20-0522 114.1COVID-19 EXPENDITURESCC- ReportREPORT - FISCAL YEAR-END APPROPRIATION FOR COVID-19 AND PG&E PSPS RELATED EXPENDITURES BACKGROUND: When emergencies occur, especially those requiring a declaration of local emergency, staff will open certain unique project accounts against which departments charge expenditures related to the emergency. These project accounts do not have appropriations to offset the expenditures, creating a negative balance, and negative balances must be corrected during the fiscal year-end process. Based on the City’s experiences with the Tubbs Fire, staff uses unique project accounts to pay for emergency expenditures.

General tax measures require approval by a simple majority of voters, and may be used for any service provided by the City through its General Fund. Special taxes require a two-thirds majority approval from the voters, and may only be used for specified purposes. The revenue generated by special taxes go to Special Revenue Funds and are completely separate from the General Fund. Here are the three tax measures approved by voters that are currently in place: • In 2004, voters approved a special public safety tax to pay for additional Police, Fire, and Violence Prevention (Gang Prevention) services. This tax is scheduled to end in 2025. • In 2010, during the Great Recession, voters approved a general tax to maintain City services in light of extensive budget reductions. This tax was extended in 2016, and will now expire in 2027. • After the 2017 T   Not available Not available
