Account Summary

With the adoption of MGL, chapter 32B, sections 21 through 23 we were able to negotiate changes to the Health Insurance plans allowing us to keep the increase to 3 percent for the upcoming fiscal year. We are still considering other possible longer term changes including carrier changes, adding other plan options, possibly bargain employee portion percentage changes, and moving to the GIC. With the mid-year changes in place we decided not to increase the retiree HMO contribution for this fiscal year which we had done in the previous fiscal year, however, this will be reviewed again in the future.

It also reflects all promotions that resulted from retirements that occurred during the fiscal year and staffing levels remain the same. The department consists of 105 officers with 77 patrol officers and 27 superior officers led by Chief Kevin Molis and Commissioner Salvatore "Butch" Gennetti. In the Operating and Maintenance Costs, we increased the line item for Bulletproof Vests as we have a number of vests expiring and we are also leasing three new vehicles which we will own after the third year.

Account Summary

The proposed budget includes the annualization of a 2.5 percent salary adjustment provided to all non-union and union employees in Fiscal Year 2018. The staffing levels remain the same with 27 positions, however, we suggest converting a vacant supervisor position to Assistant Director which will help now that the Public Works and Water Utility Departments are merged. We also recommend converting a vacant HMEO to a Solid Waste Coordinator who will soley work on JRM matters. In Operating and Maintenance Costs, we added $25,000 for tree plantings. With all the road work happening throughout the city, we want to make sure we have an account that can be used for replanting of trees that have to be removed as part of the project. We also zeroed out the ROCA Work Crew as their model has changed and they are no longer providing this service.

Account Summary

The proposed budget decreases primarily due to a withdrawal from the Salary Reserve to pay recently settled contracts and a cost of living adjustment to our non-union employees. The Northeast Regional Vocational School Assessment drops by nearly $100,000 as less Malden students are projected to attend in the new school year.

Community Preservation Act Fund - $667,700

About the Community Preservation Act Fund

The Community Preservation Act (Massachusetts General Laws chapter 44b, or "CPA" ) allows local communities to adopt a surcharge on property taxes and receive state matching funds for affordable housing, historic resources, open space and recreation land. The citizens of Malden adopted the CPA in November 2015 with a 1% local surcharge which is then placed into a separate fund. A 9-member committee reviews projects and submits them to the Mayor who in turn proposes which projects should be funded to the City Council.

Julianne Orsino, Chairperson

Malden, MA 02148
Telephone: 339-221-0583

Account Summary

The total budget is $1.9M which represents the amounts generated in Fiscal Years 2017 and 2018 not being expended. This is due to the Community Preservation Committee spending the first few years establishing their rules and regulations. The process is now unfolding with project pre-applications being accepted and as such an administrative assistant is being included to support the committee.

Account Summary

The PEG Access and Cable Related Enterprise Fund was created in Fiscal Year 2018. Prior to its creation, the City accounted for these funds in a special revenue account. The only real change being proposed in Fiscal Year 2019 is that the PEG content production associate is being moved to a different role within the city and we will continue to utilize this employee on a part-time basis to ensure public meetings are televised on MATV.

Account Summary

The proposed budget includes the annualization of a 2.5 percent salary adjustment provided to all non-union and union employees in Fiscal Year 2018. The proposed budget also fully funds the 3 percent increase in Massachusetts Water Resources Authority water and sewer assessments and otherwise funds minimal incremental year-over-year increases in operating and personnel costs. We also propose maintaining like we did in Fiscal Year 2018 a Lead Line Replacement Program item in the amount of $750,000. This will help us continue replacing lead lines throughout the city and remain in compliance with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection mandates.
