Notes

  1. Operating Agencies: There are several departmental changes approved for FY 2012.  The Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation, and Substance Abuse, the Department of Human Services, and the Office on Women have merged into one agency: the Department of Community and Human Services. The Department of Emergency Communications was established in March of FY 2011 to consolidate the emergency communications functions of the Police and Fire Departments into a single department. When possible, prior year amounts have been moved to the new departments.
  2. Fire Department:  As discussed during several City Council legislative meetings and during the FY 2012 budget process, the Fire Department has a continued need to utilize overtime to maintain minimum staffing levels on frontline Fire and EMS units when firefighters and medics use leave and to fill vacancies from attrition.  The Fire Department is projected to be over the current budget as adopted by City Council. OMB and Fire staff will continue to monitor overtime and other expenditures and revise the projections as needed.
  3. Health Department:  The decrease reflects the timing of bills received from the Commonwealth for services provided.
  4. Schools:  The City will provide approximately 75 percent of the estimated funds required to operate the City public school system in FY 2012. School expenditure data will be provided by the School administration in the September Financial Report, following the first month of school operations.
  5. Debt Service:  The increase reflects budgeted debt service for new bonds issued in June 2009 and June 2010.  A portion of the interest cost ($1.2 million) is reimbursed from the federal government as part of the Build America Bonds program.

  6. Non- Departmental:  The decrease in expenditures is a result of a difference in the timing of payments to one of the City’s closed pension plans.
