That the City Council
adopt Resolution 2002 - , a resolution of the City Council of the City
of Rancho Palos Verdes, amending Resolution 2002-45, the budget appropriation
for fiscal year 2002-03, for a budget adjustment to the City’s View Restoration
Program within the General Fund.
BACKGROUND / DISCUSSION
The adopted FY 2002
– 03 budget includes a total of $138,000 for contract tree trimming services.
This includes $103,000 for the maintenance of city trees that is managed
by the Public Works Department, and $35,000 for tree trimming and tree
removals related to the view restoration and preservation process that
is managed by the Building Planning and Code Enforcement Department.
In an effort towards
better project management it is requested that the appropriation currently
included in the budget for the Public Works Department for view matters
be re-appropriated to the budget for the Building Planning and Code Enforcement
Department. The attached budget resolution accomplishes this.
Adopting the staff
recommendation will re-appropriate funds in the FY 2002 – 03 budget for
view preservation and restorations matters from the Public Works Department
to the Building Planning and Code Enforcements Department.
With this action,
management of the view related City tree maintenance budget will shift
from Public Works staff to View Restoration staff. Since View Restoration
staff are contract employees, there will be a slight increase in the View
Restoration contract. Staff estimates that the increase in the contract
will be approximately $10,000/year.
This cost will be
offset by the reduced involvement by Public Works staff. Therefore, the
recommended action is fiscally neutral.
