South Lake Minnetonka Police Department





ANNUAL OPERATING BUDGET PROCESS

The South Lake Minnetonka Police Department (SLMPD) operates under a cooperative policing arrangement between the cities of Excelsior, Greenwood, Shorewood and Tonka Bay.  The SLMPD is dependent on these member cities for the majority of its revenue for operating and capital expenses.  The deadline for adopting an operating budget for the following year is September 1st of the current year.  In order to meet this timeline, the process needs to commence well in advance so that the chief of police (manager) along with staff can develop a budget proposal for the SLMPD governing board (Coordinating Committee) to consider and pass along to the member city councils for consideration.

SOUTH LAKE MINNETONKA PUBLIC SAFETY FACILITY - 2013 DEBT SERVICE OBLIGATION

Since January 2004, the South Lake Minnetonka Public Safety Facility in Shorewood has served as headquarters for the South Lake Minnetonka Police Department (SLMPD) and the Excelsior Fire District (EFD). This community asset not only enhances the delivery of public safety services, but strengthens the working relationship between the SLMPD and EFD. It also represents what can be accomplished through visionary leadership and a spirit of cooperation.

The Shorewood Economic Development Authority serves as the fiscal manager for the debt service owed on the lease-revenue bonds issued for construction of the facility. The cities served by the SLMPD and the EFD are responsible for this financial obligation until the bonds are satisfied in 2023.
