DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 78.2% of the existing operating budget. It represents 64.2% of the total request ($1,363,048) for this program. The decrease in the recommended level is primarily attributed to the statewide Risk Management adjustment. The personnel reduction is due to the elimination of two (2) vacant positions along with associated funding. The elimination of these vacant positions, along with the attrition adjustment and the reduction of other line items, are recommended to fully fund the 21 recommended positions.
