Appropriation of funds for existing contract with All City Management Services, Inc. (Amount: $100,000) (Action Item)
To obtain City Council approval to appropriate additional funds for an existing contract with All City Management Services, Inc., (ACMS) to provide crossing guard services in the City of Garden Grove.
The approved fiscal year 2018-19 budget included a five percent budget reduction citywide for all programs, excluding funds for sworn public safety services. As part of the Police Department’s budget reductions, funds for crossing guard services were eliminated in the amount of $190,000. Discussions with the Garden Grove Unified School District (GGUSD) regarding sharing the cost for crossing guard services were still pending after the school year began on August 29, 2018. As a result, on September 11, 2018, City Council approved re-funding crossing guard services through December 2018 while discussions continued with GGUSD and/or to allow staff additional time to identify other funding options.
Further discussions with the GGUSD have been scheduled, however, staff recommends re-funding the ACMS contract through June 30, 2019, to ensure crossing guard services remain intact for the remainder of the 2018-19 school year. The cost for this service through June 2019 is approximately $100,000.
The cost for crossing guard services through June 2019 is approximately $100,000. Funds will be need to be appropriated to the FY 2018-19 budget.
It is recommended that the City Council:
- Approve the appropriation of $100,000 to the FY 2018-19 General Fund budget.
