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

Ordinance 2020-09(AW) An Ordinance Appropriating $109,500 to the Manager as Funding for Security Camera Equipment for Capital Transit; Grant Funding Provided by the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, with Local Match Funding Provided by the Equipment Replacement Reserve Fund's Fund Balance.

MANAGER'S REPORT:

This ordinance would appropriate $109,500 for the purchase of security camera equipment for Capital Transit. Grant funding in the amount of $87,600 is comprised of Federal Transit Administration funds passed through the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities. The local match requirement of $21,900 is provided by the Equipment Replacement Reserve Fund’s fund balance. This funding will replace older cameras on transit buses with high-definition security camera equipment with wireless download capabilities that will result in operational efficiencies due to the staff time necessary to retrieve videos from the current system.  Additionally, this funding will be used to purchase cameras for the Downtown Transit Center.

 

The Public Works and Facilities Committee reviewed this request at its January 11, 2021 meeting.  

RECOMMENDATION:

The City Manager recommends the Assembly adopt this ordinance.
