Meeting Date:           October 11, 2010

 

From:                          Jay M. Evans, City Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing an Agreement for fiscal year 2010-11 Civic Grant funding with Leesburg Cemeteries, Inc.

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends execution of the agreement with Leesburg Cemeteries for $87,600.00 for fiscal year 2010-11 civic grant funding.

 

Analysis:

During the budget process, the Commission and staff determined that civic funding for the FY 10/11 budget would be offered only to those organizations that received funding in FY 09/10.  The funding amount was determined by reducing last year’s award by 10%.  The funding for Leesburg Cemeteries, Inc. was not reduced by 10% and remains the same as last year.  A letter was sent to each organization in May 2010 advising them of the funding amount offered with a request to either accept or decline the proposal. 

 

Options:

1.  Approve the funding for the Leesburg, Cemeteries, Inc., or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

A total of $87,600 ($80,000 plus utility credit of $7,600) is in fiscal year 2010-11 budget for this purpose.
