City should document any interfund loans…

Miller Canfield has suggested that the city should document any inter-fund loans, and have the loans approved by the city council.. You think, the council is the body that approves the funds, they are the people who hold the strings here in the city. The Attorney General said in 1951, No (Aug. 1, 1951) opinion said that Municipal officers have no right to divert money from one fund to another and different fund for which it was not appropriated, but it is not an unlawful diversion to temporarily borrow from one fund sufficient idle money for the benefit of another fund having a stated and sufficient income to repay the sum borrowed, as the former fund is not in such case depleted.

Funds cannot be permanently transferred from one fund to another without an appropriate budget amendment. A loan is permitted provided it is properly documented and approved as a loan by city council so as to distinguish it from an inappropriate transfer.
