The Parks & Recreation Department is requesting the Council to approve the contract with Volusia County giving the City Community Develop Block Grant funding in the amount of $50,969.00 for FY 16/17.
The $50,969.00 funding will provide River City Nature Park a picnic pavilion to include ADA seating and an accessible walkway from the parking lot.
In 1999, the city of DeBary entered into a cooperative Agreement with Volusia County to receive Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding. As part of the agreement, the City must furnish the Volusia County Community Assistance Division with an annual plan to expend the federal dollars. The choice of eligible projects for the City is very limited. However, ADA improvements at public facilities are permissible expenditures under the guidelines and are the focus of the improvements presented with this package.The annual plan must be reviewed and approved every year. Designated projects are advertised and sealed bids are solicited for the designated projects.
Approve the contract to receive the $50,969.00 funding for construction of a pavilion at River City Nature Park.
