The FY 2010-11 decision package for this position is hereby approved.

f. The actions amending the FY 2009-10 budget contained in this ordinance are binding City policy.

Section 2. The Council declares that an emergency exists in order that FY 2009-10 winter budget adjustments are implemented without delay; therefore, this ordinance shall be in full force and effect from and after its passage by Council.
