Subject/Title: Approve resolution authorizing the City of Brentwood to accept monies from the Department of California Highway Patrol for the Highway 4 Safety Corridor Grant
Submitted by: James Martinez, Lieutenant
Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager
Approve Resolution authorizing the City of Brentwood to accept $15,000 from the Department of California Highway Patrol, Highway 4 Safety Corridor Grant, in order to fund overtime for frontline law enforcement to reduce collisions on Highway 4 in Contra Costa County.
In 1992, the California Highway Patrol began receiving grant funding to conduct corridor safety projects. The basic idea of a corridor project is to look at a high collision roadway, rather than just a high collision location, and identify and implement strategies that will affect safety on the entire corridor. To accomplish this for the Highway 4 project, a task force has been established by the California Highway Patrol to identify and address ways to reduce collisions on Highway 4 in Contra Costa County.
The Brentwood Police Department will be a participating member of the Highway 4 Safety Corridor Task Force and will be focusing on reducing collisions occurring on Highway 4 in the City of Brentwood. Grant funds totaling $15,000 will be provided to the City of Brentwood from the Department of California Highway Patrol to pay overtime for frontline law enforcement on the Highway 4 safety corridor that traverses through the City of Brentwood.
A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF BRENTWOOD AUTHORIZING THE ACCEPTANCE OF $15,000 FROM THE STATE CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A MULTI-AGENCY TRAFFIC SAFETY/ENFORCEMENT GRANT.
WHEREAS, the California Highway Patrol has received grant funds for the creation of a multi-agency Highway 4 Safety Task Force; and
WHEREAS, portions of Highway 4 in Contra Costa County have been identified as the corridor for which a Safety Action Plan is to be developed; and
WHEREAS, the grant allows funds for law enforcement; and
WHEREAS, the law enforcement is an important element in improving traffic safety on the corridor;
NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of the City of Brentwood authorizes participation in, and acceptance and expenditure of the aforementioned grant, and further authorizes Lieutenant James Martinez to sign the participation agreement.
