COUNCIL BUDGET MESSAGE The Anthem Community Council (ACC) is pleased to present the 2021 Operating Fund Budget, with NO increase to ACC assessments. Separate and apart from ACC assessments, the per-unit benefited assessment for Paseo Townhomes will increase $2.50/month, as noted in the 2020 budget analysis, in order to fund reserves. This document serves as a brief overview of the 2021 budget, which was presented and discussed at two open Board meetings. The 2021 Operating Budget reflects the Board’s strategic priorities by providing for: the continuation of high-quality services and facilities; continuation of involvement with community partners; advocacy for Anthem on public safety and other issues impacting the community; implementation of Facilities Master Plan projects; and strengthening and stabilizing staffing to position the organization for future success. While budgeting for 2021, staff took into consideration both 2020 and 2019 actuals, because there were so many 2020 variables resulting from COVID-19 impacts. We anticipate a full recovery in 2021; but from experience, we know that we are capable of making required adjustments if needed or mandated by public health guidelines. The following major cost factors impacted the 2021 budget: the fifth consecutive year of mandatory minimum wage increases; an increase in major service contracts; operating costs associated with new amenities; executive staff restructuring; ongoing proposed water rate increases; and other inflationary costs. Even with these cost factors, the total operating costs will decrease 3% or $324,000, as staff has trimmed numerous line items. The 2021 Budget includes a transfer of $1,904,800 to the Reserve Fund to maintain its fully funded status. An estimated $943,500 will be transferred to the Enhancement Fund from new enhancement fees (1/4-of-1% of the price of each resold home) received in 2021. The last ACC assessment increase was $6/month, effective in January 2014, which means that 2021 will be the seventh budget year that the ACC has operated under that assessment rate. Although the 2021 budget shows a deficit of $685,000, the deficit will be covered by carry-forward operating surplus. However, with cumulative cost pressures, it will be prudent and necessary for the ACC to evaluate the need for an assessment increase after 2021, in order to maintain the high-quality facilities, programs and services in our award-winning community.
