SUMMARY STATEMENT:

Nicholas Farline, Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Director brought forth to City Council the Recreation budget during the budget work session on October 17. An additional request was made for the funding of a new dual-credit summer program for Valdez High School students. City Council requested a special work session on this topic for December 10th 2019. The purpose of this work session is to further explain the program.

On November 19th Director Farline brought forth an agenda item to the Parks & Recreation Commission to recommend to Council the approval of the summer program. The vote was unanimous in favor of the program, with three commissioners absent.

After working with the Finance Department to flush out a more accurate cost of the program, Director Farline determined the cost associated with the program is $54,092.00 with some additional offset costs presented in attachment #3.

To fund this program, a resolution would need to be brought forward to Council on January 14th to move the funds from 350-0350-55000 into 6200 Recreation.

Attachment #1 provides background information about the history of this program.

Attachment #2 is a copy of the complete Chelan-Douglas 4-H award-winning submission that specifically describes the program we are using as a model.

Attachment #3 will prove to be a road map for deeper discussion of this program.

Attachment #4 is the budget breakdown of the program.
