Resolution/Document Body

WHEREAS, pursuant to Administrative Manual Policy 05-02, budget adjustments exceeding $5,000 require Legislative approval, and


WHEREAS, an Over-Target Request (OTR No. 30) for an increase of $125,000 in Target spending authority for the Highway Division to apply savings from Town snow plowing to the purchase of highway materials was approved and included as part of the 2017 Tompkins County Budget adopted by the Tompkins County Legislature on November 15, 2016 (Resolution No. 2016-236), and


WHEREAS, OTR No. 30 inadvertently omitted the necessary, corresponding $125,000 increases to both the Highway Division’s Interfund Revenue account and to the expenditure account for Contributions to the D-Fund, through which the Highway Division receives appropriations from the General Fund, and


WHEREAS, the correction of these omissions in the 2017 Budget is budget neutral in its net effect, now therefore be it


RESOLVED, on recommendation of the Facilities and Infrastructure and the Budget, Capital, and Personnel Committees, That the Finance Director be and hereby is directed to make the following budget adjustment


Revenue:                            5110.42801 Interfund Revenues                                                        $125,000

RESOLVED, further, That the spending target for the Interfund Contribution to the D-Fund and the corresponding Highway Division Interfund Revenue account for purposes of the 2018 annual budget be increased by $125,000 to match the ongoing increase in target spending authority for highway materials granted to the Highway Division in the 2017 Budget.
