Fiscal Note
On March 23, 2020, the Mayor issued an Emergency Proclamation based on the increasing transmission of the COVID-19 disease within the City of Madison. To help mitigate the financial impacts of this emergency on the businesses and residents of Madison, the proposed resolution waives the requirement for accepting donations over $10,000 if the donations are for emergency-related cash or supplies and further waives the requirement that such donations be appropriated by the Common Council if the gift is not otherwise accounted for in an agency’s budget. The Department Head will notify the Finance Director and the Mayor of any such donations. The acceptance and appropriation of any such donations will be presented for approval via resolution at the next scheduled Common Council meeting.
There is no impact to the levy with this resolution. Any expenses incurred due to the donation will be offset by the donated funds.
