TITLE:

Title

FY 2021 Budget Amendment and Appropriations

BODY

 

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

 

LEGAL REVIEW:   Yes

 

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.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

Recommendation

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.
