Clean and Lien Program Budget Increase

The Planning and Development Department is requesting a budget increase in the amount of $75,000.00 for account #202-1525-474.45-90 “Contractual Services” Project No. EX-1950. This line item and project number is utilized for the City’s Clean and Lien program. The clean and lien program is generally budgeted $100,000.00 for the fiscal year. Due to COVID 19 the Clean and Lien program was not budgeted for the full amount, the remaining balance of $48,347.83 rolled over from FY-2020 to FY-2021.

A significant increase in transient camps throughout the city prompted Code Enforcement and Gallup PD to create a Task Force to clear out and dismantle these camps. The effort between Code Enforcement and the Gallup PD SET Team yielded eight transient camps being cleared and dismantled which exhausted the entire clean and lien budget. An additional $75,000.00 is needed in order to continue to clear out the transient camps as well as abate regular Code Enforcement cases needing clean up. 

Fiscal Impact:
Fiscal Impact is $75,000.00 transferred from 202 Fund Balance.
Staff recommends approval for a budget increase of $75,000.00 transferred from 202 Fund Balance
