ASSEMBLY AGENDA/MANAGER'S REPORT
THE CITY AND BOROUGH OF JUNEAU, ALASKA

PUBLIC HEARING: Resolution 2933 An Emergency Appropriation Resolution Appropriating $700,000 for COVID-19 Testing Equipment to be Operated by Bartlett Regional Hospital; Funding Provided by Bartlett Regional Hospital's CARES Act Funding.

MANAGER'S REPORT:

This emergency appropriation resolution would appropriate $700,000 for the purchase of testing equipment to expand the capacity of local testing for COVID-19. The purchase of equipment was already authorized under Ordinance 2019-06(AI), however this resolution would reappropriate the funds for the equipment from CBJ’s CARES Act funding to Bartlett Regional Hospital’s CARES Act funding. Emergency Ordinance 2020-09(AG) would deappropriate the funds from CBJ’s CARES Act funding, increasing the balance of unobligated funds available in the CARES Act Special Revenue Fund.

 

This ordinance is necessary to maximize CBJ’s allocation of CARES Act funding for utilization in other programs with need.

RECOMMENDATION:

The City Manager recommends the Assembly adopt this emergency resolution.
