Passage of a resolution authorizing the submittal of a grant proposal to the California Integrated Waste Management Board for the Waste Tire Playground Cover Grant Program and authorizing the City Manager to execute and submit all documents which may be necessary for the completion of the project.
The California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB) receives an annual appropriation from the California Tire Recycling Management Fund to administer the Tire Recycling Act (Statutes of 1989, Chapter 974). As part of the Act, CIWMB is offering the Waste Tire Playground Cover Grant Program to encourage the reduction of landfill disposal and stockpiling of California waste tires. Section 42889(g) of the Public Resources Code requires the CIWMB to assist in developing markets for waste tires. Further Public Resources Code 42872(a) allows for the awarding of grants to public entities involved in activities and applications that result in reduced landfill disposal or stockpiling of waste tires.
CIWMB will award the grants on a competitive basis for projects to refurbish surfacing at existing public playgrounds or provide surfacing for new public playgrounds including surfacing material that is placed underneath and around playground equipment. The project must use tire rubber produced from California waste tires. Only one application per jurisdiction will be accepted; the maximum grant award allowed is $25,000 with an even match required. The match may be public funds, private funds and/or in-kind contributions.
The Parks and Recreation Department recommends that the grant, if awarded, be used to refurbish City Park.
If awarded a grant through this program for playground surfacing, the City will be required to provide equal matching funds. Proposition 12 Per Capita funds allocated to the City may be used as the required match for this program so there would be no fiscal impact and no increased maintenance costs would be incurred as a result of the project.
