A budget amendment is required to move a portion of the All Traffic Solutions Radar Speed Trailer project from the general fund into the capital fund as it meets the City policy for a capital purchase. The expenditure and revenue will be decreased for the equipment purchase in general fund and increased in the capital fund Police department applicable accounts. The Minot Police Department (MPD) and Ward County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) were awarded the 2019 JAG Grant through the Department of Justice and a memorandum of understanding was signed splitting the funds equally between the agencies. MPD projected to use their funds to purchase a radar speed trailer with message display board.
Recommend approval of the proposed ordinance for the radar speed trailer purchase to be moved from general fund to capital equipment fund on first reading.
