The maximum number of additional FTEs for parks and recreation shall be:                     19

                     SECTION 2.  Ordinance 18835, Section 126, as amended, is hereby amended as follows:

                     From the several capital improvement project funds there are hereby appropriated and authorized to be disbursed the following amounts for the specific projects identified in Attachment A to this ordinance (Proposed Ordinance 2019-0381).

Fund                     Fund Name                     2019-2020

3581                     PARKS CAPITAL                     $54,456,000

                     SECTION 3.  Attachment A to this ordinance hereby amends Attachment A to Ordinance 18835, as amended, by adding thereto and inserting therein the projects listed in Attachment A to this ordinance.

                     NEW SECTION. SECTION 4.  There is hereby added to the Ordinance 18835 a new section to read as follows:

                     PARKS RECREATION TRAILS AND OPEN SPACE LEVY - From the parks, recreation, trails and open space levy fund there is hereby appropriated to:

                     Parks recreation trails and open space levy                     $114,704,000

                     P1 PROVIDED THAT:

                     Of this appropriation, $250,000 shall not be expended or encumbered until the executive transmits a parks levy funding report to the council and a motion that  acknowledges receipt of the report and references the subject matter, the proviso's ordinance, ordinance section and proviso number in both the title and body of the motion, and a motion acknowledging receipt of the report is passed by the council.

                     The report shall evaluate options for reducing expenditures in the 2020-2025 parks levy proceeds because the August 2019 office of economic and financial analysis forecast shows that parks levy collections are likely to be three percent lower than originally anticipated when the council adopted Ordinance 18890 and passed Motion 15378, and include, but not be limited to:

                     A.  A summary of expenditures by eligible expenditure category through the end of 2020 with information on which projects and programs received a funding reduction from what was anticipated before the August 2019 office of economic and financial analysis forecast; and

                     B.  Recommendations for expenditures for projects and programs, including those identified in Motion 15378, over the life of the levy reflecting a three-percent reduction in total anticipated collections.  The expenditure recommendations shall prioritize fully funding projects identified in Attachment C to Motion 15378 that have external partners as the lead agency, including cities, towns, and school districts.  The expenditure recommendations shall also include providing levy proceeds to the Seattle Aquarium in the amount of $8,000,000 in the first four years of the levy.

                     The executive should file the report and a motion required by this proviso by June 30, 2020, in the form of a paper original and an electronic copy with the clerk of the council, who shall retain the original and provide an electronic copy to all

councilmembers, the council chief of staff and the lead staff for the budget and fiscal management committee, or its successor.
