Title
Resolution authorizing line-item transfers between various funds for the purpose of reducing the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Budget spending authority in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Staff Summary
* The COVID-19 pandemic has had severe economic consequences not only in Lake County, but across the United States and world. The County's initial immediate response is to reduce operational expenditures.
* Line-item transfers in various funds between accounts in the FY 2020 budget are needed to reduce the overall operating spending authority to balance out the revenue losses. The funds are being moved into Contingency accounts that may be accessed if needed and if funds are available.

* Additional operational budget reductions will be presented on an ongoing basis and as the need arises.
