The CBJ Parks and Recreation department applied for and was awarded funds from the State of Alaska, Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development to send a Parks and Recreation employee to Anchorage to attend an AmeriCorps program planning meeting.
Attendance at this meeting provided the department with information needed to determine if it was appropriate to apply for a grant which would allow Parks and Recreation to administer the AmeriCorps program in Juneau.
Attendance of this meeting generated the information that was needed, and it was ultimately decided that this was not an avenue that the department would pursue, and better handled by the United Way. The grant covered all of the costs associated with this travel. This ordinance is a housekeeping measure to accept grant funds.
