ORDINANCES, RESOLUTIONS AND CONTRACTS
1. Approval of a resolution titled, “A resolution transferring appropriations within the 2012-2013 budget”
City Administrator Dave Kanner presented staff report.
City Recorder Barbara Christensen explained that the request for transfer of appropriations involved rate correction to the City of Ashland’s merchant account for VISA merchant fees. She stated that this was due to the conversion in the Utility Department for new Utility Billing software. Staff is working to resolve the issue but due to several agencies involved, it was not possible to resolve prior to the fiscal year end.
Fire Chief John Karns clarified the need to transfer funds due to an unforeseen increase in bad debt associated with emergency medical services. He explained that there is some increase in revenue and that it is close to equaling the increase in bad debt. He felt that this would be a one-time occurrence.
