This supplemental appropriation of $361,000 provides funding to support an immediate need to add additional staffing to Capital City Fire & Rescue (CCFR) operations. The additional staffing is being added for the purpose of providing expanded EMS service and fire response readiness.
This ordinance will appropriate the funds needed to pay for the additional personnel costs within CCFR. The funds will come from the general fund’s fund balance.
This issue was discussed with the Committee of the Whole (COW) at its July 11, 2018, meeting. The COW directed staff to prepare an appropriating ordinance and move it to the full Assembly for introduction and public hearing.
At the Assembly meeting held on July 23, 2018, the Assembly referred the ordinance to the Assembly Finance Committee (AFC) for review at its meeting on August 8, 2018.
