Fiscal Note
The 2021 adopted budget, through Finance Committee amendment # 5, called for the operational transfer of Parking Enforcement from the Police Department to the Parking Division by March 31, 2021, pending the results of a study. This study is complete, and it details options and costs surrounding the transfer. The study is provided as an attachment to this resolution.

The proposed resolution implements the operational transfer of Parking Enforcement from the Police Department to the Parking Division. The full transfer is expected to occur before the end of 2023. Based on the study, the transfer will result in additional operating and capital budget expenditures for the Parking Division that are currently funded by the General Fund within Police's budget. Approximately $200K in Parking Enforcement costs continue to be funded by the General Fund through the Police Department. Additional cost increases may occur as a result of the transfer including additional software/licensing costs ($20K to $60K), facility rental fees (up to $100K annually), or additional Parking personnel for administrative or customer service support. Expenses associated with the transfer will be addressed separately from this resolution through budget amendments or requested in future Parking/Police operating and capital budgets.
