In a routine procedure, the Ann Arbor city council has amended the current fiscal year’s budget – FY 2014, which ends June 30, 2014 – to ensure that expenditures do not exceed appropriated amounts. The amendment ensures compliance with Public Act 621 of 1978.
The total general fund budget amendment was $60,000. For all other funds, the amendment approved by the council at its June 2 meeting totals $310,000.
The non-general fund amount will cover right-of-way maintenance and purchase of materials that were necessary to deal with the severe winter weather.
The general fund amount was the city’s cost for the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority’s special election held on May 6. That amount will eventually be reimbursed by Washtenaw County – which in turn will receive reimbursement from the AAATA to cover the roughly $100,000 total cost of the election.
This brief was filed from the city council’s chambers on the second floor of city hall, located at 301 E. Huron.
