1. Ordinances for Introduction
On May 1, the Assembly adopted Emergency Appropriating Resolution No. 2442(am), which appropriated funds for energy grants, loans, and conservation measures in response to the sharp increase in electricity bills. We have worked with both United Way and the Juneau Economic Development Council to develop the terms of the United Way grant program to qualified individuals and nonprofits, and the JEDC loan program to qualified businesses. This ordinance amends the resolution so that it will conform to the grant and loan programs that are being implemented. The ordinance amends the resolution in two ways:
(1) Instead of a loan to JEDC, which it would use to make loans to businesses, CBJ and JEDC are entering into an agreement for services to be provided by JEDC. Under the agreement, JEDC will make and administer loans to qualified businesses with funds provided by CBJ; and
(2) Instead of capping the allocation for administrative expenses at one percent of the funds provided to each agency, the manager will be authorized to allocate a reasonable amount for administrative expenses. One percent is not sufficient even though the agencies are working hard to keep their costs for administering these programs as low as possible.
I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular meeting.
