Fiscal Note
This amendment provides $15,000 in funding from the Contingent Reserve to the Mayor's Office operating budget for the purchase of services from an agency or organization to deliver emergency travel assistance to full-service grocery to qualified residents of the Allied and Dunn’s Marsh neighborhoods.

Funding of $15,000 is available in the 2015 adopted City operating budget, which has appropriated $1,200,000 in funding for the Contingent Reserve. The current, uncommitted balance of the Contingent Reserve is $1,163,000, which will be reduced to $1,148,000 upon adoption of this amendment. There is no net impact on the tax levy.

The 2015 City operating budget will be amended as follows:

($15,000) - Reduce Contingent Reserve
$15,000 - Increase Consulting Services Expense: Mayor's Office
