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 total of this requested FY 2010 appropriation is $2,535,924.19. A budget amendment public hearing is not required because the cumulative appropriations will not exceed one percent of the currently adopted budget.

 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Goal 5:  Develop a comprehensive funding strategy/plan to address the County’s growing needs

 

 

DISCUSSION:

This request involves the approval of five (5) new FY 2010 appropriations as follows:

 

·         One (1) appropriation (#2010018) transferring $91,000.00 for road and drainage improvements to Sun Ridge Road;

·         One (1) appropriation (#2010019) totaling $113,138.00 for a Community Policing grant;
