TITLE

Recommendation to increase appropriations in the General Fund Group in the City Manager Department by $2,500, offset by the Third Council District One-Time District Priority Funds transferred from the Citywide Activities Department to provide a contribution to the WomenShelter of Long Beach; and

 

Decrease appropriations in the General Fund Group in the Citywide Activities Department by $2,500 to offset a transfer to the City Manager Department.

 

DISCUSSION

Since 1977, WomenShelter of Long Beach (WSLB) has helped thousands of women, men, and children overcome the trauma caused by domestic abuse. WSLB assists families by providing safe housing, counseling, case management, education, health, and legal advocacy at no cost. In order to impact future generations, our Domestic Violence Prevention Team goes into middle schools, high schools, and colleges to educate youth about the warning signs of unhealthy relationships. As a result of the incredible work being done every day, the City of Long Beach should support the WomenShelter of Long Beach.

 

This item has been reviewed by Recover Budget Officer Dee Okam on September 25, 2022.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

This recommendation requests the City Manager to provide a contribution to the WomenShelter of Long Beach. The total appropriation increase of $2,500 in the General Fund Group in the City Manager Department will be offset by a decrease of appropriation of Third Council District One-Time District Priority Funds in the General Fund Group in the Citywide Activities Department. This recommendation is anticipated to require a minimal level of staff hours beyond normal budgeted scope of duties and have a minimal impact on City Council priorities.  There is no local job impact associated with this item.

 

SUGGESTED ACTION

Approve recommendation.

 

Respectfully Submitted,

SUZIE PRICE COUNCILWOMAN,
