With the approval of the attached budget resolution and budget amendment, $98,500 will be available in various expense accounts in 0011-01703 Chinsegut Hill Facility Department.


On December 5, 2017, the Board entered into a Lease Agreement with The Friends of Chinsegut.  As part of the Lease Agreement, the County agreed to take over the repairs and maintenance cost of the facility, while The Friends continued with the day-to-day operational costs.  In order to maintain the facility, the following was agreed to:


·              Friends of Chinsegut would return the balance the 2017 funding ($48,500) to the County.


·              The County would retain the 2018 funding ($50,000) for the Chinsegut Hill Facility.


·              These funds would in turn be used for maintenance and repairs for Chinsegut Hill by the County.


The County received a check in the amount of $48,500 from The Friends of Chinsegut on January 23, 2018.  The attached budget resolution recognizes these funds into the General Fund - Chinsegut Hill Facility department.  In addition, the attached budget amendment is reallocating the 2018 funding of $50,000 Aid to Outside Organizations from the Board's budget to the Chinsegut Hill Facility's budget.  With the approval of the attached budget resolution and amendment, the total budget for maintenance and repairs is $98,500 to be used as needed.
