So, Why
Am I
Here?
Who was invited?

Who is GreenPlay?

What are we going to do?

What are we not going to do?
Resource Allocation
Cost Recovery
how we use limited tax dollars and alternative sources of funding.
how we use fees & charges and other alternative funding sources to offset the annual cost of providing services and programs… balancing with how we use tax dollars.
Cost = Tax Investment + Cost Recovery
Costs: identifiable expenses associated with a service
Tax Investment: tax funding and mandatory fees
Cost Recovery: all revenue sources associated with that service
(fees, grants, sponsorships, donations, non-tax payer sources)
Tax Investment + Cost Recovery
60%
80%
100%
40%
20%
= 100%
= 100%
+ 20%
Excess revenues over direct costs can help fund a scholarship program!
Fees and Charges
Contributions
Taxes
Program Fees, Permits, Rentals
Grants, Donors, and Sponsors
“Those who invest expect to benefit”
“Those who pay expect to benefit”
“Those who contribute expect to benefit”
This is important because it leads to...
- Organizational sustainability
- Strategic and justifiable decisions based upon a logical model
and sound methodology
- Appropriate use of tax support
- Greater dependence on revenue generation and alternative funding

Community
This provides a framework for discussion and one cannot simply adopt another agency's philosophy
The benefit is in the discussion, “ownership,” and “buy-in” – staff, decision makers and the public.
May increase positive economic activity, property values and public safety, address social needs, and enhance basic quality of life of all residents.

in the
Pyramid
This allows the department to “tell the story” of being accountable for, and responsible with, resources
“How much tax investment should be directed to a service if an individual derives a greater benefit than the community as a whole?”
