Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution increases funding for an Ad Hoc Committee reviewing the Madison Police Department Policy, Procedure, Culture, and Training practices. The 2016 Adopted Operating Budget included $50,000 to support the work of the committee. In their initial review the committee has determined the existing funding is insufficient to conduct a comprehensive review. The resolution authorizes transferring $350,000 from the Contingent Reserve to support consulting costs associated with the committee’s work. Upon transferring the funds, the total appropriation for the project will be $400,000. If approved, this transfer will reduce the balance of the 2016 Contingent Reserve to $514,837.
