Fiscal Note
On March 23, 2020, the Mayor issued an Emergency Proclamation based on the increasing transmission of the COVID-19 virus within the City of Madison. To help mitigate the financial impacts of this emergency on the businesses and residents of Madison, the proposed resolution extends the expiration date for Conveyance permits in existence or in existence through the time that the Director of Public Health Madison and Dane County and the Governor of Wisconsin determine to end the emergency actions that they have taken to combat the coronavirus pandemic to one year from the date of issuance or six months from the time that emergency action ends, whichever is greater.

The cost of conveyance permits range from $290-$370, of which $50 is allocated to the State. Approximately 2,200 inspections remain in 2020. If the emergency ends soon (May 1st), the impact will be minimal. If it extends through the summer, the impact on 2020 revenue will be minimal but there may be additional overtime and contract costs. And if the emergency extends into the fall, revenues may be deferred to 2021 in addition to the additional overtime and contract costs.

A budget amendment is not proposed at this time. The Finance Department is closely monitoring the 2020 budget and subsequent budget amendment resolutions to fully fund the response efforts are anticipated in the future.
