Fiscal Note
This resolution provides funding authorization for a variety of expenditures not anticipated in the 2012 Operating Budget. The appropriation of $5,099,500, from the General Fund balance brings the 2012 General Fund budget closer to the expenditure limit allowable under the State of Wisconsin’s Expenditure Restraint Program and helps preserve expenditure authority in future years. There is no impact on the tax levy. It is anticipated that, following this transfer, the unassigned General Fund balance will remain at approximately 16 percent of budgeted expenditures, above the established target of 15 percent.

The resolution also allocates funding from premium stabilization fund reserves budgeted in the 2012 budget under Supplemental Compensation to agencies to meet salary continuation and Police and Fire disability insurance billings. This change has no net impact on the General Fund balance.
