TITLE

Recommendation to increase appropriations in the General Fund Group in the City Manager Department by $400, offset by the Fourth Council District One-time District Priority Funds transferred from the Citywide Activities Department to provide a contribution to the Historical Society of Long Beach for their 26th annual Cemetery Tour; and

 

Decrease appropriations in the General Fund Group in the Citywide Activities Department by $400 to offset a transfer to the City Manager Department.

 

DISCUSSION

On the last Saturday of October, the Historical Society of Long Beach hosts an exciting cemetery tour in some of the city’s oldest cemeteries. This one-of-a-kind living history celebration attracts 1,500 people and engages the support of city agencies, community and regional leaders, and more than 120 volunteers. The all-ages event features graveside performances by actors, musical performances, historical displays, and presentations, a Dia de los Muertos ofrenda, and more, in a unique, park-like setting.   This event helps the HSLB present inclusive community history that creates greater understanding of our local area.

 

This matter was reviewed by Budget Manager Grace H. Yoon on September 12, 2022.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

This recommendation requests the City Manager Department to provide a contribution to the Historical Society of Long Beach for their annual Cemetery Tour. The total appropriation increase of $400 in the General Fund Group in the City Manager Department will be offset by a decrease in appropriation of the Fourth Council District One-time District Priority Funds in the General Fund in the Citywide Activities Department. The requested action is anticipated to require a minimal level of staff hours beyond the normal budgeted scope of duties and expected to have minimal impact on existing City Council priorities.

 

SUGGESTED ACTION

Approve recommendation.

 

Respectfully Submitted,

DARYL SUPERNAW COUNCILMAN,

FOURTH DISTRICT
