DeSoto FY21----FY22-Approved-Budget

Use Of Funds Emergencies

Funds for emergencies will only be accessed when the result of emergency expenditures or an unexpected revenue reduction would likely result in a negative ending fund balance for the General Fund. The City Manager, after discussion with the Council, may access funds from the reserve after the General Fund’s contingency or reserve amount is exhausted. The emergency funds expended must begin to be restored in the fiscal year following their use. Restoration will be consistent with the practice of budgeting transfers to the Stabilization Fund totaling a minimum of $100,000 a year. Unanticipated Expenditures The Stabilization Fund is not at a level yet that allows the Council to use them to counteract one-time fluctuations in revenues and expenditures or meet large unexpected one-time expenditures. As the fund reaches the targeted funding level, the Stabilization Fund Policy will be revised to address how this will be accessed.
