SUBJECT: Correction of Annual Budget Amendment to Reappropriate Funds for Prior Year Encumbrances and Obligations
DATE: January 12, 2004
The attached budget amendment would correct an error in the annual budget amendment to reappropriate funds for prior year encumbrances and obligations.
BACKGROUND AND DISCUSSION
On September 22, 2003. the Council approved an amendment to reappropriate funds for prior year encumbrances and obligations. The Public Housing Fund and the Transportation Fund received appropriation additions in excess of the correct amounts of $34,045 and $38,481, respectively. The $72,526 in over appropriations was for inventory purchases that did not need to be reappropriated. At the same time the Vehicle Replacement Fund was under appropriated by $64,725 for the encumbered purchases of rolling stock which was not received by June 30, 2003.
We propose that the Council enact the attached revised budget ordinance reducing the appropriations to the Public Housing Fund and the Transportation Fund and reappropriating funds to the Vehicle Replacement Fund as discussed above.
