BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the purchase of a replacement backhoe is authorized to be made in accordance with county purchasing policies, contingent upon the Parks Board identifying the necessary funds from within the 2004 Parks Department Budget.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the funds identified to pay for the backhoe are authorized to be re-appropriated into 2005 if necessary.
