Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

On April 8, 2003, the Board created an Approval Authority to distribute Homeland Security Grant funds to local eligible entities.  This Approval Authority has approved the reimbursement of $21,103 to the City of Placerville from the Fiscal Year 2017 Homeland Security Grant for the update to purchase and install a perimeter security system.  The Approval Authority also approved the reimbursement of $8,000 to the City of South Lake Tahoe for the purchase of wildfire personal protective equipment.  The Approval Authority consists of representatives from the City of Placerville, and South Lake Tahoe Police Departments, the Sheriff’s Office, Public Health, and Fire Districts. 

 

On June 23, 2015, the Board of Supervisors reaffirmed the creation of an Approval Authority to distribute the Grant funds at the local level.

 

The Homeland Security Grant program provides funding for planning, equipment, training, exercises and management/administrative costs to help fulfill one of the core missions of the Federal Department of Homeland Security by enhancing the country's ability to prepare for, prevent, respond to and recover from potential attacks and other hazards. The Grant is one of the main mechanisms in funding the creation and maintenance of national preparedness, which refers to the establishment of plans, procedures, policies, training, and equipment at the Federal, State, and local level that is needed to maximize the ability to prevent, respond to, and recover from major events such as terrorist attacks, major disasters, and other emergencies.

 

The disbursement of funds to the both the City of Placerville and the City of South Lake Tahoe was voted and approved by the Approval Authority on April 17, 2020.

 

ALTERNATIVES

Failure to disburse funds would result in the inability of the Sheriff’s Office to administer the grant funds as approved by the State and the Approval Authority.
