Rancho Palos Verdes City Council
   

TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL

FROM: DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS

DATE: DECEMBER 17, 2002

SUBJECT: FUNDING FOR TEMPORARY TRAILERS AT THE POINT VICENTE INTERPRETIVE CENTER

RECOMMENDATIONS

  1. Adopt Resolution 2002______, a resolution of the City Council of the City of Rancho Palos Verdes amending resolution 2002-45, the budget appropriation for fiscal year 2002-03, for a budget adjustment to the city’s General Fund – Parks and Trails Maintenance.
  2. Authorize the expenditure of up to $ 10,000 to install and lease an information trailer at the Point Vicente Interpretive Center.

BACKGROUND

At the December 3, 2002 City Council meeting the City Council approved $19,000 of funding for one time and on-going maintenance activities at the Point Vicente Interpretive Center. This was done to allow the site to open up in early 2003 and remain open during the time the building construction is underway.

In testimony at the December 3, 2002 meeting, the Los Serenos de Pointe Vicente docents indicated that it would be beneficial if an office trailer could be placed at the site to provide a focal point for docent recruitment, outreach, and dissemination of educational materials for park visitors.

DISCUSSION

Staff estimates the cost to establish and maintain a trailer at the site to be as follows:

Placement of the trailer

$ 1,000

Trailer rental January 1, 2003 through July 1, 2002

$ 6,000

Establish utilities

$ 2,000

Monthly Utilities January 1, 2003 through July 1, 2002

$1,000

Total

$ 10,000

CONCLUSION

Adopting the staff recommendations will authorize the expenditure of up to $ 10,000 for the rental of a trailer for use by the Los Serenos de Pointe Vicente Docents for FY 02 – 03 while the building construction at PVIC is underway.

ALTERNATIVE ACTIONS

Deny the recommended actions and open the site without a trailer.

FISCAL IMPACT

This expense was not anticipated in the adopted FY2002-2003 budget. In addition the adopted budget estimated General fund revenues would exceed General expenses by only $827. Therefore this project will need to be funded from the General fund reserve. The amount of the project General fund reserve available for appropriation (which is the total General fund reserve less the General fund reserve policy level of $6,451,870) is summarized below.
