Fiscal Note
The additional funding of $168,300 to support these programs in 2013 will be offset by the receipt of $418,000 in unanticipated revenues. The City recently received a payment of $418,000 as payback for a WHEDA-administered Housing Development Grant made to Cardinal Associates of Madison LLC in 1986. The scheduled loan repayment was 2016, but the loan has been paid back earlier. These revenues were not anticipated as part of the 2013 adopted budget. The budget will be amended to recognize additional revenues deposited in the City General Fund, and to increase the expenditure authority in the Community Development Division budget to provide an additional $168,300 for Community Agency contracts. There is no impact on the levy in 2013. If this additional funding were to be included in future budgets, the funding will need to be considered among other CIty priorities and accommodated within the City's budgeted levy limits as required by the State, and subject to Common Council approval. The 2013 budget will be amended as follows:

($168,300) GN01-78890-000000 Increase General Fund Revenues - Miscellaneous
$168,300 GN01-54920-274000 Increase CDD Expenditures for Community Agency Contracts
