PURPOSE

 

The purpose of this item is housekeeping for Ciclovia.  As staff reported out after the event, the initial Ciclovia was over budget by $7,370.  This was a first time event for the City and the true expenses to host the event were unknown until after the completion of the event.

 

In order to properly account for this event, a budget adjustment in the amount of $7370 must be performed.
