Summary: The Gallup Police Department is seeking a budget adjustment to transfer and expend funding for “Watchguard” Police Vehicle in-unit camera systems in the amount of $15,510. The cost for each camera systems is $5,170 (Grand total: $15,510).
Note: With the recent filling of sworn officer vacancies within the Department in the last six months, current strategic department priority is to utilize this added manpower for Uniformed Patrol Services. This "restructuring" of our Department requires more marked patrol vehicles for citizen calls for service. In the last few months the Gallup Police Department has increased Patrol Services by ten (10) additional uniformed patrol officer positons.
Attachments: “Grant Agreement” (with signatures) contract number TS04540, Exhibit A (ENDWI) End Driving While Impaired, Exhibit B (BKLUP) (CIOT) Buckle Up and Click It Or Ticket, Exhibit C (STEP) (DNOS), Selective Traffic Enforcement Program and 100 Days and Nights of Summer, Exhibit D, certifications and assurances.
Requesting a total budget increase of $100,000 dollars for the 2018-2019 budget. The requested money will cover the cost of purchases that were carried over from the previous year, as well as unforeseen needs around the course. A total of $45,000 dollars will be added to line Item 101.1023.432.46-17, and will be used for seed, hydro mulch, and fertilizer. A total of $30,000 dollars will be split equally among line items 101.1023.432.44-40, 101.1023.432.46-15, and 101.1023.432.47-10. The money put in these line Items will replenish funds that were removed to cover cost throughout year. I am requesting that $10,000 dollars be put into line item 101.1023.432.48-45. The money will be used to replace the valve between ponds 1 and 2. The remaining $15,000 will be placed in line item 101.1023.432.48-20. The money will be used to purchase a weather station. The weather station provides crucial data that conserves water and lowers the electrical use for the course. These savings have monetary value, which can be in the thousands of dollars annually.
Each quarter, the Finance department reviews any changes to the budget and submits these changes to council for approval. The following areas are reviewed: personnel, operations, capital outlay and transfers in and out of each fund. The Department of Finance and Administration (DFA) requires Council to pass a resolution for all budget increases, decreases, and transfers between funds. DFA further requires approval of the report of actuals showing cumulative activity for the fiscal year. The report to DFA regarding budget revisions is due January 31, 2019.
This revision encompasses all budget changes processed October 1, 2018 thru December 31, 2018 (Quarter 2 of FY2019).
Summary: For CDBG funding, each local government must annually certify that it will affirmatively further fair housing. To that end, a “Fair Housing Proclamation” must be adopted by the local governing body at an open public meeting which publicizes the community’s commitment to fair housing.Staff proposes starting the New Year by proclaiming 18 February 2019 as Fair Housing Day. This date is also the day after Presidents’ Day holiday.
Recommendation: Approved the attached proclamation of 18 February 2019 as Fair Housing Day. Proposed proclamation is attached.
