Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution allocates an additional $30,000 from the Municipal Art Fund capital program toward the site-specific public art project authorized by Council adopted RES-18-00139. The increase in funding will account for a change in design, fabrication, and material costs associated with aluminum price fluctuations, bringing the total project funding to $70,000. Resolution (RES-18-00139) authorized the use of up to $40,000 in federal CDBG funds for the Parks Division to implement improvements to Eken and Pennsylvania Parks. The Municipal Art Fund capital program currently has remaining budget authority of approximately $205,000. No additional City appropriation is required.
