There is hereby created and established a fund known as the “revenue stabilization fund.” (Ord. 2224 § 1, 1998)

3.53.020 Appropriation of monies.

Into the revenue stabilization fund shall be placed monies appropriated or budgeted from time-to-time, which are determined reasonable and necessary to accumulate a balance of at least $2,000,000, and that the funds be expended only for the purposes of revenue stabilization. Revenue stabilization includes:

B. Financial reserves to provide a cushion for an unexpected shortage in tax revenue receipts;

C. Reserves for expenditures deemed necessary by the city council;

D. Temporary short-term interfund loans made consistent with BARS Manual regulations. (Ord. 2224 § 2, 1998)

3.53.030 Monies accumulation.

The monies in the fund may be allowed to accumulate from year-to-year until the city council shall determine to expend the monies in the fund for the purposes specified; provided, that any expenditure that results in the fund decreasing below $1,500,000 shall only be approved by a resolution which states facts and findings for doing so. (Ord. 2224 § 3, 1998)

3.53.040 Interest earnings.

The interest earnings from said funds shall be paid into the general fund. (Ord. 2224 § 4, 1998)

3.53.900 Severability.
