City of Chicago :: City Estimates $65 Million Carry Over Into 2011; Smaller 2012 Budget Gap Due To Revenue, Savings And Management Improvements
www.cityofchicago.org, 6 May 2011 [cached]
Budget Director Eugene Munin announced that the City will carry over $65 million from 2010 to 2011, a larger unreserved fund balance than he announced last month due to additional savings realized in the City's ongoing financial audits. It will be the largest year-end reserve in a decade.
He also said that the City expects to save nearly $85 million for the remainder of 2011 as a result of the continuing savings from the hiring freeze and a reduction in healthcare and non-personnel expenses. Munin had previously announced $45 million worth of those savings.
Munin also predicted that the budget gap between revenue and expenses would shrink for the 2012 budget by about 10 percent from the $655 million 2011 gap announced last summer.
"Looking forward into next year, and as a result of the modest increases in economically sensitive taxes and cuts on the expense side of the budget, we are currently projecting the 2012 budget gap to be approximately $587 million," Munin said.
...
Munin and Saffold said that they have been meeting with the transition team for the next administration over the past several weeks, offering ideas and insight to where the City might be able to further reduce the cost of government, demand more from every employee, and limit the impact of this recession on taxpayers.
...
Munin said that for the first few months of 2011, economically sensitive revenues continue to come in at about level with the conservative projections made during the budget preparation last fall.
"While these revenue results and expense reductions are encouraging, they are by no means the total answer to our financial difficulties," Munin said. "Even with these results, we remain at 2004 revenue levels while operating a government that has 2011-level expenses."
With the first two months of collections, Munin said 2011 amusement taxes are exceeding budget expectations by about 4.4%, or roughly $750,000.
The year-to-date Real Property Transfer Tax receipts are up approximately 11% from this time last year. However, Munin said the City must remain cautious and there are seasonal factors that effect home sales.
...
Munin said that he expects to see sales tax receipts continue to improve over the coming months.
Income Tax is also fairly even with projections. Munin said, however, that the State was considering withholding income tax payments to municipalities while the legislature debates the proposed borrowing plan.
"This is a bad idea, and it is unfair to local government," he said, adding that he has sent a letter to the State Budget Director outlining Chicago's objection to this plan.

The City of Chicago responded today to the Inspector General Office's (lGO) report regarding motor truck drivers and the collective bargaining process. 'The GO report suffers from a fundamental lack of understanding of the nature of collective bargaining, the laws governing union-employer relations, and the dynamics of the negotiation process," said Eugene L. Munin, City of Chicago Budget Director.
The City stated that the IGO's recommendations with respect to changes in collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) such as limiting the duration of CBAs, and prohibiting the negotiation of interim agreements, would all severely hamstring the City's flexibility in negotiations, and its ability to work with the unions to respond to operational needs as they arise. "Had the IGO's office any substantive knowledge of the contracts or talked to those with knowledge, they would know that COUPE agreements, including Teamsters, do contain contract reopening provisions in several areas," Munin added.
Munin pointed out that, on the most fundamental level, merely shortening thelength of a contract does not impact the City's ability to achieve efficiencies.
"The suggestion to track CBA's along the terms of elected officials would also unnecessarily politicize the union negotiation process. In fact, we think it is a totally irresponsible and naive suggestion that would greatly empower employee unions to push candidates to protect union benefits, instead of protecting taxpayers," said Munin.
He also said the report completely ignores or is apparently unaware of the numerous gains in collective bargaining the administration has made over the years, with the cooperation of the unions, providing the City with enhanced operational flexibility, and in response to financial pressures on the City's budget. It also fails to recognize the comprehensive, ongoing analysis that the City's OBM and operating departments do undertake throughout the negotiation process.
Munin said the "traditional work' clause, which is referred to in much of the report, is not just common to City CBAs, but is virtually universal in collective bargaining.
...
"In reality, these side letters do constitute an 'opening' of the contract, and any person with institutional knowledge of labor agreements knows that side letters typically benefit management" added Munin.

BUDGET DIRECTOR EUGENE MUNIN
The city of Chicago's recent budget woes are well-documented. Revenues from the real estate transfer tax, income tax, and the sales tax have plummeted significantly as the city and this nation attempt to recover from the recession and the job losses, foreclosures and cuts in disposable income it has left behind. It will take a person that can make tough budgeting decisions to help
weather this financial storm. In addition, it will take a leader with a healthy dose of creativity and vision to lead Chicago into a more secure financial future. Last year, Mayor Daley saw these characteristics in Eugene Munin, and upon city council approval, he joined the top brass of city hall as its newest Budget Director. n this role, Mr. Munin manages the city's Annual Appropriation Ordinance (Budget Ordinance) which currently stands at $6.2 billion, the Community Development Block Grant Ordinance (CDBG) which administers approximately $90 million to fund programs for low-income residents who need job training and placement, and the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) which is the forecast for how the city will spend money for infrastructure improvements, facilities improvements and up-keep as well as other plans for economic development. The CIP is a five-year plan with a $10 billion budget. r. Munin is no novice at handling the city's finances. From 1994-2006, he worked in several positions in the city's budget office, but most notably as Assistant Budget Director and Deputy Budget Director before leaving to become General Counsel of the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA).
I recently sat down with Mr. Munin to discuss his plans for the department, and to gain some insight into how the retail industry will play a role in the city's budget. As he works to implement the mayor's vision for a sound and balanced budget, he gladly gave us a glimpse into the city's current financial predicament and shared his thoughts about the city's financial future.
...
Mr. Munin has a tough job ahead of him, but has proven that he is up to the unique challenges that being the Budget Director of one of the country's largest municipal budgets presents.
