TITLE
Recommendation to adopt resolution requesting that the Board of Harbor Commissioners approve the transfer of five percent (5%) of Fiscal Year 2022 (FY 22) gross operating revenue, from the Harbor Fund Group to the Tidelands Operating Fund Group, with a true-up adjustment, if necessary, to reflect the final gross revenue amount upon issuance of the Harbor Department’s FY 22 audited financial statements.

DISCUSSION
City Charter Section 1209(c)(4) provides for the transfer of a maximum of 5 percent of Harbor Department gross operating revenue. The City Charter provides that the City Council, by a two-third (2/3) vote expressed by Resolution, may request the transfer in order to meet the lawful obligations of the Tidelands Operating Fund Group. The provision requires a majority vote of the Harbor Board of Commissioners, expressed by Resolution, to enact the transfer, determining that the funds will not be needed for Harbor Department operations. The Harbor Department Proposed FY 23 Budget, approved by the Harbor Commission, will include a transfer amount calculated on 5 percent of FY 22 operating revenue, which is currently estimated at $22,786,322. This amount is approximately a 5 percent increase from the transfer amount to be received for the previous fiscal year. Approval of the transfer to Tidelands will be considered by the Harbor Commission as a separate budget action in response to this formal request by the City Council.

Tidelands Fund Requirements

Department operating revenues generated in the Tidelands area (parking, leases, service agreements, etc.) and Tidelands oil revenue are insufficient to fund Tidelands operations. The Harbor Department revenue transfer is a critical funding source for Tidelands operations citywide, including support for lifeguards, waterfront maintenance and operations, the Convention Center, and debt service payments on City bonds issued to support the aquarium.
