C.Snowcat Purchase and Sheriff's Office Budget Amendment Request
Departments: Sheriff

(Sheriff Ingrid Braun) - The Sheriff's Office Requests approval to purchase a replacement snowcat, as authorized by the Emergency Management Performance Grant, and a corresponding budget amendment.  

Recommended Action: 1. Approve the purchase of a snowcat for $150,000. 2. Approve a budget amendment to reduce Emergency Services Revenue by $53,000 to $75,000, reduce salary and benefit expenses by 223,209 to $0, reduce services and supplies by $32,791 to $0 and increase capital equipment to $150,000 leaving net cost to the General Fund of $75,000 which is the cash match on the grant (4/5ths vote required).    

Fiscal Impact: This item defunds the operating budget for the County's Office of Emergency Services which includes salaries and benefits of $123,209 and supplies and services of $32,791, and repurposes the operating budget towards the one-time purchase of the snowcat.  The salaries and benefits appropriation can be absorbed into the Sheriff's operating budget without further using our reserves or contingency so long as budgeted vacant positions remain unfilled and result in budget savings this year to offset the loss of funding.
