Reducing the Contingent Appropriation in the General Fund by $1,271,000.00; increasing appropriations to transfer this amount to the Motor Fuel Tax Fund; estimating revenue in the Motor Fuel Tax Fund; appropriating $1,271,000.00 to the Snow and Ice Removal account; and recognizing an emergency.


FINANCE AND AUDIT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Mark Thoma-Perry explained that the ordinance would transfer funds in the Motor Fuel account in order to pay for snow and ice removal. The funds allocated in the last fiscal budget had been depleted and the snow season has not ended. Stan Harris, Director of Public Works, gave a breakdown of the snow events of the past few weeks and what the cost incurred by the City thus far. The funds that the ordinance is asking for would put the snow removal back to its historical level for the rest of the snow season. Any money that is left over at the end of the season is used to purchase salt for the next season.

 There will be a Credit Rating Update. Randy Landes, Acting Director of Finance and CFO, explained that there would be a small delegation going to Chicago for a conference where Kansas City's credit ratings would be discussed.
