Providing Additional Funding For The Renovation Of Fire Station 2; Making An Appropriation From The Photo Enforcement Fund 288 To Provide Funding For The Project.

b

WHEREAS, the City Council, in F/S R-07-344, created the Photo Enforcement Fund 288 and appropriated up to $5.1 million in excess revenue from the Safe Traffic Operations Program from prior fiscal years to the fund; and

WHEREAS, F/S R-07-344 provided that the money deposited into Fund 288 was to be used for “non-recurring public safety expenditures”; and

 WHEREAS, the FY/09 proposed budget estimates that the available fund balance in Photo Enforcement Fund 288 at the end of Fiscal year 2009 - after paying for the costs of the Redflex contract, the costs of the Administrative Hearing Office and APD staff, and a remittance to the State - will be $8,078,000; and

WHEREAS, Fire Station 2 is one of the oldest and busiest fire stations in the City, and, as such, is in dire need of significant renovations and improvements; and

WHEREAS, Fire Station 2 has been provided a total of $1,542,000 in funding from different sources - $488,000 was set aside in the 2003 G.O. Bond program, $858,000 was set aside in the 2007 G.O. Bond program, and $196,000 was set aside from Public Safety Quarter Cent Tax; and

WHEREAS, Fire Station 2 renovations have been on the drawing board for more than five years, and the cost of the project has increased over that time period; and

WHEREAS, further delays will no doubt result in additional increases in the cost of the renovations; and

WHEREAS, Public Safety Objective 3 in R-08-64, as amended, calls for construction to begin on Phase I of the renovation by the second quarter of FY/09; and

                     WHEREAS, the estimated cost of the renovations to Fire Station 2 is $2,400,000, which leaves approximately $900,000 of the cost unfunded at this point; and

                     WHEREAS, the City Council finds that it is the best interest of the City to provide the additional approximately $900,000 in funding necessary to complete Fire Station 2 from the fund balance of the Photo Enforcement Fund 288.

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL, THE GOVERNING BODY OF THE CITY OF ALBUQUERQUE:

                     Section 1.  That the following appropriation is made from the available fund balance in the Photo Enforcement Fund 288:

                     PHOTO ENFORCEMENT FUND - 288

                                          Transfer to Capital Acquisition Fund 305                                                                $900,000                                          Section 2.  That the following appropriation in the Capital Acquisition Fund 305 is increased by the amount indicated below:

                     FIRE FUND 305

                                          Fire Station 2 Renovation                     Transfer from Fund 288                     $900,000
