Summary:

 

 

Under the City Charter, the City Council is authorized to structure its own budget.  This budget must be presented to the Mayor, for inclusion in the Executive Budget, after the Council approves it.

 

The Council's staff is described through divisions within three units of appropriation: Council Members and their aides, Committee Staffing, and Council Services.  These and the standing committees each have a U/A for PS.  OTPS is divided into the following categories: members, central staff, and each standing committee.   A separate resolution approving the central staff's lump sum unit of appropriation is attached for Council approval pursuant to Section 100 (c) of the Charter. 

 

Council Member office budgets are funded in U/A 001 object 021 (PS) and U/A 100 objects 400 and 414 (OTPS).  Funds allocated for each Member’s budget total $521,000.

 

Staff from the Office of the General Counsel, Governmental Affairs, Finance, Land Use, Infrastructure, and Human Services divisions are specifically assigned to each committee and subcommittee.  These analysts and attorneys in turn are supported by the Administrative Services Division, which functions as the central administration.
