§ 2-803. Grant acceptance.  

Latest version.
  • (a) Following a notice of grant award, all grant agreement documents, including restrictive covenants or stipulations, if any, shall be forwarded to the finance director for an updated analysis of present and future impact on the city's financial resources. Within ten (10) working days following receipt of the grant agreement for analysis, a statement certifying fiscal impact shall be forwarded with the grant agreement to the city manager for review. It shall be the responsibility of the person preparing the grant application to pay close attention to grant acceptance deadlines and allow sufficient time for fiscal impact analysis by the finance director and approval by the city manager or city commission, as applicable.

    (b) All agreements for grants representing a cost to the city as stated in section 2-802(b) shall be presented to the city commission for approval. The updated fiscal impact statement prepared by the finance director shall be presented to the city commission with the agreement at the next regularly scheduled meeting following completion of the fiscal impact analysis. The city commission may authorize the city manager to execute the grant agreement documents or may elect not to accept the grant.

    (c) Unless the granting agency specifically requires city commission acceptance of a grant, the city manager is hereby authorized to execute agreement documents for grants that are certified by the finance director as representing no present or future cost to the city through local contribution requirement, restrictive covenant or other stipulation. The city manager is the sole agent of the city so authorized. The city manager, however, may elect to obtain city commission approval for the acceptance of any grant.

    (d) After execution of the grant agreement by the city manager and the representative of the granting agency, the city clerk shall file the original copy of the executed grant agreement with the official records of the city. Restrictive covenants or stipulations, if any, shall be attached to the grant agreement.
