Budget Amendment Requirement for Additional $200,000 in Animal Shelter Improvements

Mayor Brenda Gunter expressed frustration during Finance Director Tina Deirshke's presentation on proposed budget amendments.  City documents set expectations for such amendments, a clear explanation with sufficient detail.

The information in the background packet and slide show seemed sparse.

Tina referenced comments made by Animal Shelter Director Morgan Chegwidden from earlier in the meeting.  Morgan is the former Budget Director for the City of San Angelo.  I do not believe Morgan would have advanced the item in the Capital Improvement Planning process with such little information.  Yet, staff did that to City Council on May 21st.  The Mayor is right to be frustrated.
