Rancho Palos Verdes City Council Agenda July 16,2002
   

TO:HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL

FROM:DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS

DATE:JULY 16, 2002

SUBJECT:RE-APPROPRIATION OF FUNDS FOR TREE TRIMMING FOR VIEW RESTORATION AND VIEW PRESERVATION

RECOMMENDATION

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.

 

CONCLUSION

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.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

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.
