SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND:  There are remaining funds within the Sanitation Budget that are in need of being transferred to defray the additional cost of collection and disposal services for the current fiscal budget for 2005-2006.

 

The attached ordinance lists the line items for transferring $13,847.00 to line item 540-72-4250-52-3000 to cover a part of the appropriation for additional funds needed.

SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND:  Expenditures have increased for the current fiscal year of 2005-2006 in sanitation collection and disposal costs due to increases in commercial tonnage, residential homes built and the construction roll-off business.
