requests for reimbursement as allowed by the Charter as well as other miscellaneous expenses that are required by Council to operate including Liability Insurance, Governmental Training and other items benefiting the community but which are not tied back to a specific council-member's formal expense account.   There were concerns over the format of the report being confusing but in the end it was decided to provide all data and not just the expenses requested for reimbursement that the Charter allows.

Based on a few emails that I have received and the Alarm Registration program being in effect for over one year, at the last meeting I requested a recap of the program (and believe that Councilwoman Deutsch requested as well, as staff was already working on it).  Here are the stats on the Alarm Registration Program.

Frankly, I am not the least bit alarmed at how councilmembers might be spending their $3K per year, or the Mayor's $5K per year expense accounts. Not to mention that the salaries seem more "token" than "compensatory".
Move along - nothing to see here.
