ADOPTED - DECEMBER 14, 2010
Agenda Item No. 16
Introduced by the County Services and Finance Committees of the:
INGHAM COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
RESOLUTION TO AUTHORIZE IMPREST FUNDS FOR THE
JAIL’S NEW INMATE TRUST ACCOUNT SYSTEM
WHEREAS, the Ingham County Board of Commissioners previously contracted with a vendor to provide Jail Inmate Trust Account Services through a Kiosk system; and
WHEREAS, the Kiosk system may occasionally pay funds out on checks that may not have completed the “float” or “hold” systems commonly employed by many financial institutions, therefore causing an overdraft or other service fee to be assessed against the County or causing the Inmate Pay System to otherwise not perform as designed; and
WHEREAS, the County desires to avoid unnecessary bank fees; and
WHEREAS, $20,000 has been determined to be an appropriate amount of imprest funds to prevent unwanted bank fees.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Ingham County Board of Commissioners authorizes the Ingham County Treasurer to transfer $20,000 from the general fund to an imprest funds account to service the Jail’s Inmate Trust Account Kiosk system.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the County Treasurer may, in his judgement, reduce the amount of imprest funds in the Kiosk account, if experience of the Kiosk program indicates that the amount of imprest funds is too high.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Ingham County Board Chairperson is authorized to sign any contract documents consistent with this resolution after approval as to form by the County Attorney.
