Meeting Date: February 12, 2002
Subject/Title: Approve a resolution authorizing the City Manager or his designee to execute all necessary documents for the purposes of securing 2002/03 Used Oil Grant funds.
Submitted by: Paul Zolfarelli, Public Works Director and Jon Carlson, Solid Waste Manager
Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager
Approve a resolution authorizing the City Manager or his designee to execute all necessary applications, contracts, payment requests, agreements and amendments hereto for the purposes of securing 2002/03 Used Oil Grant funds in the amount of $11,530 and to implement and carry out the purposes specified in the grant application.
The current Used Oil Block Grant program has been a source of funding for the City’s participation in the regional Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) free drop-off program operated at the Delta Diablo Sanitation District (DDSD) every Saturday from 9am-1pm. Cities and counties receive annual block grants based on population. The City of Brentwood has participated in previous cycles. Our current annual funding allocation is $11,530. In the last several years, we have received funding in excess of $24,300. This grant funding is earmarked for only the used oil recycling portions of our expenditures, not for the paint, batteries, pesticides, etc. The Solid Waste Enterprise funds those non-used oil expenses.
The people of the State of California have enacted the California Oil Recycling Enhancement Act that provides funds to cities and counties for establishing and maintaining local used oil collection programs that encourage recycling or appropriate disposal of used oil. The California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB) offers grants to local governments to implement local used oil collection programs.
In order to take advantage of this Block Grant funding, we are required to file an annual application prior to March 28, 2002 and submit a resolution of approval to the execution of an agreement with the State of California. The resolution is attached and presented to the City Council for approval. If approved, staff will submit the resolution and follow through with an executed Agreement in order to secure these funds.
Should the City choose not to apply for the Grant and maintain its current level of participation in the regional hazardous waste drop-off program, the fiscal impact would be at least $5,000/year to cover direct operational costs and upwards to $5,000/year for non-operational expenses such as public education, used oil containers, etc. Alternate funding sources might include the SW Enterprise Fund or NPDES funds.
