A Resolution Authorizing the City Manager to Execute an Agreement with the Virginia Marine Resources Commission for a $750,000 Grant from the Virginia Saltwater Recreational Fishing Development Fund for the Buckroe Fishing Pier Project and Appropriating the $750,000 of Grant Funds to the Capital Projects Fund.

 

 

WHEREAS, the City had applied to the Virginia Marine Resources Commission (VMRC), through the Virginia Recreational Fishing Advisory Board (RFAB), for $750,000 of grant funding from the Virginia Saltwater Recreational Fishing Development Fund for the Buckroe Fishing Pier project, and

 

WHEREAS, in May 2008, the RFAB endorsed the Citys application and subsequently the VMRC approved grant funding for the project, and

 

WHEREAS, these additional funds will allow significant enhancements to the project, such as higher quality lighting, site improvements and building materials, and

 

WHEREAS, the VMRC grant agreement requires that the City Manager be granted authority by City Council to execute the agreement, and

 

WHEREAS, because these funds are paid by VMRC on a reimbursement basis, it is necessary that $750,000 be appropriated in advance for use in the construction of the project.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Manager is hereby authorized to execute an agreement with the Virginia Marine Resources Commission for a $750,000 grant from the Virginia Saltwater Recreational Fishing Development Fund for the Buckroe Fishing Pier project.

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the $750,000 of grant funds is hereby appropriated to the Capital Projects Fund.
