Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager

Authorize the City Manager to sign a joint agreement with the City of Pittsburg to develop and prepare a Foreign-Trade Zone Application at a cost not to exceed $5,000. Funds to come from the City’s Economic Development Budget.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None

BACKGROUND
Earlier this year, the Delta Five Group of East County Cities plus the County agreed to join together to explore the idea of creating a Foreign-Trade Zone as a part of our areas joint economic development strategy.

Since the City of Pittsburg had begun this effort, it was agreed that they would serve as the lead agency to create a Request for Consultant to do this work and award an agreement. This work was completed at the October 2, 2000 City Council meeting with the selection of Mr. Chris Koelfgen as the consultant. His experience is extensive in doing the work required. Details of Mr. Koelfgen’s work is attached along with copies of related documents from the City of Pittsburg.

This effort is the first cooperative activity to come from the past couple of years of meetings among Delta Five, Mayors, Council Members and City Managers. Brentwood’s share of the initial $25,000 planning effort is $5,000, the same as each of the participating cities and the council.

A Phase II effort will not exceed $40,000. Brentwood’s share of this could total $8,000. Staff is not, at this time, requesting this activity. Staff will bring back updates in the progress of this important effort.
