Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution amends the 2019 Adopted Operating Budget in order to make technical adjustments within various agency budgets. In certain instances, the Adopted Operating Budget includes funding for expenditures centrally with the anticipation of transferring those funds to agency budgets throughout the year when actual spending patterns are known. This is the case for both sick leave escrow and carry forward encumbrances; the amounts proposed in the midyear appropriation adjustment are based on actual expenditures through the first half of 2019. All of the proposed adjustments through this resolution are net neutral within the General Fund and have no impact on the Expenditure Restraint Program.

Sick Leave Escrow
Engineering: $105,000
Fire: $485,000
Mayor: $65,000
Parks: $125,000
Police: $1,475,000
Streets: $270,000
Direct Appropriations: ($2,525,000)

The 2019 Adopted Operating Budget includes $2.9m for sick leave escrow payments made from the General Fund. Through the 2nd Quarter, $2.03m has been paid out by General Fund agencies. The resolution recommends transferring funds only to those agencies where the sick leave escrow amount is contributing to a deficit in the agency’s overall budget.

Carry Forward Encumbrances

Building Inspection: $400
Civil Rights: $7,000
Economic Development: $200
Engineering: $600
Finance: $100
Fire: $23,000
Human Resources: $3,600
Library: $8,000
Planning: $59,000
Police: $17,000
Traffic Engineering: $100
Direct Appropriations: ($119,000)

The 2019 Adopted Operating Budget includes $400,000 for encumbrances associated with contracts that span multiple years, the total amount carried forward from 2018 totals $119,000. The balance of the budget for carry forward encumbrances ($281,000) will be transferred to the Contingent Reserve.
