  3. Executive Director’s Report`
    1. Patrick Dostine stated that based upon the city’s monthly financial report for the 10 months ending April 30, 2020, the city continues to implement its comprehensive response necessary due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
    2. In addition, the city is making its scheduled payments to the retirement protection fund and debt obligations. Also, the city is taking a budget amendment for FY 20 to city council where it is anticipated to pass. The budget amendment was unanimously supported in the budget and finance committee. The amendment will clean up the FY 20 budget and therefore prevent any audit findings and keep the city in compliance with PA 2. He further stated that at today’s meeting the commission is taking up for consideration the year-three waiver, and noted that over the course of the year, the city has routinely submitted the reports as memorialized in resolution 2018-13, Sec. 3. These monthly, quarterly and annual reports and data served to inform the commission on statutory benchmarks required of the city, as well as financial, operational, and administrative progressions. The finance committee and contracts committee were also convened which advantaged commission members with additional data and analyses, and opportunities to engage with city staff on matters of finance and operations. Sec. 8 of Act 181 sets forth the conditions that, if met, require the FRC to adopt a resolution granting a waiver. He stated that the city has met the conditions necessary for a third waiver.
