Carryover of 2021 Property Management Operating Funds into 2022 Budget





Approve funding and related transfers of $840,000 from Property Management’s Building Fund Balance for the following items:    

                     Public Works Fund Operating Projects; $144,000.

                     Library Facilities Fund Operating Projects; $380,000.

                     Courthouse Facilities Fund Operating Projects; $76,000.

                     General Building Fund Operating Projects; $240,000.



Background and Rationale


Typically, Property Management reserves appropriations from year-to-year to fund operating projects not completed in their initial budget year.  These funds pay for non-routine maintenance of county buildings.  In the past, this was done through the year-end encumbrance process for each of the four Building funds.  In 2021, funds were not encumbered and appropriations closed to fund balance. 


To cover 2022 costs, Property Management is requesting a reappropriation from fund balance in the amount of $840,000 to cover these costs in 2022.

Racial Equity Impact

There is no direct racial equity impact associated with the projects funded through this action. Maintaining county buildings is critical and a benefit to employees and all residents who seek services from our employees.



Community Participation Level and Impact

There has been no direct community participation in the development of the maintenance projects to be completed with these funds. Capital projects are identified in the biennial budget process and shared with the Capital Improvement Program Citizens’ Advisory Committee.

Fiscal Impact

This action would increase the department’s 2022 Operating budget by $840,000.  This has no impact on the general fund for Ramsey County.
