The Trenton Park Board has approved a budget for the fiscal year beginning May 1st that does not contain money for salary increases.

However, it was noted the budget could be amended later to include an increase in pay. Such consideration would be after compensation to City of Trenton and Trenton Municipal Utilities workers is determined.

Although the Board of Public Works budget includes a 3% increase in funds for each department for salary increases, the City Council has the final say on the Board of Public Works budget.

The Park Board's budget will be forwarded to the City Council as a courtesy, although the Park Board has the final say on its budget.

The financial plan estimates revenue at $532,000 and spending at nearly $528,000. That would leave a surplus for the fiscal year of $4,400. The anticipated spending and revenues are both less than what was budgeted in the last 4 years.

The largest budgeted expense is nearly $148,000 toward money still owed on the construction of the Family Aquatic Center.

The next highest expense is for labor at $71,000. Part-time wages are budgeted at
nearly $60,000 at the pool and $29,000 in the parks. Health insurance is listed at $18,000. There are lesser amounts for retirement, social security, workers compensation, and overtime costs.

Among other costs, utilities are budgeted at nearly $27,000 at the pool and nearly $24,000 in the parks. Supplies are listed around $18,000 for the parks and also around $18,000 at the pool. Equipment repairs and maintenance are budgeted at $18,000 for the parks, but just $1,000 for the pool.

Budgeted revenues include $340,000 in sales taxes, nearly $88,000 in property taxes,
$57,000 in pool receipts, nearly $13,000 in pool concessions, and $13,000 in TBA proceeds.

The Park Department had a balance of funds of around $221,000 as of the end of February.

In the only other action, the Park Board approved a request for the Trenton Soccer Stars program to use the old Griffin Field area again this year. Soccer games are planned on the first 4 Sundays of June. We'll have more on the soccer program on later newscasts.

Donations are being sought for the replacement of the flag pole at the World War I Memorial at Moberly Park.

Persons wishing to donate are asked to contact Park Board President, Don Altes, any other Park Board member, or Parks Superintendent, Jason Shuler. $3,000 is being sought for the pole. An existing flag pole was blown down during a windstorm.

Park Board member, Gary Schuett, said Rosemary Tree Farm west of Trenton donated a
Celebration maple tree to the Park Department. Schuett thanked the Park Department for planting the tree. The department also was thanked for helping Schuett clean up Sesquicentennial Park.

Schuett noted Trenton has again been designated a Tree City USA. The Trenton Park Department, the Street Department, and Trenton Municipal Utilities were recognized as helping in the process to maintain the designation.
