|The FY13 utility budget anticipates water revenues of $81,000 and expenditures of $70,072 from both the administration and water utility; wastewater budget line item states expected revenues of $73,000 and expenditures of $39,242. The remaining funds are entered in a repair and replacement account. The City of Cold Bay has three accounts into which excess funds are placed; one is used to cover any deficits and the others are used for repair and replacement accounts.
The public works director is the water operator, wastewater operator, and general maintenance worker. The public works director provides a monthly written report of the water plant, wastewater plant, dock, landfill, and city maintenance.
The city gets power from G and K, Inc. and is in the process of releasing the payment for the most current bill. Due to funding, a full time clerk is not feasible, but a temporary clerk should be established to provide normal office hours to the public when the administrator/clerk is out of town.
Fuel is purchased from Frosty Fuels, a subsidiary of the Aleut Corporation, which provides fuel for commercial and residential use. The city does have funds to cover fuel cost for city facilities and equipment. |
