REQUEST FOR COUNCIL ACTION City of Fountain Inn, South Carolina To: Mayor and Members of City Council From: Shawn M. Bell, City Administrator

May 14, 2020 Regular City Council

Meeting

☒ Ordinance/First Reading ☐ Ordinance/Second Reading ☐ Resolution/First & Final Reading Agenda Date Requested: May 14, 2020

Ordinance/Resolution Caption: Ordinance 2020-001

An Ordinance to update and amend the FY 2020 Budget for the City of Fountain Inn to account for appropriations made by City Council through the fiscal year.

Summary Background:

When a municipality adopts its annual budget ordinance, staff and elected officials are projecting receipts and expenditures of government. During a fiscal year, sometimes extenuating circumstances may make it

appropriate to adopt an amendatory ordinance to reflect deviations in certain line items of the budget.

Due to the unprecedented residential growth in Fountain Inn, certain revenue line items such as Fire Service Area Revenue (+$160,000), Laurens County Taxes (+$68,000), Greenville County Taxes (+$55,000), and

Variance/Rezoning Fees (+$7,500) were underbudgeted, leading to an increase of $290,500 in additional revenue.

With the addition of $115,400 from fund balance, the total revenue increase to the FY20 budget is $405,900.

On the expenditure side, some line items were underbudgeted such as payroll consultant fees (did not budget for IdealHR services to extend beyond September 2019), Police & Fire Education Incentive Pay, Special Events Marketing, and internet expenditures. In addition, a website audit was performed, and 800 radios were purchased.

These additional expenditures totaled $405,900.

Impact If Denied:

The City’s auditors will likely document the budget to actual variances as a finding on the FY20 Audit/CAFR.

Impact If Approved:

This amendment will address budget to actual variances, minimizing the risk of findings on the City’s Audit/CAFR.

Financial Impact:

The total increase to General Fund Revenue/*Other Financing Sources is $405,900 The total increase to General Fund Expenditures is $405,900

*Appropriation of a budgeted use of fund balance totaling $115,400
