A Resolution to Allocate Economic Opportunity Funds

Topic Description:

In FY 2001, the Board of Supervisors appropriated $250,000 into the Capital Fund as an Economic Development Fund.  The intended purpose of the fund was to support economic development in the County.  As presently constituted, expenditure of monies from the Fund requires a majority vote of the Board of Supervisors.  To provide greater flexibility and a more diversified use of these funds, the attached resolution would divide the $250,000 between the five magisterial districts. Each Supervisor would determine the best  use of $50,000 for economic development within his/her district. The resolution would also allow the Supervisors to move funds between districts on agreement of the Supervisors affected.  Expenditure of these funds would remain within the limits imposed for the use of public funds and procurement policies. 

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:
