Title

Resolution authorizing an emergency appropriation in the amount of $124,400 out of unallocated capital funding for a boat replacement used by the Sheriff’s Department for marine patrol.

 

Staff Summary

                     The Sheriff’s Department indicated during the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 budget meetings that one of their patrol boats was nonfunctional and needs replacement. The replacement is necessary to ensure a safe environment on Lake County’s navigable waterways.

                     During the course of balancing the FY 2022 budget, this replacement as well as the replacement of other vehicles and equipment were delayed in order to present a balanced budget.

                     This replacement purchase does not fall under a direct American Recue Plan Act (ARPA) expenditure category; however, ARPA does allow for governmental operational expenses through the category known as revenue replacement. Until such time as the ARPA strategy for the entire revenue replacement category has been determined, this purchase will be funded from capital reserves.

                     Should it be determined at a later time that the boat is an approved ARPA expenditure, a transfer will be performed to align the expense appropriately and capital reserves will be replenished.
