body

 

By authority of

                     Article VI - Board of Estimates

                     Section 8(b)(3) and (c)

                     Baltimore City Charter

                     (1996 Edition)

 

                     Recitals

 

                     The revenue appropriated by this Ordinance represents funds from Speed Camera Revenue  ($3,000,000) and from Red Light Camera Revenue ($2,000,000) 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 2019.

 

                     This additional revenue could not have been reasonably anticipated when the Ordinance of Estimates for Fiscal Year 2019 was formulated.

 

                     This appropriation is made necessary by a material change in circumstances since the Ordinance of Estimates for Fiscal Year 2019 was formulated or is for a new program that could not have been reasonably anticipated when that Ordinance of Estimates was formulated.

 

                     On May 8, 2019, 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 the $5,000,000 shall be made available to the Police Department - Service 622 (Police Patrol) as a Supplementary General Fund Operating Appropriation for Fiscal Year 2019, to provide funding for additional operating expenses.  The source of revenue for this appropriation is funds from Speed Camera Revenue ($3,000,000) and from Red Light Camera Revenue ($2,000,000) 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 2019.

 

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