Chairman This is for the chumps. This is the property that. 00:23:39

appropriation for the year 2023. Morning, Jennifer. Good morning, Brad and Jennifer Ashley. Finance in front of you is the 00:26:43
emergency ordinance for the first budget supplemental of the year as a part of the budget statute for the state of Colorado. This 00:26:51
is one of the ways that we can make a change, make changes to our budget. 00:26:58
We weren't aware of when the budget was approved last December. And in looking through the exhibits that you have, the biggest 00:27:05
part of this especially for the first supplemental of the year is the encumbrance rule that is done every year for for purchases 00:27:13
that started in the previous year. And quite frankly a lot of our purchases especially for the capital projects are had started in 00:27:20
2021 just showing the delay of projects getting done because of the supply chain shortages that we still seem to be experiencing. 00:27:28
Right now and then but then we also have some in the general fund and they are all listed out. I'm happy to go through in more 00:27:36
detail. However, the biggest thing in the general fund is the collaborative and the work day implementation. We did a supplemental 00:27:43
to put this in the 2022 budget and then we ended up having to spend most of our money in 2023. So part of it was in the income 00:27:51
rents roll and the rest of it is here. But for 2024, we do have those expenses covered in our normal budget process. 00:27:58

Chairman This is for the chumps. This is the property that. 00:23:39
The board had discussed about two years ago. 00:23:44
Based upon sort of the way this. 00:23:47
Went down. The board was considering making offers. 00:23:50
Either for buying the property that was necessary to get the job done moving the roadway. 00:23:55
Or the entire property. 00:24:01
After discussion with the Champs, the decision was made to justify the property. 00:24:04
They were gracious enough to go ahead and. 00:24:09
Get us started. We took possession, we got all the work done. 00:24:12
Cleared it out, there was about $22,000 worth of. 00:24:17
Um, sort of punch list items? 00:24:21

appropriation for the year 2023. Morning, Jennifer. Good morning, Brad and Jennifer Ashley. Finance in front of you is the 00:26:43
emergency ordinance for the first budget supplemental of the year as a part of the budget statute for the state of Colorado. This 00:26:51
is one of the ways that we can make a change, make changes to our budget. 00:26:58
We weren't aware of when the budget was approved last December. And in looking through the exhibits that you have, the biggest 00:27:05
part of this especially for the first supplemental of the year is the encumbrance rule that is done every year for for purchases 00:27:13
that started in the previous year. And quite frankly a lot of our purchases especially for the capital projects are had started in 00:27:20
2021 just showing the delay of projects getting done because of the supply chain shortages that we still seem to be experiencing. 00:27:28
Right now and then but then we also have some in the general fund and they are all listed out. I'm happy to go through in more 00:27:36
detail. However, the biggest thing in the general fund is the collaborative and the work day implementation. We did a supplemental 00:27:43
to put this in the 2022 budget and then we ended up having to spend most of our money in 2023. So part of it was in the income 00:27:51
rents roll and the rest of it is here. But for 2024, we do have those expenses covered in our normal budget process. 00:27:58
We also do have things like the the SRO program, we have put money in for the wages in that new org and and then purchasing of 00:28:06
vehicles those are some of the biggest ones. And then you'll also see under Exhibit E, we do have some of the small business tax 00:28:14
credits that come from the the property tax credit that we have available to us in the general fund, so that those dollars go to 00:28:21
the economic Development Fund. But other than that I'm happy to answer any questions that you have. 00:28:28
