About the Assessor's Department

The Assessor’s Department is responsible for determining the value of real and personal property in the City of Malden for the purpose of taxation.

Account Summary

The initial proposal to shift the Cemetery Department's funding off-budget to the Perpetual Care Interest account could no longer occur due to the interest being transferred to the Perpetual Care Principal account during our most recent reconciliation. Massachusetts law does not allow for these funds to be used for sustaining annual budget costs. We also had to account for the portion of interest that was being utilized by the department before the funds were transferred to the principal account. That amount is prorated to cover expenses up until the interest can be used again which we estimate to be sometime in 2017.

Account Summary

This account decreases just less than 1% which reflects some 5 year debt that matured and came off the debt schedule and reduced interest costs from aging debt. Both of these were somewhat offset by new debt incurred in support of the project to construct a new police station and city hall. The reduction also reflects no anticipated Bond Anticipation Note (BAN) interest for FY2017.

Account Summary

The adopted budget reflects all promotions resulting from Chief Jack Colangeli's recent retirement. The new budget also reduces the current force by one vacant position to 108 firefighters and the overtime account was both reduced in the original proposal and the adopted plan to help with the city's overall budget deficit. There was also a technical change in the Operating and Maintenance Costs with Building Maintenance and QED Reporting Software increasing $2,500 each and Mask Repairs decreased by the same amount. This was done to more accurately reflect the costs within these categories. Finally, Emery Haskell was appointed Commissioner to replace Tom Denehy who resigned in FY2016.

Account Summary

This account will increase 13.5 percent which reflects anticipated claims increases over FY2016 of about 8% and additional funds needed to cover the one time FY2015 to FY2016 positive claims experience that helped contain the FY2016 budget. While we continue to see positive results due in large part to our employee health and wellness program with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, claims are up across the board in other municipal plans and this trend is expected to continue.

The proposed budget for this department was originally level-funded but we have since decided to transfer our costs of $51,000 for ongoing labor issues and contract negotiations with an outside firm to the Human Resources Department (HR) to be managed by that department. This will assist HR with other areas of employment matters including unemployment issues, personnel policies and procedures.

Account Summary

The adopted budget contains reclassifications. First, Yan Yu's former full-time position was split into two part-time positions with no benefits. Our recommendation to move Kevin Duffy, Strategy and Business Development Officer to Permits, Inspections, and Planning Services to help with the significant increase in permit requests did not make it to the adopted budget. Additionally, Paul Hammersley, Online Services and Communications Specialist is moved off-budget to a reconfigured Cable Access Fund. There, Mr. Hammersley will work in collaboration with Malden Access Television due to the increasing amount of public meetings being taped and publicized for the community. In between the proposed and adopted versions of the budget, it was determined to further evaluate the initial recommendation to move Kevin Duffy, Strategy and Business Development Officer to Permits, Inspections, and Planning Services. Additionally, a portion of the Communications Director's salary was placed in reserve in the hopes that we can consolidate the various IT functions by January of 2017.

About Pine Banks Park

Pine Banks Park is a 107.5 acre public park located in both Malden and Melrose. The park was bequeathed to both cities by the first Mayor of Malden, Elisha S.

Account Summary

The increases above the statutory required amount in this account include the payback of the capital repairs for the various fields throughout the park. This year, the budget will help pay for the resurfacing of the field known as RF1 which is nearly 15 years old as well as a new dog park. The new artificial turf will benefit many groups including youth soccer, lacrosse, and Pop Warner. There is an increase in the budget for the maintenance of the fields that were recently rehabilitated and for the replacement of the former Superintendent who recently retired. All costs are split equally with the City of Melrose and the budget is subject to a vote by the Board of Trustees.

Account Summary

The adopted budget for this department contains staffing levels of 105 officers with 77 patrol officers, 27 superior officers and a Chief. The budget also absorbs a vacant police cadet position and a patrol officer's position who participated in the voluntary Personnel Reduction Incentive Program. The overtime account was reduced by $175K to help with the city's overall budget deficit. There was also a technical change in the Operating and Maintenance Costs with Prisoner Meals and Dues and Memberships increasing $2,500 each and Operating Costs decreased by the same amount. This was done to more accurately reflect the costs within these two categories. Finally, in between the proposed and adopted versions, a portion of the System Network Administrator's salary and corresponding IT expenses was placed in reserve in the hopes that we can consolidate the various IT functions by January of 2017.

Account Summary

The adopted budget remains the same from when the proposed budget was submitted. The department is level-funded except for an increase in the maintenance of school buildings to reflect the work needed to address the schools that are now nearly 20 years old. The Building Maintenance and the Gas and Light Costs are decreased due to City Hall coming offline this summer to make way for the redevelopment of the site.

Account Summary

The adopted budget contains staffing levels of 27 as was the case in FY2016. Also, the department's Operating and Maintenance Costs were increased to reflect the provisions of our solid waste contract with JRM, Inc. In addition, the increase in the concrete line reflects the amount needed to help address a backlog of sidewalk repairs. Finally, the adopted budget includes the increase of $40,000 contained within the amended budget due to an inadvertent error where we left out funds from two line items in the Operating and Maintenance Costs that were meant to be collapsed and forgot to add $11,000 needed for the scheduled maintenance of all our turf fields.

Account Summary

This adopted budget mirrored the proposed budget with funds transferred from the yet-to-be-implemented Senior Work Off Program to the Senior Transportation Program. This was to ensure that this service was fully funded. The budget also moves $13,000 from Council on Aging to the Administrative Costs to fund a vacant driver position which transports seniors from various points around Malden to the Senior Center. It's a technical change and cost-neutral.

Account Summary

To address last year's budget deficit, we took advantage of the change in state law that allowed cities and towns like ours to amortize 2015's snow and ice removal costs over a period of three years. Therefore, $581,039 is the figure that we will need to carry in 2017 and 2018 plus that year's snow storm costs. Thanks to a mild winter, we only incurred an additional 450K which was key to balancing the FY2017 budget.

Account Summary

There were no changes from the proposed budget to the adopted budget. The account is decreased by nearly 8.5 percent due to a vacancy being deleted and the Operating and Maintenance Costs line item being zeroed out to help reduce the city's overall budget deficit. These costs will be addressed through grant opportunities and the fundraising efforts of the Board of Directors. The budget does, however, account for a 2.5 percent increase in rent.

Account Summary

This account contains several line items from FY2016 that are not funded as the city continues to work to reduce its operating account expenses. However, we have no control over the Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational School Assessment which increased nearly 9 percent. The Salary Reserve figure had to include a 53rd week of salary in the new fiscal year along with monies due for prior unsettled collective bargaining agreements. Lastly, this category reflects the cost from the personnel reduction incentive program the city offered to its employees. This voluntary program ended on Friday, May 27th and we had three employees opt to participate. As a result, the costs have been updated to reflect the actual figure involved and the savings are reflected in the affected departments.

Account Summary

The adopted budget fully funds the increase in Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) water and sewer assessments and otherwise funds minimal incremental year over year increases in operating and personnel costs. In a technical move, we transferred Substitute Longevity and Sick Bonus from Operating and Maintenance Costs to Labor Salaries in an effort to more accurately reflect the actual costs of these items.
