Clarksville City Budget Session Highlights Continued


City of ClarksvilleClarksville, TN – Transportation – City Bus Service – The Transportation Department has a proposed FY 2012 budget of $5,227,826.  Of that amount, $682,150,00 would come from fares and other revenue.  Federal input is around $1.9 million, state input around $792K and a Jobs Access grant of $400K.  The remaining money would come from the city in the amount of $1.43 million.

In general, the Transportation budget is funded 47% Federal, 19% State and 34% Local.  Transportation is asking for about a $334,000 increase from last year.  Ridership is at record levels and the last fare increase was in 2007.  Ridership should be at or over 800,000 before the current budget year is out.  In May 2011 ridership was 66,262 versus 51,951 in May 2010.  Based on great ridership and that the last fare increase was almost 5 years ago, I believed that fares should be increased to offset the cost increase. «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan’s letter regarding the FY2012 Budget


Clarksville Office of the Mayor - Kim McMillan

June 9, 2011


Dear Council Members and Citizens of Clarksville:

 The budget process provides an annual opportunity to examine the City’s performance and our community’s economic health.  Through the budget process, we have the ability to review what we did right and wrong in the current budget, assess our strengths and weaknesses, and plan for future opportunities and challenges that face the community of Clarksville.  As your new Mayor, I have stated that my Administration will be transparent and open about our priorities and goals and that I will keep both the City Council and our citizens apprised of the City’s ongoing projects and our financial condition.  Despite serving 12 years on the Tennessee House Finance, Ways and Means Committee and having a good understanding of governmental accounting, I think you can appreciate that with an overall City budget in excess of $418 million in one of the fastest growing Cities in Tennessee, that it has taken a few months for me to review all the areas included in the City’s budget.  Therefore this budget will serve not only as the annual budget, but as my first update on the status of City projects and City finances. «Read the rest of this article»
