Explanation

BACKGROUND    An agreement between the Public Safety Department and IAFF Local 67 resulted in the establishment of the Quarter Master Incentive Travel Fund in December 2003.  The agreement calls for the yearly deposit of seven percent of savings from the prior year's purchase of fire uniforms compared to the benchmark amount of $850,000.00 into this fund.  There is now a need to transfer $11,897 from the Fire Division's general fund operating budget to the Quarter Master Incentive Travel Fund to provide funding for travel for the Fire Division's Honor Guard, Pipe and Drum, CISM members, technical committees, etc.
