§ 1721. Amendment of budget
A. The board may amend the budget to make supplemental appropriations to any fund up to the amount of additional revenues which are available for current expenses as shown by a fund balance for the fund due to:
1. Revenues received from sources not anticipated in the budget for that year;
2. Revenues received from anticipated sources but in excess of the budget estimates therefor; or
3. Unexpended unencumbered cash balances on hand at the end of the preceding fiscal year which had not been anticipated in the budget. Any appropriation authorizing the creating of an indebtedness shall be governed by the applicable provisions of Article X of the Constitution of the State of Oklahoma.
B. If at any time during the budget year it appears probable that revenues available will be insufficient to meet the amount appropriated, or that due to unforeseen emergencies there is temporarily insufficient money in a particular fund to meet the requirements of appropriation for the fund, the board shall take action as it deems necessary. For that purpose, it may amend the budget to reduce one or more appropriations, but no appropriation for debt service may be reduced and no appropriation may be reduced by more than the amount of the unencumbered and unexpended balance thereof. No transfer shall be made from the debt service fund to any other fund except as may be permitted by the terms of the bond issue or applicable law.
C. A budget amendment as provided in this section authorizing supplemental appropriations or a decrease or change in appropriation or funds shall be adopted at a meeting of the board and filed with the district, the county excise board of each county in which the district is located and the State Auditor and Inspector.
