TITLE
Recommendation to approve the Fiscal Year 2020 designation of one-time District Priority Funds for City Council District infrastructure projects and existing programs; and

Approve related budget appropriation adjustments for Fiscal Year 2020 in accordance with existing City Council policy. (Citywide)

DISCUSSION
Since Fiscal Year 2012 (FY 12), the City Council has appropriated one-time funds for infrastructure projects and existing City programs on a “Divide by Nine” basis (known as District Priority Funds), allocated equally to each Council District. Administrative procedures for the implementation of the District Priority Funds were developed and distributed in a memorandum dated November 9, 2015, to remain in compliance with the City Charter and Long Beach Municipal Code. In accordance with these procedures, City Council approval is requested to designate existing District Priority Funds for the specific infrastructure projects and existing programs that are managed by operating departments described in Attachment A. As these one-time funds were originally budgeted in the Citywide Activities Department, budget appropriation adjustments are necessary for the projects and existing programs, in accordance with administrative procedures.

Other allocations to functions that are not department-managed capital/infrastructure projects or existing programs may be brought forward by individual Council Districts for City Council authorization.

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Amy R. Webber on January 29, 2020 and by Budget Manager Grace H. Yoon, on January 27, 2020.
