DISCUSSION
City Council approval is requested for the City of Long Beach (City) to accept and expend grant funding from the State of California Department of Parks and Recreation, Division of Boating and Waterways (DBW) for the Davies Boat Launching Facility project. On August 23, 2016, City Council adopted a Resolution authorizing the City Manager, or designee, to submit a grant application to the DBW Local Assistance Boat Launching Facility (BLF) grant program. The City’s grant application requested funding for the entirety of the Davies Launch Ramp Renovation and Improvement project estimated at $4,160,000. On October 25, 2018, the City was awarded grant funding from the DBW Harbors and Watercraft Revolving Fund in the amount of $300,000. The grant period is from February 1, 2019 through February 1, 2021.

The grant stipulates that monies will be used specifically for design phase costs related to engineering, permitting and inspection. Upon grant award, the City began working with Tetra Tech, Inc., on plan development, permit application, and design within the scope of the aforementioned grant stipulations. The City will apply for additional DBW grant funding for the project’s construction phase subsequent to design.

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Arturo D. Sanchez on December 23, 2019, and by Budget Management Officer Rhutu Amin Gharib on January 6, 2020.
