DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 95.9% of the existing operating budget. It represents 84.9% of the total request ($9,766,747) for this program. The major changes reflected in this analysis include: reducing $46,129 of interagency transfers for risk management premiums; a decrease of $137,000 of Interim Emergency Board funds; a reduction of $27,294 of federal funds for non-recurring acquisitions and major repairs; personnel reductions; and the transfer of the Baton Rouge Alcohol and Drug Abuse Unit from the East Louisiana State Hospital campus to the Capital Area Human Services District. The changes should have no impact on the delivery of these services.
