Accept informational report from Brentwood Police Activities League – After
the Bell Program for fiscal year 2007/08.
On June 22, 2004 Brentwood Police Activities League updated City Council on
the collaboration with the City of Brentwood. City Council approved a
resolution for a finance plan for Brentwood Police Activities League on May
On May 23, 2006 an informational report was given to City Council on the
Brentwood Police Activities League – After the Bell after School program for
a change of sites in 2006/07.
The Brentwood Police Activities League began in August of 2003 with two
sites Edna Hill Middle School and Loma Vista Elementary School. In August of
2004 the site expanded to three sites Edna Hill Middle School, Bristow
Middle School and Loma Vista Elementary School. With the completion of the
third middle school, J. Douglas Adams Middle School the Brentwood Police
Activities League Board concurred that the PAL-After the Bell after school
program would better serve the Brentwood population if it was located at the
J. Douglas Adams Middle School instead of Loma Vista Elementary School.
With this new fiscal budget year 2007/08 it is the intent of the City to
continue the present agreement in which the PAL Board will contribute 50% of
the Part-time salary and benefits (approximately 14% of salaries) and the
City will “not exceed” $50,000 in the fiscal year as per the agreement. The
PAL Board is also expected to raise all money necessary for any other PAL
programs outside the After the Bell Program.
City staff and members of the PAL Board will return to the City Council
prior to March 1, 2008 with a proposed long term funding program and
agreement for continuation of the City/PAL collaboration.
No additional fiscal impact staying within the 2007/08 budget.
