SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND: The budget amount was based on regular elections, and expenses for run-off elections were not anticipated. The requested appropriation in the amount of $8,100 would provide sufficient budget to cover all actual election expenses. The run-off elections caused the total election expenses to exceed the budget amount.

SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND: A petition has been submitted by Navin Shah, President of Tarula Investments, Inc. owner of Kings Inn Motel and Restaurant (formerly Sherwoods Bar and Grill) to subdivide the motel and restaurant into two (2) parcels. Upon approval of this subdivision, the motel and amenities will be located on a 2.66 acre tract, and the restaurant will be located on a 0.83 acre tract. This subdivision is being accomplished so that the restaurant can be marketed by Tarula Investments, Inc. This petition has been submitted under CFPCO Section 8-7-13(f) Short-Cut Method. The Planning and Zoning Board unanimously approved and signed the Final Plat on February 1, 2006.
20. Consider an Ordinance by the City Council for the City of Forest Park, Georgia, to appropriate additional funds in the amount of $90,000 to cover increased fuel costs; to repeal all ordinances and parts of ordinances in conflict herewith; to provide an effective date; and for other purposes
SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND: The average cost for fuel for the 2004-2005 budget year was $1.53 per gallon. The current budget year of 2005-2006 was figured on that average.
Due to the escalating prices of fuel since the early fall with relation to the hurricanes, these prices have continued to soar. The current average for this budget year is $2.26 per gallon. We had several purchases as high as $2.59 per gallon.
The increased fuel costs has extended the cost of operation in the Fleet Services Division. The line item for Gas All Departments (600-27-4900-53-1270) will need to be supplemented by $90,000 from the unappropriated balance of the General Fund to get us through the remaining budget year. Prices of fuel have been relatively stable over the last month or so and as long as we do not have another natural disaster, this amount should get us to the new budget year.
