    EID Board Adopts 2012 Operating Budget

    At its November 14 meeting, the El Dorado Irrigation District Board of Directors adopted the 2012 mid-cycle operating budget in the amount of $42.970 million. In accordance with board policy, the board adopts a two-year budget and conducts a mid-cycle review to determine any changes that may be needed in the second year of the cycle. Mark Price, EID’s finance director, reported that the 2012 operating expense budget was nearly flat compared to the 2011 adopted budget and is $1.1 million less than the previously adopted second year of the 2011–2012 biennial budget. According to Price, staff had many challenges in developing a flat 2012 operating budget revision. “Increased personnel costs, due to the expiration of wage and benefit concessions bargained for with the employees’ association for 2010 and 2011, as well as a 3.5 percent increase to the employer’s PERS contribution are among the reasons for the challenge,” said Price. “Additionally, the district’s expected property tax revenue
