CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 12

Meeting Date: April 12, 2005

Subject/Title: Approve a Resolution amending the 2004-05 Operations Budget to include $210,000 for City Housing project-related expenses

Prepared by: Ellen Bonneville, Housing Manager

Submitted by: Howard Sword, Director of Community Development

RECOMMENDATION
Approve Resolution amending the 2004-05 Operations Budget to include $210,000 for City Housing project-related expenses.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On June 8, 2004, the City Council approved Resolution No. 2004-132 amending the 2004/05 budget and recommended budget adjustments.

On June 22, 2004 the City Council approved Resolution No. 2004-149 amending the 2004/05 Housing Division budget to include the affordable housing and housing enterprise fund recommended budget adjustments.

On December 14, 2004, the City Council approved and waived first reading of Ordinance 790 amending Chapter 17.725 of the Municipal Code amending the citywide affordable housing program.

On January 11, 2005 the City Council approved Resolution No. 2005-08 amending the 2004/05 operating budget and approving the recommended mid-year budget adjustments.

BACKGROUND
Currently there is no budget for project-related expenses in the Affordable Housing In-Lieu Fee fund included in the 2004/05 Final Budget for the City of Brentwood. Projects were implemented after the budget was adopted by the City Council and expenses incurred were paid from housing enterprise funds. This amendment to the housing budget of $210,000 will cover project expenses associated with the amendment to the Affordable Housing Ordinance and for consulting and legal expertise. In addition, the legal and consulting expenses for the proposed Davis Camp project and the Brentwood Senior Commons project by Eden Housing, Inc. are included in this $210,000 budget.

Staff anticipates additional invoices for these projects prior to the end of the fiscal year necessitating the request for $210,000 to cover these project costs from the Housing In-Lieu fee fund.

FISCAL IMPACT
The proposed $210,000 shall be funded from the Affordable Housing In-Lieu Fee Fund. The fees collected to date exceed $5,048,000. Of this amount, $900,000 has been appropriated for the Brentwood Senior Commons project.
