FROM: Mark Robl, Chief of Police
SUBJECT: Capital Funds Acceptance
The State Department of Corrections has agreed to give us $3,500 to purchase new lockers for holding prisoner’s personal property. (Our current lockers are over 25 years old.) These are capital project funds that are given out to community jails to purchase equipment, perform maintenance or for other needs that are related to the confinement of prisoners. We requested funding for the locker replacement during the capital funds budget process and have just been notified of the award.
I request that we advise the council of this funding award and ask for permission to accept and obligate these funds for the purchase of the lockers.
