ITEM

Consider an ordinance authorizing an emergency expenditure as an amendment to the Fiscal Year 2019-20 budget due to unforeseen expenditures necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

PREFACE

The proposed ordinance authorizes an emergency expenditure as an amendment to the Fiscal Year 2019-20 budget due to unforeseen expenditures necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The City of Baytown can amend its budget only in cases of grave public necessity to meet an unusual and unforeseen condition that could not have been included in the original budget through the use of reasonably diligent thought and attention. It is projected that the expenses associated with the pandemic will be around $3,000,000. This ordinance places $3,000,000 in the COVID-19 Fund from the General Fund balance. An application has been made to Harris County requesting a share of the funding allocated to the County under the CARES Act. If the County does allocate any such funding to the City this will be repaid into the General Fund balance.

Staff recommends approval.
