CAMP VERDE - A town's fiscal budget and its Capital Improvements Plan generally go hand in hand. The Camp Verde Town Council will discuss a tentative budget for 2013-2014, as well as the 2014 Capital Improvements Plan at today's work session.

"I believe that we will get into the economic development, what is intended by the numbers, and what all the numbers mean," said Russ Martin, town manager for Camp Verde. "Similarly, how the numbers relate to the CIP."

The last time Martin spoke to the Council about the budget and the CIP, it was Martin who presented data. "Now, the Council will have the floor," Martin said.

"The key is to understand the process," he said. "Council will be asking the questions."

As council discusses and considers the tentative budget and the CIP, Martin said the Council would then direct Town staff on May 17 "on the amounts they want to see in the budget."

"At this point," Martin said, "It's about the staff's requests and the manager's recommendations."

Martin said he would like to add two jobs to the Town's staff: a maintenance person and an additional staffer in the Marshal's office.

Martin said that he expects a reasonable public turnout to the session.

"CIP projects are the ones that more people are interested in," Martin said.

Martin said last year's CIP helped fund a new walk-in cooler for the Camp Verde Senior Center's luncheon program.

"What I am trying to build here is a sustainable budget to serve the public," Martin said. "We want to do small projects not above and beyond what we can accomplish. That is a priority for me, personally.

"Actually, I am as proud of this budget as any I have worked on," he said.

Today's work session will be held at 4 p.m. in council chambers, 473 S Main St., Room 106.
