STATEMENT OF URGENCY

FISCAL IMPACT

This recommendation requests the City Manager Department to provide a donation to Partners of Parks for the Martin Luther King Jr. Park Block Party and Resource Fair.  The total appropriation increase of $470 in the General Fund Group in the City Manager Department will be offset by a decrease of appropriation of the Sixth Council District One-time District Priority Funds in the General Fund Group in the Citywide Activities Department.  The recommendation is anticipated to require a minimal level of staff hours beyond the budgeted scope of duties and is expected to have minimal impact on existing City Council priorities.
