DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION

Community Development Agency (CDA), Environmental Management Division (EMD), recommending the Board consider the following:  1) accept a grant award in the amount of $57,856 from the State of California, Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) for Tire Enforcement Grant Program Fiscal Year 2015-16 (TEA 23); and 2) Authorize the CDA Director, or designee, to execute all grant related documents including, but not limited to, the grant funding agreement, amendments, reports, request for payments and all associated documents necessary to secure and expend grant funds as designated under the agreement for the term of June 30, 2016, to September 30, 2017.

 

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

CalRecycle administers various grant payment 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 23 provides reimbursement for 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.

 

On January 28, 2016, EMD submitted an application to CalRecycle for TEA 23 grant funds in the amount of $57,856.  On April 20, 2016, CalRecycle notified EMD of the grant award for the amount requested, $57,856.  The grant agreement (Attachment B) must be fully executed and returned to CalRecycle within sixty (60) days of the notice of award.

 

In accordance with Board 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.
