Finance Director Blaisdell presented the 2019-2020 budget adjustments reflecting the carryforward of funding from 2018 and re-appropriation in 2019.  The re-appropriation is comprised primarily of beginning fund balance, LRF balances, new and continuing grant funding and additional funding for final City Hall and Police Department items.  Notwithstanding the changes, Director Blaisdell indicated that the City’s financial position overall has not materially changed.  She noted that the significant change in Restricted Funds are reflective of  carryforwards in revenues and expenditures in Parks CIP, Public Works CIP and Municipal CIP.  Director Blaisdell highlighted revenue adjustments in the General Fund and Police/Public Safety, as well as proposed expenditure projection changes in the General Fund and Strategic Reserve.  She indicated that the financial forecast has been updated to include all the carryforward adjustments and that all existing services and legal and contractual obligations can be met with existing revenues through the forecast period.
