Agenda Analysis

Analysis

 

This resolution appropriates the amount of $500,000 from the unencumbered appropriations of the following sources:

                     Metro Council - Regular Pay - $100,000

                     Mayor’s Office - Regular Pay - $100,000

                     Traffic Signal Maintenance Regular Pay -- $300,000

 

These appropriations will be transferred to a new “Family Planning Services” account to be available for a grant to Planned Parenthood of Tennessee and North Mississippi to provide comprehensive sexual health education in Nashville and Davidson County, distribution of safer sex supply kits, distribution of accurate information about abortion and reproductive health care, and services related to abortion navigation for individuals seeking abortion care in states outside of Tennessee. The new Family Planning Services account is being created by the Department of Finance for this purpose.

 

This resolution must be deferred to the October 4, 2022, meeting because Section 6.11 of the Metropolitan Charter only permits such appropriation transfers at the end of a fiscal quarter. Section 6.11 specifically authorizes the transfer of the unencumbered balance of an appropriation, by resolution of the Council, within the same section of the budget and within the same fund at the request of the mayor and at the end of any quarter of the fiscal year.
