RESOLUTION NO. 150527

 

Expressing the intent of the City Council that significant changes to the adopted budget adversely impacting approved programming will be approved by the Council.

WHEREAS, the City Council annually adopts a budget based on estimated revenues and expenditures; and

 

WHEREAS, during the course of a budget year, budget adjustments necessarily occur as revenues are received and funds expended; and

 

WHEREAS, in our City Manager form of government, the City Manager is empowered and expected to make these budget adjustments to meet the City’s obligations within the course of the year; and

 

WHEREAS, however, this responsibility of the City Manager must be balanced with the expectation of the Council that approved programs be funded; and

 

WHEREAS, budget adjustments in which programs or contracts approved in the adopted budget are cut or reduced by more than 5% are significant changes warranting approval by the Council; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That is it the intent of the City Council that significant changes to the adopted budget that adversely impact approved programming will be approved by the City Council prior to the budget adjustment.
