Resolution 18-59: Appropriation Request for FY19 Supplemental Appropriations and Transfers (Motion to Approve Resolution 18-59- Majority Vote (5))

passed by FinCom Tuesday by 8-0 vote

had needed 1.5M to balance budget, now need only 642K
some budget adjustments to account for customer service
regional dispatch opening delayed, need to add money back to the Police and Fire and reduce MEC budget
also add the Tri-County resource officer

Police up 74K

adding 600K to the road budget, first step to a long term plan to better handle our road backlog

had more revenues, i.e. new growth
signed host agreement, new permits and receipts over what had been forecasted

trying to make it work, kind of the way of the world
the others can be helpful on other floors

900-1000 passports a year but that is now downstairs
the income statements on housing are now better handled

The School Dept is also happy that the passports are down stairs
