Explanation
Background: This legislation authorizes the transfer of $117,000 within the general fund, from the Department of Development’s Division of Code Enforcement to the Division of Housing.

Housing Division personnel are funded by multiple funding sources: the general fund, Neighborhood Economic Development Fund, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Grant, and LEAD Grant. Staff are funded from one or a combination of these sources. Those that are partially or wholly funded by CDBG, HOME, or LEAD record their actual hours worked and attribute their hours to the appropriate funding source. Throughout the year, the actual hours worked are reconciled against the budgeted hours and appropriate expenditure corrections must be made to be in compliance with the grants. Year to date, Housing staff has worked on more projects that are general fund rather than grant funded, therefore additional general fund personnel dollars are needed to accommodate the work performed.

Code Enforcement has a surplus of personnel funds due to vacancy savings.

Emergency action is requested so as to allow the financial transaction to be posted in the City's accounting system as soon as possible. Up to date financial posting promotes accurate accounting and financial management.

Fiscal Impact: Projected savings have been identified in the Division of Code Enforcement such that this transfer of appropriation authority can take place without an overall increase to the Department. Transfer of $117,000.00 from the Department of Development’s Division of Code Enforcement (Object Class 1 - Personnel) to the Division of Housing (Object Class 1 - Personnel).
