Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The Department of Transportation, Maintenance and Operations Division (Transportation), finds it necessary to purchase one (1) Henke plow. This piece of equipment will be used in conjunction with a rental loader for snow removal services during the winter months in County Service Area 3 (CSA 3). The equipment is currently on the approved FY 2020-21 Fixed Asset List, however the current cost of the Henke plow exceeds the original budgeted amount that was based on a quote when budget was created in January of 2020. Transportation is requesting the Fixed Asset List be adjusted to accommodate the $10,000 increase for one (1) Henke plow bringing the new total to $25,000. The CSA 3 services and supplies budget will be decreased by $10,000 to accommodate the increase in fixed assets. There is no increase to overall budgeted appropriations.

ALTERNATIVES
The Board may elect to not sign the budget transfer and not approve the change to the Fixed Asset List as proposed, although this would leave Transportation short one (1) plow for the upcoming winter for the loader rental program.
