Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution amends the 2018 Parks Division Capital Budget Olbrich Botanical Complex project (Project #17193) by increasing expenditure authority by $2,000,000. This increased expenditure authority is funded by $1,000,000 in General Obligation debt and $1,000,000 in private donations.

Additionally, this project transfers $294,600 in existing project resources from the Parks Division’s Splash Parks projects (Project #s 10822 and 10823) to the Olbrich Botanical Complex project.
