FINANCE COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
Heather Brown, Law Department, submitted a committee substitute for Ordinance No. 011772 because of an error in wording. Randal Landes, City Treasurer, made the request for reducing appropriations in various Super TIF/TIF reserve accounts and reallocating it to various project accounts in the Special Allocation Fund. This would allow the city to utilize a portion of those reserves for projects that have shortfalls. Evert Asjes expressed concern of what would happen if this same type of shortfall situation happened during the next fiscal year. Mr. Landes assured Mr. Asjes there were still reserves in the general fund.
