Dear Berkeley Township,
This is a request for public records made under OPRA and the common law right of access. I am not required to fill out an official form. Please acknowledge receipt of this message.
Records requested: I'm requesting the amount of funds transferred from the construction department to any other part of the budget including the general fund from 2012 to present?
I have Attached all Budget transfers for 2012 to the present. Transfers are done via Resolution ONLY as per the below Statutory reference
Statutory Rules for Budget Transfers:
A. APPROPRIATION TRANSFERS
1. During the last two (2) months of the current budget fiscal year, by a resolution adopted by a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the full membership. Funds are transferred from one line item to another. [N.J.S.A. 40A:4-58] 10/31/04
2. During the first three (3) months of a succeeding year, by a resolution adopted by a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the full membership. (Although the fiscal year has ended, some funds remain which are called "reserves." These appropriation reserves can be transferred from one line item to another within that budget through this process.) [N.J.S.A. 40A:4-59] 10/31/04
3. The exception to N.J.S.A. 40A:4-58 and N.J.S.A. 40A:4-59 is that no transfers may be made from an appropriation outside the CAP to an appropriation within the CAP. Also, no transfers shall be made among outside CAP appropriations except transfers may be made among debt service appropriations only. [N.J.S.A. 40A:4-38] 10/31/04
