Title
Environmental Management Department recommending the Board adopt a Resolution authorizing the Director of said Department to submit a Used Oil Payment Program Application for the Fiscal Year 2011/2012 to the State of California Natural Resources Agency, Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery.
FUNDING: California Oil Recycling Enhancement Act.
Resolution 092-2011
Body
 
Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost: Grant award is estimated at approximately $50,000. A County funding match is not required. Funds have been included in the Recommended FY 2011-12 budget.
 
Background:
The purpose of the Used Oil Payment Program grants is to provide opportunities for used oil recycling. The grant assists local governments with establishing, maintaining, and/or enhancing used oil and used oil filter collection/recycling programs. The programs allow for developing, purchasing and distributing educational and promotional materials informing the public about used oil and used oil filter collection and recycling.
 
The Used Oil Payment Program is non-competitive and provides payments/funds to establish and maintain used oil and used oil filter collection/recycling programs. The funding is calculated on a per capita basis using the Department of Finances population statistics, and El Dorado County typically is awarded $40,000.   The final funding amount will be determined upon approval of the State budget.
 
Reason for Recommendation: The Environmental Management Department is seeking authorization to apply for the FY 2011/2012 Used Oil Payment Program funding and will act as the lead agency on behalf of the City of Placerville and the City of South Lake Tahoe.
 
Action to be taken following Board approval: Upon execution by the Chair, the Board Clerks Office will forward the resolution to Environmental Management for submittal with the grant application.
