Body

DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION

Community Development Agency, Environmental Management Division (CDA/EMD), recommending the Board adopt Resolution 076-2015 to:

1) Accept a grant award in an amount up to $26,000 from the State of California, Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle), Tire Enforcement Grant Program FY 14/15 (TEA 22), under the Public Resources Code sections 40000 et seq. in furtherance of the State of California's efforts to reduce, recycle and reuse solid waste generated in the State; and

2) Delegate authority to the Community Development Agency Director, or designee, to execute all grant documents, including, but not limited to, the grant funding agreement, amendments, requests for payment, reports, and all associated documents necessary to secure grant funds and implement the approved grant project.

 

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

CalRecycle administers various grant programs in furtherance of the State of California's effort to reduce, recycle and reuse solid waste and hazardous material generated in the State thereby preserving landfill capacity and protecting public health and safety and the environment.  TEA 22 enables several eligible costs such as conducting and reporting on inspections of waste tire facilities to ensure compliance with current waste tire laws and regulations; investigation of illegal tire disposal activities; identification and issuing notices of violation to non-compliant entities; conducting and reporting surveillance, investigations and other enforcement activities to remediate waste tire disposal and hauling; referring all illegal and unregistered illegal-waste/used tire haulers to CalRecycle; and conducting program related outreach and educational efforts with local businesses.

 

The Grant award amount is based upon population. The population calculation for counties include the applicant's County and the population of all incorporated cities within the boundaries of the County.

 

CDA/EMD submitted an application for Grant funds in the amount of $31,336 (Attachment A).  The exact Grant award was determined by CalRecycle after all applications had been reviewed.  CDA/EMD received notification that CalRecycle had approved funding on April 17, 2015 in the amount of $26,000.  CDA/EMD has also received the Grant Agreement cover sheet, terms and conditions, and procedures and requirements, and must return the executed Grant Agreement within sixty (60) days. 

 

In accordance with BOS Policy A-6, the Board of Supervisors is the sole authority for accepting grant awards and approving grant agreements.  After acceptance of a grant award and approval of the grant agreement, the Board may delegate authority to execute the grant agreement and other grant related documents.  The attached Resolution (Attachment B) allows the Community Development Agency Director or designee signature authority for all grant documents, including, but not limited to, the grant funding agreement, amendments, requests for payment, reports, and all associated documents necessary to secure grant funds and implement the approved grant project.
