DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

Revenues for Road District Tax (RDT) received in Fiscal Year (FY) 2019-20 are higher than budgeted.  This budget transfer will allow the additional revenue received to be transferred to the Road Fund. 

 

Budgeted appropriations for RDT need to be increased in Operating Transfers Out by $500,000, offset by an increase to Property Taxes Secured in the amount of $500,000. 

 

Budgeted appropriations for Transportation - General Department need to be increased in Operating Transfers In: RDT by $500,000, offset by an increase to Appropriation for Contingency in the amount of $500,000.
