[HISTORY: Adopted by the City Council of the City of Scranton 9-26-1979 as Ch. 2, Art. IV, of the 1979 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
It is hereby ordained by Council that on receipt of reimbursing money paid into the City Treasury, the City Treasurer on notice from the Director of any city Department from whose appropriations such money has been expended, shall certify to the City Controller the sum of such reimbursing money. Upon approval by the City Controller of the accounting in such case, he shall add the amount of the reimbursing sum to the appropriation account originally involved, and it shall be subject to reexpenditure for the purposes of such appropriation.
The provisions of this chapter shall apply both to funds of the general city accounts and to special funds such as those which are the proceeds of bond issues, or other specially established funds; but as to general city budget accounts of any current year, no sum which shall be constituted of reimbursement of expenditure that was made out of closed appropriation accounts of a prior year shall be applicable as a reappropriation to the budget of the current year.
Nothing in this chapter shall be held to permit reappropriation of moneys received as earnings or rentals of city property or facilities; provided, however, that should the appropriation for the upkeep and improvement of Nay Aug Park in any year be an amount less than a sum sufficient to include all revenue derived from concessions granted by the city for the use of facilities of that portion of the park conveyed to the city by the Lackawanna Iron and Coal Company, then the excess of such revenue in any year over the amount of the appropriation shall be reappropriated to the upkeep of the park.
