Executive Summary

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

Recommendation to recognize carry-forward from accrued interest earned from the period July 1, 2019 through September 30, 2019 by EMS County Grant revenue and appropriate funds for a total amount of $864.26.

 

 

OBJECTIVE:  To appropriate accrued interest earned from July 1, 2019 - September 30, 2019 for EMS County Grants awarded by the Florida Department of Health under the Emergency Medical Services County Grant Programs.

 

CONSIDERATIONS:  Each year EMS is awarded a grant through the Florida Department of Health, Bureau of EMS.  The most recent grant was approved by the Board on September 24, 2019. This grant is non-competitive and requires only the completion of the application and a resolution stating that the grant funds will be used only to expand or improve EMS services and will not supplant budgeted funds.  The State allows for the rollover of any unexpended funds, including interest to the next year’s grant for County expenditure. Interest in EMS Grant Fund 493 has accrued to a balance of $824.26 through September 30, 2019.  Staff is seeking Board approval to recognize and appropriate this accrued interest in order to expend the funds.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:  A Budget Amendment is required to recognize a total of $864.26 within EMS Grant Fund 493, Project 33586 for accrued interest. 

 

LEGAL CONSIDERATIONS:   This item has been reviewed by the County Attorney, raises no legal issues, and requires majority vote for approval.  -JAK 

 

GROWTH MANAGEMENT IMPACT:  There is no Growth Management Impact associated with this action.

 

RECOMMENDATION: To approve the necessary Budget Amendment in the amount of $864.26 to appropriate carry-forward accrued interest through September 30, 2019.
