Impact Statement

Purpose of Proposed Legislation and Background Information

In the Fall Supplemental Budget (BMP), City Council adopts changes to appropriation levels in various funds, makes changes to Current Appropriation Level targets, and accepts budget note reporting. Many programs and projects throughout the City are impacted by this action. The proposed legislation does not change any City policies.

Financial and Budgetary Impacts

Approval of the exhibits to this ordinance reflect appropriation changes in 53 funds by a net increase of $330.1 million, primarily resulting from truing up beginning fund balance and other resources between fiscal years. There is a net increase of $30.0 million to General Fund contingency accounts. These changes are summarized in Exhibit 2. Additional detail is available on the CBO website:…

This legislation results in a net increase of 50.0 positions. Positions by bureau are provided in Exhibit 5.

Community Impacts and Community Involvement

The public had the opportunity to provide online testimony for several weeks leading up to a publicly-noticed hearing, where community members may also provide virtual testimony. This supplemental budget is a small part of the much larger budget process; the rest of the budget process is subject to extensive public outreach in the form of public meetings, public hearings, Council work sessions, requests and analysis provided online, and the inclusion of public budget advisors.

100% Renewable Goal

This action does not specifically impact the City’s total energy or renewable energy use.

Budget Office Financial Impact Analysis

As noted in the Financial and Budgetary Impacts above, this ordinance results in a net increase in appropriations of $330.1 million.

This includes a deposit of $13.85 million into unrestricted contingency, $13.85 million into the Capital Set Aside account, and $2.3 million into policy set aside accounts per FY 2022-23 Adopted Budget direction. No General Fund contingency resources are being allocated to bureaus in the Ordinance. Changes in allocation are summarized in Exhibit 2 of the filing. Additional detail is available on the CBO website:
