The revenue appropriated by this Ordinance represents funds from the Transfer Tax in excess of the revenue relied on by the Board of Estimates in determining the tax levy required to balance the budget for Fiscal Year 2017.

 

This additional revenue could not have been reasonably anticipated when the Ordinance of Estimates for Fiscal Year 2017 was formulated.

 

This appropriation is made necessary by a material change in circumstances since the Ordinance of Estimates for Fiscal Year 2017 was formulated or is for a new program that could not have been reasonably anticipated when that Ordinance of Estimates was formulated.

 

On June 14, 2017, the Board of Estimates recommended this appropriation to the City Council.

 

Section 1.  Be it ordained by the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore, That $6,000,000 shall be made available to the Fire Department - Service 602 (Fire Suppression and Emergency Rescue) as a Supplementary General Fund Operating Appropriation for Fiscal Year 2017, to provide funding for additional operating expenses.  The source of revenue for this appropriation is funds from the Transfer Tax in excess of the amount from this source that was relied on by the Board of Estimates in determining the tax levy required to balance the budget for Fiscal Year 2017.

 

Section 2.  And be it further ordained, That this Ordinance takes effect on the date it is enacted.
