ORDINANCE NO. 090096

 

Reducing the Contingent Appropriation in the General Fund by $450,000.00; and appropriating it to cover costs associated with the Leaf and Brush Drop-Off program.

WHEREAS, the FY 2008-09 adopted budget provided no funds for the operation of a leaf and brush drop-off program for City residents; and

WHEREAS, the adopted FY 2008-09 budget assumed that the Citys leaf and brush drop-off program will be fully self-supported through user fees, and

WHEREAS, the Council subsequently adopted Ordinance No. 080443, amending the schedule of fees to provide that residents of the City who present proof of residency through a drivers license, official Missouri identification card, tax receipt, water bill or other similar document shall be entitled to drop-off five (5) sacks, per vehicle, per week, without charge and that households within the City shall be entitled to drop-off two (2) pick-up truck loads without charge per calendar year; and

WHEREAS, the City has subsequently incurred unbudgeted costs totaling $450,000.00 for the expense associated with a contract for operation in which more leaf and brush drop offs were exempted from the fees, higher security costs provided by the Kansas City Police Department were incurred, and higher printing costs associated with the changes were incurred; NOW, THEREFORE,

09-1000-179990-B Contingent Appropriation  $450,000.00

I hereby certify that there is a balance, otherwise unencumbered, to the credit of the appropriation to which the foregoing expenditure is to be charged, and a cash balance, otherwise unencumbered, in the treasury, to the credit of the fund from which payment is to be made, each sufficient to meet the obligation hereby incurred.
