Summary

Summary

The Trial Court Budget Advisory Committee’s Fiscal Planning Subcommittee recommends that the Judicial Council approve two requests from two trial courts for Trial Court Trust Fund (TCTF) funds to be held on behalf of the trial courts. Under the Judicial Council-adopted process, courts may request funding reduced as a result of a court’s exceeding the 1 percent fund balance cap, to be retained in the Trial Court Trust Fund for the benefit of that court. The total amount requested by the trial courts that would be reduced from their fiscal year (FY) 2016-2017 allocations for exceeding the cap is $267,559. The subcommittee is also informing the council on the final adjustments to the estimated approved amounts after FY 2015-2016 yearend. Based on year-end closing of courts’ financial records, the final amount of TCTF funds to be held on behalf of the courts for those requests that were approved in June and July 2016 has decreased from $8.2 million to $7.3 million.

Recommendation

Recommendation

Based on actions taken at its October 4, 2016, meeting, the Trial Court Budget Advisory Committee’s (TCBAC’s) Fiscal Planning Subcommittee recommends that the Judicial Council, effective October 28, 2016, allocate and designate $23,699 in Trial Court Trust Fund fund balance to the Superior Court of Mendocino County and $243,860 to the Superior Court of Napa County from funding to be reduced from the courts’ allocations in fiscal year 2016-2017 as a result of the courts’ exceeding the 1 percent fund balance cap because of contracts that exceeded their three-year term. The funds would be distributed to the courts in FY 2016-2017 (see Attachments B1 and B2).
