Question: Please provide the FY 2022 Revised Add/Delete Memorandum for Consideration in the Final Add/Delete Worksession. (City Manager Jinks)
City of Alexandria, Virginia
DATE: APRIL 28, 2021
TO: THE HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF CITY COUNCIL
THROUGH: MARK B. JINKS, CITY MANAGER
FROM: MORGAN ROUTT, DIRECTOR, OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET
SUBJECT: BUDGET MEMO #56: REVISED ADD/DELETE LIST FOR CONSIDERATION IN THE FINAL ADD/DELETE WORK SESSION
The purpose of this memorandum is to provide a revised add/delete list based on the discussions from the Preliminary Add/Delete Work Session held on April 27, 2021. This list will be the basis for the discussions at the Final Add/Delete Work Session to be held on May 3.
The Possible Consensus column includes items with majority Council support (four or more members) based on the co-sponsorship of original proposals and the discussion at the Preliminary Add/Delete Work Session.
All proposals had majority support at the conclusion of the Preliminary Add/Delete Work Session, and all proposals could be funded with a surplus of $17,349.
During the work session there was also discussion of changing the OHA oral history item funding source from the Police overhire budget to another source at a cost of $50,000 and extending the Library overdue fine elimination from juveniles only to all patrons at a cost of $72,000. If the $17,349 surplus is applied to those two items, another $104,651 would be required from another source to fund those options. This can be accomplished by increasing the TRIP revenue estimate by $100,000 and taking a small amount of $4,651 from a non-departmental account.
Outlined below are the next steps in the process for adopting the FY 2020 budget:
- On Monday, May 3, 2021 at 7:00pm, City Council will make its final decisions on the FY 2022 Budget at the Final Add/Delete Work Session.
- On Tuesday, May 4, 2021, staff will make public City Council’s final decisions from the Final Add/Delete Work Session.
- On Wednesday, May 5, 2021 at 7:00pm, City Council will approve the FY 2022 Operating Budget and FY 2022-2031 Capital Improvement Program.
If any member of the public would like to comment on this revised add/delete list, comments may be submitted online at www.alexandriava.gov/Budget through May 2, 2021.
