CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 10

Meeting Date: December 12, 2000

Subject/Title: Code Enforcement Grant Application

Submitted by: Community Development: Mitch Oshinsky and Louis R. Kidwell

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager


RECOMMENDATION
Authorize the City Manager to execute in the name of the City of Brentwood, an application, agreement and other instruments necessary to apply for a Code Enforcement Grant.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None

BACKGROUND
On September 24, the Governor of the State of California signed into law Assembly Bill1383. This legislation established The Code Enforcement Incentive Program (CEIP), a three-year grant program for community code enforcement. 

The aim of this program is to make funds available as a matching grant to cities to increase staffing dedicated to local code enforcement. The City presently has one Code Enforcement Officer and clerical support. Salaries and overhead for present staff constitute matching funds required for this program. There will be no budgetary increases necessary for this program. 

With the present staffing level, the majority of the time is spent on reacting to complaints from the public. If the City is successful in securing grant funding through this program, we will hire an additional Code Enforcement Officer and secure additional clerical support. The additional staffing will allow the City to vigorously move our predominately reactive code enforcement program into a more proactive one. 

The requested grant amount for the three-year program is approximately $150,000. Because of the grant nature of this position the City would enter into an employment agreement with the potential employee for the period of the grant term. Separate Council action would occur prior to making this a permanent City position.

WHEREAS, the City wishes to obtain from the State a grant for assisting with code enforcement activities and intends to offer matching funds and resources as identified in its application.
