43.               Resolution establishing a revolving fund of $200.00 for the Probation Department Drug Court The Probation Department Drug Court has the need to establish a petty cash fund.As Drug Court has grown and evolved employees are expending their own monies for expenses relating to Drug Court and then having to submit a claim for reimbursement.It would be more efficient to utilize a small petty cash fund ($200.00) for these expenses. It is anticipated that petty cash would be used for 1) purchases relating to graduation of Drug Court participants 2) small expenditures that occur at the last moment (i.e. unanticipated) and 3) reimbursement to Drug Court employees for minor out-of-pocket expenses related to Drug Court.

55.               Appropriation transfer for Sheriff's Budget Unit 1100-221 through general fund contingencies in the amount of $215,033 (2000/2001) At midyear 2000/2001, the department reported the possibility of overdrafts in the Overtime line item Budget Unit 1100-221.At that point, we predicted the account could fall short as much as $200,000.The overdrafts at June 30, 2001 were actually $221,794 and included an unanticipated overdraft in the transportation account.A supplemental budget to reimburse for time spent working on the department's CAD/RMS project will clear $6762 of this overdraft.The transfer from line items in Budget Units 1100-243 and 1100-274 will clear an additional $134,465 and reduce the amount needed from General and Contingencies to $80,568.The 1100-221 budget absorbed almost $395,000 in buyouts for retiring employees during fiscal 2000/2001 and therefore had no salary savings to offset overtime costs.This transfer will close Budget Unit 1100-221 for Fiscal 2000/2001.
