This item seeks to augment the FY15 Capital Projects fund (1404) budget to partially cover the costs of Change Orders #1 and #2 on the Alf project. The funding source for the augmentation is a $411,071 refund received from TMWA which represented a refund of several years water over-billings at Alf. The procedures and requirements for budget augmentations are outlined in NRS 354.598005 and NAC 354.410. This augmentation request meets those requirements.
March 23, 2014 - Council approved a contract to construct renovations at Alf as part of the Alf Sorensen Pool Area Ventilation & Building Envelope Improvement Project (Alf project) approved on the FY14 CIP
August 11, 2014 - Council approved Change Order #1 in the amount of $586,465 to address structural issues discovered once construction began. Appropriations from another project (City Hall HVAC Upgrades) were transferred to cover Change Order #1 on the Alf project
August 12, 2014 - A check was received from TMWA in the amount of $411,071 representing a reimbursement of several years of over-billing for water at the Alf. The amount was recorded as revenue in the General Fund.
August 13, 2014 - City Manager instructed Financial Services to transfer the TMWA refund amount from General Fund to Capital Projects Fund (1404) to help cover the unanticipated costs of the Alf project, and to preserve as much as possible the funding for the City Hall HVAC Upgrades. The transfer was posted to FY14 and is therefore a part of the ending fund balance in the Capital Projects Fund in the FY14 audited financial statements.
November 24, 2014 - Council approved Change Order #2 in the amount of $205,000 for additional structural issues discovered as part of the Alf project
Today - We are seeking to provide FY15 appropriations in the Capital Projects Fund in an amount equal to the TMWA refund.
The provisions of NRS 354.598005(1) govern the procedures and requirements for augmenting or amending a budget; given that anticipated resources available exceed those estimated. Available resources are defined in NAC 354.410, and include unappropriated ending fund balances of Capital Projects Funds. As evidenced in the FY14 audited ending fund balance of the Capital Project Fund, sufficient resources are available for this augmentation.
To augment the budget, NRS 354.598005 requires the governing board adopt a resolution providing for the augmentation. This requirement applies to all fund types. NAC 354.420 requires a “Revised Revenue Schedule” (included as Attachment A with this agenda item) be submitted along with the resolution to the State of Nevada Department of Taxation
Attached is a resolution to augment the City’s Capital Projects Fund.
Augmentation of the Capital Project Fund’s budget will be effective upon delivery of an executed copy of the resolution to the Department of Taxation. Delivery must be before June 30, 2015
Council could decide not to adopt the resolution to augment the FY15 budget. This could cause expenditures in the Capital Projects Fund to exceed appropriations, and would therefore be a violation of NRS 354.626. The violation would be noted in the audited financial statements.
Council could decide to adopt the resolution to augment the FY15 budget and provide appropriations equal to the TMWA refund of $411,071.
I move to adopt Resolution No. 3277 to augment the FY15 Capital Projects Fund budget.
