ACTION: X INFORMATION:
The Code of Virginia §15.2-2507 stipulates that any locality may amend its budget to adjust the aggregate amount to be appropriated during the current fiscal year as shown in the currently adopted budget. However, any such amendment which exceeds one percent of the total expenditures shown in the currently adopted budget or the sum of $500,000, whichever is lesser, 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 total of these requested additional FY 2004 appropriations is $356,151.14, which is below the threshold level for a budget amendment on its own. It is anticipated that a budget amendment will be proposed in February 2004, and these appropriations would be incorporated into it.
This request involves the approval of ten (10) new FY 2004 appropriations as follows:
· One (1) appropriation (#2004046) in the amount of $25,679.00 for a grant from Homeland Security and funding of an insurance deductible for the Emergency Communications Center;
· Two (2) appropriations (#2004047 and #2004052), totaling $116,724.14, for various School programs and grants;
· Six (6) appropriations (#2004048, #2004049, #2004053, #2004054, #2004055, and #2004056), totaling $165,125.00 recognizing federal and state grant awards to the Police Department; and
· One (1) appropriation (#2004050) in the amount of $48,623.00 for grant funding from the Department of Medical Assistance Services to the Department of Social Services.
