Fiscal Note
This resolution would, in 2013, resume implementation of the Law Enforcement Advocate Partnership (LEAP) Program within the pilot project area in Madison’s South Police District and expand it into the City’s North Police District. It redirects $30,000 of $72,000, which was provided in the Community Development Division’s 2013 budget for a north-side shared space initiative, for use to resume LEAP and expand it into the City’s North Police District. The program is expected to be implemented city-wide in 2014 at an estimated annual cost of about $60,000, which would need to be included in the 2014 budget and accommodated under City levy constraints imposed by the State, subject to Common Council approval.

The 2013 operating budgets of CDD will be amended as follows:

($30,000) GN01-54902-270000 Professional Lease
$30,000 GN01-54920-273100 Community Agency Contracts
