WHEREAS, on December 19, 2014, the Board of Trustees of the Town of Meeker adopted the 2015 Budget; and WHEREAS, pursuant to the provisions of the Local Governmental Budget Law of Colorado, C.R.S. Section 29-1-101 et seq., and specifically C.R.S. Section 29-1-109, if after the adoption of the budget a municipality receives unanticipated revenues, has revenues that are lower than anticipated in the adopted budget, or deems it necessary to transfer appropriated moneys between funds, the governing body may adopt an ordinance in this regard; and WHEREAS, after adoption of the 2015 Budget, the Town received more revenues, incurred more expenditures or required different transfers than were originally anticipated.
NOW THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE TOWN OF MEEKER AS FOLLOWS: 1. That revenues and expenditures of the funds described herein of the Town of Meeker for 2015 are amended as follows and appropriated for the purposes stated: Because the amount of revenue budgeted for the Curtis Creek Infrastructure Project/DOLA grant was in excess of the actual amount received in 2015, an additional $300,573 is needed from the Water Fund Reserves to defray the revenue deficit. Therefore, a total of $593,039 is needed from the Water Fund Reserves to balance the 2015 Budget, and the total 2015 appropriation for the Water Fund is hereby restated from $1,714,966 to $1,363,570. 2. If any section, subsection, sentence, clause, phrase or portion of this Ordinance is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unconstitutional by the final decision of any court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this Ordinance.
This Ordinance shall take effect thirty days after its publication as provided in Section 31-16-105 C.R.S.
INTRODUCED, PASSED, APPROVED AND ADOPTED on November 17, 2015, by a vote of 5 for and 0 against, and ordered published in full in the Rio Blanco Herald Times.
