At its Aug. 19, 2013 meeting, the Ann Arbor District Library board approved three minor adjustments to the 2012-13 budget, for the prior fiscal year ending June 30, 2013. The adjustments totaled $11,000.
Ken Nieman – AADL’s associate director of finance, HR and operations – had previously indicated that such adjustments would be necessary. At the board’s July 15, 2013 meeting, he told the board that three items were over budget for the year ending June 30: utilities, communications and software. The board made some budget adjustments at its June 17, 2013 meeting based on estimates that turned out to be too low. Nieman had said the board would be asked to make additional adjustments to the previous year’s budget at its August meeting for these three line items.
The resolution approved unanimously on Aug. 19 transferred $8,000 from capital outlays – moving $4,000 to the utilities line item, and $4,000 to the communications line item. Another transfer shifted $3,000 from circulation supplies to the software line item.
