a. Appropriation Ordinance: Adding $10,000.00 to various utility budgets for the purchase of additional meters for the meter replacement project. The emergency measure is because this equipment is needed to finish the project. This will come from 511, 521, 573, 574 carryovers.
b. Appropriation Ordinance: Adding $29,406.14 to the EMS Equipment budget. This represents the BWC portion of the Power Cot grant. The Village received the BWC portion in late February and this appropriation is in the same amount. The emergency measure is so we can order the equipment and install the machinery as soon as possible.
