TITLE

WITHDRAWN

Recommendation to increase appropriations in the General Fund Group in the City Manager Department by $5,000, offset by the Sixth Council District One-time District Priority Funds transferred from the Citywide Activities Department to provide a contribution to New Generations to support food giveaways to low-income communities; and

 

Decrease appropriations in the General Fund Group in the Citywide Activities Department by $5,000 to offset a transfer to the City Manager Department.

 

DISCUSSION

Non-profit organizations have been a great asset to the community by serving as liaisons to assist with basic needs such as food, diapers, rental assistance, and shelter for residents affected by COVID-19 circumstances such as the illness itself or reduction of work hours. New Generations has been serving the Central area through the COVID-19 pandemic by providing food through partnerships with the local food banks and other neighborhood organizations. This contribution will assist New Generations in purchasing shelving, refrigeration, and other resources to continue food giveaways to low-income communities.

 

This matter was reviewed by Budget Manager Grace H. Yoon on November 24, 2020.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

This recommendation requests the City Manager to provide a contribution to New Generations. The total appropriation increase in the General Fund Group in the City Manager Department by $5,000 is offset by the Sixth Council District One-time District Priority Funds in the Citywide Activities Department. Implementing this recommendation is anticipated to result in a minimal impact on staff hours beyond normal budgeted scope of duties and is expected to have a minimal impact on existing City Council priorities.

 

SUGGESTED ACTION

Approve recommendation.

 

Respectfully Submitted,

DEE ANDREWS

VICE MAYOR, SIXTH DISTRICT
