Staff is requesting City Council approve the agreement with Brooks & Dun to prepare our Gateway Park Playground Replacement ECHO Grant Application.
Brooks & Dun will provide professional grant writing expertise in the development of this year's ECHO Grant Application.
Brooks & Dun has completed three previous ECHO Grants for the City of DeBary and all three were awarded ECHO Grant dollars. Last year's ECHO award had the City of DeBary ranked as the overall number 1 ranking of all applications received. Brooks & Dun provide the City of DeBary with a reduced rate of $75 per hour with a Not-To-Exceed $7,500 clause in the agreement. Brooks & Dun has an excellent working relationship with City of DeBary staff. Also, Brooks & Dun is on continuing contract to provide grant writing services with Deland, Port Orange and Orange City.
