Council Hosts Public Hearing to Apply for Law Enforcement Funding
The Grants Pass City Council agenda for the Wednesday night meeting, slated to start at 6:00 in City Council Chambers at 101 Northwest A Street, contains a public hearing before passing a resolution authorizing the City Manager to complete an application for law enforcement funding.
The resolution would authorize an application for funds from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant. The funds would be dedicated to pay hourly wages for a Group Life Councilor I and Transport Officer positions to expand the offerings of the Josephine County Juvenile Justice Departmentís restorative justice/early intervention program.
As a disparate jurisdiction partnering with the County, the city would retain four percent of the $15,485 grant to offset costs associated with administering the project.
The resolution is part of the consent agenda.
The council is also scheduled to adopt the water restoration plant facility plan and to re-adopt the cityís investment policy.
