REVIEWED BY:

 

 

 

BACKGROUND:

Virginia Code Section 15.2-1229, provides that the County may adopt a resolution to establish petty cash funds not exceeding $5,000 to be used to transact daily County business.

 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

4.2: Fund County services in a fair, efficient manner and improve needed public facilities and infrastructure.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

The Board of Supervisors last established petty cash funds by a Resolution adopted on April 5, 2006.  Staff recommends adoption of a new Resolution to authorize an additional $50.00 petty cash fund for the Community Development Department.  This petty cash fund allows customers to conduct business directly at the Community Development Department instead of having to go down to the Finance Department to pay their fees and then return to Community Development with their receipt to receive their permit, license, etc..

 

The establishment of a petty cash fund will provide better customer service to community residents and developers who are required to pay a development fee or licenses or pay for a building permit. A petty cash fund will eliminate the need for someone to make several stops at the County Office Building to complete their business.

 

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

There is no budget impact from this action.

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Staff recommends that the Board adopt the attached Resolution to add a petty cash fund for the Community Development Department and reestablish the existing petty cash funds.
