Staff recommends approval of the Interlocal Agreement with Carver Heights/Montclair Area CRA (CH/MACRA) for management services provided.
The Carver Heights/Montclair Area Community Redevelopment Agency (CH/MACRA) currently employs one staff person as the Community Redevelopment Coordinator. All expenses are paid by the CH/MACRA. However, to best provide services and allocate resources equitably to the City of Leesburg Housing & Economic Development Department and the CH/MACRA, the Redevelopment Coordinator expenses should be contracted through an interlocal agreement to the CH/MACRA. Currently, the operating budget for the CH/MACRA is $101,470.00 which includes professional services, contract services, postage, utilities, property insurance, printing & binding, operating supplies and communication equipment.
The Redevelopment Coordinator will be required to keep records of the time spent providing services to the City and the CH/MACRA. All tasks provided on behalf of the CH/MACRA will be paid by that agency pursuant to the Interlocal Agreement. In addition, any budgeted and approved time performed for the City will be paid by general funds. The Redevelopment Coordinator task and responsibilities will not change pursuant to this Interlocal Agreement.
These services are included in the annual CH/MACRA budget of $101,740.
