a. Ordinance 2012-20(AT)
An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $300,000 As Additional Funding For The Capital City Fire/Rescue, Emergency Services Program Fiscal Year 2013 Operating Budget, Funding Provided By The General Fund Fund Balance of $300,000.
This ordinance would appropriate an additional $300,000 to the FY13 Capital City Fire/Rescue operating budget. Funds will be provided by the General Fund fund balance.
Though Capital City Fire/Rescue FY13 general operations expenditures are within the approved budget two issues resulted in the needed supplemental:
1) Unanticipated ambulance revenue collection shortfalls from prior and current years ($250,000)
2) Replacing 2 rescue boats with the understanding that the costs would be eligible for federal Secure Rural Schools Title III funding ($50,000).
Write-offs for uncollectable billings had been growing during recent years but the budgeted revenues had not been updated. The FY14 budget does provide for the reduction in revenues. We are still working with the Forest Service regarding potential reimbursement but at this time the decision provided to CBJ is that the boats do not qualify for reimbursement.
I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular meeting.
