ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 89.2% of the existing operating budget. It represents 83.1% of the total request ($1,220,040) for this program. The change is primarily due to a decrease in risk management premiums, non-recurring funds for the purchase of a school bus, and the elimination of a position which has been vacant for more than twelve months.
