DIRECTIONS FOR INTERACTIVE BUDGET MODULE
This module was designed to uphold and advance the administration's commitment to transparency,
accessibility, and civic engagement. We hope you find it user-friendly and informative. Here are some key
ideas to keep in mind as you interact with this budget module.

1. This is NOT the Mayor's proposed 2010 Budget. It is simply an instructional tool to engage residents in
the budget process and to give them a better understanding of how decisions impact the tax rate. Where
possible, we listed actual expenses for the 2010 Budget (contractual wage increases, debt payments, etc).
Otherwise, we projected as accurately as possible based on historical trends and information from other
governments (fuel, state aid, etc). The Mayor is scheduled to give his 2010 Budget Address Tuesday, August
11, 2009.

2. A video demonstration on how to use this budget will be broadcast regularly on public access channel
starting the week of May 18, and we thank Time Warner Cable for their cooperation and assistance. The
video will also be available online at the city's 2010 Interactive Budget dedicated webpage (see below).

3. The user can adjust ANY item highlighted in yellow. For instance, any position can be eliminated and
users can choose how much to allocate for facility repairs, workforce training, and other services or needs.
The module will also estimate savings in employee benefits based on the number and type of positions
eliminated from YOUR budget.

4. The user is encouraged to be practical, and we added department summaries so the user can better
understand how personnel cuts may impact service delivery. For instance, eliminating the engineering
department may reduce the tax burden, but it would come with a tremendous price, crippling capital
project design and infrastructure maintenance. So please be practical, and acknowledge that most cuts will
have consequences.

5. The City, through contract negotiations, has reached agreement with three unions on wage increases for
2010: Fire, Teamsters Supervisors, and CSEA. For this module, similar wage increases are projected for
Police and Teamsters Blue Collar. Though this tool allows users to see how wage adjustments would impact
the tax levy, please recognize that collective bargaining agreements are legally binding documents.

6. This tool also allows property owners to enter their assessed value and see how YOUR budget impacts
individual property tax bills. Please note these are estimates, since there are additional calculations
required to determine the exact Homestead and Non-Homestead rates.

7. There are five"tabs" in this excel file: the 2010 Interactive Budget; Directions; Department Summaries;
Personnel Totals 1992 - 2009; and Graphics. We've tried to create links to improve navigation, but feel free
to explore any aspect of this comprehensive module.

8. We recognize not all constituents have access to the internet. We welcome those without internet
access to make arrangements to use a City Hall public computer. Please call the Mayor's Office at 772
for this public service. NOTE: This convenience is not for general internet use, and is being offered
exclusively to provide access to this interactive tool.
exclusively to provide access to this interactive tool.

9. We are happy to answer any questions regarding this tool. Please call the Mayor's Office at 772
send an email to 2010budget@cityofbinghamton.com. We promise to reply in a timely manner.

10. You likely downloaded this from the city's website, but if not, please know that this module and other
supplemental materials are available for review on a dedicated webpage titled, "2010 Interactive Budget."

Go to www.cityofbinghamton.com, click "Finance" on the left side (under DEPARTMENTS), and you will see

Because the garbage bag fees have never once been raised, the Refuse Fund could cover fewer and fewer
positions, until finally, in 2007, all positions had to be transferred to General Fund.
The CDBG fund was coveringfour police officers, one dog control officer, and one zoning inspector--all of which
were questioned for eligibility in 2006 by City's HUD representative. These expenses were subsequently removed
from the CDBG budget and shifted back to the General Fund in 2007 to avoid possible penalties and fines.
