CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM
Meeting Date: January 9, 2001
Subject/Title: Authorization to Sign Contract
Submitted by: Jon Elam, City Manager
Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager
Motion to authorize the City Manager to sign a contract with Randall Funding & Development,
LLC at a rate of $2,000 per month and for a period not to exceed 24 months.
While the City of Brentwood has been very successful in securing a range of
funding assistance over the past year (per separate Council item) it has not
been able to compete very effectively for federal funds.
Recently Mr. Dan Randall from Randall, Funding & Development met with the
CIP Sub-Committee (December 22nd, 2000) to discuss his proposal to provide
assistance to the City.
Following this discussion the Sub-Committee asked staff to bring this request
forward with a request to support the hiring of the Randall firm.
The Randall firm basically serves as a Grant securing resource for many of
the Nation’s largest cities. They are a firm of people who specialize in various
areas of federal funding and thus all able to focus their clients (Cities)
efforts to help them increase their success at securing funds.
They would start by visiting Brentwood and do a Needs Assessment, this would
help narrow the range of funding options.
They would them draft up grant proposals (all would be subject to Council approval),
do the leg work and then submit them on the City’s behalf. Further details
are outlined in the attached material.
