Recommendation Concerning Supplemental Budget Amendment #020 - Stephan Hall, Budget Manager, Management and Budget Services
That the Board adopt the Resolution approving Supplemental Budget Amendment #020, Other Grants and Projects Fund (110), in the amount of $22,000, to recognize proceeds from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and to appropriate these funds for several activities which include hiring part-time internship positions (contract labor) to assist staff and continue the tree inventory for parks in the CRA districts, assist with coordination and planning of at least one tree care workshop, assist with funding outreach events such as Earth Day and Arbor Day, planting projects and other related projects. An equal match is required and will come from in-kind staff and volunteer time and labor.
Escambia County's urban forest plays a vital role in the health and well being of its citizens and communities. The Natural Resources Management Department's Water Quality & Land Management Division applied for an Urban and Community Forestry Grant through the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to fund an Internship and Volunteer Program to continue the tree inventory, planting of trees, and other related projects. An equal match is required and will come from in-kind staff and volunteer time and labor.
The amendment will increase Fund 110 by $22,000. This grant requires an equal match that will come from in-kind staff and volunteer time and labor.
POLICY/REQUIREMENT FOR BOARD ACTION:
Board policy requires increases and decreases in revenues to be approved by the Board.
