DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 105.1% of the existing operating budget. It represents 89.3% of the total request ($8,292,085) for this program. The major changes reflected in this analysis include an increase in interagency transfers by $290,771 for risk management premiums and by $20,260 for the cost of an additional 3 retirees. Federal funds were reduced by $20,890 for a non-recurring carryforward for acquisitions and major repairs. $132,172 in interagency transfers and (6) vacant positions were reduced for Personnel Reductions. The changes should have no significant impact on the delivery of these services.
