Title
Resolution to Amend Ann Arbor City Budget for Fiscal Year 2019 (8 Votes Required)
Memorandum
Attached for your review and approval, please find a resolution to amend the Ann Arbor City Budget for Fiscal Year 2019.

The Michigan Public Act 2 of 1968, as amended, provides that the City shall not incur expenditures in excess of the amounts appropriated. In order to comply with PA 2, the City monitors expenditures against the adopted budget on a monthly basis and appropriates budget amendments be adopted by Council as needed.

Management of the City has monitored the revenue and expenditure activity against the adopted budget for the various funds throughout the year. In addition, management has attempted to periodically forecast the remainder of the fiscal year's revenue and expenditures.

In monitoring the various funds, management has forecasted certain variances versus budget that require budget amendments to remain in compliance with PA 2 as indicated above. These variances and the reasons for the variances are listed on the attachment.

The total requested General Fund budget amendment is $1,220,800. A portion of this amount is covered by $280,000 from assigned fund balance for severances and a portion of approximately $550,000 from projected revenues higher than planned. The budget amendment for all other funds totals $170,000. A detail of the requested appropriations is attached.

Passage of this Resolution and approval of the fiscal year 2019 budget amendments as prepared is recommended.
