TITLE
Recommendation to adopt resolution authorizing the Financial Management Department to record a 10-year interfund loan of $21,832,202 between the Fleet Services Fund Group and the General Fund Group from the General Fund’s contributions for vehicle replacement in the Fleet Acquisitions Fund, to reimburse $21,832,202 from the General Fund Group to the Water Fund Group, pursuant to the outcome of Measure M litigation.
