Meeting Date:

Title:

Upcoming budget amendment >$10,000 Finance Authority

Submitted For:

Kevan Bryan, Finance Director

Submitted By:

Kevan Bryan, Finance Director

TOPIC:

Finance -

Discuss upcoming Agenda request to approve a $45,000 and a $30,000

budget amendment for the Sheriff's office operations, in the Gen Fund-Misc account.

BACKGROUND:

Policy #13-99 (Section N) provides that the Finance Director may authorize the transfer

of up to $10,000 in budget authority within a fund. These are routinely completed and

summarized for the BOCC at  the midyear and at the end of each fiscal year.

The costs of involuntary pre commitment evaluations for FY16 and related transportation

costs have risen beyond this limit. For the evaluations, this is primarily due to the

increase in the accrued liability at the end of the year to more adequately reflect the

IBNR claims for FY16 that will continue to be received throughout FY17, along with more

services in this area. The lag involved in these expenses coming in is quite large, and

follows historical patterns. High volume in FY16 and more usage requires a transfer of

$45,000 to allow for the closing of FY16 for this activity. Please note that Finance will be

reinstating a proposed reduction in this account for FY17 of $25,000. The FY17 budget

will now reflect a total of $125,000. Account involved is Misc Gen

1000.000.199.420050.351.

For transportation costs, we will need a $30,000 transfer, and a similar increase in that

account for FY17's budget.

These amounts will be paid for through other Misc Gen Fund contingency lines unspent.

RECOMMENDED ACTION:

Discuss in advance of 8/16/16 BOCC consent agenda approval.
