CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 2

Meeting Date: February 13, 2007

Subject/Title: Approve request for Park and Recreation Commissioner Ernie Rodrigues to attend the California Parks and Recreation Society (CPRS) Annual Conference

Prepared by: Ken De Silva, Landscape/Facilities Manager

Submitted by: Craig D. Bronzan, Director of Parks and Recreation

RECOMMENDATION
Approve by motion a request for Park and Recreation Commissioner Ernie Rodrigues to attend the California Parks and Recreation Society (CPRS) Annual Conference in Sacramento from March 7-10, 2007.

PREVIOUS ACTION
City Council approved the 2005/2006 – 2006/07 Operation Line Item Budget at the regular City Council meeting of June 14, 2005. In this budget, monies were budgeted for Park and Recreation Commissioners to attend trainings and conferences which includes the California Parks and Recreation Society Annual Conference.

BACKGROUND
Council/Administrative Policy 20-4, “Travel / Expense Policy” Section 4.1 states that “Overnight travel by Councilmembers and Commissioners, except League of Cities, shall be pre-approved by having the item placed on the City Council Consent Calendar”. In each of the past four years, members of the Park and Recreation Commission have attended the CPRS Conference, accompanied by Parks and Recreation Department staff.

The CPRS Annual Conference provides state training where Commissioners and staff have the opportunity to learn about the latest trends, policies, customer services programs, and training requirements that are necessary for parks and recreation agencies.

This year, our past Chairperson, Ernie Rodrigues, will be installed as the California Association of Park and Recreation Commissioners and Board Member President.

FISCAL IMPACT
Costs for this conference are included in the City Council adopted 2005/06 – 2006/07 budget. Registration fees, lodging, and per diem expenses of approximately $1,100 will be charged to the Park and Recreation Commission budget account.
