Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost
No impact to Net County Cost.  This is a transfer out of one General Fund budget into another.
 
Background
In past years the Probation Department incurred all expenses related to the Juvenile Hall.  The Facilities Division of the CAO's office manages the Joint Occupancy Agreement with the Judicial Council of California for the shared space at the Juvenile Hall.  This Agreement allows for the County to bill the Courts for a portion of utility and maintenance expenses at the facility.  The Courts require a very detailed billing for these expenses.  In an effort to improve efficiency, it made sense for Facilities to process the utility bills for the Juvenile Hall and have data readily available rather than requesting it from Probation on a quarterly basis.
 
Reason for Recommendation
The Facilities Division has been paying the utility bills at the Juvenile Hall in FY 2013/14.  This change in processing occurred after the budget was adopted aappropriatedet was appropriated in the Probation Department.  This budget transfer moves appropriations to the division wherein the expenses were incurred.
 
Clerk of the Board Follow Up Actions
Following approval forward signed budget transfer to the Auditor-Controller's office for processing.
