Review and approve SLESF spending plan for Fiscal Year 2019-2020
This is a yearly report to the Council on the Department's Plan to spend the $100,000 derived from the State Law Enforcement Supplemental Fund.
Every year, Cities receive direct grant money from the State to supplement law enforcement funding as a result of public safety realignment. The City of Coalinga will receive $100,000.00 this year. In previous years the City has used this money to buy and replace equipment needed by the Police Department. This year is no different. Due to the current budgetary climate the Department plans to use its state grant money to do the following:
1. Pay year 4 of a five year lease for the 6 patrol vehicles purchased from McPeak Dodge in FY 16/17 using this same funding source $50,799.00
2. Purchase TIMS through Sunridge Systems, which is a training, budgetary and equipment tracking program for $5,910.00.
3. 9 Kenwood NX5000 P25 dual band car radios. The purchase of the new 9 radios would replace old radios that are in the patrol vehicles and that are not P25 compliant. The current 9 radios were installed early 2000. The cost for the 9 radios is $25, 613.73.
The remaining $23,587.27 will be saved for possible use on overtime if needed.
Do not approve the plan, and have staff return with another plan.
