FY 2021 Budget Amendment and Appropriations



SUBJECT/PROPOSAL/REQUEST:   Public Hearing on the Proposed FY 2021 Budget Amendment, Resolution to approve Appropriations for local government and school projects and programs, and Resolution to Appropriate FY 21 On-going Funding of Multi-Year Capital Projects


ITEM TYPE:  Regular Action Item


STAFF CONTACT(S):  Richardson, Kamptner, Birch, Bowman, Vinzant, Mitchell, Taylor


PRESENTER (S):  Andy Bowman




REVIEWED BY: Jeffrey B. Richardson


BACKGROUND:  Virginia Code §15.2-2507 provides that any locality may amend its budget to adjust the aggregate amount to be appropriated during the fiscal year as shown in the currently adopted budget; provided, however, any such amendment which exceeds one percent of the total expenditures shown in the currently adopted budget must be accomplished by first publishing a notice of a meeting and holding a public hearing before amending the budget. The Code section applies to all County funds, i.e., General Fund, Capital Funds, E911, School Self-Sustaining, etc.      

The cumulative total of the FY 2021 appropriations itemized below is ($789,709.79). A budget amendment public hearing is not required because the amount of the cumulative appropriations does not exceed one percent of the currently adopted budget. However, staff recommends that a public hearing be held for transparency purposes in this unique circumstance where 1) appropriation #2021035, if considered by itself, would require a public hearing as a decrease in the budget greater than one percent; and 2) all other appropriations, if considered without #2021035, would require a public hearing as an increase greater than one percent.


STRATEGIC PLAN: Mission: To enhance the well-being and quality of life for all citizens through the provision of the highest level of public service consistent with the prudent use of public funds.


DISCUSSION:  The FY 2021 Budget Amendment totals ($789,709.79). The estimated expenses and revenues included in the proposed amendment are shown below:


The budget amendment is comprised of a total of eleven (11) separate appropriations. Three (3) have already been approved by the Board as indicated below:


                     One (1) appropriation approved 9/16/2020

                     Two (2) appropriations approved 10/7/2020

                     Eight (8) appropriation requests for approval on November 4, 2020 are the remaining as described in Attachment A.




After the public hearing, staff recommends that the Board adopt the attached Resolutions (Attachment B and Attachment C) for local government and school projects and programs as described in Attachment A.


Attachment A - Appropriation Descriptions

Attachment B - Appropriation Resolution

Attachment C - Capital Carryforward Resolution
