Fiscal Note
The base budget includes $203,000 within CDD for Day Center operations ($80,000) and gap services for homeless individuals prior to the opening of the Day Center ($123,000). Historically the budget included $50,000 for Day Center operations; through BOE Amendment 14, the 2016 Adopted Budget added $30,000 for a total of $80,000 as the City’s contribution for the Day Center.

The funding for gap services was added to the budget in 2015. This funding currently supports the following contracts:

Use Amount
Case Management at the Library 66,000
Transportation Services 19,000
Laundry Services 16,000
Storage Space 22,000
TOTAL $123,000


The proposed resolution states the City’s intent to provide $137,000 annually for the operations of the Day Center. At this funding level case management services at the Central Library will continue while the remaining gap services will be discontinued. The funding commitment outlined in the resolution is contingent upon appropriations in the 2017 Adopted Operating Budget.
