CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 12

Meeting Date: June 8, 2004

Subject/Title: Approve a Resolution authorizing the Finance Director to transfer $14,000
from the Economic Development Department Budget to the Brentwood
Chamber of Commerce for first year seed money for a Brentwood Farmer’s
Market

Prepared by: Howard Sword, Economic Development Director

Submitted by: Howard Sword, Economic Development Director

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a Resolution authorizing the Finance Director to transfer $14,000 from the Economic Development Department Budget to the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce for first year seed money for a Brentwood Farmers’ Market.

PREVIOUS ACTION
The City Council on May 25, 2004 authorized the Finance Director to transfer $14,000 from the Economic Development Department Budget to the Brentwood Agricultural Land Trust for first year seed money for a Brentwood Farmers’ Market.

BACKGROUND
It was originally intended that Brentwood Agricultural Land Trust (BALT) would administer the Farmers’ Market contract. However, since it has come to light that several members of BALT’s Board of Directors will participate as vendors in the Market there is an inherent conflict of interest for BALT to administer the contract with Pacific Coast Farmers Market Association.

The Brentwood Chamber of Commerce was contacted with regard to this situation and they have generously agreed to be the organization that holds and administers the contract with Pacific Coast Farmers Market Association. Therefore the seed money for the project will be transferred to the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce instead of BALT.

FISCAL IMPACT
The funding will come from the Economic Development Department Budget account 100-1204-70140, Special Services.

RESOLUTION NO.

WHEREAS, the $14,000 seed money from Economic Development Department for the Brentwood Farmers Market project will be transferred to the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce instead of BALT.
