Re:              Transfer of Funds from DPW Buildings and Grounds OM account, Electricity Line to Law Department’s OM account, Judgments/Settlement of Claims


Dear Honorable Board Members:


              I respectfully request your approval to transfer $30,000.00 from the DPW Buildings and Grounds Ordinary Maintenance, Electricity Line (Org. 0140752, Account 521001) to the Law Department’s Ordinance Maintenance, Judgments/Settlement of Claims (Account Org. 0115152, Account 576000).


              The reason for this request is to settle a lawsuit brought by Commonwealth Tank to pay for services and equipment provided by their company on an emergency basis.  These services would normally be paid for by the Department of Public Works.




                                                                                    Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone
