COUNCIL ACTION:  Approved on 2/12/2019 

DATE: 2/12/2019 REFERENCE NO.: **G-19481 LOG NAME: 03FY2018 ADJUSTED CCPD BUDGET
CODE: G TYPE: CONSENT PUBLIC HEARING: NO
SUBJECT:   Approve Adjustments to Fiscal Year 2018 Crime Control and Prevention District Budget, Shifting Amounts Among Initiatives with No Net Increase to the Overall Budget (ALL COUNCIL DISTRICTS)

RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the City Council approve adjustments to the FY2018 Crime Control and Prevention District Budget to reallocate amounts among initiatives, resulting in no net increase to the overall budget.

 
DISCUSSION:

The purpose of this Mayor and Council Communication (M&C) is to take actions to approve adjustments to the Crime Control and Prevent District (CCPD) budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018, shifting amounts among initiatives and resulting in no overall increase.

In accordance with the Texas Local Government Code Chapter 363 and the CCPD Board of Director's adopted local budget rule, the FY2018 CCPD budget was initially adopted by the Board on September 7, 2017 and approved by the Fort Worth City Council on on September 12, 2017.  

The CCPD budget consists of five funding initiatives, each of which includes a number of specific programs.  Under the Board's adopted financial policies, a budget adjustment is needed when shifting funding between initiatives without increasing the overall total budget, and approval of a CCPD budget adjustment requires action by both the Board and the City Council.  

After the FY18 budget was initially approved, staff became aware that the funding for overtime and workers' compensation had been structured incorrectly and needed to be reallocated among initiatives to more accurately reflect true costs within each initiative.  In connection with the recent closing of the fiscal year, it was determined that additional funding was needed in the Equipment, Technology and Infrastructure Initiative and that the Recruitment and Training initiative experienced sufficient savings to cover that need.  

The Board approved these budget adjustments at their meetings on May 15, 2018 and February 12, 2019.  City Council approval for these adjustments is required under the Board's financial policies in order to finalize the adjustments, balance the budget, and facilitate fiscal year closing.

Note - Other adjustments, reallocating savings in some initiatives to offset shortfalls in others, were approved by the Board on August 28, 2018, and by the City Council on September 18, 2018 (M&C G-19374).

The following chart shows the final FY2018 CCPD budget at fiscal year end following approval of the these adjustment by the Fort Worth City Council.
