Increase to Ramsey County Board of Commissioners Operating Budget

end

 

Recommendation

recommendation

Authorize the county manager to transfer $150,000 from the unallocated general account to the county board operating budget account in 2023.

end

 

Background and Rationale

body

The Ramsey County Board of Commissioners operating budget is currently projected to overspend its departmental budget by approximately $150,000. This spending is largely due to increased operating and travel cost. A one-time transfer from the unallocated general account would allow the Ramsey County Board of Commissioners budget to pay for currently projected spending through the end of 2023.

Fiscal Impact

This action will increase the Ramsey County Board of Commissioners operating budget by $150,000 and reduce funding in the unallocated general account by the same amount. There is sufficient budget authority in unallocated general to cover this transfer, and there is no net impact to the county’s fund balance or property tax levy as a result of this transfer. The 2024-2025 proposed budget has been adjusted to reflect actual spending.
