ITEM 8: Siddons Martin Letter of Intent - The police department is budgeting for 2 new Tahoes in the 2020-21 budget. The 2021 Tahoes are being redesigned and the police model will not be released for almost a year later after the consumer model is released. Siddons Martin has two 2020 models in stock that they will hold for SHPD until the new budget begins in October if the city signs a letter of intent. The item would be contingent on Council’s approval of the 2020-21 budget. Council voted 5-0 to approve the letter of intent with the budget approval contingency.
ITEM 9: 2020-21 Budget Discussion- Council takes its first formal look at the complete proposed 2020-21 budget with discussion and questions of staff.

Council had the opportunity to ask staff questions regarding the proposed budget in these areas before they tackle the whole budget at their July 31 budget workshop. Several areas of clarification or additional needs of information were directed to staff for inclusion before the workshop. Discussion only.
