Analysis: 

 

This grant will pay the cost for investigative department equipment for law enforcement purposes.  These funds will help supplement our current department equipment budget by providing much needed resources and equipment.   The grant funds will pay for the replacement of outdated equipment or provide funding for equipment the department needs but lacks the funding.  By agreeing, the city assumes no additional liability or additional costs.

 

Deadline for application is June 16th.

 

 

 

Options:

1.      Approve the resolution authorizing the application and acceptance of a federal grant of $27,388.00; or

2.      Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

Fiscal Impact: 

There is no matching requirement.  If this grant is awarded, there will be a positive effect on General Fund revenues. A budget adjustment will be processed to increase the Police Department budget and recognize the increased revenue.
