(81,958.00)
 
Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost
There will be a net county cost decrease due to the transfer of funds from special revenue accounts to offset program related expenditures.
 
Background
Funds are deposited through penalties and fees into special revenue accounts under the departments authority.  The original budget developed in late May of 2011 was an estimate based upon the amount of time the department anticipated working within a particular program.  It's not until final payroll is recorded and all expenditures are posted that true program costs are realized.    
 
Reason for Recommendation
The original budgets developed for the above mentioned programs were exceeded resulting in the need to transfer additional funds from special revenue accounts.
 
Action(s) to be taken following Board approval
Budget transfer to be signed by Chair and forwarded to the Auditors Office for immediate posting into FY 11/12.
