Attached is revised language that more clearly states the intent of the budget rider related to the Joint Powers Agreement and anti-displacement strategies.

(Apologies for multiple posts above. The post was not reflected on the thread's primary page and I was unaware that the Message Board automatically created a second page. I assumed that the posts were not going through due to a technical error. Apologies for the extra scrolling. As an FYI, all of Council Member Tovo's updated amendments above, as well as the below budget rider, are also posted in CM Tovo's separate thread).

Colleagues,
I am re-posting my amendments and riders below. Note that Amendment 2 contains revised figures provided by the budget office as a part of question #209. I have also noted in red-line format where there are changes in the amendment narrative.

Additionally, as mentioned earlier in today’s meeting, I am posting one additional rider that seeks to give the City Manager the discretion to choose vendors that best meet the intent of budget amendments.

Colleagues,

Below please find an additional amendment and a budget rider that I would like to offer as part of our budget deliberations.

ALTER 5: Adding $1 million to the Austin Arts and Culture Nonprofit Relief Grant fund.
Link: http://assets.austintexas.gov/austincou ... 170010.pdf

ALTER Rider 3: Direction to the City Manager to highlight investments related to greenhouse gases.
Link: http://assets.austintexas.gov/austincou ... 165719.pdf

Additionally, CM Fuentes, I would like to join you as a cosponsor on your digital equity budget rider. Over the past few years I have worked extensively with community groups and city staff on mechanisms to address the digital divide and increase access to broadband citywide. I look forward to working with you on these important items.

Colleagues

I'm posting this revised version (to be clearer) of my budget rider related to staffing costs for anti-displacement under the JPA and Project Connect. I have added language to clearly state that this would have to be aligned legally with the Contract with the Voters, when language comes back to us for consideration as part of the proposed JPA in October.

http://assets.austintexas.gov/austincou ... 165107.pdf

By way of explanation - This is a policy statement recognizing the importance of preserving funding directly for the benefit of people in our community at risk of displacement; recognizing that addressing equity and anti-displacement is central to mobility and the intent of Project Connect to benefit all people in our community; and providing Council the opportunity to consider options that legally align with the Contract with the Voters

On behalf of CM Pool, I am posting an revised budget amendment form with the $900,000 for Child Care at PARD recreation centers as one-time rather than ongoing as this funds temporary and part time employees for after school and summer time child care, and is scalable with the increasing need this school year and next summer. We are also suggesting that the one-time $900,000 could be one-time general fund revenue, or ARPA. The vehicle purchases remain the same as contractual obligation (KOs) in the amount of $300,000.

Colleagues,

Below is a link to a spreadsheet that includes: (1) all budget amendments; (2) all budget riders; and (3) my proposal at a 4.9% above no-new-revenue, which incorporates all of the Council investment priorities with only small modifications and still reduces taxes for the typical homeowner beyond the Manager’s original projection and still leaves funding available for new priorities or for the reserves.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

• The cells highlighted in yellow are new amendments or updated figures that were provided after the compiled document sent by staff on Tuesday night, except it does not include the latest version of Pool-1 that was posted last night.
• The text in red are corrections provided to me by staff last night.
• Each amendment/rider is hyperlinked with the latest version provided on the message board, except for Pool-1.

Council Member Casar, I want to thank you and Stephanie Trinh for all of your work on the spreadsheet and for highlighting the Metz canopy in your proposal. I would also like to thank Council Member Ellis and others who have expressed support for this item as well.

Rodolfo "Rudy" Mendez Recreation Center (formally Metz Recreation Center) is located in East Austin offers a variety of programs for community members of all ages throughout the year. This canopy would provide some much-needed shade at the splash pad, further enhancing its use and would particularly benefit children and families. I have attached an amendment for the Rudy Mendez Recreation Center canopy here: http://assets.austintexas.gov/austincou ... 154659.pdf
