RESOLUTION REVISING THE THRESHOLD FOR APPROVAL OF TRANSFERS BY THE BUDGET DIRECTOR/COUNTY AUDITOR

WHEREAS, the Budget Director has reviewed said threshold for approval of transfers and has recommended that the threshold be increased to account for 20 years of inflation; now, therefore be it

RESOLVED, That effective immediately, the authority to approve budget transfers of $500.00 or less within each of the summarized objects of expenditure (.1, .2, .4, etc.) be delegated to the Budget Director/County Auditor; other transfers requiring the moving of monies from one object to another or other budget functions shall continue to be reviewed and approved by the appropriate oversight Committees and the Board of Supervisors; and, be it further

RESOLVED, That upon the recommendation of the Budget Director and Committee on Finance, the Budget Director/County Auditor be and hereby is authorized to approve transfer requests from Department Heads of $500.00 or less, effective immediately; and, be it further
