ASSEMBLY AGENDA/MANAGER'S REPORT
THE CITY AND BOROUGH OF JUNEAU, ALASKA

PUBLIC HEARING: Ordinance 2019-06(AH) An Ordinance Appropriating up to $1,000,000 to the Manager for a COVID-19 Conservation Corps Program; Funding Provided by the CARES Act Special Revenue Fund.

MANAGER'S REPORT:

The Economic Stabilization Task Force has been developing options for the Assembly to help the local economy recover from the harm caused by COVID-19. This ordinance would create an employment training program for people furloughed, unemployed, or underemployed due to COVID-19. This ordinance would provide a grant to Trail Mix, Inc., and supplemental FY21 appropriations to Eaglecrest and the Parks and Recreation Department for COVID-19 Conservation Corps programs. As of late May, Trail Mix had nearly 150 people interested in such a program.

 

The Assembly Finance Committee briefly discussed this topic during the budget process. The Economic Stabilization Task Force recommended the Assembly consider this program at its meeting on June 4, 2020.

RECOMMENDATION:

The City Manager recommends the Assembly adopt this ordinance.
