Body
POLICY
 
The DTPW Director is requesting authorization to have the County Conservationist apply for and accept Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) support grants for fiscal year 2012.
 
BACKGROUND
 
The Committee on Parks, Energy and Environment also serves as the Land Conservation Committee (LCC) and DTPW-Environmental Services serves as the Land Conservation Department (LCD) and its Director as County Conservationist.
 
For several years Milwaukee County has received a staffing and cost share grant from DATCP to help defray the costs of the activities of the LCC and LCD.  In the past these funds have been used to help pay salaries, training, travel, cost share, small activities and to defray minor Committee expenses.
 
RECOMMENDATION
 
To foster the ongoing work of the LCC and LCD it is recommended that the DTPW Director be authorized to have the County Conservationist apply for and accept the staffing and cost share grants offered by DATCP for fiscal year 2012.
