Resolution/Document Body

WHEREAS, Resolution No. 39 of 2018 authorized the restructuring of the Medical Examiner Program in the Tompkins County Department of Public Health and a corresponding budget transfer across budgeting units, and


WHEREAS, the aforementioned budget transfer moved spending authority out of a budgeting unit subject to the Public Health Department’s Fiscal Target (4014) and into a budgeting unit that is one of the Department’s mandated units (4017), thus effectively reducing the Department’s Fiscal Target, and


WHEREAS, it was the Department’s expectation that, in addition to the budget transfer for 2018, this consolidation of the Medical Examiner Program in the mandated unit would also result in a decrease in the Department’s Fiscal Target, now therefore be it


RESOLVED, on recommendation of the Health and Human Services and the Budget, Capital, and Personnel Committees, That Resolution No. 39 of 2018 be and hereby is amended to authorize and direct that the Department’s Fiscal target be adjusted downward by $66,129 (the full 2018 expenditure appropriation for unit 4014).
