Attached you will find a more detailed hypothetical 2017 City Clerk Budget for Long Beach. You will notice that there are additional line-items under Salaries, Wages and Benefits and Materials, Supplies and Services. These additional line-items were taken from the Pico Rivera 2017 City Clerk Budget. The percentage for each of the line-items in the attached LB City Clerk Budget is similar to the Pico Rivera percentages. All four major category totals Salaries, Wages and Benefits; overtime (not necessary a major category but separated from Salaries, Wages and Benefits in LB); Materials, Supplies and Services; and Internal support match the LB 2017 City Clerk Budget and the Total Expenditure matches. This attached budget would then serve as my Base Budget and spreadsheet for the LB 2017 City Clerk Budget.
REMEMBER, THIS IS SPREADSHEET AND BUDGETING EXERCISE; YOUR LINE-ITEMS UNDER EACH OF THE MAJOR CATEGORIES DON’T HAVE TO BE EXACT, JUST REASONABLE. For example, under Salaries, Wages and Benefits the Auto Allowance will not be larger than the PER contribution.
There must be a total of 3 excel spread sheets. Must be on time. No grammatical errors, proper graduate level English. 3rd person language is acceptable.
