Summary

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) administers a grant program that provides funding through the Community Facility Grant Program to develop essential community facilities that provide necessary services to the local community. One of the priorities identified in the FY 2021/22 budget as shown in the Vehicle Replacement Plan for the Public Works Department is to replace three police fleet vehicles. In addition, the purchase of a TruNarc Touch-free Narcotics Identifier for the Police Department which are all eligible purchases under the USDA Community Facilities Grant Program. It is required that the Grantee (City of Fort Bragg) match 45% of the purchase costs of which $147,000 have been identified for the three police vehicles in the budget for FY 2021/22. The TruNarc device priced at $35,000 if awarded will be purchased using reimbursable matching funds from the Police Asset Seizure Forfeiture account.
