Summary

Summary

The Judicial Branch Budget Committee recommends that the Judicial Council approve the Superior Court of Humboldt County’s application for emergency funding from the $10 Million State-Level Reserve. Under the current policy adopted by the Judicial Council, courts that are projecting a current-year negative fund balance may apply for either a loan or one-time funding for unavoidable shortfalls, unforeseen emergencies, or unanticipated expenses for existing programs.

Recommendation

Recommendation

Based on actions taken at its March 18, 2019, meeting, the Judicial Branch Budget Committee recommends that the Judicial Council, effective May 17, 2019:

 

1.    Approve the allocation and one-time distribution of $117,124 to the Superior Court of Humboldt County, contingent upon a plan from the court to house original records and backup records in different facilities. This funding will allow the court to digitize over 1,800 reels of film and preserve court records that would otherwise be destroyed.

 

2.    Waive the requirement that approved emergency funding be distributed as a cash advance loan. Current Judicial Council policy requires that emergency funding approved after April 1 be distributed as a cash advance.
