Statement of Legislative and Financial Impact:

I. Nature of Request:

RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE COUNTY EXECUTIVE TO SIGN A GRANT AGREEMENT-SAM, STATE AND MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PROGRAM (EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT)


II. Justification:

This grant money was provided to the Emergency Management Office after application in hopes of completing the installation of emergency generators at all of our emergency shelter locations throughout the County.

Once this is complete we will have emergency power at every location used in Montgomery County as a shelter and it will create a much better situation for our constituents during large scale emergencies or disasters. 


III. Legislative Impact:

Pursuant to Article 3 of the Charter the Montgomery County Executive has the authority to sign contracts.


IV. Financial Impact:

There is no financial impact for this resolution.  This is a $360,000.00 gift with no match funds required.  OESJ has also agreed to supplement this grant with $53,100.00 to complete all stages and they have agreed to take control of all maintenance and upkeep moving forward. 

A resolution was adopted by the OESJ School Board and made part of the official record indicating these items.

We do not know exactly when this project wil commence so the County Treasurer suggested we leave any budget transfers out of this resolution and wait until we recieve the signed agreement back and we are ready to proceed.  At that time we will do another resolution requesting to realize the revenue and place the money in a specific line for purchase.
