COUNTY OF ALBEMARLE
Requested FY 2004 Appropriations
Request approval of Appropriation #2004068, #2004070, #2004071, and #2004072, totaling
$262,161.75, providing funds for various General Government and School Funds.
Messrs. Tucker, Breeden; Ms. White
April 7, 2004
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 $262,161.75, which is below the threshold level for a budget amendment on its own. It is anticipated that a budget amendment will be proposed in May 2004, and these appropriations would be incorporated into it.
4.2 Fund County services in a fair, efficient manner and provide needed public facilities and infrastructure.
This request involves the approval of four (4) new FY 2004 appropriations as follows:
· Two (2) appropriations (#2004068 and #2004072) in the amount of $190,661.75, for various School programs and grants;
· One (1) appropriations (#2004070), totaling $71,000.00, recognizing a state grant award to the Fire Rescue Department and providing funding for suction equipment for the volunteer/rescue departments; and
· One (6) appropriation (#2004071), totaling $500.00 recognizing a state grant award to the Police Department;
A detailed description of these appropriations is provided on Attachment A.
Staff recommends approval of the FY 2004 Appropriations #2004068, #2004070, #2004071, and #2004072.
