RESOLUTION TRANSFERRING WITH THE 2000 AND 2001 HUD COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT (CDBG) PROGRAM.

BY COUNCILOR GILBERT:

        RESOLVED, the city of Duluth established certain 2000 and 2001 CDBG accounts; and

        WHEREAS, the community development committee (CD committee) for the CDBG program passed a resolution recommending funding changes as set forth below.

        NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are authorized to make the following fund transfers in the Federal Program Fund 262-2000 and 2001 HUD-funded community development accounts as set forth below:
 
2000 CDBG transfers
Project # Project Budget amount New amount Amount of increase or decrease
6935 Contingency $63,000 $30,000 ($30,000)
2001 CDBG transfers
6440 West Duluth Park Improvements $0 $30,000 $30,000 



STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  The purpose of this resolution is to utilize the remaining funds being reprogrammed from the 1200 Fund. This action will reprogram funds from the Contingency Account #6335 in the FY 2000 program to the Morgan Park Sidewalk Safety Program #6440 in FY 2001. The CD committee is able to make this transfer because the project went through the 30 day public comment period during the public review of the action plan. The CD committee has held a public hearing in accordance with the citizen participation plan. The CD committee held a public hearing on July 31, 2001, and recommended approval of the budget transfer to this previously "zero" funded project.
