Explanation

BACKGROUND: There is a need to transfer and appropriate funds to provide 2017 funding for the Area Commissions. Historically, the City has provided funds to the Area Commissions, who through their daily operational functions incur eligible expenses that require cash expenditures during the program year. These funds allow each Area Commission the flexibility and individuality in decision making as they fulfill their functions and responsibilities as outlined in their bylaws and Columbus City Code. Each Area Commission will receive up to $2,500.00 in 2017.

Emergency action is requested so that payments to the Area Commissions can be made immediately, thereby avoiding interruptions in services.

FISCAL IMPACT: This legislation transfers $38,000 from the General Fund to the Area Commission Fund; and appropriates $47,500 for operating expenses of the Area Commissions.
