Title
Resolution authorizing an emergency appropriation of $75,000 of Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (CSLFRF) as part of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) for a Criminal Investigations Surveillance Van in Fund 746 ARPA Fund.

Staff Summary
* The ARPA was signed into law on March 11, 2021. On May 19, 2021 the County received $67,646,879, half of the amount the County will receive in total from the US Treasury.
* The funds can be used for needs associated with public health, to counteract negative economic impacts, provide services to disproportionately impacted communities, for infrastructure, to provide premium pay, for governmental operations in an amount equal to lost revenue, and for administrative purposes during a period from March 3, 2021 to December 31, 2024.
* The Sheriff's Department requested a surveillance van during the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 budget process, but it was not included in the Recommended Budget. The Law & Judicial Committee recommended, and the Finance & Administrative Committee concurred that this was a necessary and justified expense. Subsequently, the Special ARPA Financial & Administrative Committee approved the use of ARPA funding for this purpose.
* This use is not an allowable direct ARPA expense and therefore, it must come from the allotment for revenue replacement.
* Authority to spend appropriated funds and execute any and all agreements with partners related to this allocation and distribution of Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds is delegated to the County Administrator or his designee(s).
