The Parks & Recreation Department is requesting the Council to approve the contract with Brooks & Dun Grant Consulting at $75 per hour not to exceed $7,500.00 to prepare the ECHO Grant submittal for the Phase IV Rob Sullivan Park capital project.
This will be the final phase of the Rob Sullivan Park Master Plan. Brooks & Dun successfully acquired ECHO grant funding for Phases II & III of Rob Sullivan Park.
The grant writer was approved in the FY16/17 budget with the Rob Sullivan ECHO Grant Capital Request. Phased in projects present a challenge in completing ECHO grant submittals. Brooks & Dun have an incrdible record for securing ECHO funding for municipalities throughout Volusia County. Futhermore, their completion of phases II & III give them incredible insight to the scope of the entire project.
Approve the contract with Brooks & Dun to submit the Rob Sullivan Park Phase IV ECHO Grant Application.
