Ruston Budget Details

For the past few days, we’ve been reviewing Ruston’s Fiscal Year 2020 budget, effective 10/1/2019 through 9/30/2020.

Here are some of the significant items:

Police Department

The FY2020 budget allocates $4,747,814 for the year. This compares to a FY2019 original budget of $5,031,052. The projected actual spending for FY2019 is $4,882,789.

The fiscal year ends September 30, 2019.

Much of the reduction is in personnel services – salaries, overtime, retirement, insurance, etc.

The FY2020 budget allocates $3,820,243 for the year for personnel. This compares to a FY2019 original budget of $3,989,071. The projected actual spending for 2019 is $3,840,808.

Actual personnel services spending for 2017 and 2018 was $3,536,052 and $3,788,603, respectively.

Executive Department

This department shows a FY2020 total proposed budget of $2,646,641, compared to a proposed FY2019 amount of $2,294,022. Actual FY2019 spending is projected to be $2,492,629. FY2017 actual spending was $2,669,418, and for FY2018 it was $2,270,109.

Personnel Services for the department have been relatively constant – 2017 actual: $1,063,943, 2018 actual: $1,140,885, 2019 proposed: $1,160,084, and 2020 proposed: $1,144,056.

However, there is an item that was not budgeted for in 2019, “rent of building.” This item looks to be the culprit for the overage in 2019, and the 2020 increase.

FY2019 projects total spending in this line item to be $398,736. For FY2020, $235,062 is budgeted.

For FY2020, this department proposes $588,107 in spending. For FY2019, the original budgeted amount was $408,925. Projections are for FY2019 spending to actually be $434,506.

Personnel Services for this department are proposed to be $401,307 for FY2020, compared to FY2019’s budget of $204,425. Actual FY2019 personnel spending is projected at $174,503.
