The council will consider no fewer than 12 separate interim budget changes on Tuesday, including:
-$12,000 for a pump and well study in anticipation of a green-up project for the partially developed Boise Hills Park, which is slated for a $75,000 green-up in FY 2016.
-$15,000 for an appropriation increase to the Idaho Humane Society, attached to the city's prior purchase of 160 acres of undeveloped Foothills land from IHS.
-$66,500 for additional funds to the Downtown Circulator Analysis project, which is expected to be completed this November.
-$12,600 to extend the city's geothermal line to the JUMP/Simplot headquarters construction site (total geothermal construction costs will be nearly $450,000, which Simplot is expected to pay in exchange for an equal credit of geothermal service).
-$125,000 for sewer line repairs in connection with the addition of approximately 200 miles of sewer pipeline for the merger of the Bench and Northwest sewer districts.
-$4 million to the Solid Waste Fund for remediation at the under-construction Esther Simplot Park where, several weeks ago, industrial contamination was discovered requiring special disposal. The Solid Waste Fund is expected to repay $2.5 million to the General Fund in $500,000 increments over five years.
