Item Discussion

PURPOSE

 

To consider, discuss, and approve authorizing a budget adjustment in the amount of $227,906 to the FY 2017 Stormwater Fund balance for the CDBG Huebner at Timberhill Drainage Improvement Project.

 

In May of 2016, the City Council approved a FY 2016 Stormwater Fund balance adjustment in the amount of $282,000 to fund improvements to the drainage at Huebner Road and Timberhill Drive, subject to the approval of a Community Development Block Grant (see M & C #2016-05-17-05). Even though the City received approval, the item did not come before the County Commissioner's Court for its approval until late August. Because of this delay, the Project was not completed.

 

The previously approved funds were placed back into the FY 2016 Stormwater Fund Balance at the end of the fiscal year in September. In order to fund the Project, the City Council must authorize a budget adjustment from the FY 2017 Stormwater Fund balance.
