                     WHEREAS, the proviso stated the due date of this report as June 1, 2020, but is being transmitted August 1, 2020, under Motion 15620;

                     NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT MOVED by the Council of King County:                     The council hereby acknowledges receipt of the report required under the 2019-2020 Biennial Budget Ordinance, Ordinance 18835, Section 109, as amended by Ordinance 19021, Section 64, Proviso 10, which is Attachment A to this motion.
