DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 101.8% of the existing operating budget. It represents 95.8% of the total request ($1,337,027) for this program. All applicable statewide policy adjustments have been applied to this ancillary program. The increase in recommended over existing operating budget is tied to personnel costs – additional overtime to address workload demands; additional retirement contribution funding associated with employee who replaces Deferred retirement Option Plan (D.R.O.P) employee who is scheduled to retire July of 1999; and termination pay for the retiring employee. The major differences between total request and total recommended are projected inflation costs $31,019 not being funded and various statewide policy reductions totaling $6,641. The recommended funding level provides adequate funding for this ancillary program to continue current level of service with emphasis and priority being safety of operations.
