Approve a Resolution authorizing the City Manager or his designee the
authority to execute all necessary documents for the purpose of securing
2003/04 through 2008/09 Used Oil Grant funds.
On February 12, 2002 Council approved Resolution No. 2454 authorizing the
City Manager or his designee to execute all necessary documents to secure
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 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 May 30, 2003 and submit a resolution of
approval to the execution of an agreement with the State of California. In
years past we have submitted a resolution each year with the application.
This year we are submitting a resolution that will cover not only the
2003/04 grant cycle application for $9,140, but will also cover our future
applications for the next four (4) grant cycles, whose grant amounts have
not yet been determined. 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.
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 Friday and Saturday from 9:00am-1:00pm. Cities and counties receive
annual block grants based on population. The City of Brentwood has
participated in previous cycles. Our current funding allocation is $9,140.
In the last several years, we have received funding in excess of $35,830.
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 through our rate
Should the City choose not 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 Solid Waste Enterprise Fund or NPDES funds.
