    Default What percentage of your budget question

    The question on the app...

    What percentage of your annual budget goes to vehicle replacement?

    We are currently making payments on an engine that we had to buy to replace one the blew. do we use that in the percentage or is it asking what other money do we set aside?

    I am confident that they want to know if your are tyring to set aside funding for Capital purchases.

    They want to know if you have a plan to help yourself.

    Your repair expenses need to be accounted for somewhere else.

    Some departments have such limited income that they don't have any money left over for apparatus reserves after funding day to day operations.

    Will this question about how much the department allocates towards vehicle replacement hurt those limited income departments?

    I think as long as you address it somewhere in you narrative, along with not having a surplus in your budget that confirms your statement, that will probably be taken into consideration by the reviewers.

    Hey there are a lot of departments that go into the red. Some show their budget just covers expenses. I believe many reviewers understand that situation.

    On the other hand it doesn't hurt to show fifty dollars set aside for capital improvements. You can show that to your local town government too.
